LATE NIGHT TALK WITH
MATTHAU MIKOJAN

Klubi / Tampere 2008



"You can`t play with your hand, you play with your dig"


Suiciderock: Could you tell us something about the first time when you had sex?
Matthau:
Actually I do remember. I was 15 years old and it happened with my first girlfriend. The father of my girlfriend was away, so we had a lot of time to enjoy ourselves at her place. We had sex in the kitchen, in the bathroom, everywhere. She was an older woman.

Suiciderock: And is there anything you absolutely don't like?
Matthau:
Not really. I´m very open minded when it comes to sex, but there are some things I don`t like. For example if somebody gets hurt or if somebody doesn´t like what you do to him or her. These two things turn me off. Besides that anything goes.

Suiciderock: Is there anything related to sex you prefer?
Matthau:
I like it when both are satisfied. It´s always something special for me. It is really important for me, that both are satisfied and happy. No violence should be involved.

Suiciderock: What´s sexy when it comes to a women?
Matthau:
Confidence is something I consider to be sexy. The way a woman moves and behaves. It doesn`t matter which size the woman has. It doesn´t matter what colour she has. It really doesn´t matter wheter she has blonde or black hair as long as you are confident with yourself. It´s very sexy when a woman enters the room and you can see her walking confidencly. That´s very sexy.

Suiciderock: What kind of underwear do you consider sexy when it comes to a women?
Matthau:
I`m a dirty guy. I would go to a porn store and I would buy something that is very dirty, but on the other hand I would buy something nice and need. I don`t know it depends on the woman.

Suiciderock: What kind of underwear are you wearing by yourself?
Matthau:
I wear my usual outfit and of course it comes off at some point. I like to wear leather, but you know it´s some kind of mind game. Everybody likes something else.

Suiciderock: Did you ever have sex with more than one women?
Matthau:
No never, but two guys and one woman. That´s what I have done. I´ve never had sex with two woman, but me and my friend, I don´t know if I can tell that, that will be published right? Anyway, two guys and one girl.

Suiciderock: Did you ever had sex with a man?
Matthau:
No never.

Suiciderock: Your opinion about porn?
Matthau:
I love it. Porn is entertaiment for me. When you see a porn movie on the internet and you see it as an educational thing, than you are wrong because it is not educational in any way. It is just entertaiment for women and men. But if you want to know how sex works this is not the right way to learn it, because it´s not related to real life. A lot of people think that sex works exactly like it does in the porn movies. It´s sad, but most of the guys see their first pussy on the internet. That´s very distracting. At least in my opinion, because it´s much more beautiful if you see a real pussy. It´s the same with digs. What I`m trying to tell you is that real sex is much more beautiful and sexy than this commerical sex. Every person is different and beautiful in his own way. There are large digs, small digs, ugly digs, and so on. We are all people.

Suiciderock: Could you imagine to do your own porn movie?
Matthau:
Could a guy who looks like this direct a porn movie? *laughs dirty* Not necessarily a porn movie, but in an erotic way. It would be very soft, erotic and with atmosphere.

Suiciderock: Would it have a special story?
Matthau:
No. I don`t need a special story. The only thing is to satisfy yourself, but if I would have to make a story out of it, I would make a very humaristic story for the movie.

Suiciderock: Can you seperate love and sex?
Matthau:
Absolutely. Old people told me that love and sex seperates itself later. Maybe if you are married for twenty years you have to seperate love and sex, but I`m not sure, because I`m still too young to know.

Suiciderock: I'm going to tell you some words and you tell me the first thing that comes to your mind. Sex toys?
Matthau:
The first thing I`m thinking about is a dildo. I´ve always have had dildos, all my life. You know I have a four years older brother. So it was no problem for me to get those stuff. I still can remember that I have this one green dildo, which was invented by Ville Valo and Stefan Lindfors. My first dildo was pink and I still have it. It is pink, very flexible and soft.
Suiciderock: For what do you need a dildo as a man?
Matthau: Just to please a woman. 


Suiciderock: Masturbating?
Matthau:
The first time must have been in kindergarten. I shared my first kiss with a girl, who´s name was Anna. She was sleeping above me in a bunk bed and every time when the kindergarten teacher told us to sleep, she bend down and we kissed each other. When I had my first orgasm I have been 6 years old.

Suiciderock: Romance?
Matthau:
Something that happened to me later. It was 1994 and I felt in love with my first girlfriend, who was many years older than me.

Suiciderock: One-Night-Stand?
Matthau:
It never has happened.

Suiciderock: Prostitution?
Matthau:
I never had to pay for sex. I do not have an opinion about that.

Suiciderock: What about Groupies, is it only a clichee?
Matthau:
Well, it´s something that still exists. I spend seven years with my first girlfriend and our relationship ended because of a groupie. It was just a one night stand. Oh now you got me. I was lieing some questions before, but actually it wasn`t a one night stand. There were many nights, but it came to an end anyway. It was many years ago.

Suiciderock: What is better: Sex or Rock`n Roll?
Matthau:
Sex. First comes the family, than what you are believing, than comes sex. By saying sex I mean everything that belongs to it, the whole package. And right after that comes Rock`n Roll. You can`t play with your hand, you play with your dig.

Suiciderock: Your advice to somebody who had never have sex before?
Matthau:
It depends if you are a woman or a man, because if a man turns 11 he is like „yeah I can have sex now!", but they are not ready. But a woman wants to feel secure. My advice is when both, female and male, are ready go for it as long as you remember to protect yourself. It´s really important, because a lot of people get killed.


...Matthau goes solo....


Suiciderock: There has happend a lot of new stuff in your life related to your job as a musician. You just shot your first video clip for your solo career.
Matthau:
Yeah, that´s true. We shot the video clip for the song „Too fortunate to cry" on 26th and 27th March.

Suiciderock: What is the clip about?
Matthau:
It is just a simple live video. We shot a few scenes at our rehearsal loft and the other day was just rockin`our socks of. It was a blast.

Suiciderock: Was it your idea?
Matthau:
Not really. I have been too busy to think about that stuff. So I told the director that he can do whatever he wants to do. I told him that he knows us and that he has a free hand. So we went to the set and we made a really stylish video.

Suiciderock: Who directed the clip?
Matthau:
Mikko. The video was shot by a group called Bodom Line Pictures.

Suiciderock: First it was a solo project, but now you have some steady musicians touring with you. What will it be like in the future?
Matthau:
I see it like this: When I started to record the album, it was only me. The first thing I needed was a drummer, a producer and a record company. I found a label and a producer. Than I started to call all my friends if they know a drummer for my studio sessions. So I found Simo. He is a great drummer. So I hired him. Next day Poko Records called me that I can do a tour. So I thought okay, but I need a band to play with me. For the bass I hired Teemu Broman. He is an experienced musician. I played with him in several bands before. At the same time I heard that Negative has fired Christus and I couldn`t believe it. I mean I have heard this many many times before, but than he called me and told me that he really got fired and I was like „okay put your own band together, because you are a great musician", but he was like „no, no, no I want to play with you". We were really discussing a lot about this. I told him, that I don`t buy it, because I have heard so many stories about this matter before. It didn`t happen unexpected. You know, if somebody leaves a band it never happens over night. Actually I spend one night thinking about that and after this sleepless night I called Christus and told him that he is welcome to the band.

Suiciderock: You´ve played one gig with Black Jezus. Will you join them more often?
Matthau:
I`m not a member of Black Jezus. I`ve played only one show with the guys. I almost had a heartattack, because of having too much stress. I broke down when I was visiting my mother. I was constantly running around the whole day. So it was just too much stress, but now I`m fine again.

Suiciderock: The record was produced at Cosmic Studios by Lex Luthor. What have the recordings been like?
Matthau:
It was great. I didn´t have so many things to worry about. I wanted to bring that Rolling Stones feeling back on the record, because the Rock`n Roll has been done in a very different way back in the 60`s or 70`s.
Suiciderock: How long did it take to produce the album?
Matthau:
Two month, but I recorded the tracks for like three weeks and the rest was left to Lex. Only two month and it was done.

Suiciderock: Your future plans?
Matthau:
I don`t have too many future plans. Actually right now I want to have sex, go to sauna, keep it relaxing, because it has been very stressfull.
