Crim released in 2011 its first 7”,in 2014 its first LP, thank to it, I discovered them (actually not too sure if it was because of the program on the radio “El Radar Benavides” or because a pal), this was followed “Blau Sang, Vermell Cel“, released a year ago.
You’re with the label BCore and HFMN (Hardcore For My Nose) is looking after the management of your band. On the top of it, your records are really good, you’re level is getting higher and higher each time.. basically you could live just from your music.
We reply all the questions from the van in our German tour between all of us.
(NIN) Barcelona and the surrounding area are well known for the punk and harcore scene, Tell us a how is the Tarragona’ scene?
(CRIM) There’s nothing to talk about! lol
Just kidding, there are few bands as The Jodes, Groggy Rude, Impuls, Pistol Please, The Gundown, Vondänikens, Mastegot, The Issues…There is almost no organised gigs, only groups like Bule Bule, Vortex, Zero and la RedStar (in Valls) have a few, so there is no many chances to play in our town, we always need to go where a scene is more consolidated and active.
What do you expect about anything you have pending to live/enjoy/discover as a band?
The question is the answer. We expect to enjoy as much as we can, doing what we love for several years. And of course, we wish to be awarded with a Latino Grammy.
You sing in Catalan, how do you explain, you and other bands that sing in a language barely known outside of Spain, are able to tour around the world?
It’s not in our plate, and probably we are none to answer the question. But from our side we can say we do all possible effort to make it possible.
What is the most full filled or tender moment as band?
The moment that make us full filled has been this morning when we had our breakfast at Jena (Germany) en Kassablanca.
Jezz, Have you realised how good you are?
Every single day, we realize how useless we are. Anything would be possible without all the people is behind that is helping us.
For who did you write the song called I ara et sents trist (I listen that song every single week)? Is it addressed to someone in particular.
To someone who will never realise it’s written for him once he read the lyrics.
Who write your bio in Facebook? I’m sure you are paying to him well to write something like that.
It´s not a bio just a press note. It was done when our last record was released. It was done by the amazing and incredible Jordi Sabatés, a.k.a. Unclu Garrot.
What do you expect about the tour that you will start soon?
We’re touring right now, we don’t have many expectations, just to have fun, meet people and bands. And it is coming true.
After a concert, Do you use to arrange everything and enjoy having a beer or you use more like partying late?
Depends, but we always have more than one or two beers. And, sometimes by doing so it ends up as an unexpected party.
Which band would you pay to share the stage with?
We wouldn’t pay to any band to play with.We would love to play with lot of bands but we won´t pay for it, of course. We´re catalans!!!! lol
What has it been the most embarrassing situation you have lived in a gig?
Thank god, nothing. For now, we don’t feel ashamed for anything done “on the stage”.
You have released just three records, but, Are you regret recording any song, or you think any of them should be developed a little bit more?
We are happy with all of the songs we have recorded. Each song represents lot of moments and feelings that we felt an lived when they were written. All of them have their moment and history.
What is the band you most enjoy sharing a concert with?
We have enjoyed with lot of bands, but if we have to name one, it is The Anti-Patiks. There are our pals from Vallés. We love them in an unconditional way.
Could you mention some bands that we should pay attention to?
The Baboon Show (Sweeden)
Serpent, Paüra, Corbs. (Barcelona)
Now that you are reading this, CRIM is back to Spain with lot of stories to tell.
