Undercover Slut

“Amerikkka Macht Frei” , the new UNDERCOVER SLUT album has been out for a few weeks now. I guess this title could get a brand new meaning in these election times…. The darkest industrial glam punk band from Paris, France recorded this new album in Los Angeles and are now ready to conquer the world. ‘O’ (lead vocals) tells us about it, year 2008 and the future for UCS…

You have a new CD out, can you tell us a bit about it and give us details about the recording? Any anecdotes?

‘O’ : Allelujah! “Amerikkka Macht Frei” is finally out after a million issues, delays & fuckin’ drama! started pre-prod. w/Stevo Bruno, who I chosed for his work on Brides Of Destruction 1st album. Stevo was a cool cat, but way too fucked-up on blow & smack to properly finish “AMF”. Fake started recording his drum parts on Tommy Lee’s drumkit at the Chop Shop, we were supposed to come back to Next Level for the rest of the recording, then fuckin’ Stevo got evicted from LAPD for shooting guns inside Next Level, then everything went downhill. after a while we had to stop working w/Stevo & finally ended up recorded the entire “AMF” album @ the Chop Shop with Chris Baseford (Rob Zombie, Tommy Lee, Genitorturers). As far as anecdotes, Divine played a couple songs on Mick Mars’ Les Paul. Matthew Roberts, Charles Manson’s son came in for a duet with me on “Jesus Kills! Coroner Saves!” after being introduced to me by Marilyn Manson’s ex-girlfriend. It was great recording there at that huge studio. Amazing place, I have great memories of being there!

There’s been some line-up changes in the band, can you tell us about the current members?

‘O’ : The least we could say is there’s been tonsa line-up changes. So much, I don’t even remember who the fuck played in UNDERCOVER SLUT. So far, Divine is the best songwriter ever. Drag is a fuckin’ driving force. Kraze plays drums the way Swiss make Rolex watches! The vibe is all good and that artistic partnership is fuckin’ killer!

Can you talk about the evolution of the band? Some new elements have been added to UCS’ music on this new album.

‘O’ : I don’t see the point of releasing the same album twice. That would be fuckin’ pathetic. Musicwise, I enjoy a million bands, all influences are so diverse, “Amerikkka Macht Frei” is that monster we created on those Hollywood hills.

You have a few guests on the album, how did you get the idea of inviting them?

‘O’ : Teddy from Rebel Rebel is my man, no question about it! I know Eric from Murderdolls/Wednesday 13 fame since early stages of Synical. Matthew Roberts (Charles Manson’s son) was introduced to us by Marilyn Manson’s ex. Nikki Sixx was supposed to make it, but his busy “Heroin Diaries” schedule wouldn’t allow him to guest on “AMF”.

How did you get to meet Dean Karr who took the photos for your album and filmed your video for « Shadow Song »?

‘O’ : Dean Karr belongs to that Chop Shop clique where we conceived our monster known as “Amerikkka Macht Frei”. When it came to the point of finding a video director/photographer, it was a logical step to work with that tinseltown fuckin’ genius!

Your CURE cover « Killing An Arab » finally doesn’t appear on the album. Any chance to see it released on another support?

‘O’ : Patience, “Killing An Arab” should be out on a vinyl format later on in 2K9.

You have this shock rock image and attitude but you also speak out for animals for instance. What kind of reactions do you get from people?

‘O’ : Love and hate. Nothing in between really.
