CMU Daily

CMU Daily have been giving The Good The Bad some love in in their daily bulletin, asking Adam the 'Same Six Questions' about The New School Surf & Flamenco leading up to tomorrow's EP Launch Party at Whoreditch. Here's the full article and interview:

The Good The Bad come fast and hard out of Denmark with a noisy mix of surf rock and flamenco. There's no space for vocals, so they don't have any. Just two guitars, some drums and a dangerous amount of pent up energy. The band release their debut EP 'From 001-004' via Stray Cat Records on 16 Nov. But this is a band who must be seen live. Not should: Must. So, you'd do well to get yourself down to Whoreditch at The Brickhouse in east London tomorrow night to check them out. Before that, check out this little interview with lead guitarist Adam Olsson.

(Q1) How did you start out making music?
When I started playing guitar, I quickly found out that I was not very good playing cover music. So I was forced to compose my own music in order to find it fun to play.

(Q2) What inspired your latest album?
It's inspired by an intense energy, like sex.

(Q3) What process do you go through in creating a track?
I need a guitar and a recorder, then I just wait until a riff or a melody comes out. I do not know where it comes from, but as long as there is something coming I am happy. It is actually the most satisfying part of the whole process as a musician, to have composed a piece of music.

(Q4) Which artists influence your work?
The bands and the energy that there was going on in the 1960s is a big influence. And then the old spaghetti westerns.

(Q5) What would you say to someone experiencing your music for the first time?
I would give them a link to and then talk about the weather.

(Q6) What are your ambitions for your latest album, and for the future?
There is nothing that is too big or unthinkable for us. We know that everything and nothing can happen in this business, but until now things have gone pretty well, so we just gonna do what we have always done. Play music like no one else.
