Mamma Vendetta nasceu livre, livre de conceitos ou direções pré-estabelecidas, somente a idéia de juntar o melhor da música e todos as formas de expressão artística ou manifestos ligados ao mundo independente. Mamma Vendetta é muito mais que uma agência de shows, funciona como uma verdadeira comunidade que agora coloca os pés para fora do gueto numa tentativa de mostrar ao mundo a variedade e atitude da arte independente elevando-a a outro nível. A família Vendetta iniciou suas atividades em 2009 trazendo alguns dos mais criativos e excitantes artistas da cena atual.

Mamma Vendeta é sobre musica para amantes da musica, é sobre cinema para os amantes de cinema e sobre verdade para aqueles que sabem conviver com ela. Para aqueles que procuram por algo que seja diferente de sua própria rotina, inquietos por novidades, não existe o tradicional quando o assunto é arte, não existe espaço para valores tradicionais, a arte sempre esteve aqui, mas continuamente em mutação.

ROB K FALA DE THE CHUMPS, PUNK ROCK, WOODSTOCK, HEROINA, BILL GATES, AMOR E MUITO MAIS em entrevista exclusiva via msn para Mamma Vendetta

Sexta feira de noite fria em São Paulo, nada como ficar em casa embaixo de uma pilha de cobertores, pipoca, animais alimentados, lap top na mão e bons amigos no MSN!!! Ainda mais quando um desses amigos é nada mais do que o lendário Rob K.

Em poucas palavras Rob foi um dos criadores do hard core em 1976 quando formou a banda The Chumps de Washington. Depois formou os Workdogs já nos anos 80 em NY que contou em suas gravações com Jon Spencer, Popa Chubby, Ivan Julian, Kid Congo Powers ( The Cramps e Bad Seeds), Marce Hall, Lydia Lunch, Moe Tucker (Velvet Underground).

Hoje, aos 56 anos de idade, casado há 34 anos com Caki sua namorada desde a adolescência em Washington D.C., Rob mora no Hawaii trabalhando na construção civil para sua sobrevivência e mantendo o duo The Jam Messengers com Marco Butcher compondo pela internet e realizando tours pelo mundo, sua verdadeira alma.

Rob é de longe um dos caras mais agradáveis que eu já conheci, extremamente educado, inteligente, bem humorado, corpo perfeito esculpido pela prática da yoga por mais de vinte anos, dando inveja a muitos meninos, um cara que depois de 30 anos de estrada não tem medo de pegar um ônibus mais uma vez e ir levar a sua música para qualquer lugar onde o chamarem!

Rob é o rei das palavras, suas letras são a expressão de tudo o que vê e sente, desde a pizza que recebeu como pagamento na noite anterior, até a indignação com o mundo em que vivemos.

Da nossa longa conversa, um trecho foi excepcionalmente engraçado e elucidativo sobre o início da sua carreira como músico com a formação dos The Chumps!

Confira aqui, o que uma noite fria em São Paulo e uma tarde chuvosa em Volcano no Hawaii pode trazer de informação sobre a história da cultura punk.

Com vocês Mr. Rob K:

[07/11/09 01:51:00 ] robk : what changed was when I realized I could do it myself
[07/11/09 01:51:05 ] robk : that took punk
[07/11/09 01:51:26 ] robk : I used to think musicians were GODS

[07/11/09 01:52:09 ] ale maestro : that's why you became the chump?
[07/11/09 01:52:19 ] robk : one of the reasons
[07/11/09 01:52:35 ] robk : hate to say it but the name fit us like a GLOVE

[07/11/09 01:53:00 ] ale maestro : RARARAARRAARRA
[07/11/09 01:53:11 ] robk : jeez one of the most DIFFICULT bands ever
[07/11/09 01:53:16 ] robk : and my FIRST
[07/11/09 01:53:17 ] ale maestro : how old were you?
[07/11/09 01:53:21 ] robk : so I had no idea
[07/11/09 01:53:28 ] ale maestro : why difficult?
[07/11/09 01:53:42 ] robk : well kinda old by band standards
[07/11/09 01:53:45 ] robk : lets see
[07/11/09 01:53:50 ] robk : I was married
[07/11/09 01:53:58 ] robk : guess it was 76
[07/11/09 01:54:02 ] robk : so 23
[07/11/09 01:54:30 ] robk : difficult because they guys were STRANGE
[07/11/09 01:54:40 ] robk : NOT musician types AT ALL
[07/11/09 01:54:46 ] robk : I was the closest
[07/11/09 01:54:59 ] robk : they were kinda more like sculptors
[07/11/09 01:55:10 ] robk : wayyyy introverted
[07/11/09 01:55:16 ] ale maestro : rararara
[07/11/09 01:55:19 ] ale maestro : I see
[07/11/09 01:55:39 ] ale maestro : and didn't know how to play?
[07/11/09 01:55:43 ] robk : I don't have a CLUE why we even did the shit
[07/11/09 01:56:01 ] robk : I GUESS because there was one guy with rock ambitions
[07/11/09 01:56:07 ] ale maestro : rarararararararraar
[07/11/09 01:56:13 ] robk : and he and I started the chumps
[07/11/09 01:56:34 ] robk : but he had VERY WEIRD theories about music
[07/11/09 01:56:51 ] ale maestro : weird theories?
[07/11/09 01:56:56 ] robk : completely WRONG as far as traditional theory goes
[07/11/09 01:57:04 ] robk : but I didn't know that
[07/11/09 01:57:30 ] ale maestro : what kind of music did he listened to that time?
[07/11/09 01:57:36 ] robk : eventually another guy who knew a LITLLE about how music works joined the band
[07/11/09 01:57:48 ] robk : he LOVED Jimi Hendrix
[07/11/09 01:58:00 ] robk : but there only 1 Jimi
[07/11/09 01:58:02 ] robk : sorry
[07/11/09 01:58:11 ] ale maestro : rarararara
[07/11/09 01:58:33 ] robk : anyway the Jimi guy got TOTALLY threatened by the guy who knew how to tune
[07/11/09 01:58:46 ] robk : that was almost ALL he knew
[07/11/09 01:59:10 ] robk : but Jimi guy calls this BIG SERIOUS BAND MEETING
[07/11/09 01:59:34 ] robk : and the purpose was to GET RID of the guy who knew how to tune
[07/11/09 01:59:39 ] ale maestro : arararra
[07/11/09 01:59:42 ] robk : !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[07/11/09 01:59:43 ] robk : hahahah
[07/11/09 01:59:45 ] ale maestro : great!
[07/11/09 01:59:49 ] robk : SOOOOOOOOO
[07/11/09 01:59:55 ] ale maestro : arararrarararra
[07/11/09 02:00:12 ] robk : even CHUMPS could see that it was a self destructive idea!
[07/11/09 02:00:19 ] ale maestro : RARARRARARAARRA
[07/11/09 02:00:38 ] robk : so in the end the Jimi guy walked
[07/11/09 02:00:44 ] robk : BUT
[07/11/09 02:01:31 ] robk : now I had a band of TOTAL introverts that truly could not give a fuck about any of the usual things like gigging or recording
[07/11/09 02:01:49 ] robk : they liked to watch TV while we practiced
[07/11/09 02:01:58 ] ale maestro : raarararrarararara
[07/11/09 02:02:04 ] robk : seriously watch TV
[07/11/09 02:02:16 ] robk : we used to play with TVs on stage
[07/11/09 02:02:31 ] ale maestro : to play???
[07/11/09 02:02:46 ] ale maestro : the shows were wit the tv on the stage?
[07/11/09 02:02:51 ] robk : so I was the head guy without having a single clue about any of it
[07/11/09 02:03:01 ] robk : didn't know how to play
[07/11/09 02:03:05 ] robk : how to sing
[07/11/09 02:03:11 ] robk : how to manage
[07/11/09 02:03:24 ] robk : only thing I knew was about heroin
[07/11/09 02:03:45 ] robk : which was a thing I shared with a couple of the other guys
[07/11/09 02:03:56 ] robk : and down the tubes we went!!!
[07/11/09 02:03:57 ] robk : hahahha
[07/11/09 02:04:11 ] ale maestro : ararrarararara
[07/11/09 02:04:26 ] robk : more TV watching than playing after a while
[07/11/09 02:04:31 ] ale maestro : i'm listening to it now on myspace!
[07/11/09 02:04:36 ] robk : hahaha

[07/11/09 02:06:02 ] robk : never came out then
[07/11/09 02:06:25 ] ale maestro : so it took 3 years to put out the album!
[07/11/09 02:06:34 ] robk : 30
[07/11/09 02:06:42 ] robk : hahaha
[07/11/09 02:06:43 ] ale maestro : rararra
[07/11/09 02:06:44 ] robk : yes
[07/11/09 02:07:25 ] ale maestro : but how did you recorded the songs, wasn't there a vinyl?
[07/11/09 02:07:49 ] robk : we did a 7" in 77-78 I guess
[07/11/09 02:08:12 ] robk : and we THOUGHT it would be an album - vinyl
[07/11/09 02:08:32 ] robk : but I would have had to be the one to sell it
[07/11/09 02:08:37 ] robk : and I DID try
[07/11/09 02:08:52 ] robk : but I really didn't know what I was doing then

[07/11/09 02:11:18 ] robk : no fucking doubt
[07/11/09 02:11:36 ] robk : it was really cheap to record as a matter of fact
[07/11/09 02:11:48 ] robk : might have been less than 700US
[07/11/09 02:11:53 ] robk : peanuts
[07/11/09 02:11:56 ] ale maestro : raarrarara
[07/11/09 02:12:07 ] robk : but our priorities were DRUGS first
[07/11/09 02:12:08 ] robk : hahah
[07/11/09 02:13:03 ] robk : so 700 was BIG to us
[07/11/09 02:13:04 ] ale maestro : I see, if he hadn't had the idea to record you would spend it with candies!
[07/11/09 02:13:16 ] robk : sure
[07/11/09 02:13:29 ] robk : it was GREAT he put up the $$
[07/11/09 02:13:37 ] robk : I was leaving town
