A chat with City Weezle’s Simon Fleury

Alternative, Experimental, Folk, Interview, Metal, Prog, Rock

With a new record approaching close over the horizon, and numerous hungry fans to feed, we sat down with City Weezle frontman and founder, Simon Fleury; chatting everything from cabin fever to Japanese pentatonic scales!

AM: What would you say are the key differences between your debut record and the upcoming No.2?

SF: This album certainly has less Primus and Mr.Bungle influence. Even though we can still hear some Patton/Primus/Bungle colours in there. There are certainly more keyboard and piano sounds on this one thanks to the wizardry of Axel Steinbiss and CSL Parker; two excellent players/composers. CSL really encouraged me to get back on the City Weezle stuff and taught me free form improvisation which is super fun and it had been a long time since I’d done a lot of improv. For those things I’m very grateful and, of course, for his parts on the album..

It was so much fun working with Axel, he’s super zoned in and could just do anything. He composed some really cool key lines for the album and pulled really amazing takes out of the bag; all in his stride, He’s also one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met, Germans not being funny is a post-war myth. We’ve just had a Hitler joke we put in our press kit published in a review of German Punk Magazine so I think the proof is in the pudding there ;).

This one was recorded in many different places over a much longer period of time whereas «Taboo» was recorded all in the same place in the space of about a year. I think this one is definitely less chaotic, intentionally so, ‘Cluedo’ is the final track on this album and it fulfils the role of the track that brings the crazy. Of course, there’s a bit of craziness in all our stuff in different ways.

She’s a Stomper’ is our most straightforward rock song and I really dig it. It’s got a very Melvinsy feel. We haven’t really released a straight hard-hitting rock song before and this is certainly a new feel to our catalogue. In any case these are eight new diverse tracks we’re 100% happy with and can get behind and I can’t wait to perform them live.

AM: What do you think you learnt as a musician from writing No.2?

SF: From an educational perspective, I learned to write string quartet lines and it’s given me a better vision of how to approach orchestration for other instruments in the future I’ll definitely be delving into that a bit more on certain tracks.

It’s also given me a second round of collaborating with guest musicians which was also really cool and I’m really grateful to everyone who put a little piece of their magic onto this album.

AM: Did you encounter any challenges while writing/recording No.2? How did you overcome them?

SF: Yes there were many barriers to making this album not least the distance between all the personnel. It’s certainly one of the reasons why it took so long. Mixing this album at distance with Gautier Serre (Igorrr) was a lot of bouncing mixes back and forth and that was definitely the hardest part from my perspective.

But I really want to thank Gautier and think it was worth it as he did a great job, he’s responsible for the album having a great quality of sound. There were obstacles and a lot of flights booked to record this one but as with anything worthwhile it took motivation and perseverance to overcome those obstacles and finally get to the result we wanted.

AM: How would you describe the most dominant emotions coming from No.2?

SF: I’d say like most of our music it has a theatrical energy and there are moments of mystery and emotion. The most personal and emotional song for me is “Even Weezles get the Blues”. It was a very alcohol-fueled part of my life where I’d just split with my GF when I wrote that track and was feeling the solitude of those emotions. So while it seems like a funny upbeat track it actually has a very deep meaning for me.

In a fun way, I guess it’s me singing about my problems back then, therefore the song title makes perfect sense.

AM: Do you have a general songwriting method that you stick to or does it come from within the moment?

SF: Well I have different methods of composing and I don’t like to stick to just one. Sometimes I’ll write mostly the music first and then only have one or two vocal hooks along the way while imagining what the vocals will sound like. Sometimes more recently I’ve been finding vocal ideas first and then just finding the music to suit the vocals and I think it works really well. Like ‘She’s a stomper’ was mainly written like that.

Igorrr has done some composition sections within our tracks on “Taboo”. Sometimes we’ll create things as a band in a rehearsal room and take each other’s ideas and develop them or alter them.

I have a method of composing I’m sure other bands like “The Ruins” use too maybe? It’s to record an improvisation and have the other instruments learn it and record over it.

I call it “Comprovising”! So you record an improv and the other instruments record over it in a structured manner. So it sounds tight enough to be written but comes from a completely spontaneous performance. We’ll certainly be fitting it in on future tracks.

AM: Do you have any interesting or funny stories from the recording process?

SF: We tracked the drums and guitars out in this lovely little cottage in a very remote area in the Nyre Valley in Co.Waterford, nearly Bally Macarby.

Many thanks to The Fabie Family and Henstep McGrath of “Crow Black Chicken” for letting us use the place for recording, it was a really nice little drum room in the upstairs of the little cottage called “Gypsies Cottage”out there you get a real old Ireland feel, it’s kinda like going back 50 years in time.

A pub with a shop attached to it and the people to match, it was really cool. So we were very isolated out there, no phone signal, no internet just the basic equipment I had and the tunes to be recorded. We recorded the drums in the space of two days out there with “Ai Uchida”, all credit to him he’s a great guy and an amazing drummer!

I went out there to track the guitars for “She’s a stomper” by myself and it was a completely different ball game. I started getting cabin fever as they call it. It was like the Shining except I didn’t even have my wife or kid! With no internet and no telephone connection, it felt really really weird. I stayed at it for about two days and then got super depressed, scrapped everything and came back to civilisation

But it was very fun tracking out there with the lads other than that whacky experience!

AM: Can you tell us what it was like to work with Gautier Serre a.k.a Igorrr on this project?

SF: When I decided to get making this album I hit him up straight away with the question, ‘Would you be game for mixing and mastering it?’ Cause he’d done our 1st LP “Taboo” and I think he did a great job.

Plus I trust his ear. He’s a guy who’s been making top quality albums since I met him so I trust him on that front. He knows how to balance things well and get really great sounds. So I was delighted when he agreed to do it. Even though we did all of this at distance bouncing things back and forth and I haven’t seen him in ages I’d still consider him a friend. He was always super supportive of us and even jumped in a van to drive us around Europe for the Taboo tour.

He threw in a few little sprinkles of sound on No.2 where he saw fit and I think it worked out really well that way.

AM: How was City Weezle originally formed?

SF: Initially, I met a really wicked prog guitarist, Sylvain Ducloux, AKA ”Cloux” in ATLA music school in Paris where I was taking courses and he made this really insane prog guitar album called “Full Fool” and he invited me to do some vocals on a few tracks.

That was my first time participating on a professional quality recording – up until then I’d just done my own demos on my 8 track where I’d play all the instruments for the most part. From those demos, I had a bunch of tracks that I wanted to make a fusion band with and I selected those tracks to make the 1st demo of CW with “Cloux” on guitar, Eric Carrere on drums and Maxime Gilbon on Bass.

Eric Was playing with Cloux at the time and he’d done drums on my Demos too. Max and I used to mess around playing covers of queens of the stone age and Primus with this other summer. I feel lucky that I’m still very close friends with those guys to this day. They’re great people and great musicians.

AM: How did music first enter your life? Do you have any standout memories?

SF: The first song I remember hearing as a kid is that “Dire Straits” track “Walk of life”; I must have been about four, it was on the radio and my mother was cutting celery. Every time I heard that song after that I would get the smell of celery and, vice versa, every time I’d get the smell of celery it’d bring that famous keyboard line of that song into my head. I only really started getting into music around age nine or 10 when I got into Nirvana.

Before then I’d had a few of those Now compilations. Discovering Nirvana was obviously a life-changing moment as it was for us all. Shorty after I got into Metallica and Alice in Chains, another pivotal moment was discovering Mr. Bungle Age 16; I’d discovered Zappa shorty before then.

There was also a legendary singer song writer named “Warwick Embury”. He wasn’t famous but he really should’ve been.. He was good friends with Donovan and had come from the really thriving music scene in the UK to live in Tipperary, Ireland.

I imagine he wanted to get away from the hustle-bustle of London and found solace in Tipp. English guy, real deal rock and roll legend who used to come round to our house and sing tunes and improvise lyrics and he was super fun and entertaining. He was a very fun, very cool guy, real heart and soul of the party. He wrote great songs and he was a massive influence on me too. Unfortunately he’s passed away now but he left a lot of great happy memories. His music lives on. I’d advise anyone to go and check out his stuff. Really great songs.

AM: I’ve seen that you’re a Francophile and also becoming fascinated by Japanese culture! Is this something that you think has ever leaked into your music or could do so in the future?

SF: Yes that’s 100% accurate I’ve always been into the french language and now I’m a fluent french speaker. I learned it from having lived over there for years. That’s where City Weezle was initially founded and I still have great friends over there.

Yes it’s worked its way into our music a bit. On our latest album No.2 on the 3rd track Maestro Mafioso, at the intro of the song I have some lyrics in french and I sing them with Pedral and Mina of “Vladimir Bozar ‘n’ ze Sheraf Orkestar” one of my favourite bands!

We also do a rock cover of a french pop song “l’amour a la plage” there’s a version of it on the “Lysergik tea party” EP; there’ll definitely be some more french stuff in future!

Yes, it’s only now I’m starting to learn some Japanese and am very fascinated by Japanese Culture. I feel very lucky to have two great Japanese members in the band and really looking forward to gigging over there with the lads and learning more about the culture. Musically I’ve only learned the Japanese minor pentatonic scale and I wrote a really cool sounding intro with it once – we might break that out of the bag and make it something hopefully. Look forward to learning and hearing more.

AM: How do you believe that City Weezle fits into the prog scene?

SF: We initially come from the underground scene in France where Igorrr, Pryapism Vladimir Bozar and all these bands were kind of our contemporary’s. I think our music is quite diverse and will remain so we can be appreciated by the open-minded members of many different types of audiences.

I could see us opening up for any band we’d cite as an influence and fitting the bill very well, I think we fit in many places; we’re a fun band and we put on a fun show! It should fit right in everywhere. (Probably not in all-metal show line up but we’ve done it before and didn’t get murdered by an axe-wielding maniac, but who knows? Maybe next time it’ll happen 😉

AM: What is the main mission statement of City Weezle?

SF: Our mission is to keep people entertained as fuck and bring this super fun music to as large an audience as possible in this lifetime all while sharing the love of the music we love and the influences we channel through our music.

I believe it was Frank Zappa who said “Music is the Best”.

No Limit To InHibit: Alt Rock Artist Releases New Single, The Quest.

Alternative, Experimental, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

When you first lay eyes on this very abstract and insightful music video by the ever-challenging artist Inhibit, you are faced with a black screen that fades into a face full of scars. A frightening thought, right?

Describing himself primarily as a poet, Inhibit has studied the piano since he was five years old. Based in Brussels, the 21-year-old boasts an unusual background as a former racing driver and qualified lawyer – highly retrospective of his peculiar and unpredictable style of music.

Plastered with scars on his face and his back, ‘The Quest’ depicts Inhibit as a complete outsider who walks around a city wearing a mask though, upon revelation of his true face, everyone he approaches turns and runs in disgust.

Hurtling towards 400,000 YouTube views in less than one month, ‘The Quest’ sees InHibit examining the hypocritical reactions of those around him to his real persona, when how he is treated when not hidden behind a mask.

Watch the Eye-Popping Video to The Quest here: 

Composed by the artist himself and featuring his keyboard and vocal skills, the video too was his own creation, featuring his own scarification designs and storyboard. His first book is to be released shortly, as well as a collection of his poetry.

Back at it: Four Crooks Release New EP ”Black Magic.”

Alternative, Indie, Rock

Taking lockdown as their cue to gather their collective talents, West Midlands-based Four Crooks took to a remote farmhouse to write and record their new EP, and are now unleashing the results to the world.

Four Crooks consist of vocalist and guitarist Dave Morris, Guitarist Eamonn Russell, Bassist Toby Barnet and Drummer Dan Quinton-Jones. Having actually met over a bar altercation, Eamon and Dave shared a common Bond in music and how it should be performed.

They formed a band with Toby and Dan and took advantage of the lockdown to record a new, hard-hitting EP.

listened here:

Black Magic by Four Crooks is led by the title track, a meditation on the addictive qualities of women and substances of all kinds – both a warning and a celebration of everything that can get you high and take hold of your senses.

The Black Magic EP also features Feel Alright, a song of redemption which sees someone working their way through a difficult relationship and walking out with their head held high.

Paranoia, a thudding, far heavier track looks at how it really feels to be trapped mentally with feelings of anxiety and doubt.

All in all, Black Magic is a trio of tracks that are honest about mental health and relationship battles.

MeMe Detroit Return as “Mean Rock n Rollers” in New Single

Rock, Rock n Roll, Singer-Songwriter

MeMe Detroit’s new single brings about the classic sounds and angry vibes that you would typically get in an archetypal ‘Rock n Roll’ song.

Describing it as a ”Calling” and a ”Deep Lifestyle” within the lyrics, ‘Mean Rock n Roller’ was written as an anthem to anyone who feels pressurised to adapt and conform to societal ideals.

Mean Rock N Roller is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek song that we had written as a bit of fun but at the same time says ‘fuck you’ to the limiting beliefs that are pressed on us by society as we grow up. You can basically be, do or have anything you want in life when you put your mind to it, so never settle. It’s pointless”.

MeME DETROIT

Mean Rock n Roller can be streamed below:

With 200 gigs under her belt, MeMe Detroit has become known for her highly energetic, immense and furious live shows. However, even away from the live scene MeMe, alongside drummer Kallum McEwen, are still able to give quality music and entertainment for their fans.

They are currently rallying their fans to help put together a music video, whilst keeping them entertained with a constant supply of new music via exclusive streams on social media.

MeMe Detroit continue to gain traction within the UK music scene as they have managed to land regular airtime on Kerrang! Radio, Janice Long’s show on BBC Radio Wales and have been picked for Fresh on the Net’s ‘Fresh Faves.’

LESSER GLOW: Cvlt Nation Debuts Nullity Full-Length From Atmospheric Doom/Sludge Metal Practitioners

Rock

Cvlt Nation is currently streaming Nullity, the latest full-length from atmospheric doom/sludge metal practitioners LESSER GLOW in its confounding entirety. The debut comes in of the eve of the LP’s official release via Pelagic Records.

With Nullity, LESSER GLOW rips open a massively wide and confident blend of traditional doom meets melodic metal, paired with the likes of hardcore, post hardcore, noise rock, post rock, and beyond. Molding all these into one cohesive mix, LESSER GLOW stands out as a refreshing and unapologetic ally brutal take on heavy music.

Issues the band, “Nullity was a chance for us to expand ideas we began with Ruined. There was never a finite idea in mind, neither for the band nor the record, and throughout the writing process we tried to explore that; follow the excitement, pull from all angles of influence, and push the dynamics and sounds to new territories.”

Adds Cvlt Nation,“There may have been a time in human history where, as a species, we understood ourselves as part of a whole; one part of a symbiotic relationship with the planet. But those days have been lost to most of us. Now we’re a scourge; parasites that feed off the corpses of every other living thing on earth but most of all, ourselves. That idea is what breathed diseased life into the new album from LESSER GLOW, and the dissonance and wrath wash over me in waves while I listen to this filthy slab of sludge!”

Stream LESSER GLOW’s Nullity via Cvlt Nation HERE.


LESSER GLOW’s Nullity will be released on CD, LP, and digital formats. For preorders, go to THIS LOCATION

Rock

MAMA

After their three successful long players “Ikarus” (2008), “Wizard King” (2011) and “7 Deadly Sins” (2016) they are ready to rock again.

ME AND THE REST‘s new motto is: We Are Bulletproof“, and that’s what they are; immune to the quick changes in musical styles of the past 30 years, true to their Hard Rock, characterised by catchy melodies and peppered with great hook lines. They remain standing and celebrating their Hard Rock… expect an exciting year filled with great new music – one new track every month!

ME AND THE REST is:

Jürg Theiler – Vocals
Edel Murchie – Bass
Jan Moser – Drums
Jürg Götz – Guitar
Antonio Schiavano – Guitar

AN INTRODUCTION OF ME AND THE REST

ME AND THE REST – the Hard Rock band from Zurich (Oberland region) on the road playing the Rock’n’Roll circus since 1991. With more than 6000 sold copies of their CDs and over 400 (and counting) performed concerts on that trail, they never once lost sight of their “long live Rock’n’Roll” vision.

Real, authentic and true-to-the-core, they celebrate their music with their signature riffs, wonderful hooklines and killer vocals. As supporting act of SOTO (Scandinavien Tour), Molly Hatchet, DORO, Krokus, Jane, Don Dokken, Rhino Bucket and many other well-known established groups, they grew to learn at the feet of the masters, polishing their live act to soon become the talk of their peers and many fans.

On stage, be it large or larger venues, they grew to reach their audiences’ inner hearts, drawing them into the magic of, as how they see it, the Rock’n’Roll dream. Whether it was the stage of the Hard Rock Café in Oslo, the Hall of Fame in Wetzikon, Z7 in Pratteln, the Alpenrock House in Zürich, the Albani-Club in Winterthur, the Open-Air Appenzell or Europe’s biggest Biker meeting in Sumiswald (Bern), ME AND THE REST really rocked them till they dropped. With consistently positive concert critiques, strong newspaper and genre magazine reviews about their CD releases, they placed themselves as a musical pearl in the demanding world of Hard Rock.

The band name stands for “All for one and one for all”; Three men and a woman – all focused on “one goal, one family, one band”. Each band member is simultaneously me and the rest. It is clear for all in this ‘family’ that there is no place or room for egocentricity. They stand both close and true to the fountainhead of Rock music. Rock’n’Roll leaps instinctively from the guts of each member. Their love of the art form and its message clearly envelopes everyone that hears their music. The spirit of Rock feeds the audience as well as the band itself and is reflected in both their music and words. Driving anthemic riffs, bodies drenched in sweat, they live their lives for that hunger and that fire. That’s what Rock’n’Roll truly is all about.

Central American band ready to rock the world with new video

Rock

Native to El Salvador, Steady Rollin’ are the rock band you need to listen to this year. They have just released their video to their latest single, “Impossible”, the long-overdue return to the powerful combination of blues, rock and story-telling lyrics which characterized such musical behemoths as Led Zeppelin and Cream.

Taken from their forthcoming album, Love & Loss, “Impossible” follows on from the hugely popular track “When the Judgement Comes” and its super-charged dance remix courtesy of Elyse Rich, set a course from 80s synth pop to modern flourishes of stomping delight, all wrapped around the pounding, relentless rock of Steady Rollin’. Love & Loss is the first full release from Steady Rollin’, 10 tracks which tell love-related stories from lead singer Fernando’s real-life experiences to a musical backing which twists between emotional blues, agile, sinuous rock and a squall of alternative power.

The rock band, comprising Benjamin Andrade (brand ambassador for Yamaha drums) on drums and backing vocals, Gerardo Pardo on bass and Fernando Poma (known best as hugely influential businessman, Managing Director of the largest hotel operators in Latin-American, Real Hotels and Resorts and director at Grupo Poma, champion of El Salvadorian music scene) on guitar and lead vocals, have already captured the hearts of minds of audiences across their native El Salvador and South America and now look to spread their message to the rest of the world. 

Get to know the guys more on their social channels below and enjoy their new video ahead of their album release later on this year.

Be prepared to be cast under rock magician Tadini’s spell

Rock

Fresh from playing in rock bands all over the world, Tadini is a one-man army of sound you won’t want to silence this Spring as he releases his new single, The Arsonist. 

Armed with a guitar, a phalanx of Moogs, the odd Mellotron and a theremin set to ‘stun’, Tadini is a one-man band, drawing deeply from the musical wells of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the maelstrom of rhythms and melodies from his native Brazil. Turn up the volume to 13, switch on the lava lamp and get your orders in at the virtual bar, this a glorious nod to the rock giants of old and a first glimpse at a modern musical magician at work.

Listen to the teaser for Tadini’s debut single, The Arsonsit

Once you listen to his music, it won’t surprise you that Tadini comes from a multicultural background. Born in Brazil to Italian parents…then going to a Chinese school where he learned to speak Mandarin…now settled in Los Angeles, it’s little wonder that Lucas Tadini’s music is a journey not only through his musical influences but also the sounds of the cultures he has been exposed to including Brazillian bands TüR and Mais 55 and Skunk Oil in LA. 

A fascinating character and one that you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on this year as he prepares to release his debut album Collective Delusion. But, whilst you wait, follow the newest rockstar through the links below to keep up to date with his latest releases…

The Beatles and The Strokes combine to inspire Apache Rose latest single

Rock

It may not be a classic amalgamation of inspirations but Russian indie-rock band, Apache Rose combine sounds from the British Invasion of the Sixties and the Alternative guitar bands of the Nineties in their new single Blind Spot and we’re loving it! 

Apache Rose are the Russian musical offensive we can all be joyful about! Built around the Muscovite engine of Ilya Novokhatskiy, Apache Rose is far from Russian interference, it is the clarion call for the return of ultra-catchy melodic rock, with the earworms of The Beatles and the raw swagger of The Strokes. Apache Rose’s latest single is Blind Spot, a ‘tribute’ to reckless taxi drivers worldwide and with an overarching theme of being careful not to put yourself in situations you can’t control.

And if you aren’t already super intrigued by the band, despite being based in Moscow, they have attracted a worldwide audience already with over 10,000 Facebook followers and over a quarter of a million YouTube views of their last single. 

Apache Rose have been recording in a studio in the basement of the historic Central Telegraph building, 100 metres from The Kremlin, surely the most appropriate base for a Russian guitar attack of epic proportions?!

Their new single Blind Spot precedes an EP planned for Summer 2020 – in the meantime give the guys a follow below.
