Intervista in Italiano!! Interview ahead of Friday's Rome gig .. http://www.openmagazine.info/2017/10/02/mick-moss-lantimateria-contro-la-depressione/ ------------------- English Version - 1. Mick, the Antimatter Rome event is fast approaching... what kind of show we can expect? MM - Rome will be the 310th Antimatter show, and the last one for some time actually, so you can expect us to play and celebrate our recent setlist one last time before I go into hibernation for a year. I've had a good run since 2012 when I started touring constantly, but I really feel as though I need to pause for a bit now. With that in mind, Rome will be quite special for us. I'm looking forward to it. 2. “The Judas Table” album sounds fantastic: how much is complicated to get that same polished sound live? MM - Thank you. You know, its impossible to replicate the sound of an album live, the sound of an album is all down to a few different factors - equipment used in the studio, the vibe of the performance at the time, the producers personal touch, and dont forget that when were out on tour, each venue is different. What we can ensure is that we play the songs in the moment, and that translates, hopefully, as energy to the audience. 3. 2000/2017, Antimatter is nearly 18 years old. What was the best and the worst part of the story so far? MM - The worst part was probably our gig in a metal festival back in 2003, which we should never have been booked onto, as we were playing in an acoustic format, and sandwiched in between three power metal/prog metal bands. Ridiculous decision and had I been more tuned in back then I would have vetoed it straight away, but as I was relatively new to the music business I just assumed that the people making decisions knew what they were doing. We were totally disrespected by the audience at the time, who just wanted their metal. The best part ? I dont know, there have been many highs, thankfully! 4. Wikipedia describes Antimatter as a melancholic rock band. Do you agree with that? MM - I dont know... it describes some Antimatter music, but not all. The melancholic thing is becoming less and less relevant nowadays. Each album is different anyway, and theres a Synthpop/Darkwave undercurrent in lots of Antimatter music that is always left out of any description, I dont know why. 5. I was a bit surprised that you decided to have female vocalist on the first couple of Antimatter albums as your voice seems perfect to the music to me... MM - That was the decision of my ex-partner, Duncan Patterson. He wanted to have female vocals and I was really unconfident with my voice at the time, so I didnt disagree. I did sing a few parts here and there though. Looking back I should have sung the albums from the start, not least because I was the live vocalist, and it was a weird choice to have a different vocalist on the album than the vocalist that was on stage when the audience turned up. I guess we can go on all day about what we should have done differently in the past though! 6. To me, the key to Antimatter success is the perfect balance between acoustic and electric elements. How do you write your songs? MM - I'm always writing. I write mostly on acoustic guitar, though lately I have been writing using studio gear, keyboards, electric guitar etc, because Im getting more and more amped-up in where I want to go musically as I get older. I will always have in the back of my mind subjects that I want to write about, so lyrics will always be waiting patiently in my brain for the right song to come along. 7. “Timeline: An Introduction to Antimatter”: how did you mange to compile the tracklist? MM - During the making of 'The Judas Table', my booking agent noticed that the Antimatter page on Spotify was dominated by the lo-fi, female vocal, downbeat, retrospective collection 'Alternative Matter'. As we were were playing a record number of festival appearances that year in front of huge new audiences, he advised me to get a compilation out of all the male vocal, guitar orientated songs we were playing that year so that new listeners wouldn't think they had found the wrong Spotify page, and then just fuck off and listen to Supertramp or something. So thats where it came from, the whole reason d'etre of that compilation. Within that frame it was easy to compile the songs. I named it 'Timeline:An Introduction To...' so that it wouldnt get confused with any ''Greatest Hits'' or ''Best Of'' collection, which is all subjective anyway. I hope it served as a launch pad for people who had heard Antimatter live for the first time that year and then went looking on Spotify. 8. Is there an Antimatter song that stands out in your heart and why? MM - 'Epitaph' and 'Conspire' I suppose. Both of them are incredibly personal, and written as an exorcism to some very extreme emotions. They both still touch me deeply whenever I hear or perform them. 9. Stefano Soffia sounds like an Italian name to me :) Is there a bit of Italy in the “Lights Out” album? MM - You know, there may be. I cant remember exactly where Stefano was from, as it was almost 15 years ago when we were with him. It very well might be Italy ! 10. Liverpool for you is.... MM - Home. It is a city that has a very specific personality.

Rest in peace. It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing away in early June of graphic artist Adrian Owen, who created the cover for Antimatter's 'Leaving Eden' album as well as the photography for the back and inner of 'Lights Out'. Adrian's image, that would end up visually defining 'Leaving Eden', struck me the minute I laid eyes on it back in 2006... a very clever and experienced take on mental health. I was so happy to have him agree to let me use it, it was the perfect pairing of an image with the subject matter. Ado was, first and foremost, a good heart, and I was in contact with him recently up until the very end. He left us aged only 41. Mick

ITS TIME TO STOP!! Since 2013 I feel like I have been constantly on tour, with various incarnations of the Antimatter live band, and now its time to rest and take charge of my personal life, and my sanity! I am now at the start of an 18 month break from touring, and I intend to return, at the very earliest, in late 2018. Between now and then I might do the odd show here or there, but as for touring, that is finished (apart from a small handful of prior live engagements in Sept/Oct) I am, at this stage, completely burned out, and I need to stop moving now in order to have the energy to move forward at a later date. Thank you to everyone who took the time to come out and support Antimatter over the years, we have shared some unforgettable times together!! Here's to renewed vigour .... Mick .
