Gu Medicine Interview - 2005



1. How did the band first meet each other?
Me and Pete (drums) were in another band together( Sunlounger) when we felt it was over we both agreed that that was it with music, **** it....we'd had enough! (eeek!) but Ryan (bass, and guitar/ vox with metal outfit P>S>P) had other ideas and during a very booze fuelled conversation one night, a jam with his buddy Dale (lead and now our buddy) was arranged....at that first rehearsal we penned 'edge of no control' and thought hey! this ****ing rocks! > >

2. What bands were your greatest influences?
this is a toughie for me to answer alone considering there's another 3 members of the band....but if I was to stick my neck out and say the most common thread running through our tastes, it would be Fu Manchu, QOTSA and early foo's....but that said AC/DC are my main insperation when song writing.... ie striving for the perfect infectious hook laden groove etc and live.... the intensity of Killing Joke live circa 1991 when they toured the 'Extremities' album....but of cousre I'm speaking for myself....others may tell you different! but that said **** em....I'm the boss lol > >

3. When did you start playing an instrument and what was it?
I started playing guitar at 13 and had formed a band by 13 and 1/2...I only knew 3 chords but I was like '**** it!.... I ain't gonna be the best guitarist in the world so lets start writing some tunes' > >

4. What was the bands most memorable gig to date?
probably the recent tour with Open Hand we had a ****ing gas! They truly are very nice people and an awesome band. The fact that they, on the whole, come from Beverly hills and have very wealthy parents and we are 4 rough ****ers from Barnsley without a brass razzoo to rub together made for some interesting hours of conversation > >

5. What do you do to relax on tour?
relax?????????? you're ****ting me.....if we can get home in between gigs and work the next day then that's what we do......Gig-work-gig-work-gig....not ideal but the bills have to be paid! In some respect we're fortunate living in the middle of the country......we'd be ****ed if we came from say Brighton.....every show is an away game....lololol > >

6. Which country would you like to spend time gigging in?
this ****er is easy......The USA.... it's an ambition fast becoming an obsession....ok we might struggle to get home and work in between gigs but Hey! **** it I'll throw a sicky to play in L.A > >

7. What is your favourite song of all time?
It'd be the stars on 45 version of 'love like Blood' Killing Joke/ ace of spades' Motorhead 'Hurt' by Johnny Cash finishing off with 'Touch Too much' AC/DC > >

8. Have you any new releases lined up for 2005?
we're working on the next album right now.....it's gonna be ****ing awsome, it sounds immense but it'll not surface till early 2006 I'm told..... > >

9. What is the bands ideal goal?
To keep rocking and striving to write a song that'd have been good enough for inclusion on 'Highway to Hell' > >

10. What equipment (manufacturer) does each band member currently use?
this may come as a suprise but the amps are Marshall....bass stuff is Ampeg/tech 22 drums ....hmmmm!....**** I don't know.....blue things that get hit...Cymbals....hmmmm.....gold things that get hit!!...dale's guitar is Gibson.....mine isn't..... > >


11. Who has the worst habit?
don't know if it's a bad habit, but Dale simply can't pass a service station without buying some porn....!
