WET NUNS - image from AlfitudeThis band have been knocking around this town and the surrounding areas or a while now but are finally getting the recognition they deserve from their sweaty live gigs to their gothy, gross music videos shot on none to hardly any budget. This gaining them a whole new bunch of followers as well as their die hard fans travelling to watch them shock and stun other cities and countries. With an EP release, their own festival under the belt and a trip to Austin, Texas to play at SXSW Festival, they are definitely paving a way into your nearest ear so be sure to keep up.
Impressive Line Up.
HOW LONG HAVE WET NUNS BEEN AROUND FOR NOW?
"Wet Nuns have been going for about 4 years now, but it's only taken off in the last couple of years. Since then we've become really busy and reached uncharted heights of silliness. It's really weird starting to get noticed and seeing people sing lyrics at us in places like Hastings or Dundee."
WHAT'S THE BEST GIG YOU'VE PLAYED SO FAR?
"We've played many great gigs, probably too many to mention.. Reading Festival was a personal highlight for me. The footage is up on youtube I think. It just seemed like the stupidest gig ever and we weren't sure what we were doing there. Our Sheffield gigs keep getting better, and the Detestival show last weekend is definitely one of the best."
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN FESTIVAL?
"The concept for Detestival came about one unbearably drunken night at Bestival. We basically decided that we could put on the best lineup ever, of bands that we love. We then got other people to organise it for us, and took all the credit."
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH HOW IT WENT AND THE BANDS YOU CHOSE FOR IT?
"We are so happy with how the weekend went. It surpassed all our expectations. All of the bands played better than we've ever seen them. At one point I found myself thinking 'Wow, I've loved every band that played this weekend' and then remembered that we'd chosen each act ourselves. It's the ultimate selfish act. Put on your own festival and your always going to enjoy it.."
WHAT ARE WET NUNS PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE?
"We're having a little break while Rob finishes Uni. Then after he's failed, we've got the festival season to conquer and an album to finish. We're planning some further Detestival events as well. The last one went far too well to wait another year for.."
