‘Click Interview’ with Henric De La Cour: ‘Death Is No Longer My Close Confidant’

Five years after the last album, Swedish electro-veteran Henric De La Cour, unleashed the third full length of his sonic brainchild. “Gimme Daggers” has been again released on Progress Productions and it is without a shadow of doubt the most intimate and accomplished work to date. The album is a passionate electro/indie-pop driven opus inspired by the long suffering from the artist. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: The new album “Gimme Daggers” seems to get only very positive feedback. Is this your most accomplished- and favorite work to date and what do flattering critics and the enthusiasm of the fans mean for an artist? Henric: This album was kind of difficult to do after “Mandrills” which I thought was a very strong album, up there with “Hollywood And Wolfman” by Strip Music, so it took years for me to write something that I didn´t thought was absolute rubbish, but it came out great in the end. The critics mean quite a bit I would say. It is always nice when people like something that you have worked on for five years, you know. Q: “Gimme Daggers” sounds as your most accomplished and still intimate release. What did you try […]

Threatin: a band no-one ever heard of and which managed to book a tour (which no-one attended)

Los Angeles act Threatin has taken the art of posing to a next level. The one-man project, ‘the bizarre lovechild of Jon Bon Jovi and Tommy Wiseau himself’ as a YouTuber calls him, is being accused of faking its fanbase in order to score a European tour. A tour which no one attended in the end, except for a few coïncidental attendees. To get the band the necessary credibility fake show footage was used to make it look like they were playing in front of large crowds, YouTube views, comments and followers were bought, and there were also quite a lot of Facebook likes and commenters bought to fake the band’s popularity. And he also bought quite a lot of fake Spotify followers as his track counts don’t add up compared to the number of followers. But all that crumbled to bits when the Threatin tour kicked off on November 1. Although the band’s agent had claimed they had sold 291 tickets in advance, only three people showed up at the Underworld in London. The same thing happened at The Exchange in Bristol: 180 tickets ‘sold’ but again only few people showed up—all of which were from the opening band’s […]
