Interview:2007-Fosszilia

Recently published in an Hungarian magazine called ‘Fossilia’ is an extensive interview that took place over several weeks in early 2006. Over the next few days I will be posting my replies, some of which have the questions included but, not all. Those segments that don’t have the questions – such as this one – I’ll leave up to your collective imagination regarding what I’m talking about: 1. Much of what I’ve released in this decade has been retrospective as, after I departed world serpent distribution in 1999, I was…

Interview:2006-Occidental Congress

“The March Of Man’s True Destiny” Douglas Pearce interviewed by Brian Clark via email, 2006 One thing that most recording artists today are all but universally terrified of, is the accusation of being a “Nazi” or of having fascist sympathies or anything resembling latent “racism.” For the last several decades, the entertainment industry has been afflicted with a sort of puritanical political correctness which insures that anyone involved in that industry who strays from the accepted norms (one of them being anti-fascism and anti-racism), quickly finds themselves out-of-the loop in…

Interview:2006-Neo-Form

Exclusive Interview with Douglas P. – Death in June, June 2006 Due to the current situation concerning the German censorship of “Rose clouds of Holocaust” we are nearly forced to ask you about the progresses in this matter. Were you able to achieve an appeal trial?How did your fans react after the adjudication, what about showing support and solidarity with DIJ? At the moment we are still waiting to hear a reaction to our legal appeal from the other side in the matter. They haven’t responded in the time frame…

Interview:2006-Black

1.) DEATH IN JUNE have ever since been a topic for numerous discussions about how far art can go in its imagery. With putting “Rose clouds of holocaust” on the German index of publications dangerous to younger people end of last year it has become a legal matter for the first time. When did you hear about these things first? Did you have an idea what it can mean being put on this index? I was first told in about August, 2005 that after an official complaint had been filed…

Interview:2006-Elegy44

You are releasing through your website many old stuff (like “Burial”) and and also DVDs. A few words about it? It’s said that these recordings will NOT be available via any shop or music distributer for purchase. Whynot? You’re confused. Only the ‘Free Tibet’ release is not available via any shop or record distributer. It’s purely for Free download off of the internet from the main DIJ website. All other releases should be available from shops/mail order companies/internet sites and music distributers that normally stock Death In June. The back…

Interview:2006-Orkus

in all these years since you began with DIJ, the years of provocating, the playing with the fire – which has been the hardest experiences and which the finest? Without doubt the hardest time was when Patrick Leagas decided to leave the group in April,1985 after the release of “NADA!” and after many successful shows throughout Europe and with more lined up. I had to think very quickly on my feet as to where Death In June would go from there – if anywhere! And, equally without doubt, despite some…

Interview:2003-Dark Sonus

had the rare opportunity to have an interview with Douglas P. from Death in June on Friday December 12th in the afternoon via phone. I apologize with the delay in the review being posted. Douglas is a very interesting and down to earth person to talk to, and he cares about his fans quite a bit. Death in June formed sometime around 1980-1981 in the wake of the dissolution of Crisis. Douglas Pearce and Tony Wakeford were leftover from Crisis. Since than Death in June has utilized the talents of…

Being one of the primary founders of an entire genre of music, Death In June is still uncompromising and sometimes controversial, and is surrounded by an aura of mysticism that still continues to…

Interview:2003-State Art 20/20

What is your idea of perfect happiness? A Life without anxiety and fear, filled with Love, Reassurrance and Achievement and plenty of food in the cupboard, a roof over one’s head and a warm, welcoming bed where one can sleep easy at night. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be, what would you do? George W. Bush and I’d fuck anyone I wanted and tell the world about it too. Pretty much what he does already so he shouldn’t mind. Which person (living or…

Interview:2004-Compulsion

What can one say about Death In June’s NADA! that hasn’t been said before? NADA! holds such a pivotal position in the history of Death In June as it captures the group at the pinnacle of their songwriting partnership – a situation that couldn’t last and one that ultimately forced Douglas P. to pursue a solo vision following the release of NADA!. Combining post-punk credentials with the burgeoning electronic scene NADA! is almost schizophrenic in its approach. ‘He Stood Like Jesus’- an off the cuff remark from NADA! collaborator David…

Interview:2005-Heathen Harvest

DP: I’m very happy about that because I see Death In June as part of a European cultural revival. I’m pleased that the Old Gods are being resurrected, for want of a better word. Old symbols. I feel very pleased that I am a part of that process and that I have had influence. At this stage in the game, so to speak, it’s not false modesty to say that I am content with my influence. It’s not beating my own drum, it’s fact. If nothing ever were to happen…

Interview:2000-Dagoberts Revenge

White, Uncircumcised Cocks An Interview With Death In June’s Douglas Pearce by Tracy Twyman DR: How did you first become involved in the occult? What was the first Aleister Crowley book you read, and how did it affect you? DP: I think my interest in the occult has always been there. I don’t feel I’ve had any choice in the matter. As a child my parents had me exorcised because I kept having visions of all kinds of horrors and would never sleep. This went on for a really long…

Interview:2001-Heimdallr

Interview by Simone This is a question I’ve been asking to quite a few bands in the last times: 20 years are passed! If you look back to the very beginning of Death In June, what are your feelings, do you have any regrets, is there something you’d like to change? In the 20 years of Death In June’s existence the only true and deep regret I have is that I didn’t get Death In June, and of course the entire NER/Twilight Command catalogue, away from World Serpent Distribution sooner…

Interview:2001-Polish Interview

This are the answers to questions from a Polish magazine, whose name escapes me, asked in 2001. I’m sure your imaginations can fill in the blanks of the missing questions! I never got to see a finished copy so I can only assume this was published somewhere in Poland in late 2001/early 2002: 1. I don’t feel the 2 are related whatsoever. ”Apocalyptic” is a word used by others not by me! Anyway, I never believed in putting Death In June in any sort of musical genre or ghetto and…

Interview:2002-Edge of time

Interview:2002-Edge of time DEATH IN JUNE Europe Has Burnt and Burns Again [January 2002, by Audrius Ozalas, Zydrius, Ugne; intro by AO] Death In June always has been something more than music. Since the beginning of the 80s, for many people it was the source of inspiration, for many it had changed the worldview, and for many it had changed the understanding of how the music should sound like. Call it some kind of religion, and maybe you will be right. Apocalyptic visions, magical symbols –- the music of Douglas…

Interview:1991-Compulsion Magazine

An interview with Douglas P Death In June was formed in 1981 by Douglas Pearce, Patrick Leagas and Tony Wakeford. Since 1985 Death In June has consisted of one sole member, Douglas Pearce, aided by others if and when required. It is with this present incarnation of Death In June that this interview is concerned (for a complete dissection of Death In June and their numerous releases read the excellent and informative articles on Death In June in Fractured #1 & #3). Since the last split in personnel Death In…
