Interview:2018-Non Pop

With the DEATH IN JUNE work “ESSENCE!” Douglas P. has unquestionably created a great album that combines the strong, traditional DEATH IN JUNE elements with some innovations and alternative twists. The following article is a summary of a conversation with Douglas that I had with him during December 2018. The pictures are used by kind permission of Douglas P.. After Douglas had sent me the new DEATH IN JUNE album, I of course had some questions relating “ESSENCE!”. At first he told me, that he actually no longer do interviews,…

Interview:2006-The Eye

Full transcription from the Brainwashed video interview “The Eye” I’m open to people’s interpretations, I mean it’s like for instance the name Death in June, they’ve been so many different interpretations, but I still think the most interesting, one which is one of the more recent in the past few years was that I was derived from the assassination of the Archduke Prince Ferdinand Sarajevo in June 1914, I’d never thought about that but of course it does have a relevance here. We live in a world shaped by what…

Interview:2006-Behind The Mask

Transcription from the DVD : Once you’ve truly looked into the abyss. You get a fit of the giggles. Our family was a very unhappy dysfunctional family. I have to state that, you know, life didn’t change just where my father died. It changed as soon as I was born, that was, it was always going to be odd. They, my mum and dad pretty much hated each other and let the family know about it in an uncertain manner. So that kind of thing is, is always in progress….

Interview:1992-Unknown audio recording

With your new LP and CD and touring during the last three years, many different countries and you travel a lot. Are you searching something on your, maybe, vacations or inspiration… Wherever I go I always work. And, I’ve been traveling abroad since I was 17, quite extensively throughout the world. And so this is like, I’d be doing it anyway, but wherever I go, I’m always utilizing either my photography or, you know, I’m writing in whatever place I find myself. But after the recording of the last LP,…

Interview:1991-Propaganda Magazine

It’s not easy being a fan of Death In June; they have no videos out, they rarely if ever tour, their records are extremey difficult to find, and the band rarely appears on the covers of them. Death In June is more a state of mind than a band. It is as much a cultural experience as it is a muslcal one. Death In June is a world view conceived by one man – Douglas Pearce. And because this view and the music it’s set to is so hard to…

Interview:1997-Bats And Red Velvet Magazine #22

Death In June have been in existence since the early 80’s and are one of a family of groups including Current 93, Sorrow, Nurse With Wound and several others, ail of whom are based around the World Serpent record label. But you probably know that anyway. Over the years, a number of opinions have built up around the band, mainly by people who have rarely bothered to dig beyond the level of superficiality. Death In June’s sound is hard to define, but can be described as finely crafted music built…

Interview:2002-Dagaz

Luis Oliveira: Will David Tibet ever work with Death In June again?And Rose?Douglas P.: People have a fetish for looking back at the past. I’m not too interested in that. Today should be great and tomorrow even better. It’s an easy and comfortable trap into which to fall. I’ve done it myself! Our heyday of collaborating together was in the mid to late 1980’s. The decade of the 90’s was always seen by all those involved as the decade of dissipation. We’ve only got a few months to run of…

Interview:2003-Dagaz

Luis Oliveira: You always reply with typewriter writing. Aren’t you computer friendly? Or is it mainly an aesthetic option?Douglas P.: Sadly my old typewriter has given up the ghost and as I can no longer find spare parts for it I have been forced into the modern world. Luis Oliveira: Do you indulge yourself in computer games? If so, do you enjoy “Return To Castle Wolfenstein”, “Commandos”, “Medal Of Honour”?Douglas P.: I have no time for games of ANY sort. Luis Oliveira: How do you conciliate your living in Australia…

(DEATH IN JUNE) ‘Words/lyrics are continuously coming to me, everywhere and anywhere…’ 07/02/2020, Danil VOLOHOVphotos: © The Hooded Man, Ruth Bayer Unlike any other artists of the British esoteric underground, Death In June has never seemed to be obvious. Since the very beginning of their career it was always quite hard to imagine the next work of Douglas P. What it would be like? Among all the people in the world, only one can answer this question. He’s currently residing in Australia and continues his musical path….

Interview:2006-Yahoo Groups 9

Richard Hawley I’ve been appreciating Richard Hawley’s solo work since Nigel at the Rough Trade Shop suggested I should listen to his recordings a few years ago. His other albums ‘Richard Hawley’ and ‘Late Night Final’ are also very good. If you can hunt down my fellow Adelaidian Luke Ashby’s work he is also in a similar vein but probably better! The most played CD of the New Year so far is ‘Profile’ by Githead which I got as a present. Colin Newman makes this sound like a great Wire…

Interview:2005-Yahoo Groups 8

2004 playlist There’s been a number of new releases this past year from groups like Werkraum, Luftwaffe, forseti, Sonnehagel, Isomer, Projekt Thule, Novo Homo and Darkwood that have probably already been mentioned on other people’s lists that I also enjoyed listening to – a lot! However, there are a few others that also hold special memories: The John Schroeder Orchestra ‘Space Age Soul’- a lounge-core classic! Enoch Light Presents ‘Spaced Out – Exploratory Trips through the music of Bach, Bacherach, The Beatles integrating the Moog, the guitar scene, electric harpsichord…
