CxOxSx – 21.01.16
1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days?
Hi mates ! 2 months ago we’ve splitted on a 12” with C.O.C. a record titled “Eat my tail!”. Fast grind played by 2 bands of friends. Now we’re looking for gigs around Italy and Europe. We want to spread our songs everywhere !!!
2.How would you describe the musical sound of the current music and also how does it differ from the stuff you have release in the past?
We always have played fast-core … ehm … Ultra-Fast-Core. We love play fast, we love grindcore and hardcore, then we always mix them and we make the songs you can listen to in our 12” or in our past Cds.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band has explores over the years?
We talk about our lives, about our everyday experiences. But we don’t want to be the classical angry grind band, we’d like to be an “happy-grind-band” , ah, ah, ah ! We want to see the world like our album covers: we want to report bad things (speculation on humanity, pollution, misery, unnecessary wars, ecc.), but with a touch of irony and a bit of “cartoon-view-of-life” !
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'CxOxSx'?
Oh … the meaning … I think it got lost in the memory of time. Everybody can choose the meaning of C, of O and S ... but the triple X remains the same .
5.The band has been together for 20 years, what is it that motivates you to still keep going after 2 decades?
Because first of all we’re friends and we still want to have fun together. Simple and honest. This is our only commandment.
6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We played many gigs over Italy and some in many european countries. In Italy and in every foreign state we met beautiful maniacs and we loved it. Obscene Extreme in Trutnov on 2005 was a great stage, for sure.
7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
We’re looking for dates or places to make a gig … a very fast gig! have you heard someone who wants to organize one?
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of thrashcore and grind?
Luckly our last 2 albums has been sold in many countries all over the worlds. But we sell few copies. We’re a small band and our true fans love us. But we are mostly followed by friends … who loves grind, powerviolence, fastcore, etc.
9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
We’d like to be like now forever and ever , and we work hard to do this. Ah, ah, ah ! We are sure about one thing: we want to be happy and we like fast core !
10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
We love grindcore , thrashcore, powerviolence and every song sounds violent and fast. We listen to Brutal Truth, Ratos de Porao, D.R.I., Municipal Waste, Vitamin X, Hellnation, Flesh Parade, Massgrav and many many many more.
11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Three of us are married and have family, and you know, the family sucks all of our spare time every day. But we love chill out, going out with friends and drink beer. Two of us have dogs, they are part of the family.
12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Sure ! Thanks for this interview and the interest in our new album … play fast, live fast and laugh every day !
