ADULT. are Detroit’s electronic punk band infusing synths, drum machines, guitars and distorted vocals. Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus are the founders, heart and soul and I had the lucky permission to interview this incredibly influential band.
Hello Adam and Nicola, thank you for taking the time to answer some very anticipated questions. You’ve been working together since 1998, how do you feel you’ve evolved as musicians/producers? And the influences you experienced on the way?
We actually started working together in 1997 when we played 4 shows in Germany, including Berlin. As a matter of fact, our VERY first show together was in Berlin. As for evolving, The Way Things Fall is our fifth album. We feel that on all our previous albums and recordings we always worked to push our limits into areas maybe we were uncomfortable in. With this new release we have taken those years of pushing to make a very refined and cohesive record, by finding our limits (and sometimes crossing our limits) we found our boundaries.
As for experiences, after 17 years there are of course many things that happen that influence you. One of the main things is meeting and getting to know those that have inspired you over the years; people like Micheal Gira, Genesis P’Orridge, Douglas J. McCarthy, etc. Sharing doubts and questions and motivations with people that still make music art year after year is very inspiring.
I met Jemek Jemowit almost three years ago downstairs in White Trash’s Diamond Lounge. We were both about to rock the stages that night and my band was a virgin to Berlin’s heavy electro underground scene. Since then I’ve been hooked to Jemek’s sound and friendship and it was a pleasant surprise when I was asked to interview him on his forthcoming album TEKKNO POLO.
Hey Jemek, how are you?
I’m fine, thanks!
The last time I saw you, you pressed a flyer into my hand telling me to come to your music video launch party. How did that go and what can you tell us about the video?
The song for the video is “Bigos“, a traditional polish meat stew made of sauerkraut. The video esthetic is inspired by the polish 90s movement Disco Polo, check out the fabulous video “Hey czy ty wiesz” by Classic. The idea about my video is to represent the basic concept of TEKKNO POLO: Be polish, not polished.
