Mister Niceguy Interview
What are the names of your members?
Our names are John Lloyd Jr and Ben Albiston to government officials and Mister Niceguy to you.
When did you all get together?
It's all in the blood, we are cousins who swam from the same gene pool so there wasn't much getting together to be had.
We have morphed into 'MNG' over the period of good few years exploring what we want to do in various projects.
How did you all meet?
The earliest interaction between the two of us can be traced back to one of us throwing up on the other (photographic evidence is out there somewhere)
Truth be told we've been throwing up on eachother ever since and sometimes we remember to press record.
How would you describe your music?
An amalgamation of everything that we've ever thought, felt and heard processed subconsciously, spat out through some
musical equipment (set to heavy) and mixed to fuck and back.
Who are your Major Influences?
It's typical to hate this question but I'm sure people will hear varied influences in our music.
It is a struggle to answer without simply listing dozens of bands/artists that we listen to but I'd say we're influenced by anything that prompts a reaction in either of us. Be it music, film, art, conversation, confrontation etc.
Complete the sentence: One day as a band we hope to....
...Finally get that heated swimming pool.
In fact we'd like Mister Niceguy to continue it's role as a journey without a particular destination whilst making our music available to as many people as possible and playing live wherever they'll have us.
Why should people listen to your music?
Because we're in talks with the men upstairs to make it illegal not to.
What are your plans for the upcoming year?
Gig, gig and gig again.
We're just getting sorting through our ginormous idea bag and getting ready to record and release a new E.P .
If all goes to plan we'll be releaseing 4 e.ps as well as some exclusive downloads this year.
In fact we might even come round to your house, make your tea, wash the pots and tuck you in. For a small fee via paypal of course.
What albums/e.p's have you released and where can we get them?
We currently have 'Ordeal of the Ritual' Available as a free download. It's a six tracker. We love the songs. We think you'll dig it.
You can download for our Facebook or directly from soundcloud at the link below.
Finally, say something profound.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.
Actually we quoted that but same difference right?
Mister Niceguy have added a live bass player (Mark Jones formely of Manchester Based Groove metal band Eysaw) to their ranks and are in the process of putting together some new material - we'll be checking it out as soon as it's ready so be sure to keep an eye out!
