How's the tour going?
"It's had many, many downs, mainly with equipment but
we've got away with it so far. I remember about a year and
a half ago we did a gig at the Falcon we were headlining and
we were supported by a band called Son of The Smith. They
had just signed a deal. They had equipment, money and stuff.
They had a truck full of flight cases, roadcrew and whatever
and we turned up with all this tatty equipment, carrying it
out ourselves from an old green van. Because we were headlining
we thought we could do without all that shit. So far we've
got away with it."
Haven't Nude given the band some money to go out and buy some
"They did but what the problem is that the equipment
we have sounds great when it works. It's just a bit temperamental.
I think virtually all of our equipment is fairly old and that's
how we like it."
This tour is a prelude to the album with the single 'Floodlit
World' out next week. How does Tiny feel about the album?
It seems Ultrasound has been around for a long time. New bands
seem to rush out with the first album. Ultrasound appear to
have taken they're time over it.
"I've noticed a lot of bands that sign a deal keep really
quiet while they record the album. Then they start to do all
the publicity. We got the publicity before we signed the deal
so we had to keep that momentum still going. We had to keep
playing and of course while you're playing you can't record."
If the record company asked Tiny to release this single, could
he blatantly refuse? >>
