Interview: Petroleum By-Product (January 2010)
State your name and what you do in the band, and who else plays in the band?
Sally Dige Jørgensen - Creative Director. Vanessa Turner - Marketing and Sales. Robin Borawski - Public Relations.
Tell us a little about the history of the band.
It was a project that initially began with the focus on our modern-day mono-culture. We were fascinated by the introduction of new artificial materials and technology and how these unnatural mediums have become naturalized into our everyday lifestyle.
We enjoy most to glamourize the lifestyle our generation has manifested, and thus have come up with our own Petroleum By-Product manifesto:
“Denaturalize – Dehumanize – Efficient Lives – Commercialize”
How would you describe your sound?
Tell us about the video you recently shot for the song 'TV Date'.
It was a collaboration with the music video film director Davide Di Saro'. Just a simple setting and some great colours and lights. The team involved in making this video included, Ewa Chruscicka, Ryan Betts, Rodrigo Barraza, Owen Ellis, Johannah Jørgensen, Davide Di Saro' and Petroleum By-Product.
Name a song from the 80's that you like.
