Lucretia's Daggers formed in 2001 in Boston,Massachusetts, United States, has a unique and irreverent style. Check out the exclusive interview with the Local Stage.
Local Stage: First of all, introduce yourself to our audience. Who are Lucretia's Daggers?
Lucretia's Daggers: Thank you, Paulo. Currently we are a band of three people, with Donni Darko on bass, Artemis Juno on evil guitar and syncopated laptop, and I, Lucretia X. Machina, with introspective lyrics and vocals.
Local Stage: How long have you played together?
Lucretia's Daggers: Lucretia's Daggers has existed in various incarnations since 2001. This particular formation has been around since the summer of 2016.
Stage Location: The name that is related to Lucretia My Reflection by Sisters of Mercy?
Yes. It's a tribute to both the Lucretia's Daggers:Systers Of Mercy in particular and the gothic / industrial music in general, as we are a mix of gothic, industrial genre and other musical genres.
Stage Location: About the song "Public Transit". Could you explain something about the lyrics? Is it about some common situation you experience in the city?
As with "Retail", however, you will notice that all our "complaints" are with the I tried to address every "evil" when using the Massachusetts Bay Transport Authority (MBTA) Public Transportation System (in the Boston area) ... from the point of view of a disgruntled passenger. Like "Retail", PT is a dramatic and comical commentary on (the lack of) human decency in everyday real life space. "Public Transit" is the second in the "Snarkalypse" trifecta, after "The Horrors of Retail". Oh, my God, yes. Lucretia's Daggers:passengers / customers, not the business itself! (As a non-driver of long life, I love the MBTA, I forgive you for your failures but not the rudeness of your users!)
Local Stage: In Brazil, musicians believe that things in the United States are much easier than here. Could you talk about the difficulties you face in becoming known to the public?
The bar takes theirs first, the club wants a "guarantee" of Maybe musicians can make money online, but many in the US are "paying to play." Kudos (something like congratulations) to him! He said he made a lot of money online and playing in Brazil. We had a test of a Brazilian keyboardist for the band. Making music and playing here is probably NOT 'easier', especially MONEY! Do not leave your country to come to the US! OMG. Lucretia's Daggers:number of attendees ... promotion is a lot of work and a distraction to make music and just want to play outside ... usually for free or for a few drinks. You're lucky if you earn gas money for your car! MAKE IT BY LOVE THE MUSIC, OR LEAVE OUT! LD is and always will be a hobby (very expensive) like most bands in the US. We do it for YOU!
Local Stage: Do you plan a foreign tour?
Lucretia's Daggers: I wish. Very expensive and the group needs to increase (we need an electro-drummer and keyboardist!) (Pass it on!)
However, all members of LD have ties to Florida, and our guitarist, Artemis, recommends a club that contacted us months ago. So ... maybe in Florida? I hope someday New York. In the near future ... Boston / Cambridge / Somerville, MA USA as usual. Always online, and with more videos planned in the future!
What kind of material Stage Location:does Lucretia's Daggers already have?
Lucretia's Daggers: LD is "dark electro-rock lyrical ... for the apocalypse!"
We have an album, Sad Flower Songs, from an earlier line-up in 2006. It has a low-key synthy sound for what the band has since become, but still fun. We have a few singles, including one in a compilation from Boston, MA called Sky So Gray as of 2009. You can see all our releases at https://lucretiasdaggers.com/releases
