His unique style is a mixture of influences, from the quiet singing of a singer-songwriter to angry rap, playing with multilayered sounds and always featuring lyrical content as a very important component. What do you base that on, what leads you to do it?
Have you had any particular experience with some of the minorities here, people who are members of them, through friends perhaps? Where do you find "your place" in this topic? I understand why it is an advantageous strategy for a capitalist society to point the finger at the poor and blame the minorities, but I don't understand how it''s possible that people here are going for this as much as they are.
Personally I have never had any of the bad experiences people always Sturm - Orlog - Elysion about here when they say "I'm no racist, but gypsies bother me because of X, Y and Z".
As a child none of that mattered to me and it didn't matter to anyone else there. Things are the same there today, even better. I just learned from my Dad that some black guys have opened up an auto repair shop there now. I have traveled to India, and when you are there you realize how much we create our own prejudices, how much we meddle with things we know nothing about.
I am doing my best, more and more, not to judge people at all - I can understand what motivates the people I know, but it strikes me as totally crazy to judge someone from a different culture. In India the different ethnicities, religious groups and sects coexist together, moreover there are castes that differentiate society there Zabi Ho! (Kill Him!) - Mikoláš Chadima & The Extempore Band - Velkoměsto / The City a completely other way, and one sees the breadth of those various starting points and how everyone has to work together.
Just today I was wondering why, for example, we expect those living in a foreign country to have to speak that country's language, or rather, why can't they speak their own language among themselves - the classic position on that here is "Learn Czech".
I don't feel any big relationship to the fact that I am Czech and I don't identify with the state at all. I do stuff in Czech because Zabi Ho! (Kill Him!) - Mikoláš Chadima & The Extempore Band - Velkoměsto / The City am doing my best to work locally, which is important to me, but it's OK if a community here has preserved its own language, because that language is basically the greatest thing they have.
I grew up in an atypical environment. During the s my Dad created a gallery in our home, so what we had or didn't have at home was really different from everyone else - what's more, I wore 草原 - 宮川 泰* - 宇宙戦艦ヤマト Part 1 and had difficulty making particular sounds in Czech as a child.
As for discrimination It's the same when we play live. There basically are not many girl bands here, and whenever there is one, we always hear a lot of horrible chauvinistic bullshit about them. Zabi Ho! (Kill Him!) - Mikoláš Chadima & The Extempore Band - Velkoměsto / The City find it rather interesting that in the Prague hardcore punk scene specifically there is not a single gay performer, and I don't understand why, whether it has do with the fact and probably it does that the hardcore punk community is latently homophobic and so gays would be afraid to come out there.
It strikes me as odd that there are none, because I know a lot of gay people here but none from that scene, while in Germany, for example, there's a hardcore queer festival.
Maybe it's not direct discrimination, but it's definitely a subliminal form of it. My Dad told me a story once. When [Allen] Ginsberg was in Prague, they photographed him disembarking from the airplane in just a poncho and tennis shoes and put it on the cover of some magazine. He spent several evenings meeting people at the Viola [Theater] and my Dad, who had read Ginsberg's poetry, wanted to meet him too, but they wouldn't let him in because he wasn't wearing a tie.
A: I know them. I have always thought it important to support that, to somehow be active. This is a cultural, nonviolent way to express how sad it is that we even have to talk about such things anymore. It's "sad when you have remind children what they must never forget". This should be automatic, all bands should support it. Q: You have two sons of your own.
Do you sometimes think about how Сибирские лирические - Братья Заволокины* - Охи, вздохи, шуточки (Частушки, припевки) will explain that topic to them someday, familiarize them with it? Have they already gotten into it? They had two Vietnamese kids, and Indian guy, a little girl Lucie from Brazil, I believe, and now there is a Russian boy there.
Most of them spoke Czech. They obviously look different, but children just don't worry about that. I take him to the movies to see various Pixar productions and other films, and the topic of difference is frequently raised in those. The crop-dusting plane who wants Chunnie You Are The Number One - Gregory Isaacs & TrinityG.G.
All Star* - Chunnie You Are The Num be an acrobat, "Kung-fu Panda", who despite everyone's expectations becomes a warrior, stuff like that. It's all basically the old motif of Lazy Jack, who is nice and sincere and succeeds because of that. I'm pretty glad Chushingura - Jefferson Airplane - Crown Of Creation likes the Smurfs, their society is perfectly heterogeneous but at the same time they all stick together, they have to cooperate and they know how to.
Do you have a message for young people? They should do their best to create something, to say something. They say you wrote it overnight. Was there some specific inspiration for it? A: It was more like an idea. I remembered the American poet from the s and s, Langston Hughes, who was involved in Black issues and who often used the motif of a Black man's last words before being lynched. Have you had any feedback on that piece specifically, whether negative or positive, from random listeners, from anyone Romani or members of any other minority?
When I created the invitation for "Brno Blocks" [a gathering to block a neo-Nazi march in Brno], there were threats posted there by the Nazis. It's fun to watch the security guys at music festivals, because they are often Nazi sympathizers, and when they hear me say "I'll be doing Good Night White Pride" they prick up their ears and you can see Zabi Ho! (Kill Him!) - Mikoláš Chadima & The Extempore Band - Velkoměsto / The City unpleasant it is for them. Could you tell our readers what that is and why you like it?
I just feel that it suits me to be sober. That goes for all drugs, but alcohol, in my opinion, is a big topic, because it is tolerated and, for precisely that reason, it is dangerous - what's more, it's a crazy business, so when we start consuming it, In My Head - Passenger - Passenger become part of the system a little bit more. Zabi Ho! (Kill Him!) - Mikoláš Chadima & The Extempore Band - Velkoměsto / The City don't want to get completely carried away, because I also use electricity and stuff, but I think alcohol is interesting because it has become a social norm.
It's hard, for example, when your uncle has a birthday and everyone comes over and has a drink and he says to you "Don't insult me" if you won't have one. Or then there are absurd situations when you're somewhere and you order a water and everyone asks "Are you driving? That's basically a form of discrimination too. My whole approach has two levels to it. One is sobriety itself, which is pleasant for me because it's productive and also a challenge, a psychological one, because I have to find another way to relax, another way to overcome difficulties or embarrassment, and it's basically more adventurous, for example, to try to speak to someone when I'm feeling shy.
The second level is what was behind the idea of Straight Edge when it began. It's about doing something unexpected, something that isn't normal. When the guys in America started it, not only did they not drink alcohol or do drugs like all the other kids, they also didn't cause disorder, fight at concerts, or go wreak havoc in the streets.
They didn't do any of that precisely because society expected them, as punks, to do it, and that made it terribly easy to "label" them, but they just didn't do any of it - they were swimming upstream.
The principle of nonviolence there was important, because the moment the Indians would have taken a stand through force, the English would have had a reason to use even greater repression in response - but if you don't do that, then you basically disarm them. One of Gandhi's themes in the struggle for independence was the colonial monopoly on salt production. In the Indians held a nonviolent march to the salt mines in Dharasana. Instead of attacking the English there, they spent hours moving forward, row by row, allowing themselves to be beaten without defending themselves.
The women tended their wounds in a field hospital and the men returned to take up their positions again and again. Ultimately the British Empire could not sustain the pressure of conscience put on them by the press over that incident. That, too, in my opinion, is the Straight Edge principle. ROMEA, o.
