Marijn Verbiesen is 1/3 of Sweat Tongue, 1/2 of JSCA and completely herself as Red Brut.

JB Ever since Niels and Pauwel run the KRAAK label, you’ve been booked a lot at KRAAK events, in various combinations, so who’s the one at KRAAK with a crush on you, Niels or Pauwel?

MV I think it’s Niels’ left knee and Pauwel’s right shoulder.

JB Last time I saw you was at the Steenstraat in Brussels. This is what I liked about you: you were drinking beer out of a bottle, not a glass. You were smoking. And you were wearing a black leather dress. I was talking to Russell Haswell recently, while he was drinking a beer and smoking a cigarette. He said: “Playing music without smoking and drinking, that would be a complete waste of time, wouldn’t it?” Russell Haswell is always right, right?

MV Well, both drinking and smoking get the “right” fluids going with me for making music but I like to make that happen in other ways as well. So: no.

JB No is the second best answer one can get in an interview. Yes being the best of course.

MV Maybe yes, that would make things easier.

JB If you’re a woman in a men’s world which is noise and exper­imental music, is this the kind of of crap you have to deal with: answering inappropriate ques­tions which have nothing to do with your music?

MV Before no, this would be it then.

JB Is this where you’re comming from: post-industrial lofi tape cut-ups?

MV No, I come from a town called Wezep.

JB Why do you prefer dirty sound?

MV In the dirt I feel the most clean.

JB Explain.

MV Basically, when I first moved to Rotterdam I met the two people whom are closest to me. Before that I was not doing anythingwith this kind of music. In a way, they brought out the dirt in me while I was getting to know them, and Rotterdam. At one point one of them proposed renting a rehearsal space and just try and play something.

JB Those two people being Michiel Klein and Bébé Beliz?

MV Yes.

JB Perfect answer. I just bought your tape on Lal Lal Lal. Is Red Brut your esoterical side, your soft one?

MV My main soft side is my ass. I feel Red Brut shows the most of me, actually. Making music for me is like tapping into all the different “organs” I have. With Red Brut I can put everything I feel and experience on tape, whatever I feel like doing.
