Drive: What are the plans on the next album?
Zack: We are moving to it. We wanted to include
in ten songs, but still only the half is ready. We
found a new bassist, Vanya Vetrogonov, and so we need
to play with him our set-list, as well as prepare
Drive: What question would you like to hear
Zack & Vladimir: Ow ...! Question is interesting!
Vladimir: This is a good question: why are
you all doing this, why?
Drive: Good question! And why?
Vladimir: Because this is the fate! (everyone
laughs). Probably, we simply can't stop doing it.
And I sing because I can't stop singing.
Zack: Actually, there is a wide answer to
this question. It's clear, that everyone likes that,
though there is also much problems with it. And we
like everything in it! We like music, guitar sounds,
gigs, drinking after gigs, we like the fact that concerts
occur. We like to chat with people, to communicate
with each other, talk about music. We are not doing
it for money. Though, of course, people seek to obtain
the money by music, but this is not to work and just
get on music continuously. That that there would be
no other strainings!
Drive: Many musicians created songs under
the drugs. What is your attitude to it?
Vladimir: My position is based on the Buddhist
philosophy, supported by, among other things, by the
Orthodox religion: You should not bring our ego, your
conscience to something certain. Neither on music,
nor on the beloved woman, no on the drugs. Nothing
should make you a slave. This is most important.
You can probably experiment with drugs, but they
can make you become addicted and turn into a ghost,
this is unacceptable. Kinchev, somehow, how could
overcome it. But it is the power of the orthodox spirit.
The real mystical power of God. Any light drugs -
this is simply the transformation of consciousness.
The fact is that all this can be achieved without
drugs. When a person is afraid: "Scary. Do not
try it, and I will not try" - it is also wrong
position. To condemn people who have experimented
with this, this is too wrong.
I can say that vodka is much stronger transforming
consciousness than marijuana (everybody laughs). Generally
a person who takes drugs - this is the one who has
to climb through the window, when you can enter through
