So yesterday before the Life Trap/Male Nurses/Spanish Candles/Kintaro show, we were hanging out with the Bostonian punks and figured: You know what bands love to do before playing a show? Get interviewed by some kids! We sat down with them and shared some words, but we didn’t have a recorder or anything so this transcription is basically from memory. They probably didn’t say any of this at all. Anyways….
Nashville’s Dead: Male Nurses, huh?
Male Nurses: You got it.
From Boston, MA?
From Boston, MA.
You know, Nashville’s hardcore scene is really not as strong as it used to be. I mean, most of the “hardcore” bands here are just metal. Not really hardcore.
What’s it like there?
Phenomenal. Boston’s better than every other city. Boston’s the best. Yeah, Boston’s doing relatively well these days. [please realize this is an interview with ALL of them]
Cool, well, what other bands do you guys like?
Actually, Boston has a lot of bands going right now. There’s a wave of bands right now that have defunct and started up new bands. Like Scapegoat.
Scapegoat rules. How long have you guys been around?
Year and half. Year abouts.
Were you guys friends before starting the band or did you just meet through the “scene”?
Yeah, pretty much all friends. We met PJ and Ryan (who couldnâ€™t be here because he flew back home yesterday on a plane for some reason) through the â€œsceneâ€. Weâ€™ve been in bands before and stuff
Is this the first tour for Male Nurses?
What other cities have you guys hit?
We’ve play cities in Connecticut, Brooklyn, Albany. This tour, we started out in Brooklyn and got there too late. We decided to play darts and played too long and got there to the show too late. We treid to pickup some chicks from France and got pretty close. We went to Philly and stayed at Tonioâ€™s parents and his mom found about his Flipper tattoo and freaked out. We pretty much based the tour around Tonio getting circumcised; as a gift to him that his parents didnâ€™t give him. We played a Philly show with like 3 bands, this band Daily Void who are really big. They served some Schmidt at the bar. It’s some obscure beer. Then we went back to Tonioâ€™s abode and his mom made us pancakes and because of that we were late for our show in Roanoke. And we were all busy beating off so, you know. Tonioâ€™s up to 11 now, and PJ is in second.
Real inside scoop here.
Guess so. After Roanoke, we ventured off into the abyss of Asheville. There were some people who promised us acid and didnâ€™t give it to us.
Asheville is hippy central. How many white people with dreds did you see?
A ton. Like 14 or 15.
Yeah. Have you guys got any recordings out?
We’ve got a demo tape out and we plan to record as soon as we get back form tour on Deranged Records. Name drop.
Yeah, we’ll be sure to link to that.
Weâ€™re based in America.
Weâ€™ve taken two nude photos. One in front of a waterfall and the other in front of a beautiful landscape in Tennessee. There were a few cars parked there and they all left. Scared of our penises. Cowards. â€œIâ€™ve never seen a bigger coward in my life.â€ Put that in there in quotations.
Will do. Yeah, STSCy told us all about you guys.
Cy, good man. Yeah, we’re looking forward to playing with Life Trap and the other bands on the roster.
