REMYL interview - Erroded Morality
#2 - 1994 - (Australia)
- Tell us about Remyl...
Remyl is the first and only cyber-trash-tech-synth-punkscape project in the universe. Emerging from cyber-trash-tech-monochrome-synth-punkscape
towards the grayscale realm of our current operations. Based in Oslo, Norway
we are three persons, lots of computers, synthesizers, and other tech and
trash-tech devices working together and against each other, to provoke
- Do Remyl play live ? Describe Remyl live
Remyl has played live once! It was a chaotic charity-venue for Norwegian ex-prisoners organization, with 5 rock'n'roll bands, an
accoustic act and Remyl. For the first time we had to practice, and
an ultra-compact set, 16 minutes long, containing the 4 tracks
Know the Machine, Golden Triangle, Daue Blomster and Maskin Maskin from the Remyl CD, and also two new tracks (one of them, ("Addicts") is to be released on a Pan-Scandinavian electro-music CD documentary, by the Finnish CyberWare label, in a rerecorded version). Our friend from "Zest" was cam-cording the gig, but the tapes came out blank. Also, the whole
trash-tech elektro-lab pileup (Remylic studios on-stage) suffered a severe
crash-trauma right in the opening of the set, caused by the gas-leak machine. Our protective suits and gas-masks protected us from the world.
- What songs are on the CD ? When/where was it recorded?
Everything on the CD was done during 1993 at the Remyl elektro-lab, except "Post Human" which was made in earlier nomadic days.
The CD contains the following tracks:
"Know the Machine" - they are here to stay and they afflict your life
in many ways.
"XoX". "Golden Triangle" (v 5.00 (Living Lie version))
"BullMerge" - the ramblings of Remyl's soft and hardware.
"The Barrier" = "Remyl ultra-live at the elektro-lab"
"Post Human", the last fight - machinery against itself.
"Daue Blomster" is the remains of a long jam. Mostly about dead flowers
being stepped upon.
"Black Visitors", a dark-scape as the result of black-metal friends
visiting us when we were working. They provided atmosphere, as you
"Gets to know You is an erroneous mutation of the first track, low-speed
with omni-triggered vocal phrases.
"Hardware Dump" - the sound of/for tech wasted - not for its uselessness, but for being non-desireable.
"Maskin Maskin" a tribute and an insult to the human naive attitude towards
new technology. The words are in Norwegian, but you will understand them.
- What does Remyl mean?
"Remyl" is probably the second name of the person who discovered the
now extinct plant "Euphorbia Remyl".
dobbel for svær
- Would you say there is a "Scene" in Norway?
Are there many bands you like up there?
- There might be a scene in Norway, but we can not see it from where
we stand... Seriously - things happen but quite randomly. There are good
bands like Angst-Pop, Anstalt, Apoptygma Berzerk, Dunkelheit, Humid,
Red Harvest, Sadomaoistan, Zest, some of who will appear on "The Re-Incarnation of the Sun", "Sex, Drugs & EBM 2" and the electro-music CD documentary, mentioned earlier. There are surely many other good bands that we don't know of - wchich is a pity.
- Tell me about the CD with Dunkelheit you gus, Piledriver etc.:
Who's idea was that?
Dunkelheit had the excellent idea for "The Re-Incarnation of the Sun", and we were lucky to be invited to contribute. It will be a good document on
the Norwegian industrial, electro or whatever -scene. It is kind of a
joint-venture between the participating bands, and it will be released in
500 copies in february by "Dunkelheit productions". There will be two tracks by Remyl; "Golden Triangle (v 2.00)" and "Aahhhmm".
- Are any of the members of Remyl vegeterian?
Do any og you have tatoos? Are any of you married?
Not at all.
- You music sounds like a real mixture of styles, what things
The state of the world, the state of our heads, creative statements by
others. Good music, bad music. Total silence, utter noise. Technology.
- What did you have for last nights dinner?
One had a vegetarian experience. The other eating porridge. The third
- Is good takeaway food available in Norway?
What do you prefer - chinese or thai food?
Yes, all kinds. Favourites are Pakistan/Turkish stuff. But we are really waiting for the first "Bastesen whale-snack take-away" in our
- Do you listen to any death metal? What do you think of it?
- What is Norwegian TV like?
Norwegian TV is well produced shit. TV is not good. It rips you
of your life. One way communication. Prefab brain-stuffing.
- What are Remyl's plans for the future?
We hope to release a new CD in 1994 - but its a financial struggle, as always. Hopefully a live act will come together. Work is in progress.
- Thanks for your time! Anything to add?
No, thank you.
