Before going on a small tour in France with Lovgun, Horsebastard took time to answer our questions, answers as stupid as their music is fast !

 

* Could you provide us your fav’ playlist at the moment ? What people should listen to while reading this interview ? (it’s forbidden to answer Horsebastard)

Watch/listen to these 3 vids in quick succession/simultaneously/on loop.. That’s where we’re at, all the time

* Can you please introduce your band : how did you start, what is/was the line-up, your discography, your past tours ?

The band was formed in Liverpool back in 2010 mainly to play fast and be idiots. With the original line up being:
Trip – Drums, Bob – Guitar, Steve – Bass and Johnboy – Vocals.. Reese joined on vocals in 2011 and I (Pete) joined on bass in 2012.

Our discography to date:
‘Equestrian Blastcore’ demo CDr
‘Giraffetermath’ MLP
‘split with Noisebazooka’ EP
‘split with Rageous Intent’ EP
‘split with Ape Unit’ EP
and our ‘split with Retortion Terror’ EP is out soon!

Past tours have included: Infanticide (twice), Oblivionized, Cancerous Womb, Endless Swarm, Ona Snop, Ape Unit (twice) etc

 

 

 

* What do you have against horses? Something linked with what’s behind the labra-door ?

Against? Never. We am, if and of the horses at all times. The Manure Wars are coming, you have been warned. Once you’ve passed Through The Labra-Door we can frankly say that things will become a little ‘contraplinthian in the tabernacle’.. But that’s hardly unusual for this time of last year, especially next Tuesday evening.

* We saw that a new release is coming with Retortion Terror from Japan, can you tell us some more about it ?

It’s been a long time coming and will hopefully make you feel like a distressed swan defending its nest.. Music to hiss loudly, flap your arms and lunge wildly at an intruder to.

* We know the UK scene is pretty prolific in awesome grind bands, so you surely have some side projects, right ?

Some of the other active bands we currently play in include: Chinsniffer (noise/grind/pv/sludge), Crepitation (death/slam/grind), Dad (punk/pv) and Corrupt Moral Altar (heavy/heavy)..

* Is there other bands around, in which you don’t play, that we should know about ?

Endless Swarm, Gay Panic Defence, Droves, Ona Snop, Lugubrious Children, Fidget, Coproach, Lifewrecker, Nothing Clean, Nazi Killer, Hack Job, Human Cull, Atomck, Meth Camp etc etc

* What is the most memorable gig/live moment for Horsebastard so far ?

Probably when we were squashed into a shipping container with loads of people in Slovenia and it was minus-13 outside with six foot snowdrifts. The power went off just before we set up and it was touch and go whether we’d end up playing until they got a generator going and then everyone went mental.

* You seem to have a film director in your crew (producing a lot of weird videoclips for you), is he in the band ? Already working on the next plot ? Will “the Horsebastard” strike again ?

Bob is the auteur in question.. Another chapter of the documentary could surface when we release our LP.. A recent local legend persists that the beast with the head of a horse and the increasingly squamous body of a man was regularly spotted in the light of a gibbous moon on the outskirts of, leading to speculation he was now trapped in Pimbo..
