THE CUMSHOTS

ANLÄSSLICH DER BALDIGEN VERÖFFENTLICHUNG DES NEUEN ALBUMS „A LIFE LESS NECESSARY“ WAR ES AN DER ZEIT, DIE NORWEGISCHE TRUPPE THE CUMSHOTS INS KREUZVERHÖR ZU NEHMEN. WAS FRONTER MAX CARGO ÜBER NORDISCHEN METAL, DIE NEUE LP, LIVE-PORNO UND DIE SIEBEN TODSÜNDEN ZU SAGEN HAT, KÖNNT IHR HIER IM O-TON-INTERVIEW LESEN! FIRST SOME QUESTIONS FOR THE ONES WHO DON’T KNOW THE CUMSHOTS AT ALL: WHY DO YOU CALL YOURSELVES THE CUMSHOTS? EVERYONE THINKS ABOUT SEX AND PORN BY HEARING THIS NAME. Why not?! You remember it don’t you? And if it bothers you…fine by us. We’re not here to make any friends. If you can’t see past the name because of some bullshit, snob attitude, well, guess what…we don’t need you, so fuck off. We’ve had this name for 10 years now, and it hasn’t killed us yet, so we’ll stick to it. Forever. Deal with it. WHEN YOU ARE FACED WITH A NORWEGIAN BAND THE FIRST ASSOCIATION IS ALWAYS BLACK METAL. BUT YOU CALL THE NORTHERN METAL-SCENE A HELLOWEEN-KINDERGARTEN. WHY? Have you looked at them lately? Parts of our country are ABOVE the polar circle. We don’t have fucking pandas up here, so stop looking like one. And a sorry panda? Tears streaming down its made up face? 3 words for you. World. Of. Warcraft. Go home and masturbate to that. And the memories of your own mother getting into her bikini at the beach when you were 4 years old. Make up? Fucking make up??!!! WHAT’S THE SPECIAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CUMSHOTS AND OTHER BANDS? We like each other. Beat that one! After 10 years of rehearsing, recording and touring we still like each other. Love each other even. Not many bands can say that. And it’s showing in the music. IN WHAT BANDS DID YOU COLLCET YOUR EXPERIENCES BEFORE PLAYING MUSIC WITH THE CUMSHOTS? Me? Too many bands to mention. 20-30 shitty acts. 3-4 decent ones. Nothing like this one though. This is like playing in a band with your mother AND your girlfriend. But in a good way. YOU KICKED ASSES ON A GERMAN FESTIVAL CALLED SUMMERBREEZE SOME WEEKS AGO. HAS IT BEEN YOUR BIGGEST GERMAN FESTIVAL UP TO NOW? HOW WAS THE GIG LIKE AND WERE YOU SATISFIED WITH THE AUDIENCE’ REACTION? Thanks. Yeah, it’s the biggest german festival so far. Hopefully there’ll be even bigger ones in the future, but we’ll see. The show was good, but kind of difficult to do. It was so early (12 in the morning) that it was kind of hard to get the energy level up to where we normally are. Got there in the end, but we’ll do even better next time. The audience? Young, black and smelly. Just like we like them. ON THE 2ND OCTOBER YOUR NEW LONGPLAYER “A LIFE LESS NECESSARY” WILL BE RELEASED IN GERMANY. CAN YOU TELL ME THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS ONE AND YOUR PREVIOUS RECORD? It’s the best one. Enough said. IS THERE ANY CONCEPT IN THIS CD OR JUST SEVERAL UNCONNECTED TRACKS? Like on the last one (“Just quit trying”) the lyrics can be read as almost like a diary of my state of mind, from the time that I wrote them. We don’t lie as much as other bands. We don’t need to. So I guess that could be called “the concept”. Brutal honesty. Or just “A very good record”. That’s a concept isn’t it? WHAT’S THE MEANING BEHIND THE TITLE “A LIFE LESS NECESSARY”? DOESN’T SOUND LIKE A LIFE-AFFIRMING ATTITUDE. Correctomundo, little german person. It isn’t. I’ve never considered life anything but a punishment, but let’s not go there today. We’ve just released a new album. I’m trying to cherish this tiny, tiny moment in time. Don’t ruin it. WHAT ABOUT YOUR SONGWRITING? DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL PROCEDURE? I don’t write shit, so I really don’t know. I just show up at rehearsals and all the other guys come up with amazing stuff while I sit in the corner smoking and applauding. THE SONG “I STILL DRINK ALONE” IS ABOUT MAX CARGO, WHO SOULD BETTER DRINK ALONE. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Try it. Drink with others for a couple of days, and then by yourself for 6 months. I’m telling you, the amount of problems you’ll get into drinking “socially” will far exceed the monk like attitude of solitary suicide. Can’t be beaten. ARE YOUR OTHER SONGS ALSO MADE OF SELF-MOCKERY? It’s not self-mockery, it’s realism. I know I’m a piece of shit, but like most other pieces of shit I’m honest about my piece-of-shittery. But yeah, all the songs come from the same crusted heart. SOME YEARS AGO YOU’VE PERMITTED THE LIVE-PORN-PROJECT “FUCK FOR FORREST” TO PERFORM WHILE YOU’RE PLAYING ON STAGE. HOW DID YOU GET THIS IDEA AND WHAT CONSEQUENCES DID YOU HAVE TO TAKE? AND THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION: HOW WERE THE REACTIONS OF YOUR FANS? They (“Fuck for forrest”) sent us and e-mail while we were on tour in Germany and asked if they could come on stage and hold an appeal when we were gonna play the Quartfestival (Norways biggest). You know, to tell people to think about nature, pollution, whatever. We didn’t care, don’t care, will never care, so we just said “ok”. We played, they came onstage, fucked for 4 minutes, left, and we kept on playing. Afterwards we got arrested, paid a huge fine and never got to play a festival again for two years. As for the fans I have no idea. It was during “the wild years” so I honestly don’t remember. I HEARD ABOUT YOUR OWN SHOW IN NORWEGIAN TV THAT ILLUSTRATES THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN DETAIL? 6 years ago I sold my soul on e-bay, so I thought it was time to see how far a soul-less person could get into hell by committing each of the 7 deadly sins, one after one. Since I’m still here I think it firmly proves my point. THIS is hell. Right here. Right now. WHAT CAN YOUR FANS EXPECT IN THE FUTURE? More. DO YOU PLAN A GERMAN TOUR IN THE NEAR FUTURE? Yup. Keep checking our homepage thecumshots.org for further details. As soon as we know, you’ll know. IS THERE ANYTHING LEFT YOU WANT TO TELL? THE LAST WORDS ARE YOURS… Gun. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME!
