Interview with Jacki Stone from Vains of Jenna on the new album

16 03 2009

New exlusive Ink N’ Sleaze interview with Vains of Jenna drummer Jacki Stone!

Thank you very much Jacki!

Vains of Jenna is currently touring Sweden again, you guys have spent a
long time playing dates and staying in America, what was that time like?

Jacki Stone: Touring all over America was a dream coming true! We did
everything from small shitty clubs, to big amphitheatres, and driving in
our van for 15 hours in snowstorms, to relaxing in the sun by our tour
bus! It’s been a lot of fun… When we didn’t tour we lived in L.A. I love
that city and I can’t wait to get back.

Then after America, what was it like coming back to Europe and playing
shows again in your own country?

J.S: I had know Idea of what to expect here in Europe. We did like 15
shows over here before we left for the states, so it was hard to tell if
we had a follow in Europe. But so far so good, it’s been some great shows
in Sweden that’s been sold out and now we are touring with the cool chicks
from Crucified Barbara, they rock! Played some shows in Italy and toured
England with Viking Skull… that was good times!

Is there a difference between shows/crowds in America and Europe?

J.S: It’s pretty much the same I think. It really depends on where you
play and how many people there are etc.

What’s the best part of being in Vains Of Jenna?

J.S: That’s a though one… I’m just so glad I got to do what I want in my
life, and that is to play my drums and tour! The four of us are best
friends and we are so strong together… Always pushing to get the best out
of every situation and we all take care of one another. Friends like that
don’t grow on trees.

Your debut album “Lit Up/Let Down” was a great succes, the band is busy
writing and recording a follow up for the debut, is there more pressure in
making the album than when you were making Lit Up/Let Down?

J.S: Yeah it’s been more pressure on this album, but that has only been a
good thing.
It’s a totally different situation with this album. First of all we
recorded in a real studio this time with a producer etc. “Lit Up” was self
produced and recorded in a cabin in 1 week and wasn’t even meant to be an
album. This one have so much more work behind the songs and they all
sounds different from each other and I really like that.

“Lit Up/Let Down” was a hard rock album with a hearable influence from
Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith and other classic rock bands, What kinda music
can we expect to be on the new album?

J.S: All the songs kicks ass! So many different styles of music are on
this album. It’s still rock n roll but you can expect a Vains of Jenna
album that is SO much bigger, with SO much better songs and SO much better
produced than “Lit up”.

The band recently released a second video for the song “Enemy In Me”, will
that song be on the album?

J.S: Yes.

Is there a possibility of sharing some song titles that will appear on the
album?

J.S: Not quite yet. Hopefully we can post some of the titles in the
beginning of this summer.

And perhaps the album title? If there is an album title already that is..

J.S. That one we are still working on.

When can we expect the album to be released?

J.S: Hard to tell. I’m hoping this fall.

Now I would like to ask you a couple of questions with a little less depth
in it..

What bands or artists influenced you the most?

J.S: Nirvana was a band I listened to daily for like 10 years… There are
so many bands, but to name a few: The Who, Guns N Roses, Aersosmith, The
Stones, Zeppelin. Right now I listen to Atreyo a lot.

What’s the best song ever made?

J.S: ohh, that I don’t know.


If you weren’t in Vains of Jenna, what kind of work do you think you would
be doing?

J.S: I would probably have a really boring 9-5 job and I would be day
dreaming about being in Vains of Jenna.





The Barbarellatones – Not Dog…Snow-Lion!

23 02 2009

Close your eyes and picture this, the Doors getting into a fight with a bunch of dragqueens. What do you hear? You hear the new Barbarellatones record “Not Dog…Snow-Lion!”

This album ain’t got the kind of music I usually listen to, this is way more laidback and a bit trippy, but I like it anyway. It does also contain a huge amount of humour. I think when you smoke a joint or two and put on this record you will have a great night, you might flow just as much as the music does. 

I love “I Don’t Give a Damn!”, the music is kinda country like and the lyrics are just way too funny, I was listening to this album with a friend of mine and we just fucking laughed our asses off.
For all the N.Y. Dolls fans out there, there’s a great cover of “Bad Girl” on this disc. There’s also an appearance of the German Queen glamorous weirdess: Nina Hagen on the song “Nina Hagen”, which is about her.

So if you wanna have a good ol’ trippy time, go get some hasj and this Barbarellatones record.

Kiss Or Kill..

16 02 2009

So lately I’ve been seeing and hearing a lot about this band called Endeverafter. I loved their track “Baby, Baby, Baby” on the free cd “Sons of GunsIII” from Classic Rock Magazine, and magazines and blogs were pretty positive about this album so I figured, why not get the album and write a little review, even though it was released in 2007..

Endeverafter is poppy in a rocking way. These are some radiofriendly songs with mellow chorusses. But still, there is a lot of guitar violence on this disc.
“I Wanna Be Your Man” kickstarts the album with thunder drums and bass-n-guitars of lighting. Fast vocals which sound quite like mr Axl Rose when there’s some screaming involved. This first song might also be my favorite on this album. Second song “Baby, Baby, Baby” is a song I have heard many times before thanks to  CRM, and is a songs I just have to sing along to with the chorus. Love the guitar solo on this one. The intro of “Poison” sounds like Iron Maiden mudwrestlin’ Eddie, once again, I love the solo on this song, hats-off. “Long Way Home” is a very beautiful ballad with very nice musical arrangements. I can lose myself in this song..
