Bangladeshi Bulldozer Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?

Erm, we’re a 3 piece Hardcore Punk/Grindcore band from the Isle of Wight, England, though only two of us were on the Demolition demo. The two guys on guitar and bass, Blake and Olie, were previously in a short lived Hardcore punk called Rilke, and we all decided to try and get back into the punk scene and cause carnage.

2.Recently you have released an ep, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording?

Erm, shit. Na, what you hear on Demolition is just some stuff myself (Lewis) and Olie came up with on our first practice which was on the same day I posted up the demo onto bandcamp. We just wanted to go for all out punk carnage, though our sound will become more developed once we have a practice session with Blake our guitarist and songwriter.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

On the demolition demo, Olie just spurted out random shite, as we never penned anything down, but I know Blake has some decent lyrics in the making which will focus on controversial topics such as politics, religion and war, but they should sound awesome.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Bangladeshi Bulldozer'?

It’s random, it’s funny and it’s awesome. There wasn’t any inspiration behind it, just something that came off the top of my head.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Shows?! We haven’t actually played any gigs yet and have only practiced once. But will hopefully perform live in the future.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

Not as of yet, as we’re still in the songwriting phase, but once we develop our songs structure and become tighter in a band, we’ll probably end up playing the odd pub gig that comes up.

7.Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

Nothing as of yet, and probably not, as labels screw you over with what you can actually do. We’re just going for the DIY Punk method, as it’s easily the best way.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of punk and grindcore?

Pah! Worldwide? Only yourself and our mate, Richard Heaven of the Pornography for Cowards Zine have given our demo feedback and he said it was jokes, but he liked it.

9.Are any of the band members also involved with any other musical projects?

Only Blake is part of another project. He’s currently got his own project called Jeff Rucksack, which is a ska/dub/hip hop project which focus’ on the troubles in Palestine and other things. It’s really quite rad! He’s also recorded a few tracks with Rich, of Pornography for Cowards Zine, for Rucksack in it sounds sick! Check Jeff Rucksack out here -

10.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We don’t have any plans for a full length yet, we just wanna practice, get tighter musically and write more songs. And probably play a few gigs in the future before we think of recording. 

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

I’d say stuff like Propaghandi, Napalm Death, Anal Cunt, Grimple and a few others. Personally, I just listen to any old shit, regardless of the genre, if I like it, I’ll listen to it.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

Sleep, drinking, listening to music, performing music and going to gigs. Also more drinking.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Naa not really, just cheers for actually checking out and spending time on reviewing the garbage that is Demolition. Best of luck with your zine! Should really create is as a magazine type thing, would be sick. – Lewis.
