us a short introduction of yourself to start this interview with?
Hi we are the
Nosebleed Connection, we formed in 2001 and we are currently promoting our
third album “Nosebleeders”.
Each musician has an idol for the influence.
Who was your I-wanna-be-like-this-star? And try to explain what made him/her
our opinion, having an idol means to feel yourself as inferior to someone or
something, that’s why we can’t say we have got an “idol” but just bands we grew
up with and we are inspired by.
the album review you are typed as hardcore crossover. Do you agree and what is
the charm of playing this kind of music?
music we play nowadays is a mix of hardcore and metal (“crossover”, as it used
to be called during the 90’s) but we are a band open to changes, so we’ll see
the album cover we see faces of people, some known some unknown. Mostly
criminals to society, but where is Berlusconi? And why Mike Tyson?
the album cover there are all people that can be defined as “nosebleeders” for
making other people bleed (one way or another..), and some of them even
inspired our songs (as James Warren
Jones did in the song “Jonestown”).
appears on the limited edition digipack’s cover: how could it be complete
without the “king of Bunga Bunga”?
bands are making social statements in the lyrics? What are the major mistakes
society make these days? And what do you do to
make it better?
think 90% of the hardcore bands feel they have to deal with some specific
topics in their lycris. According to me, we all should keep in mind that money isen’t more important than other things in life: I know it could sound banal,
but sometimes true things do sound banal.
playing live, do you want the audience to have a good time or do you also try
to make them aware of the bullshit society these days?
of the biggest advantages of being on a stage is the opportunity to send a
message to the audience: we strongly believe communication is fundamental for
people who make music, not only musical communication, but every kind of.
you recall what the best live show was that you did? Why was it the most
notorious one and are there any spectaculaire stories of the after show?
remember when we played in a squat in Turin, we became friends with the members
of a local hardcore band called “Killjoy”. The gig was great, don’t ask me to
enter into details about what happened after the gig... but we really had fun
playing in a band doesn't pay the bills, what are doing outside the music
wish I could pay the bills by playing in a band. Of course we all have a job to make out a living, but what we do is far from the music scene.
us your solution for the world crisis we are all in? Don't say printing more
money but THE solution.
I had the solution I wouldn’t stand idly by!
am going to Italy in the summer. Recomment some food I should try?
some Carbonara in Rome, some Chianina in Florence and an Amarone fo
Valpolicella in Verona.
stories will you tell your grandkids one day?
would tell them about the great experience I had playing in a band I’ve always
been proud of and I would try to teach them how much important determination is
if you are keen on something or if you have a dream.
else you want to share that we should know?
We’re always looking for tour dates! A word to the wise...
