Hors Controle – Vauriens interview
Redstar73 Blog: Please can you introduce your band. When was it started? What about your name?
Hors Controle: HORS CONTROLE is a french antifascist oi band. There are four members: Me (Régis) lead vocal and guitar, Thierry bass guitar , Johan drums and chorus and Philippe guitar.
The band started at the begining of the year 2000 with only two members Me (guitar and lead vocal) and Max for the bass guitar and we played with a drum machine. In 2004 Max left the band and was replaced by Thierry. Johan joined us in 2006 and Philippe in 2012.
We choose the name HORS CONTROLE (OUT OF CONTROL in English) because we want nobody to tell us what we have to do or to say, we are free!!
Redstar73 Blog: Whats up next for Hors Controle? Anything planned?
Hors Controle: Last year (2015) was our 15th birthday and for this occasion we produced a new album VAURIENS (7 songs) accompagnied with a dvd live. This album is available since November 28th 2015.
Redstar73 Blog: What do you think about the french Skinhead scene at the moment?
Hors Controle: At the moment there is a lot of apolitics skinheads. They don’t want to assert their antifascism! ok but I think we are not obliged to shout everywhere “WE ARE ANTIFAS” but it’s not a reason to go at the concerts organised by nazis or far right people and after say it’s only for the music; fuck that!!! But the antifa scene is still very active with some good bands like LES TROIS HUIT , KROSKA, 22 LONGS RIFFS? YA BASTA , LOS TRES PUNTOS and others.
Redstar73 Blog: How important is for you the DIY idea and politics?
Hors Controle: If you do the things yourself you are free. We don’t want to record an album for a fucking label who say “i don’t like this song can you change it? or i don’t like the picture in the cd you must to represent the label!! it’s not for us ! you know i buy our van with my money no outside help, i work for that. it’s the same thing for the politics we are free and antifascists nothing more.
