Hide Your Deer Away Again!

The Bambi Molesters

Play Out Of Tune


From Chris Pearce's Interview with Dalibor Pavicic

OK, let’s start with the obvious first question and one which I’m sure you’ve been asked to many times; how does Croatia come to be the home of one of the world’s finest contemporary surf bands?

Unfortunately, our country's rating is currently so low and has been too often connected with Balkan war games. For this very reason I'm not surprised that people often ask similar questions. I mean, the right question would be "Is there any kind of music in Croatia?". It is a kind of exotic thing to play a surf music in Croatia but not more exotic than playing surf music in Germany or Italy. It has certainly different feel than the music which comes from US probably because of the fact that we don't surf and don't have an ocean view. I guess you can feel that in our music.

Can you give us a concise history of the Bambi Molesters?

It was back in 1994 when Dinko and I decided to form the band. At first we thought to play only covers but I came up with few originals and than we found Lada (bass) and Hrvoje (drums). In 1995 we released our first tape called The Bambi Molesters Play Out of Tune for an independent label, Listen Loudest. Soon afterwards Plastic Bomb from Germany released our first 7" single with 4 songs (2 of them with vocals). Sometime in 1996 we sent a tape from another recording session to KFJC DJ Phil Dirt and he gave us a very good review. That is when we really decided to play only instrumentals. In May 1997 the band recorded material for their first CD. 16 tracks were recorded in Croatia and then sent to Phil Dirt who did mixing, production and mastering. The CD titled Dumb Loud Hollow Twang was released in October 1997 on Dirty Old Town independent label.

I always liked the name The Bambi Molesters. How did it come about?

It is a sort of an internal joke and it has nothing to do with animals or molesting. The name came as a joke referring to one of our friends who fell in love with a girl nicknamed Bambi. Of course she couldn't care less about him and he didn't want to quit. Not that he was molesting her or something. I think you get the idea. We were mostly into the comic called Hate at that time, so we felt like it was an appropriate name for the band. We often thought about changing the name because it has nothing to do with the music we play, but...

**Sorry folks. Thanks to the evil eye of Dr Al Zombie who caught that track #6 was missing on this .rar. No excuse, just to much in a hurry. The .rar has been updated and replaced. If you want just track #6 to insert, drop me a note and I will send it to you off-line. Sorry for the sloppyness.
