The night full of madness with Hocico.
The very own tendentions and style, the whole world of the
phantasies and imagination where the music is the expression of
the feelings and reflection of the negative reality and violence,
meanwhile the lyrics contain the critics of the current Universe's
system combine in the one word sounding as "HOCICO".
The concert of this Mexican duo was awaited for a pretty long
time in Russia. And to make the fans of the technoindustrial sounds
happy or technogothic… whatever the show of this act had the place
in the Moscow's Tochka club on the 24th of November.
Erk Aicrag and Rasco Agroyam in the frame of their world tour
presented to the audience their latest album 'Wrack & Ruin'.
After the rest from the previous gig in St. Petersburg last night
they had a meeting with the journalists.
- How was the concert on Oct, 22 in
St. Petersbourg? Did you like the audience there at the show?
Hocico: The gig took a place in not that big club and it were
about300 people of the audience in. We liked the Russian public
a lot. Talking of the energy of the people which came to see us
we could tell it is very similar to the energy of the Mexican
fans, that's cool!
- You work as duo. As it is known
you tried to involve the guitarist in the band once. How did it
Hocico: Ye we had the live experiment in this way but to be
honest nothing good quate so we decided to continue the work as
- What do you think of the Mexican
Hocico (óëűáŕţňń˙): They are really popular worldwide, that's
true : ) Therefore we have the negative reaction to them because
these operas do not rexlect the real life of our country.
- What music do you like?
Hocico: Hard to say definitely… Different kinds of… The rock,
punk, electro, metal…
- Any russian musicians in the list
Hocico: Unfortunately we didnt listen that much but I (Erk)
liked a lot the soundtrack for the Tarkovsky movie "Solaris"
which was recorded by Edward Artemiev.
- Have you a plan to release the new
Hocico: Yes the couple of the new tracks is recorded already.
It should see the light in 2005.
- Had you the chance to try Russian
vodka being here 3 days already?
Hocico : YE:) And it reminded the Mexican tequila to us, the
same hard taste!
For sure the meeting with Hocico wasn't over yet! The concert
followed. During one and half of an hour the wave of the real
drive attacked the brains of the fans. The signs of the forthcoming
in a week Halloween celebration were already clearly seen here.
The black wears and chains, the avantgarde haircuts of the people
gave the especial atmosphere. The interesting fact was that many
fans tried to jump up on the stage to dance with Hocico but nothing
to wonder here because this madness could make people do crazy
things! All who wanted to sign cds and posters as well to shoot
the shoto of guys for a memory. And the words of Erk from the
stage in Rusian "Come on! Come on, Moscow!" will sound
yet long in the heads of the fans!
