I was to mention French music these days, you'd probably think of
Daft Punk. Sadly, despite the sonic possibilities, Daft Punk are
not remotely punk. Tin.RP, on the other hand, aren't remotely tin,
but DDN and his wife B*L do make an unholy punk rock racket. C'est
la vie. "I'm not a fan at all of the punk culture, so I got no particular
haircut nor piercing, but I like underground punk music like old
Conflict, Crass and Dog Faced Hermans. I always thought their way
of being ironically suspicious of everything, including and starting
by one's own beliefs and attitudes, was healthy."
"But seen from 21st century's France, punk attitude seems a bit
ridiculous even if it's coming back again in clothes this year.
Ready-made NO FUTURE tee shirts look like a great summary of what
our society is to my eyes. You can make money/ fashion/ trends out
of absolutely anything."
little danger of Tin.RP becoming a trend in the near future. Not
unless the kids get fed up of mobile phones and start getting into
full frontal electronic noise assault. "I see many people using
computers to have a perfect crystal-clear sound. We are the exact
opposite. We use software bugs a lot, so we use a lot of crashing
beta versions and old softwares. We don't fight against clicks and
we don't fight digital distortion."
new album Hun_geR was inspired by the Knut Hamsun book and "the
strange behaviour we have in the so-called civilized countries with
food. The book is a lot about "trips" created by sustained starvation.
Depending on your equipment there may or may not be 10 seconds of
silence before or after the 13 original tracks: this is one of the
software bugs I was talking about. We called this track StarvingSilence,
conscience and a techno take on the Extreme Noise Terror line in
maniacal decibel abuse? Surely a shoe-in at Digital Hardcore. "I
sent a copy of the first Tin.RP album to DHR. Nothing came back,
not even a "your music is shit, keep it." So I wrote a rather aggressive
mail to them [and] Mrs Gillian answered herself. She asked me to
make a track entitled Fuck you Gillian at DHR if I wasn't satisfied,
ain't that funny?".
