One Question Interviews: David Bailey

David Bailey (CAGES/Gas Chamber) 

SPB: Who is your favorite band or artist from the 1980s?

Bailey: G.I.S.M. from Japan. They released two furious documents in the eighties, Detestation and Military Affairs Neurotic, both of which are heaving with violence. As a teenager I had picked up a bootleg cd of them based on the terrifying cover artwork, and after hearing Randy Uchida's GUITAR(!!) and Sakevi's VOICE(!!!!), was hooked. Here was all the instability, hatred, grossness, and internal disgust transformed into sound. However, and this is current through all of their work, an underlying sense of beauty and majesty can be found (this is especially evident if you witness any of the Beast Arts video editing). Add this to legendary live actions and you have a truly important grouping of individuals creating something of substance.
