BACK WITH A VENGE ANCE After a 5 year gap the love child of Marilyn Manson and Siouxsie Sioux the Antichrist himself Nessah Vendetta is back with a brand new album T he new album, entitles ‘Feed Me Paradise’, is said to be as experimental as the last one. The 80’s Goth rock influenced Rock Star will be touring this year on a roller-coaster ride throughout Europe with the German Industrial Gods that are Rammstein. We caught up with Mr V and asked for his thoughts on his return to music: What made you return to making music? Well, I never really left...Yeah, I stopped making new songs and doing world tours and all. But once you become a rock star, you stay a rock star till you drop. Okay, so what made you want to release the new album? always wanted to, just I was going through a lot of s*** at the time. My best friend died of a heroin overdose which made me feel pretty guilty as I could have helped stop her... I wasn’t getting any better, just mouning and sitting up in my London apartment wallowing in self pity, so I decided to get a hold of myself and not let her die in vein. So I got out my note pad and began writing. At least now I had a personal story I could actually write about. I’m sorry to hear that. Where did the title for ‘Feed Me Paradise’ come from?
Oh a lighter note, haha!...I had just finished listening to my idol, Alice Cooper, when I began writing. And I had ‘Feed My Frankenstein’ going round in circles in my head still. As I wanted to write about my friends drug incident, I thought the idea of using the idea of food consumption a good metaphor for drug consumption. I’ve always been a fan of Alice in Wonderland, and the drug connotations that go along side it. I wanted to t o y with t h e idea of Ali c e taking drugs and going on this drug trip into her own ‘Wonderland’. So, I put two and two together and came up with the title ‘Feed Me Paradise’. The song it’s self is about a little girl’s adventures in a world she at first views as paradise, but ends up crashing down on her.
Richie, Slipknot to Cyndi Lauper. With ‘Unleaded’, which is about war in the Middle East, we looked to ‘Killing an Arab’ by The Cure, and I loved the fusion of Arabianmusic, and punk.So me and my guitarist, Nick, we blended Arabian style music with a dark, bassy Gothic-Rock and made something quite wonderful. We also played with a blend of Jazz and punk, for ‘The Darkened Trail’. We’ve got quite a funky style for ‘Obey!’. And for ‘The Meaning of Life’ we’re going for a Psychobilly style. The tune is pretty much a dark punk cover of ‘Jailhouse Rock’, with crude lyrics about Sex, Drugs and Alcohol over the top of it. For ‘The Meanign of Life’, we’re going for a Psychobilly style. The tune is pretty m u c h a dark p u n k cover of ‘Jailhouse Rock’, with crude lyrics about Sex, Drugs and Alcohol over the top of it. Hopefully that’ll be the one that our fans will be singing along to the most, it’s certainly the most enjoyable one for me to sing. I like to sing it in an Elvis style.
“I LISTEN TO ANYONE FROM BLACK SABBATH TO LIONEL RICHIE, SLIPKNOT TO CYNDI LAUPER.”
What new sounds have you been
You always put on a proper stage
playing with for the new album? Gawd, what haven’t we been playing around with?... I cant stick to one genre, I love everything. I listen to anyone from Black Sabbath to Lionel
planned for this year? Now, that’s a secret! But I wanna have actors dressed up, maybe as Zombies and s***. That should be
production. What do you have
cool. Oh, and I’m touring with Rammstein, so expect fire...lots and lots of Fire... Are you worried about touring with Rammstein? No, more like DEAD EXCITED!! But Till (LindermannLead singer of Rammstein) is a trained Pyrotechnician, so I’ll try not go p*** him off too much, I would rather keep my eyebrows, thank you very much! But no, I’m not worried. I’m more surprised that I’m touring with one of, if not the greatest, live bands ever. I used to be a greasy haired working class London boy who’d listen to these guys on a cheap MP3 player powered by dying batteries, now I’m going round the whole of Europe with them! Where did the name ‘Nessah Vendetta’ come from? Aha…funny story this. I never thought my real name was ‘rock star’ enough. I was talking to a friend of mine called Vanessa for suggestions on a band name, and as a joke she told me to call it ‘Nessa is Awesome’. As I’m a fan of Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper, I like the idea of using a woman’s name for a rock star, so I used ‘Nessa’, but with an ‘H’ on the end. ‘Nessah’ means pure or holy.
