Void interview May 2nd, 1997
Unquiet Void is probably best known for several compilation appearances including one with a collaboration with Lycia. Unquiet Void is dark ambient stuff. also present at the interview was Tara of Lycia.
QRD – are you still planning to release stuff on your own label & what are the benefits or problems with that?
Jason – yes & the benefit is I can have complete & utter control over it. the problem is I'm trying to figure out how feasible it really is at the moment.
QRD – what crowd of people do you think would be the most accepting of your music?
Jason – I'm not sure. I'd certainly like to stray away from the gothic industrial scene, that's just not where it's coming from.
QRD – which is a more derogatory term, man or boy?
Jason – boy. I don't know why.
QRD – how many people would you say are in your potential sales market?
Jason – how many people? I don't have any idea. I hear from people like Mike Van Portfleet that from all these compila-tions I've been on, that all these people are like, "Unquiet Void blah-blah-blah-blah" & no one writes to me so I have no idea.
QRD – what's the most rock & roll thing you've ever done & the most goth thing you've ever done?
Jason – the most rock & roll thing I've ever done was a song called "Dust" & the most goth thing I ever did was that same song.
QRD – I was talking about in life, not just in music.
Jason – oh, the most rock & roll thing I ever did, I'd have to say, was cow tipping & the most goth thing I ever did was put on black nail polish.
QRD – do you want to play live at all & if so how often?
Jason – yeah, once in a great while. I'll start off slow & see how it goes.
QRD – how many times a year, four?
Jason – probably. hell, once a year if I could hack it. I'd like to play at something like the Projekt festival.
QRD – what's your favorite love song?
Jason – "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" by Roberta Flack & I happen to like Cindytalk's version much better.
Tara ? how could you not?
Kristy (Jason's fiancee) ? I thought it was "Night & Day?"
Jason – no, "Night & Day" is also, but my absolute favorite if I absolutely had to pick one would be that.
QRD – what's your favorite Swans' song?
Jason – "Mona Lisa."
QRD – do you believe in unconditional love?
Jason – yes.
QRD – just like that, huh? is that from humans to humans?
Jason – yes. I love my cat & that's unconditional love, but I also believe there's unconditional love in humans.
QRD – what action figure would you most like to be?
Jason – hold on a second. I think I'd like to be... Bane.
QRD – that's from Batman?
Jason – yeah, he broke Batman's back.
QRD – any older ones?
Jason – how old?
QRD – like the seventies.
Jason – yeah, I'd like to be one of the Herculoids.
QRD – they had action figures?
Jason – I think so, they came out with that big green thing that they rode on with the shit that came out of the horns & stuff like that.
Tara ? who was the chick on He-Man with the pink hair?
QRD – Teela?
Jason – no, that was the Sorceress wasn't it?
QRD – no, the Sorceress was a bird.
Tara ? she had pink hair & she was really cool. she was a bad guy.
Jason – not Evil Lynn?
Tara ? no.
QRD – it wasn't Evil Lynn because she didn't even have hair usually, she wore a hat.
Jason – you know, they didn't come out with many females for He-Man; just Teela, Evil Lynn, & the Sorceress.
QRD – but then She-Ra came out.
Tara ? there was a girl with pink hair though & I can't remember her name.
Jason – you know who you're thinking of? Jem.
Tara ? no.
Jason – aww.... it's pretty sad that I know about these things.
QRD – she was definitely evil though, nothing good about her?
Tara ? nope. except her hair.
Jason – I'd like to know who that was, I was a big He-Man fan. I would have He-Man & Evil Lynn & Teela all have sex.
QRD – did you ever see that new He-Man?
Jason – that was bullshit.
Tara ? I think she was on the newer He-Man. not the one where he had the page boy, he had a pony tail.
QRD – I don't know the pony tail years as well.
Tara ? you know who else Cheetara. I don't want to look like her, but that would be my name.
Jason – she had that staff & Panthro had the coolest num-chuks with cat paws at the end.
Tara ? Thundercats just kicked ass.
QRD – do you remember they got some new Thundercats all of a sudden? three new ones, where did they come from?
Tara ? they were on some island, they had been trapped there.
Jason – Snarf, I liked him, he was cool.
QRD – you know, they're making a comeback.
Tara ? Mum- Ra was so cool.
Jason – Mum-Ra was awesome. "Give me the might... the power...."
Tara ? he had that slime....
Jason – & Slithis the reptile toad looking dude with the webbed ears.
QRD – yeah, but I didn't that was his name.
Jason – yeah or maybe Slithy....
Tara ? Slythe...
Jason – there you go Slythe.
QRD – but then Jackal Man was just Jackal Man & Monkey Man was just Monkey Man.
Tara ? what was the vulture guys name?
QRD – Voltar....
Jason – no... Vulture Man, that's what it was.
Tara ? Liono, he was hot. he was a fox.
Jason – who was that Panthro, Cheetara....
QRD – Tigra.
Jason – right.
Tara ? Wily Kit & Wily Kat.
QRD – Wily Kit & Wily Kat were bad asses.
Jason – they were the Wonder Twins for the nineties.
QRD – they're ten to fifteen years older than Liono, so they must be forty-five by the time they get to whatever planet they live on & they're still punk rock ass kickers throwing shit.
Tara ? remember they had those skateboard things.
Jason – yeah, they had those in Back to the Future 2.
Tara ? why don't they have that on?
QRD – they still do where I live.
Jason – really? they released all the episodes on tape. did you ever see the movie? "Genesis" where it tells how they got there & how Liono got the glove.
QRD – that was just the first episode, it was an hour long.
Jason – next question.
QRD – which Simpson do you most identify with?
Jason – Homer.
QRD – why?
Jason – he likes donuts & he sits around in his underwear with his hand in his pants belching at the television.
QRD – Zack, Screech, or Slater; which one's you?
Jason – Screech. I'd be ashamed to be considered Zack or Slater because I think they both have latent Oedipal complexes. Screech is cool, they gave him a bum rap.
Tara ? Screech got really ugly the older he got.
Jason – okay, maybe I don't resemble him in that way.
QRD – or maybe you do.
Jason – the opinion's subjective.
QRD – what's your favorite cartoon?
Jason – Space Ghost.
QRD – the old one?
Jason – the new one's pretty good too. that & Dungeons & Dragons, Thundercats, the Smurfs.
QRD – what do you think about the internet, are you for or against it & why?
Jason – I think it sucks. it's evil.
all the people on it are insane & I want nothing to do with it.
