CVLT Nation Interviews

What were the main reasons for starting your own label, Black Cloud? Do you have to be a bit more businesslike in your dealings, and how are you influenced by past experiences with labels like Peaceville? Will you be releasing any of your other bands on the label?

BRI – It’s been something I’ve always wanted to do. We’re really fortunate that the interest is there for Doom, that we’ve have finally managed to make it happen. It’s taken us 25 years to actually be able to release our own record and it feels good. Stick deals mostly with the “business” side of things, as I am crap at that sort of thing. He works hard at it, but it is a lot to take on. We don’t have any plans to release other bands, but I can’t say it will never happen. One thing at a time. As for past experiences, they have definitely influenced us. We have been ripped off by labels and friends, so it’s good to have complete control.

Doom’s plans for 2014?

SCOOT – We just got back from Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan and Australia – very intense traveling. We hope to maybe write/record a new 7″ later in the year, we want to shift all the cds and remaining vinyl we have left of CORRUPT FUCKING SYSTEM, so get in touch via or

BRI – We play two gigs in Russia this weekend, then Temples and Punk Illegal. Later on, we might be going back to the U.S. for a one-off fest and hopefully some gigs in Scotland. As far as CFS goes, we plan to get it released under license (with friends) this year in the U.S., South America and Europe. We’ve also talked about writing some new songs for an EP.

    Was fortunate enough to see Doom and Youth of Today all in one night,thanks to Timmy/Chaos in Tejas. Both bands destroyed in a positive way(one was a little drunker than the other.). When I was younger I had a little distro, I got in some of the Doom Police Bastard 7’s. I knew some punks that worked at an arcade inside the mall(long before hot topic ha,ha.). So I hiked it up to the mall,went into the arcade,sold some Doom records and scored some free video games. Selling crust to the kids in the mall!!!!! “Let’s All Be Friends. A Means To An End.”

    Saw Doom again, in Manchester supporting Voivod couple of years back. They were as awe inspiring as ever. Fantastic band. Fantastic ethos. Fantastic music. Long may they continue.
