Sounds from underground/File N°60

sometimes all that you need is good melody that will remind you Summer when outside is snowing. group «Wild Books» do it very well, enough to fall in love as we did with some 90s. bands. so don't pretend you don't love it

0. name of the band
Wild Books
1. where are you from?
We are from Warsaw, Poland
2. what kind of instruments/equipment you use? do you use some particular record technique? which is your method of composition?
We use Fender Jaguar/Vintage 12 string guitar, Witkowski Bass, and the drums. Sometimes we use Korg Monotron to add some extra spice. We have recorded both our records in a small house near the woods. We are working on the songs in our rehearsal room.

3. what do you think about the music context nowadays and how you place yourself in? do you feel a part of any scene?
Lots of cool bands are around nowadays. We don't feel part of any scene, but we like to tour and split gigs with befriended bands. No matter the 'scene' factor.
4. do you think that nowadays has still sense talking about "underground"?
Sure. It has always been this way and still is. And we think that the void between underground and mainstream is even bigger now than it was in the 90s for example.
5. do you play live? how does the public react to your music?
Of course. We have played over 70 times. We hope that audience like our music. We have played small venues as well as big festival and it's always fun! We really enjoy playing live.
6. Genesis P-Orridge said "Our records were documents of attitudes and experiences and observations by us and other determinedly individual outsiders. Fashion was an enemy, style irrelevant.". What do your records represent to you?
To us, every record is like a photography of a band in a certain moment of its life. The first demo was an acoustic solo act recorded on a 4track tape, first album was recorded as a duo, the sound was heavier. The second album is less song-oriented and more spaced-out. We are going to record third album as a three-piece and it will probably sound even more different from what we were doing in the past.
