Interview von: Matthias Rauch mit Jarid del Deo, am: 28.07.2010 ]

In unserer Reihe Zehn-Fragen an…haben wir uns dieses Mal Jarid del Deo aka Unbunny vorgeknöpft. Dieser hat vor nicht allzu langer Zeit ein weiteres, hervorragendes Album namens „Moon Food“ auf unserem Lieblingslabel Affairs of the Heart veröffentlicht. Wir sprachen mit Jarid über Neil Young, das Geldverdienen und die Vorzüge prägnanter Antworten. Wohl bekomme es.


Musicscan: First of all, congratulations to the new album, Jarid. How did you go about writing and recording this album? Did you do anything different compared to your previous efforts?

Unbunny: Thank you. Yes, it was a different in a few ways. This was our first record were we used a laptop as our primary recording tool. In the past we had used a cassette four track.

Musicscan: What influence did Neil Young have on you as a songwriter?

Unbunny: Well, no more than any classic rock writers. I realize that there is an easy comparison to make there but really I'm never thinking "What would Neil do?"

Musicscan: What does an average day of yours look like when you are not on the road?

Unbunny: Probably the same as yours.

Musicscan: Do you have a day job? How do you make ends meet?

Unbunny: I need to look for a day job as soon as this tour is over.

Musicscan: Did you have certain musical or aesthetic goals for Unbunny when you started out?

Unbunny: Not really. I just wanted to be able to make songs with my friends. I just kind of make whatever comes easiest. I've never tried to make a certain kind of music.

Musicscan: What makes for the perfect song in your opinion? Have you ever achieved something like a perfect song in your opinion? How would you define a perfect song?

Unbunny: I don't think I'm capable of making a song that I would think is perfect. My idea of the perfect song is one that moves me by saying something in a way that I would never have thought of.

Musicscan: Is it necessary to create a certain distance between you and the music in order to get a better understanding of its inherent quality?

Unbunny: Yes.

Musicscan: Is there something like a thematic continuity on the album, something that connects the individual songs lyrically?

Unbunny: Not as much as on the last record but to a certain extent, yes. I mean, they are all directly or indirectly related to my experiences.

Musicscan: What are some other passions in your life besides music? What do you think you would be doing if the whole music thing wouldn’t work out?

Unbunny: I like making stuff. Hanging out with my friends. Old cars. I don't really know where the line between "working out" and "not working out" is in music. Which side of that line am I on?

Musicscan: What is the difference between art and entertainment in your opinion?

Unbunny: Well, obviously, they are not mutually exclusive. I can't really answer that because I think it really changes for me. It's a giant amorphous grey cloud.

Musicscan: Do you think the concept of the album as the primary format for pop music will last? Do you think a change of the medium will also entail different approaches towards the music and therefore also the songwriting process?

Unbunny: Probably. I don't think about that kind of thing, though.

Musicscan: Do you feel that pop music is received differently in Europe compared to the US? If yes, how so?

Unbunny: In the big scheme of things, no.

Musicscan: What can we expect from you in the near future? Any new releases, tours, collaborations planned?

Unbunny: I'm hoping to do some recording this summer. Hopefully return to Europe in the fall.
