How to don't know these two uncompromising Ebmers "tifosi" who sweat the friendship, the beer and a rough electro stompers attitude...They are coming from the boots of Europe. They called themselves Blood Shot Eyes, put on you straps, 'cause theirs boots are made for stomping!
1. So as usual, can you introduce your band?
Whip: Synth/Pc/ Lyrics/ Chorus.
2. Your history, where do you meet yourself?
Whip: We met and for the first time in a club I worked as artistic director, I remember him behind 20 bottles of super tennent’s!
Since 2007 I was playing electronic music but in 2009 I proposed to him to be the voice of my tracks. I really like his voice,is strong, so, B.S.E. was born.
3. I know you listen to oi, punk, minimal synth wave, why have choose to start an electronic band?
U-MEN: I DO NOT LISTEN-ONLY THE PUNK OI! BUT MY VARY GENRES ARE ENOUGH TO LISTEN TO MUSIC WITH HYBRID Punk-OI! OLD STYLE TO SPEND THE GOOD AND THE MINIMAL SYNTHWAVE DARKWAVE POST-PUNK AND NEW WAVE 80's. What we play I would not call EXACTLY EBM BUT WE like to call electropunk-OI!. IN SHORT, WE LIKE TO MIX THE ELECTRONICS AND THE SPEED OF goliardia
WHIP: Everything was natural, I think we play ELECTROPUNK-OI!, simply because it is a lifestyle that has kidnapped our mind.
4. What inspire you to create music?
U-MEN: WHAT INSPIRES IN OUR MUSIC?
EASY....OUR MUSIC AND OUR LYRICS ARE INSPIRED BY OUR DAILY LIFE, FROM SOCIAL DISCOMFORT IN WHICH WE LIVE, THE ARROGANCE OF POLICE, THE FUCKING FILTH OF OUR SOCIETY, THAT WE HAVE IN ANGER AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT OF THIS SHIT DONE AND DISHONEST THIEVES, Beers & football, THE FIGHTS AND OF COURSE, THE PUSSY.!!
5. It appears, you choose autoproduction for yours 3 release, it 's a necessity for you to control all?
U-MEN: THIS IS A GOOD QUESTION: THE CHOICE OF AUTOPRODURCI was dictated ONLY AND THANKS arrogance, jealousy, greed AND FEEL THE SCENE OF A GOD ebm, the only Italian label that covers this kind of music. B.S.E. are born free without masters and without chains, we LOOSE DOGS AND WE WILL ALWAYS. AGAINST ALL AND ALL. Ours is a lifestyle, the money there are coveted. There never wield the god of money and fame, these are things that do not belong to us.
FUCK THE POSER!SMASH THE POSER!
WHIP: Our mentality is totally free from everything, we respect very much the labels that support EBM band, Except for one,a new Italian label,, they tried to put us in difficulty. I will not be prolonged too much, but they are a fuckin false people, cowards, opportunistic. In their organization there are people who smile at concerts, but when they are alone in their homes, back to that fucking PC,change completely…I think you can image it… an E.B.M. band in contract with that label asked for a BSE remix of them track, but that band could not put our remix in their cd, 'cause the boss of the label say to them....
“Oh, no, you can not put a BSE remix in your cd…”
I could list to you dozens of bullshit…many important… but the interview would become boring.. so…
6. For those who don't know Italian language, what's the message you want to give throught your music?
U-MEN: As I said earlier in the fourth question, our message is clear, we hate the rotten and corrupt society that surrounds us, PREJUDICE OF THE PEOPLE, the police, our state, the falsity of the people, and all the shit that surrounds us also. FULL OF HATE !!!
7. Your cd is just out, do you have some feeds about it?
YOU CAN BUY OUR CD DIRECTLY BY SENDING AN EMAIL TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
YES WE HAVE A LOT OF REQUESTS FROM ABROAD (BRAZIL,MEXICO,CHILE,GERMANY,SPAIN,FRANCE,SLOVENIA,POLAND AND OUR DEAR AND hated ITALY).
8. Some projects, gigs to come for 2012?
U-MEN: FOR 2012 WE HAVE SOME OF REQUESTS FOR CONCERTS ABROAD (BRAZIL & GERMANY) FOR THE MOMENT.
BUT WE LOOK FORWARD FROM EAST EUROPE an invitation. We're fascinated IDEA OF PLAYING IN PLACES LIKE POLAND,SLOVENIA,HUNGARY,RUSSIA ETC ...
IN THESE DAYS WE will close our beloved IN STUDIO WITH BEER, PIECES OF PAPER TO WRITE LYRICS and begin to COMPOSE NEW SONGS FOR OUR NEW CD. WE ALSO got an CRAZY IDEA TO DO A JOB DONE ONLY FOR COVER, PUNK & NEW WAVE GROUP-OI! YEAR 80, Time will tell!
WHIP: We are more famous of Depeche Mode. Ahahaha
9. what do you think about our compilation?
WHIP: You guys,are very great,I think this compilation is a really good idea… E.B.M. music scene need more propaganda, and this a good way.
10. This compilation is made to put a bridge between Europe & South / Central America scene, what's your feeling about it?
U-MEN: I think this is a great idea. And THAT WHAT THIS SERVES TO STRENGTHEN RELATIONS AND FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN Europe and Latin America. !!! U N I T E D !!!
11. One thing or word you like?
U-MEN: ONE THING THAT I LOVE? MY DAUGHTER IS THE THING THAT MOST OF THE WORLD!

WHIP: Birra – Beer - cerveza :)))
12. one you dislike?
U-MEN: ONE THING THAT I HATE? AHAHAHAH ask that MY BROTHER (AGO WHIP), I HATE PEOPLE FALSE, PREJUDICE, THE ITALIAN LABEL And ALL the fucking RACIST!!
WHIP: Globalization ! ! !
13. The best beer for you? and the best place to drink it with some friends?
U-MEN: WHY IS THERE A BEER THAT IS NOT GOOD? THE BEST PLACE TO DRINK A BEER WITH FRIENDS? THE PUB,THE CONCERT FOR THE ROAD, EVERY PLACE WITH ALL THE GOOD DRINK AND revelry.
WHIP: Usually I drink SuperTennent’s but.. i remember a night in a club,a friends gigs, in a very nice pub here in south of Italy, boss of the club say me “if you like strong beer, taste this, it’s the first strong beer ever…” I drank 3 liters,and i now i don’t remember the name… fuck. Ahaha. And, I love Pub, yes, Absolutly, I think is the best place.
