Crejuvent Interview

Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)

 

PD. What type of artist are you?

C. I’m the type of artist that decorates the world through the clever manipulation of sonic waves. I tend to do this by creating pressure in the air through different electronic mediums, and the waves that arise  from it are perceived by humans as “sound”. I use these “sounds” to invoke various feelings on the listeners, usually disgust and confusion as those seem to be the ones I can relate to the most.

 

PD. Tell us the brief history of yourself.

C. I was born at some point, moved around and barely grew up to be the person I am today. The experiences I have experienced throughout that time period have caused me to be present in this particular moment and to be doing stupid shit like I’m doing with Crejuvent.

Is that brief enough?

 

PD. Who are your musical and non-musical influences?

C. My musical influences tend to vary quite a bit, but for Crejuvent it would be bands such as Strapping Young Lad, Cynic, Beyond Creation, just technical death metal and progressive metal in general. I enjoy the far ends of the spectrum when it comes to music, and so have found myself being inspired by many grandiose sort of musicians more so than anything.

Non musically, my influences include sex and food. In fact, this is all just a poor attempt and getting perpetually laid whilst eating an endless pizza.

 

PD. What are your dreams and goals?

C. I suffer from a lot of night terrors, so most of my dreams involve people (usually close friends and family) trying to kill me or, as it has happened several times in the past, me disguising myself as a woman to prevent from getting murdered, stuff like that really.

My goal, as mentioned above, is to get perpetually laid and eat pizza. But I’ll be content with a blowjob and a sandwich.

 

PD. Who writes your songs, what are they about?

C. The universe writes the songs, I am but a mere vessel for it to actualize itself through.
No, I joke. That would be a very poetic note and the removal of all personal accountability that arises with writing music is something I find VERY appealing, but unfortunately that’s not quite how it works. I write all the songs, they’re usually about self identity, existentialism, depression, shit like that. You know, the kind of topics that really tend to liven a party up.

 

PD. How do you promote your band and shows?

C.  don’t, particularly. Or if I do, it’s done through things like this!

 

PD. What do you think about downloading music online?

C. I’m assuming you mean illegally? It’s not 2008 anymore, so who cares. With things like Spotify and other streaming platforms, it seems like it’s more effort than it’s worth nowadays to download music when you could just stream it.

 

PD. What song do you wish you’d written and why?

C. Whatever the best selling song is for that sweet sweet dollar. From an “artist’s” perspective, it doesn’t matter who wrote the song as long as it’s out there. I can’t imagine why anybody would wish they had written a specific song if not for the money…

 

PD. What are some of your pet peeves?

C. People who slow down whilst walking in front of me, or otherwise fully stopping dead in their tracks. I tend to wear steel capped boots and every time that happens I become so tempted to kick the fucker in front of me with the fury and rage of a hurricane. Fuck those people. In fact, fuck everybody now that I think about it.

 

PD. What is your proudest moment in music?

C. I was doing a gig with another band once in Birmingham and when we get off stage, the owner (who was this old ass decrepit looking lady) comes up to us and goes “That was great! I was upstairs touching myself the entire time you guys were on stage!”. And let me tell you, it doesn’t really get any better than that.

 

PD. So what are you working on at the moment?

C. I got a single and a B-side I’m working on, the single is going to be a cover of a famous opera piece. I think when it’s finished it’s going to sound amazing and knowing it will be overlooked within this realm of existence is a particular type of disappointment that I’m really looking forward to.

 

PD. Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.

C. Because shows are fun. Because the bigger audience I have at any given moment the more ridiculous this world seems. Because of the Simpsons samples. Because of love.
