We were ready to record or second Ep, when our bass player decided to leave. We won’t let 2004 pass by without Land$lide Ladie$ had the chance to leave their trace, but we need to look for a new guy, so we were kind of stuck. The band was there but we where broke and in need of rehearsals, lazy Italian motherfuckers. Me and Mr.Gold ( the only two original members left ) decided that it could be fun just to sit and play as when we write songs. In 2 evenings we recorded as natural and honest as possible and the fruits of those sessions are the songs you can find on the Ep.
You sound less “hair metal” than most Italian glam bands, is there any other band in your style there?
Italian Glam oriented underground scene… it’s like a big self service where you could get what you want from Cock Rock to Glam Core from Hair Spray Punk to Speed Glam. Personally I think there’s a bunch of cool bands down here. Everyone is influenced by glam and glitter but everyone have something to say ‘in their very own chords’, able to propose their influences in an original and personal way, some of them: Thee S.T.P., Crackhouse, Bastet, Hollywood Killerz, Jany James & The Bandits, Decadenza, Pouty Lips, Babyruth, Lovin Doll$, Fuori Uso, Latexx Teens, Zap…
How have your shows been so far? Any anecdote, good or bad memories?
Pretty cool actually, we’re not great musicians and we don’t care about it, we try to give people a good time mixing glitter to proto-punk attitude. We do the same old stuff sweat, shout, jump, fall off the stage, get drunk, do a lot of that cheesy choruses. Anecdotes? too many to mention one in particular: I remember playing with 38 temperature under a mix of alcohol and pain killers kind of scary, get naked in a little club in the country side, while singing ?Anyway you want me, anyway you dream of me!? never though someone could have such horrible dreams?
Choose one (and explain why):
-AC/DC or KISS? Kiss especially the Alive! period they were just unbelievable, they looked like 4 super rnr heros out one of that Marvel comics and the music was so genuine ( no Ezrin bullshit ), so cool, so catchy but at the same time so hard. My bedroom it?s still full of posters, photos and memorabilia stuff from them!
We’re trying to realize a Split Cd with one of the coolest band in Europe, but my lips are sealed sorry!
Anything else to add for our readers?
