Paco avrundar 2015 med att låta scenkaraktärer från Sverige och utlandet enligt ett standardiserat formulär och ur ett subkulturellt perspektiv utvärdera 2015. De "intervjuer" som är gjorda med icke svenskspråkiga har jag låtit bli att översätta, såväl för att spara tid som för att inte omedvetet färga svaren.
Marc Russo är mannen bakom och i fronten för det legendariska Marseille-bandet Warrior Kids, som inte borde behöva en närmare presentation.
Music Release of the year: I’m not listening so much new records but for me the French band and our friends of SHOOT THE DOGS have done a great record this year called “we are a gang”, good oi music with good lyrics, and good guys, the only problem is that they live in St Etienne and have an enemy football team of Marseille, not as much than Paris or Lyon but it’s a big problem ahahaha
Best gig of the year: oh the same than the record of the year, Shoot the Dogs in St Etienne with Warrior kids, have seen Jello Biaffra in Marseille, good gig but too much politics for me.
Biggest disappointment of the year/worst release: I don’t like to criticize other bands, I’m sorry, it’s not hypocrite but it’s a kind of respect, if I don’t like, I respect people that like, just a thing, big respect to Stiff Little Fingers that have not cancelled their gig in Paris just after the terrorists attack, Jake Burns say that when he was young and lived in Belfast, he hated cancelled gigs because of terrorism, and he has done what he thinks, big respect to him and a big sucks to some bands that have cancelled their gig, they are not true for me, I prefer not to tell you the name of the bands
Some other thoughts on the scene of 2015? Did something special, bad, sad or spectacular happen? Some bad news with death of some musicians of our scene, it’s life and music must go on
What's your plans for 2016? (Jag skrev fel här i utskicket, och frågade efter 2015 - därav svaret/Paco) 2015 is near of the end, I’m happy to have played in Germany again and in Zurich and also in Marseille our town (last time it was in 2012). We changed of label, after Randale, we are now on Sunny Bastards records (another german label) and Nico from Bords de Seine has produced the two Warrior Kids compilation called “les kids d’estrangin” volume 1 and 2, the first from 1982 1991 and the second from 2001 2015.The next year I hope Warrior Kids will do another record, we are working on new songs and hope to come back in Stockholm for the third time, the proverb says : never one without two, and never two without three ;o) good luck to all the zines and to all the gigs organisers, hello to all our Swedish friends and like Pike says : allez allez allez allez; thanks to you Paco!
