RELEVANS

Citater

I denne sektion kan du læse de citater, som Geigers redaktion med jævne mellemrum har fundet frem fra de store musikarkiver.

"Jeg går i trods / ligesom barnet vi alle var / og har intet / jo måske min nysgerrighed intakt / for vi trives åbenbart ikke længere i uenighed / jeg troede i for mange sekunder / på diskussionen som en slags fred."

Jomi Massage synger om "Det ukendte" på albummet Skandinaviske Klagesange (2006)


"Det er trættende. Folk er dovne. Min gamle lærer sagde altid, at den første lovmæssighed var inerti, og alle har det, og nogle har det mere end andre. Men musikjournalister har det virkeligt meget, for de bliver nød til at lytte til tusindsvis af plader hele tiden, og redaktøren siger dén og dén plade får første priotet, og de siger "okay, så lad gå", og så skriver de, at det er tungsindigt og mørkt, og så er det sådan noget med, at de har læst en biografi, fundet noget på nettet og læst nogle anmeldelser, og så flikker de et eller andet sammen og siger "værsgo, her er dit bras"."

Mark Eitzel fra American Music Club om pressens beskrivelse af ham, som den store lidende kunstner. Fra Geiger #16/17


"Jeg giver ikke meget for den store rock'n'roll kliché om, at man vil inspirere folk til at lave musik. Vi ønsker i stedet, at vores musik vil få visse folk til at holde op med at komponere. Min ambition er, at de mennesker der lytter til vores musik og bliver inspirerede, gentænker deres musik og forhåbentligt kommer op med noget bedre - de har ikke fattet ret meget af det, jeg laver, hvis de i stedet bare spytter ligegyldige kopi-produkter ud."

I denne måned finder Geiger citater frem fra bladarkivet. Her er det tyske Markus Popp, Oval. Fra Geiger #9.


"Skammens Vogn er absolut legende, men legende betyder ikke nødvendigvis useriøst. På en vis måde er kunst vel netop en sfære hvor man tager legen alvorlig. "

Nikolaj Zeuthen fra Skammens Vogn om leg og kunst. Fra Geiger #18


"Everybody is becoming like ... a Stasi agent, constantly observing himself or his friends."

Ralf Hütter, Kraftwerk, om moderne mobilteknologi


"The thing that's always bothered me is the idea that musicians are somehow touched by God with talent. That's bullshit – it's all work. Hendrix was a kickass guitar player because he worked at it; he wasn't born a guitar player. That's why I loathe that movie Amadeus. The idea that Mozart was touched by genius, it's total bullshit. It takes credit away from him, really. It's an insult."

Dylan Carlson, Earth


"I never had to really fight because I never thought I would do this. It was just like the other around. I was picked by the hand of someone up there who said, “You will do music”. I never thought, even my parents never thought I would make music. I was so naive in a way. I was not expecting anything, I was just really passionate. I was just taking every opportunity to go to parties and meet people because I love this music. Then, when I started to DJ I was not expecting to be booked anywhere, I just bought records for fun. Then my friends told me I should play, and then it worked. Then I realized I was living from it. I was not expecting anything, not expecting to be famous and not expecting to sing. It was just for fun and everything was a bonus."

Miss Kittin om sin karriere


"I could compare my music to white light which contains all colours. Only a prism can divide the colours and make them appear; this prism could be the spirit of the listener."

Arvo Pärt


"Of course voting is useful. But then again, I don't put a big glow to it. Voting is about as essential as washing yourself. It's something you're supposed to do. Now, you can't go around bragging, expecting to get props because you voted. That's stupid."

Chuck D fra Public Enemy


"The truth is you can't expect anything, but I really am dead if I don't get my record out this year."

Kevin Shields fra My Bloody Valentine i 1997!


"I remember walking out of Fahrenheit 9/11 and I almost felt like I did something. “Yeah, I’m totally against it and I’m anti-Bush and I’m doing something to correct it!” But really I just watched a movie. I went back home and got stoned. It gives you this false idea that you’re doing something."

Julian Gross fra Liars om forskellen mellem protest og protest


"All these people are staring at you and it's like you know when you have a conversation with someone, there's eye contact, but you don't stare. You don't fucking stare at every square inch of their body.. their face, their neck, their fingers, their breasts, their butt, their knees, shoes, clothes, their face, sweat, lips..."

Cat Power om det værste ved at spille live


"One day I'm going to write a straight-ahead story. I really want to, but I can't at the moment. I'm not very good at it right now."

Stephen Malkmus


"Musikalsk var vi selv inspirerede af Joy Division og The Cure, som ingen andre kendte der på skolen. Eller i byen overhovedet. Vi lyttede også intenst til Sort Sol og Ballet Mecanique, og skrev underlige breve til Martin Hall. Henrik havde til Reaktions første koncert - endnu uden mig - annonceret deres musik som nyromantisk avantgarderock, og da folk af vane begyndte at danse til musikken til gymnasiefesten, sagde han hårdt og koldt ind i mikrofonen: “Dette er ikke underholdning!”."

Peter H. Olesen genkalder sig sin musikalske barndom på www.substans.info


"If you want to be entertained, go and see Hanson!"

Thom Yorke
