I started creatin music at the age of sixteen. Me and some Friends had a Band, we played only Punk and Goth because it was not so hard to play, first three Months I played Guitar, than I changed to the Vocals. After some Experiments with Nu-Metal and ThrashMetal I left the Crew and discovered the World of Electronic Music.
My first Demos was some Mix of 90s Industrial, PsychoWave, MeloNoise and Spoken Word, I tried some more Experiments with other Projects till I founded in 2007 "The Captain Kirk on LSD Experience". If I really remember, the Net-Label "TrashFuck" was in search for some acts for a 99-Bands-Sampler with only 5-second-songs, so i did one with TCKoLSDE, this was the first Kirk-Track and is also on the first EP "God blast my Ass", the Beginning of my personal musician new Age. All the last Years I was Vocalist of different Bands, most time Punk or HC influenced.
Since a little more of one year, you started a lot of new projects like roMeow, iampervert, the Un-zen, Cunt Fuckula,... sometimes far away from the power violence of your main project The Captain Kirk On LSD Experience. Could you explain us what pushed you in this way?
In 2011 i realized that i have to work with my Mind in another way, so i tried to give some special feelings special Sounds, "iampervert" (4-way-Split under construction featuring the excellent Viktoriya Natoloka and other Friends of me and their Ritual-Ambient-Projects) and "Cunt Fuckula" (Remix-LP under Construction, working Title is "Pariah Dance Party Vol. 1 - Cunt Fuckula is remixing a lot of Acts like System of a Down, Britney Spears, David Hasselhoff, be sure this shit will be deep) are dark, but "iampervert" is melancholic and "Cunt Fuckula" is full of Creepy Thoughts.
"roMeow" is some special, because it's more cheesy and glitchy but it's more crazy and danceable than the other Projects. "The Un-Zen" was born on a live Kirk-on-LSD-Show, April 2012, Merlin (second Kirk-on-LSD-Live-Vocalist and sometimes Studio-Singer) created some Ideas about a new Band with more Live-Rockabillity on Electro-Trash-Style, so we wrote the EP "The ultimate Violatör" and workin now on our second Release with more tragic'n'danceable Melodys and a Live-Guitar, so the demos soundin like an insane mix of 90s-Power-Industrial and a special Voodoo-NintendoCore-Bastard, i'm very excited for some Live-Shows.
"Jane van Noise" is my Melo-Psychelic-LowBit-Project where i start some Journeys into nostalgic Melodys and acoustic Spells. In 2012 i did a Live-Show at Sean Derrick Cooper Marquadts "Friends of Sagittarius"-Festival #3, was the first Live-Show where i only played Synthesizer and did no Vocals, only drinkin, smokin and playin, was a special Trip, the Music put you far in another Time because of the wonderful LowBit-Flow and the sweet'n'Horny Melodys, it's an other Feeling than the 8-Bit-Chiptune-Nintendo-WhatEver-Sound of "The Captain Kirk on LSD Experience". So I gave 'em other Existence.
"Vincent DeVine" is in the most way like "TCKoLSDE", but it's my Project where I want to sing only german, because of the Lyrics, it's important to tell People in my Country in my Language what's wrong, because it doesn't matter, if I sing this in English and now one knows what i'm tellin. And I think this Year Vincent DeVine will start some other ways, next CD is under Construction, I will sing on a lot of international UndergroundBeats of Musicians I prefer to sing on the Beats like "V3rb Th3 N0un", "IKILLEDTECHNO" , "Mstr Cylndr" and some other Dudes, be sure it will be a cheesy EP.
So i'm thinkin about other Projects, so i'm startin now with "Muspelhain" (Ritual/Doom/Electronica) and "Fuck you for loving me" (Acoustic/Melodramatic Pop-Song/Anti-Pop) some Stuff with other Background and I got some more Ideas for 2013. Music is the best we have.
What's are your past or actual influences to your music, from the underground to the "mainstream" scene? Did some band really changed your vision of music?
For me is no "mainstream" or "underground", for me is only "Emotion" or "no Emotion" - i hate it, when People got no Feeling or no Idea of a Feeling and to make it, when they only do anything - so I understand Artists, which do this under Drugs and yeah, I like what they found out, but it always should have a special background, formed by an Idea or a Thought, a Picture in mind, something what is inside the Artists, when I feel something like this, when I listening to Music, fuck off which Genre, than I like it, than I can feel what the Person feel or I can try it, than it's interesting for my Mind to fight with some Sounds or relax on some Melodys, than the Mind is workin, but is the Music boring because of uninspired StandardBullshit or when I know the End of the Song before the Song is endin, it's the Sign to search for some other Sounds.
Now I prefer some Ritual-Doom, spheric or melancholic BlackMetal, PowerViolence/Punk, DarkWave, Italo-Pop, something with interesting and fuckin deep german Lyrics like "Janus" or "Samsas Traum" and a lot of different Ambient-Stuff. I think a lot of MusicStuff did something with me, but sometimes I'm sure that Artists like Meat Loaf, System of a Down and Daft Punk are the "MainBase" or "really important" for my musician Understanding. So since i listen to Music in this special way of healing the mind, I realized thousands of wonderful sounds in all Generes, so many fuckin interesting Ideas to dance on it, chill on it, swing on it, fuck on it - I can't really say where I got all the Input, it's too many Stuff, i'm always open Minded for new Ways of Music and I love it, when someone mix some totally different Genres to One.
How could you describe a typical Captain Kirk On LSD Exp. concert?
A "TCKoLSDE"-Show is even a Space-Show. We play a Mix of different songs from different LP's, all time Best of, never the same Live-Mix on a second-Show. So Classics are "Electro is dead" or "Hey Rebel, it's da Pussy in me", they are in every second LiveMix, because on Life-Shows they got the most Bounce-Sounding.
Goreky is the Master for the Live-Electronic, because he got the technical Know-How for installing, mixing and controlling on Live-Shows. Sometimes he created really great SoundEffects and Live-Effects for the Berlin-Shows, like to work with him on TCKoLSDE-Shows, it's always a funny Trip. Merlin and me only singing and performing but not in an "Electro"-Way or something like this, we come from the MetalPunk and so we sing and perform on Live-Shows, always dancin, screamin, bangin, growlin in some special Dadaistic Ways, because on Live-Shows we do some more spontaneously Vocals with Input from the last Days of time before the Live-Shows, Problems with Friends, Problems with Work, Problems with Desire, something what we feel in this Moment, when we're live on stage, only actual, no phrases.
Most Times we played on the local "Trash'n'Core"-Shows with a lot of interesing Underground Experimental-Acts, and everytime we got a crazy Light-Show. But in the End a "TCKoLSDE"-Show is more HC-Punk-Show than a Techno-Event. On the most Shows we played we got some mixed Crowd, but the People was always open minded for this awesome Disco-Trip. Most Times they dance their fuckin Ass off.
You're, if I make no mistake, exclusively involved in the free download, netlabel scene, and this for years now. Could you explain us this choice?
Yeah, I like the Idea of free Music for all People, so I try to be a Part of the Free-Download-Scene, because no One should pay Money for Art. I can understand the People which want to make Money to live from the Music, but when I do this, than I would only take the Money for Live-Shows and Merch, Not for the Music, you can always download all my Stuff for free. It's important that People try to take the Money out of their real Life. Money is for the Life in this artifical World, not for the World in me, for my own Universe, my own Experience.
To find out what i am, I don't need Money, I need Music, Life, Contact, Love, Breath, a second being, but no Money. For some Special Shows like "Friends of Sagittarius" or the first "TCKoLSDE"-Show I did some special DIY-Physical-Releases, but this was really for the special Moment of the Show, not for Money, these CD's was always Gifts. I think I will do this 2013 in the same way. I tell you, what I see, that's why my Music is free.
What do you plan for 2013?
So I told a lot about all Side-Projects for this Year. With "TCKoLSDE" I work now on the Jubi-Release "Mental Throatfuck", this will be a special CD with Back-to-the-Root-Sound meets Fuckin-more-Psychedelic. If this LP is ready I want to try to release this on "Sirona Records" and "TornFleshRecords" at the same time, because both are important for a lot of Kirk-on-LSD-Releases, and this is the "5-Years-of-Kirk"-Birthday-LP.
So I got some other Live-Projects in Berlin. With some Dudes from my Hometown I start now a melancholic HC-Metal-Punk-Band with german Lyrics and I play Drums in a experimental PowerViolence-Band. In 2013 I will try also playin Bass in a Stoner/Punk/Doom-Project and a Powerviolence-Crew headed by Scomba, the Vocalist of "Nina Tendo".
I hope I can play a lot of different Live-Shows this Year. I want some more different Experiences when I do some Punk or Electro, i'm excited what awaits me, I think it's fuckin important to do everything live, and if it's only for one Show, programmin can every Human, but do that Shit in a Live way, than you earn the most Respect, I can give to you.
Specially for 2013 I work now with Scomba on a special Order-Service for Tapes, Shirts, Patches and other special Music-Shit for DIY-Releases. I will start to release a lot of different Types of my favourite Music from Ambient till Thrash, from Ritual till Electro. I'm also thinkin about special Collabs with Net-Labels like a "Sirona Mixtape" with collected Tracks from all Releases, bounded by me for a special Tape. But I need more Time for all the Details, I hope we start in Spring/Summer this Year. There will be also official "Kirk-on-LSD"-Shirts, "iampervert"-Shirts and "The-Un-Zen"-Shirts.
How would you describe your own Style of Sound?
Most times when I talk with People about my Music, from Kirk-on-Lsd till RoMeow, from iampervert till Jane van Noise, People don't know what Music I do, because they never heard some Music like this before. It's always confusing for me, because I like the real tagging of some Music, the talkin about the Mixin of different Ideas and Desires when someone creates something, but when People don'know how to describe my Music, it's confusing for me, because of my Thinking of the World is in this Moment under Construction.
I'm always tryin to put a complete strange feeling in a song and to produce with 100% Emotion inside, if People don't understand this, what am I? That's a little strange thinkin, but most time i'm wondering when People say me, that I do a lot of Party-Music. I think I do always Melancholic Music. It's funny to discuss about this and what People see and feel in my Sounding. I take my Music to set my Mind free, so when It's powerful and tragic, than it's not partylike for me, but interesting that some People enjoy this in the other way.
