The WHY interview by Marco Dos Santos. Thanks to Mathias & Jonas from the Label.

1. Why Gomma ?

Because we needed to start an own label! We are are never satisfied with that what most other labels release and wanted to realize the things exactly how WE want. Musically, artistically, graphics wise and general politics! we have very tight ideas how modern dance music should soun and wanted to realize that. And as we have so many friends with stong musical ideas (WhoMadeWho, Headman, Rodion, Golden Bug etc) we decidet we have to start this own label.

2. Why Munk ?

Because MATHIAS MODICA the one half of GOMMA chief office wants to realize his version of pop disco rock ideas. The first album APERITIVO was released in 2004 including songs we did with Bobby Conn, DJ Chloe and James Murphy of DFA (who co wrote and sung the song “Kick out the chairs”)
MUNK now is a live band consisting of four persons.The new Album will be released in may 2008!

3. Why Thelonius ?

Because JONAS IMBERY – other half of the two label bosses has a very own mind too and wants to reallize his very own version of modern dance music. So he started this new own project wich will release a few 12inches in 2008.

4. Why Who Made Who ?

Because the three guys from Kopenhagen are the most talented songwriters and live band we have seen since PARLIAMENT , THE CONTORTIONS, CHIC and THE POLICE.

5. Why Rodion ?

Because Italian musicians are the best if it comes to melodies, harmonys and musical ideas. Since VERDI , PUCCINI, BERIO and MORRICONE this is a law! And if such an Italian starts to get into dance music, certain drugs and evolve some serious electronic production skills the result will be nothing else then PURE GENIUS! And Ed Cianfanelli aka RODION is a PURE GENIUS!

6. Why Munich ?

Beause Munich has the easyness of Italy. The style of France. The seriousness of Germany. And the popspirit of America.
And: Munich is tradionally Germanys most innovative musical city:

– Classically:
In the 18th and 19th Century Mozart and Wagner worked here. In the 20the century the classical super composer Karl Orff was based in Munich (and wrote the most known piece of modern classical music here: The CARMINA BURANA). Later Hans Werner Henze started his composer carrier here.

- Popmusic:
Anybody heard of Giorgio Moroder? Harold Faltermeyer? Donna Summer? Kurt Haunke? The guys invadet the US Charts from their Munich Studio. Later they ruled Hollywood: They did the music for Flashdance, American Gigolo, Beverly Hills Cop etc etc….

And in the 90ies: DJ Hell and Gigolo, Chicks on Speed, Funkstörung, The Notwist, Lali Puna…
It must be the Munich air! (Even Freddy Mercury got inspired and lived in Munich in the late 70ies. Recording ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST here and partying with people the Stones – who also recorded a few albums here…

7. Why no Techno ?

Actually we did a few techno things. But I think the “real” techno guys would never ever accept the term techno for that…hehe…and we are proud or not being part of any ONE DIMENSIONAL, PERMANENTLY REPEATING, BORING electronic movement….no techno..no minimal…no IDM…no nothing that never develops and never is brave….we hate repeating any musical formulas…we wanna discover new things! That’s why we are NOT TECHNO!

8. Why no Serato ?

Fuck Serato, Fuck Appleton live, Fuck I pods, Fuck swedish jeans

9. Why Asia Argento ?

Shes such a nice girl. With such a hugh cultural knowledge. Shes very inspirational and we had a lot of fun with her. So we decided to make these 3 songs with her wich will be on the new MUNK album. Check the first single LIFE FAST DIE OLD. Comes out in may. With remixes by JUAN MAC LEAN, BUSY P, Maral Salmassi and others.

10. Why Igor Stravinsky ?

Because he is the real Don of WHITE BOY FUNK! And his RITE OF SPIRNG is the greatest piece of music written in the 20th century.

11. Why James Murphy ?

Oh: when he called us up back in 2002 we didnt even know who that guy was. He just started DFA records and we thoughts it may be something to do with OIL or face liftings…. But then he came over to Munich djing and we realized that this guy not only knew more about Munich disco and Gomma then ourselves, but also could teach us a lot of stuff! We endet up in the studio. Doing this song KICK OUT THE CHAIRS wich was released on our first album.

12. Why Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space ?

Because Tim is the unbeaten king of dance music knowledge. An amazing DJ. An supernice guy.
When we met him he was djing with us at New Yorks APT club back in 2002. Back then he was an Amazing Hip Hop Turntablist and we engaged him to do some scratchings on the album we produced with THE RAMMELLZEE in 2002. By then we didn’t know that he had any Disco or techno skills….

13. Why The Rammellzee ?

He is the unbeaten hero of GOTHIC FUTURISM. And we are disciples of GOTHIC FUTURISM!

14. Why Leroy Hanghover ?

that was a drunken nick name we used for an album we produced back in 2002.

15. Why girls ?

Hehe: with men you cant make little kiddies. And we like little kiddies. (and the process of making them…)

16. Why alcool ?

because it makes u drunk…

17. Why drugs ?

because they make u munk…

18. Why Paris ?

Because its much better then London, New York and Tokio. Apart of Rome that’s our favorite capital in this world. Definitely! (and we have so nice friends there…)

19. Why this interview ?

because u asked for it

20. Why why ?

why not?

ps : Cette semaine on vous déconseille l’album de Cat Power “Jukebox”. Ce disque soporifique et surévalué plaira sûrement à ceux qui achètent leurs disques chez Starbucks mais franchement, quel intêret ?
