Hi we are Mad Nurse from Edinburgh. we are Tom, Andy & Colin
How would you describe the music you make?
Long-brooding-noisy-quiet-atmospheric-noisy-brooding-long. If you like Mogwai, My Bloody Valentine, Arab Strap, Talk Talk, Sonic Youth, Smog & Interpol then you will think were nae bad. We just released our 2nd Ep 'The Rip' which you can get from bandcamp and listen to on soundcloud, so please have a listen.
How did you start out making music?
The usual gumtree ad way. started with me (Colin) and powerhouse skin pounder drummer Tom for about a year and half then added bass and producer extraordinaire Andy just over a year ago. we keep it tight.
What process goes into the way you write songs?
Most songs are written by me and then taken to rehearsals for the other two to shape and pull apart as necessary. recently we have written a few songs from us jamming, one which is a enormous loud beast which is usually our closing song at the moment. have so many ideas and demos flying around its hard to choose which is the good ones. my process of writing usually involves two different bits of music Ive written that are glued/forced together as im really creative/lazy.
What can people expect from your live shows?
Three sweaty beasts on stage, face melting guitar, pounding frantic drumming and a bass that's tuned to guarantee you health problems later in life. It's loud, fast and not very pretty. it may repulse you. we hope it does.
What are you all listening to at the moment?
The Knife, Mark Kozelek, Busta Rhymes, Rhye, Baroness, Kid Cudi, RJD2
What can we expect to see/hear from you in the future?
You can see and and hear us next month in gigs at Bannermans (Edinburgh 3rd June), Box (Glasgow 8th June) & Henrys Cellar Bar (Edinburgh 29th June). And sorry to plug it again, you can hear us on our EP 'The Rip'. Many months of hard work and a record were very proud of. you'll just love it.
