MENAGRAM: Punk Rock and DIY (interview with Enri and Wally) – Punkadeka – Punk web Magazine

1) Ciao ragazzi. spoke of your project. Chi sono i menagram?

E: i Menagramo was an acoustic punk duo born in 2016 right after the formation of a punk rock trio called Slugline who told me, Walter and Masu (Teenage Gluesniffers, Breakmatt Fastgyver). Il trio è durato poche prove e avendo in mind this thing of the duo ho tirato in mezzo Walter, di cui ho sempre apprezzato la voce.

2) Do you use a record label so you start in digitale so that I will arrive there with your vinyl record: what did I see in this recording process?

E: Initially, our internal “regulation” was: we do not walk more in the studio, we do not publish physical nulla, we do not handle the stickers…it is not our own thing, but we say that the main reason is stated by the fence spingere to the massimo Ribcageour cousin album used in a non-fortunate period (March 2020)

W: E’ avvenuto tutto in maniera piuttosto naturale e spontaneousa. Initially we felt our own twosome of butt were material in the shortest possible time, and this selection was born and new 4 EP usciti exclusivamente en digitale.

Indeed, our idea at the beginning was proper to continue on that road, but at a certain point we realized the need to publish a true and proper record that we had data there. “Ribcage”I use for Professional Punkers his CD other than in digitale.

At the same time, it arrived because of the proposal from Wild Honey Records to have an LP containing and few present in “Ribcage” più 4 inediti, e siamo felicissimi di essere riusciti a farlo!

3) What are the bands that I saw that were greatly inspired by the creation of the Menagram?

E: for how much my guard initially had dirti Social Distortion, Against Me! and singer-songwriter like Johnny Cash. Appena ho scoperto the American anarcho-folk scene is scoccata poi la scintilla e da lì è stata tutta in discesa. Le mie band preferite non rientrano però nel genere, I love a lot of bands like Lawrence Arms, Drug Church and Dillinger Four soprattutto per quanto riguarda i testi.

W: I don’t know what’s wrong with Enri’s testa when I’ve seen Days ‘N Daze alive, so the idea of ​​the washboard might be part of it (obviously I’ve lost it, now an impressing memory).

4) I saw that I know a lot that I can say that the DIY ethic is something that is viscerally legit. Perché consigliereste questa ética a giovane punk band in procinto di formasi?

E: essentially perché è l’unica possibilità! I will think that I dopo the first try if this person is interested in your band è da pazzi. Very well build the best possible of the basso, sporcandosi le mani e facendosi le spalle larghe encircling the far part actively di una rete. If something arrives in più or an intereste maggiore is born, soddisfazione è doppia.

W: As Enri has said, senza dover farne per force an ethical discord, credo sia l’unica possibilità per un banda pena nata. A questi livelli did not think infatti that there was an alternative to DIY and did not think that if they could talk about scelta in senso stretto.

5) Turning your vinyl back to you, how were you born and related to Wild Honey Records?

E: With Franz ci si conosce da anni, abbiamo collaborato spesso insieme per date e quant’altro. Abbiamo conosciuto Simo a La Spezia ad un nostro live e ci siamo giurati amore eterno… per fortuna, come tante cose, tutto nasce dall’amicizia.

6) Il washboard is one unknown musical instrument in Italy, at least for how much it supports the punk genre. Come è nata in te (Enri) la passione per questo modo di fare musica?

E: My friend Elias has introduced me to the American anarcho-folk scene with my ascoltare band like Days’n’Daze and We The Heathens. He suddenly hit me with the possibility of having the box even in the end of his sleep, grattando a pezzo di lamera estamente following the following principle when the battery sounded. Appena ho iniziato a turnar mi sono reso conto di quanto fose comodo non dover smontare e rimontare la bateria tutte le sere e da lì in poi non ho più abandonedato. Ma mentirei se ti dicessi che dietro c’è un pensiero più complesso di questo ahahahahaha.

7) Quale è il pezzo a cui seven più legati e perché

AND: Menagramology It is a bonus track from the album Appena uscito on vinyl and I think it is one of the pezzi migliori that abbia scritto. Walter doesn’t agree with me, it’s exactly how I always write and I’m very happy with the storytelling of the fish, very simple, almost repetitive, I risk photographing a period of my life using very simple images that all appear to be at the same time stesso hanno mille chiavi di lettura. I am not very proud.

W: Per me the answer to this request is very late to the period. Ad esempio nei primissimi anni di attività della band avrei risposto surely Out of place Perchè was the pezzo in which I lived maggiormente in that moment. Ad oggi ti direi forse “Dwayne Johnson” o “RIBCAGE” semplicemente perchè mi piace molto sound him alive, but I’m sure I’ll have this interview when I’ve changed my mind.

8) I vostri pezzi sono nati tutti per i Menagramo oppure sono stati originally scritti per le vostre other band and arrangiati folk punk?

E: due pezzi, A soundtrack for hating myself and Informers Sono nati rispectivamente ate a pezzo degli Slugline e uno dei Teenage Gluesniffers. The rest are written by i Menagramo.

9) I saw a definite folk punk band?

E: difficult request. The definition of folk punk is surely comfortable but at the most powerfully strong tempo. Even though it was used very thickly, it continued to be held by a punk rock group. Al netto della grande offerta acoustica tras musicians punk rock, I arrive to think that every single folk punk and nessuno sia folk punk allo stesso tempo. Deep down, what are we talking about? Without rhetoric, the folk is popular music, fatta per lanciare un messageggio; I thought that this is a tonnellata di gruppi that we can be racchiusi in this definition, and forse the sense of ending is this…

W: Personally when I talk about the Menagram I prefer to describe it as a Punk Rock band that plays acoustic instruments or communicates divers dal solito.

10) How is your experience at The Fest in Gainesville?

E: pazzesca. I will arrive from another part of the world and sleep in a full post of person, some of the quali cantano persino i pezzi, è stato vermente stupendo. Per quanto mi riguarda, one of the best experiences always. Il The Fest è qualcosa di speciale, completely remote from the festival to cui siamo abituati. Consigliatissimo a tutti, at least one volta nella vita.

W: This is incredible, an immense soddisfazione. Non avrei mai immaginato che un giorno avrei avuto la possibilità di suonare negli Stati Uniti, ed invece è successo. See the person with our maglie sing our songs is davvero very exciting.

11) What do we expect in the immediate future?

E: surely molte date, anzi se volete portarci nella vostra città scriveteci! Poi non nascondo che già qualche pezzo nuovo c’è, per cui chissà…

W: Many concerts and any surprise! Etra un po’ anche nuova musica.

12) Lasciate un message ai lettori di punkadeka

E: RECYCLE YOURSELF ALWAYS

W: Grazie per essere arrivati ​​fino in fondo!
