Chuckamuck – Interview

40500034Wolf_Daubin

In the 60s every country needed it’s own native language Rock’n'Rollers. Wirtschaftswunder-Germany only had Peter Kraus… that white Elvis (sic) was not a hip shaking Bürgerschreck, but grandmas Liebling with incredible stupid teeny Schlager lyrics. Haha, Krauts, that’s all you got?
Back in the presence: CHUCKAMUCK crawl out of a rotten basement in Berlin – so 50 years had to pass that Germany finally got it’s own GarageRocknRollers?! Listen to these guys rumbling through 5 decades of garagerock in the footsteps of Chuck Berry, Little Richard, early Beatles, The Sonics, Stooges, Ramones, Dickies – and last but least, no Peter Kraus (except for slightly silly lyrics about girls and icecream). Their concerts are hilarious fun, and their second album “Jiles” is almost better than their fantastic debut “Wild for Adventure”. Get in touch with CHUCKAMUCK.

Who are you, how long does the band Chuckamuck exists? And what does “Chuckamuck” mean?

All: The band exists for 6 years now, it’s a secret where the bandname comes from and we are: Jiles(J), Mohair Sam(MS), Lorenz O`Tool(LB) und Oska Wald(OW).
MS: I had a vision of a burning cake telling me the band should be called The Beatles (with an A), but unfortunately the bandname was already taken.

When I heard you the first time I thought: I hope the boys never learn to play their guitars properly! And now you recorded your new album with REAL producer Moses Schneider. Did this change your sound? Did the way of production change in contrast to the work on your first album?

LB: Actually we had a real producer for the first album, too!
J: Moses came into our rehearsal space to get to know us and liked the sound in our basement so much, that we took this sound into the studio.
OW: It was different that we tried to record 12 singles with 12 different moods on the new album.

Sometimes you sound like RnR in the 50s, like Pre-Beatles in a garage, like The Sonics, but you even sound like the Ramones – you are rumbling through decades of garage rock. What are your musical influences?

OW: The time we recorded the album I listened to a lot of Orchestra Baobab what you can hear on the last song.
L: Of course we have a lot of influences, but we don’t try to copy, but to create our own sound!

Your song “354 722 384″ – that’s “Fanmail” by The Dickies, right?

All: What’s the song called? We love The Dickies, but never heard of this song!

You don’t seem to be too fond of too much musical perfection. What do you offer instead of that?

OW: Musical Perfection IS important to us! I don’t know what’s this is about…
MS: It’s more about getting a perfect take with a perfect feeling. And a few small mistakes are sometimes helpful
.

Who do you like to record a song with?

J: With Fettes Brot.

What was your most exciting show till now?

MS: The first time I got on stage with Chuckamuck and I could barely play bass!
LB: Roskilde
OW: Fusion
J: Fete de la Musik in 2011

Who’s your favorite?

OW: Ish Marquez
J: My brother
MS: Hellshovel
LB: Bronco

German language in pop – who influences you, who writes good lyrics?

OW: I actually find all the German bands shit.
MS : I like FSK.
LB: Ton Steine Scherben and Element of Crime.
J: I go with that.

Is there a specific scene in Berlin you are part of?

OW: We don’t feel being part of any scene here, but we like The Gondors und Jachzen Bachzen.
MS: Is there a scene in Berlin?
LB: I would like to go into the Bunker.
J: Nope.

Please name your favorite 5 albums!

1 LB: “Break Up Break Down” by Reigning Stound
2 MS: All of Little Richard
3 OW: “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” by Lauryn Hill
4 J: “Be Brave” by Strange Boys
5 Alle: “Jiles” by Chuckamuck
