Q&A: A Band of Bitches, Soundtrack for the Pre End of the World

They are mysterious (we can’t see their faces), they are soft porn rockers (as they describe on Facebook), and they come with an agenda (to take over the world, á la Brain, and like claimed in the band’s dossier). Mexico’s newest party band A Band of Bitches (or una banda de perras) breaks out into the Latin alternative scene this year with an explosive single/video “Noroeste Caliente” flaunting their love of alcoholic refreshments and a boisterous good time — though they say to have always been around. It is also rumored that some of the members may be of Plastilina Mosh. Indeed, A Band of Bitches delightfully shock us with their rambunctious rock skills and loose ethics.

Next week, Ushka Rappat, some guy with a weird accent, Fex, Fuk Dude, and Pace will release their freshmen album, The Pre End of the World Soundtrack, via Sony, just in time before the Mayans predictions of 2012 are said to arrive. Due to the quintet’s sick talents and visionary ways, we had some urging questions for A Band of Bitches. And yes, responses were returned. One of the masked members (he didn’t reveal his identity) talks about the new world order being a marketing strategy, why Jesus Christ would make the perfect band mate, and why it’s important to pack a zombie survival kit.

bandovExactly where and in what state of mind do you find yourself while writing the answers to these questions?

I’m in a Nuevo Leon state of mind. It’s like being sober and willing some beers…actually I really want one.

Excuse my language, but who are the bitches in A Band of Bitches?

The interviewers =D

[Awkward silence]

I read in your dossier that you seek to control the world order. Why?

I don’t know, but it should be something good if all the politicians in the world want it. [Laughter]

How is our safety being protected by you concealing your identity?

Did i said that? Nope, you are not safe anyways =D

Are there any specific messages in The Pre End of the World Soundtrack you want civilization to take when listening to the album?

Yes, hot stone massages, foot massages, and ear massages. OH, messages! I thought you said massage. Well, there’s no specific message, but anyways you can take the massages when you hear it. You will feel relaxed and in the mood. [laughter]

What survival kits should we pack when this “end of the world” comes?

Actually, there’s not going to be any end of the world. It’s just the marketing plan that we are doing to sell our record, but don’t tell anyone. Anyways, you can get a zombie survival kit, those things are for real, man. I saw a couple of them last night at a party. They do some jagger bombs and shit, and they become some kind of living dead dudes. That shit’s for real, dude. Believe me.

In your song/music video “Noroeste Caliente,” you shout that “un chingo de cerveza” is what you love. Is cerveza the secret ingredient for your band being so prophetic?

Yes, that aside from video games and hot chicks.

“Shock Rock” versus “political rock” What is the real difference to you?

It’s very similar. Both of them [genres] have ugly band members. That’s why they aren’t pop stars.

If you could revive anyone from the dead to play with A Band of Bitches, who would it be and why?

A lot of people. One for example is Jesus Christ. He has a lot of fans, you know. [Another one would be] Marco Polo. He would make a good tour manager. Or maybe [also] Nikola Tesla. He knows electricity very well, and he can be a good producer of electro music, or something.

By this point, you have revealed plenty about A Band of Bitches and I now fear for your protection. What will be the next steps for you?

Fear not for me, but rather, be afraid of me. But by now getting a beer. Cheers dude! =D
