Rapture & Reverend Bizarre - „everything is sexual“ (FSK16)
Here we have a Gibberish for you, which was unfortunately too short for the printed magazine, but we don´t want to keep this away from you...
Petri Eskelinen (Rapture) and Albert Magus (Reverend Bizarre)
Many beautiful things in Finnland begin with „R“: ravintola (bar), raha (money) and rakkaus (love). And of course Reverend Bizarre and Rapture... for STALKER Albert Magus and Petri Eskelinen had their outing as love etc. etc. experts.
Albert: Petri, how does it feel to be so handsome? Petri: Oh, it feels the best...
Albert: Did you have a lot of sex lately? Petri: No, my girlfriend is in Holland right now, I´ve been without it for two months Albert: Are you sure you don´t fancy a quick one? Petri: Check out the muscle (shows his hand) Albert: Check this hand! Petri: Wow, that´s sweet, you have done a lot with this! Albert: Yeah of course, I have to do it, because I am always sexual. Petri: So... Albert: Everything is sexual!! Like... homeless hobos, panties full of piss - it´s sexual. To sniff a hobo, lying alone, on a bench - it´s sexual. I feel aroused ... every time I see a hobo I wanna sniff his pants, (shouts) to sniff the dirt!!! Petri: You get aroused often? Albert: (shouts) Every day! When I see a boy, when I see a girl... Petri: How many times per day do you jerk off? Albert: At least three times Petri: You guys play Doom, right? So do you jerk off slowly? Like Doom style?
(in the background a certain STALKER journalist can be heard laughing out loud...)
Albert:If you got pussy once in your lifetime you would know this... Petri:I do get pussy once in a while... Albert: When you fuck it´s slow... Petri: Look, I just had some baaaad days... Albert: ... and when you wanna jerk off it´s quick! Petri: ... dry season, my girl is not here... So you are the doom-and-gloom band, so do you guys also laugh and smile and have fun?
Albert: When I´m among friends, people I like, really nice people like you, I always laugh. I remember Burt Reynolds saying „whenever you have sparetime, remember to laugh!“ The essence of Doom is not being gloomy all the time, it´s like playing from the soul - naked... Petri: This-is-too-serious, this-is-too-serious, this-is-too-serious... you guys have any pets?
Albert: I have a bunny called Hermanni! He is my best friend. I like animals better in any other case, except sex. I always thought when David Bowie sings about (sings) „Making love with the sea-gull“ I always thought it´s „sea-gull“. And I was like „this is great, this is just what I wanna do.“ That was my first point to make Rock´n´Roll music.
(the STALKER journalist can be heard in the background rolling on the floor laughing)
Petri: Fucking seagulls? Albert: Yeah, because they are flying. Petri: That IS a good reason to start playing Rock´n´Roll music.
