INTERVIEW WITH XAVIER OF AZBIN RECORDS

Azbin records: Crazy French label that releases great bands like Le Pécheur and Regal

Who are you wearing?

Most of the time I wear Mickey Mouse socks and Donald slippers. I used to have Batman underwear but I've lost it after a fight against Robin. What a shame...

Favorite song about food?

I don't really care about food. I'm not a good French person for that...just need a bottle of good wine.

First band you ever signed?

My first release was the debut album of Le Pécheur called "Medieval Dreams". It's one of my bands, and please, le pécheur doesn't mean "The Fisherman" (Le pêcheur in french) but "The Sinner". Even French people make this mistake: "He le pécheur, n'oubliez pas vos canes a pêche. LOL."

Band you wish you never signed?

I wish that I never have to release this band called Yak 'cause I love it too much and he deserves better than Azbin Records.

What band would you sell your soul to sign?

I'm not ready to sell my soul yet...

First thing you tell bands when you sign them?

"Please guys, don't split in the next few months!"

Weirdest thing you ever had to do to sign a band?

I promise them glory, a lot of money, that I'll organize a lot of things for them, that I'll press thousands and thousands of vinyl copies! HAHA! Too naive!

What would you be doing if you didn't have a label?

Well, I would have been a math teacher for my entire life and I would have committed suicide, or I would have planted trees in Canada (this still interests me, I think I'll do it one day!).

Best way to save money on recording?

What money are you talking about?

78 RPM or 8-tracks?

Hmm, I don't think that I really understand the question...anyway, I'd say 8 tracks. Why? Just because I've just bought a Tascam 8 track recorder, and I love it!
