THE TRAGIC STORY OF A FRIEND
First of all…who are Dperd? For our readers, can you explain the story
of your band?
are Carlo Disimone and Valeria Buono. Both of them were
members of Fear of the Storm, a band that in the nineties released a
self-produced demotape, two tape albums, and the mini-cd called "1995",
on Energeia, a Neapolitan label. By the end of 2007 the release is
scheduled of all the band's back catalogue, including a previously
unreleased long-playing cd that was recorded in 1996, just before the band
ceased their activities.
taking part in sundry musical projects, at the beginning of the new
millennium Valeria and Carlo formed a new project of their own. As "Dperd"
they have released a self-produced cd-r entitled "2003" and have
released the full-length cd "3non". This latter work has
received critical acclaim and praise in national and international
magazines and web-zines.
dperd are working on their new album, "Regalerò il mio Tempo"

bloke, a man of few words,
songs, as I wrote in my reviews, are the result of many influences, but
Dperd gets originality…can you describe who’s the main inspiration?
think we can't talk about a main source of inspiration, for too many
things have influenced us in our long musical
sound, there is a particular attention to create an arrangement which
is very easy, but very dark and intense, how was the arrangement
with an early idea, on which the instrumental frame is built that gives
life to the track.
you describe by three adjectives Dperd music?
all these years what does motivate you to make music?
a professional musician, too keep on playing is a way to earn his living. one
can never know if he really feels what he proposes.
is a very particular song…who’s the inspiration…who is Ali?
track Ali(de) is based on the tragic story of a friend
of ours who died and was found mummified in her flat, two years after her

currently working on new tracks. i think we'll give more chance to
circumstances than before, as far as the mixing is concerned
game of the tower is our old game.. You’re on a high tower and with you
there are 3 bands…you have to push down two of them saving the third
you there are:
Joy Division, Bauhaus,
very difficult choice. i guess we'd keep joy
division. if anything, they're the only ones we could never see live
