Disappearer Q&A

Your name:
Pedro Coelho Pereira.

Where are you from?
Lisbon, Portugal.

Name of band:
Disappearer.

Who else is in your band?
A social assassin also know as the Basement Dweller Choir.

How would you describe yourselves?
Sometimes calm, sometimes intense music.

Who are your main influences musically?
I always end up forgetting some important artists/bands so I avoid to use a list, but later in life 16 Horsepower (David Eugene Edwards), some post-rock bands (from - even early - Talk Talk to Mogwai and GY!BE...) and all slow heavy psychedelic rock/metal (70's/80's) come immediately to mind. They all have a musical power of immediate impact, they grab the listener and that will always influence the way I try to make songs (I hope).

What do you hope to achieve in music?
To make music that affects people the same way it affects me.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Finding people who genuinely, really like the music.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Some parts of the recording process, directly connected to life and others on how stupid we can somehow be, for no apparent reason.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Stuck in a Loop. There's despair but there's also hope, maybe an illusion (or not) that we create on the way we behave if things go bad, we repeat mistakes although we can always start over.

Where can we listen to it?http://disappearer.bandcamp.com



Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask?
How's life in Portugal after a financial bailout? Terrible.
