Get to Know: Nasa Assassin
Ejaculating forth from the primordial quagmire of the universal sonic egg, Nasa Assassin bring hope to the hopeless, faith to the faithless and audible abandonment to many.
Or so they say on their Facebook page. We will let you be the judge as we learn about space travellers that are Nasa Assassin. They have been around for a number of years and their live performances are memorable. Get to Know Nasa Assassin.
Members of band: Aidy Fudge, Bass, Jeff, Guitar, Rab McNabb, Drums, Stevie, Guitar & The Watcher on Vocals.
Where you’re from: Outer space, near Uranus… well, actually Dunmurry, Lisburn, Belfast and Carrickfergus – and that’s where the force merges!
Describe your music in five words: Expansive. Sci-Fi. Pedals. Fun. Sweaty.
Your main musical influences: Black Sabbath, Cypress Hill, Whitesnake, AC/DC, Hawkwind
Last gig you performed: Hilden Beer Festival, August 24th. Don’t go looking for it, it’s not there anymore (only joking).
Best ever show you’ve played: The next one! But the last few have been really good. We supported Trucker Diablo at the Pavilion in Belfast in August and I thought that was the best we’ve played live, but it’s hard to tell.
Last thing you do before going on stage: Large G&T, insert ear-plugs and start stop-watch… GO!
Band or musician you’d most compare yourself to: Well, to be honest if you like Faith No More you might like us. RATM… it’s that type of vibe, but a bit more spacey. I like to imagine we sound like Smashing Pumpkins (circa Siamese Dream / Mellon Collie) but maybe that’s wishful thinking ha-ha! Can we please sound like “Superunknown” by Soundgarden? Please?!
Weirdest thing that someone’s threw on stage: Flowers. Lots and lots of flowers. It was at Sunflowerfest a few years ago and it was very slippy onstage but hilarious. We love Sunflowerfest!
Playing to 100 friends or 1000 strangers: Either! Anything. Within reason…
Most looking forward to: Finishing our new album! Hopefully it will be out early next year.
Nasa Assassin will play at the Limelight Belfast on Saturday 15th September for The Distortion Project with Protex and Petty Youth. Doors open at 5pm.
