Sex Dumpster Interview
Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD. What type of artist are you?
SD. Sex Dumpster is blackened crust/punk
PD. Tell us the brief history of yourself
SD. I’ve been playing in punk and black metal bands since I was roughly 13 years old. Last serious band I did was Thousand Year War with the release of “Tyrants and Men”. Now I just do this for my own enrichment and entertainment.
PD. Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
SD. I love underground black metal, punk, and crust punk. It’s the majority of what I listen to. Inquisition, Grand Belial’s Key, The Queers, GG Allin, Anal Cunt, Wolf Brigade, Unlord, to name a few. There is so much great shit out there. Non-Musical would be very negative things associated with living in this fucked up world. Alcoholism, depression, nature, winter, suicide, the meaningless of life.
PD. What are your dreams and goals?
SD. Stay alive, maybe one day die on the toilet taking a shit and masturbating at the same time high on coke. Visit every country in the world and have fun and fucked up experiences in all of them. Keep releasing albums in the meantime, and hopefully work with a label I like soon.
PD. Who writes your songs, what are they about?
SD. I write all of the songs and they are usually all different in themes. For example, Fist Fucking Mother Fucker is about fucking someone to death. Under the night is about ending life on your own terms and no one else’s terms out in the woods. I usually get something stuck in my head that I see or hear and start to translate that into guitar riffs. The rest of the songs usually build off that.
PD. What have you been up to most recently?
SD. I work alot. I’m a bartender at a busy bar, so work occupies a lot of my time, when I am working. I also take a lot of vacations. Anywhere from 3-6 months out of the year. But I have been working on a new full length album that should be ready by the end of this summer. I do a lot of traveling in my free time. I like to see shit I have not seen before and don’t believe in the future, because it doesn’t exist. I want to live life to the fullest and burn the fuck out, not fade away.
PD. How do you promote your band and shows?
SD. I don’t really. I hired Imperative PR to help me with this, and I am really happy with them. Before, it was through a label. In the very beginning I had to do it myself, which gets old pretty fast. We don’t play live, and I’m not very interested in live performances. Who knows, someday I might change my mind, but probably not. I just do this to get out some creative energy, and maybe give something back to people who will enjoy the music.
PD. What do you think about downloading music online? What’s your outlook on the record industry today?
SD. The record industry is shit. It died a long time ago. It looks like there is a little revival of vinyl. Would love to do a vinyl release. Basically, musicians need to accept most people are going to download/steal their music online. I have, and I don’t care anymore. The positive side is there is more exposure. The negative side, the mystery and magic is primarily non-existent.
PD. What song do you wish you’d written and why?
SD. Every song I wish I’d have written, I have.
PD. What are some of your pet peeves?
SD. People, I fucking hate most goddamn people. The things they say, the things they think are important, the things they do, the whole essence of who most people are makes me want to murder them. I think I’ve always been a cunt hair away from being a serial killer. Don’t get me wrong, I really do enjoy some people. But in my book, every stranger to me is a worthless cunt until proven otherwise.
PD. What is your proudest moment in music?
SD. I don’t know, I guess getting a label. I used to think that shit was important. Now I don’t really care anymore. I don’t really care about much. Just wake up, breathe, that’s good enough. If someone likes the music, that’s great. If people don’t, who the fuck cares. The main thing is that I keep writing, that keeps me halfway sane. I like to get the music out there, because other bands do the same, and I appreciate hearing what they have. So it’s sort of a karma thing I’m following.
PD. Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.
SD. I don’t see us ever performing live. And if I do play live, go there because you are a real human fucking being that loves the magic of underground music. Not some worthless trend following douche jumping on the next fucked off hipster bandwagon. Thanks for the interview and support!
