Feed your demons

Who is Blakula ?

BLAKULA IS A BLACK VAMPIRE, AN IMAGINARY CHARACTER WE CREATED OUT OF OUR IMAGINATION. HE WAS BORN IN HAITI, HIBERNATED IN TRANSYLVANIA THEN DEFROSTED IN NEW YOURK END OF SIXTIES, WHERE HE STARTS HANGING AROUND WITH THE ARTISTIC UNDERGROUND SCENE THEN FALLS DOWN IN THE EXQUISITE SPIRAL OF SELF DESTRUCTION, HARD DRUGS, WILD SEX.

HE DISCOVERED THAT HUMAN LIFE WAS MEANT TO BE LIVED AT ITS FULL SO HE DECIDED TO TASTE IT AT IT FULLEST, TO LIVE EVEN ITS DARKEST ASPECTS SO HE BECAME VERY « HUMAN » AND VULNERABLE.



Why have you decided to take the name of a hero of blaxpoitation’ film ? Are you fan of this type of films ? What film are you watchin ?


THAT NAME SOUNDS GREAT, WE CHANGED THE BLACULA OR BLACKULA NAME AS IT WAS IN THE MOVIE INTO BLAKULA. IT SUITED PERFECTLY OUR IDEA OF THIS CARTOON-LIKE SUPER-HERO CHARACTER LIVING IN THOSE FANTASTIC YEARS, AND IT SUITED OUR IDEA OF RE-INTERPRETING THE FUNK SOUND GIVING IT A DIFFERENT ANGLE, « WHITEFYING » IT AND MAKING IT DARK, ADDING THE ELEMENTS OF DIFFERENT MUSIC GENRES WE LOVE LIKE THE ELECTRIC JAZZ OF MILES DAVIS-DON CHERRY, THE NO WAVE VIBE, THE PSYCHEDELIA, THE DARK ROCK, THE AVANTGARDE SOUND.

WE LOVE THOSE MOVIES, YES, ALSO THE CULT 60-70 MOVIES BUT ALSO DARIO ARGENTO, QUENTIN TARANTINO, ROBERT RODRIGUEZ, DAVID LYNCH…ALL THE CULT HORROR-THRILLER-GIALLO-SCI-FI MOVIES.



Can you give us your influences ?


AH, TOO MANY! FROM VELVET UNDERGROUND TO GLAM ROCK, FROM PUNK-77 NEW WAVE TO AVANTGARDE AND CLASSICAL MUSIC, ELECTRIC JAZZ, FROM FUNKADELIC TO THE POGUES AND STEVE EARLE, THE LIST GOES ON FOREVER!

When the story of Bacula begin ? How this project start ?

WE STARTED THE RECORDING OF BLAKULA JUST AS WE DELIVERED THE DIAPHANOIDS ALBUM IN 2006, THAT WAS RELEASED IN 2008. WE RECORDED FOR ALL THIS TIME, OBVIOUSLY SOME FALSE MOVES AS IT WAS A DIFFICULT RECORD TO BUILD UP, MANY INFLUENCES AND SOUND TO MAKE IT LIVE TOGETHER, MANY MUSICIANS, DIFFERENT STUDIOS, OTHER MUSICAL JOBS THAT KEPT US BUSY. ALSO WE WERE NEVER SATISFIED WITH THE SOUND, WEE KEPT ON ADDING, CHANGING, REMIXING…

How do you signed at Bear Funk ?

WE WERE SIGNED AS THE DIAPHANOIDS, AND WE THOUGHT IT COULD BE THE RIGHT HOME FOR OUR NEW BABY AS WELL!

Can you give us a description of your sound ?

WE’VE CALLED IT GOTHIC FUNK FOR ITS DARK SIDE BUT IT’S FULL OF DIFFERENT SPICES, AS I’VE WRITTEN ABOVE. IT’S THE FINAL RESULT OF MIXING ALL OUR MUSIC LOVES AND PASSIONS. ON OUR BLOG IN http://www.myspace.com/blakulaofficial THERE ARE BRILLIANT REVIEWS THAT SPEAK BETTER THAN US REGARDING THE MANY SOULS OF THE RECORD!
