Interview: Das Moth

REACTIONS: 0

A former Damn Arms member, Das Moth (aka Timothy Sullivan) drew a lot of attention with his recent brilliant debut EP “Moon/Wrong” on Cut Copy’s Cutters Records. Originally from Australia, he moved to Japan in 2009, where he was deeply influenced by the country’s culture and people’s mentality. Apart from Japan, the talented producer and dj is in love with disco and travelling. In view of his upcoming European tour this summer, he pulled over at Last Gas Station for a little chat about music, his influences and future plans, as well as about disco. Keep an eye on this guy!

La.Ga.Sta.: What made you turn to disco?
Das Moth: Music needs to make you feel something…something worthwhile. Listening to Ramones or Morrissey does this. So does listening to Al Green or Inner Life. It just seems right.

What’s the story behind your name?
My older sister, Ami, has always called me “Moth”. Since i was a kid. I always thought it would be nice to use it for a project one day. The “Das” part…I’m not sure. It sounds better than “the moth”.

What has influenced you most in the past years?
Life changes I guess. Challenging myself in as many ways possible. Leaving Australia and moving to Japan has had a huge influence on me. The people I’ve met here…even the people I haven’t met.. just admired.

Has your music be influenced by your stay in Japan?
Totally. Since living here I can now see it becoming more apparent. I’ve always been a huge fan of YMO, Flower Traveling Band and sound track composers Shigeru Umebayashi & Ryuichi Sakamoto…but recently I’ve found myself listening to them all more and more. It pretty much gives me the confidence to try new ideas and sounds, because they all push the limit on that so well.

Five words to describe Das Moth…
Skinny, White, Kid, Tokyo, Tattoos.

What excites you in today’s Australian music scene?
Last time I was in Australia [Cutters Records Tour w/ Cut Copy & Nile Delta] I realised I was sooo far out of “the loop” with what was happening in Australia. Canyons are always impressive. The new records from Midnight Juggernauts, Tame Impala & Cut Copy were all amazing. I’m also looking forward to the long awaited new Avalanches album.

What makes you feel bored?
A dead laptop battery in an airport.

What moves your imagination?
Bill Withers – My Imagination.

What turns you on?
Babes.

What is your favorite sound?
A Rhodes Piano.

Which is your greatest fear?
Snakes.

Which is your favorite destination?
I love traveling. Currently, I’m really looking forward to visiting Europe in June. But I would have to say my favourite destination would be Tokyo. Every time I come back here, it’s exciting as the first time.

What three things do you always travel with?
iPhone, change for a morning coffee & the book I’m reading.

What’s your plans for 2011?
Release a new record. Travel…I mean “Tour”. Make Das Moth into a live band. Drink coffee. Hang out.
