Anathema, Alcest and Mamiffer at Gramercy Theater, NYC on September 14th, 2013
There was time when it was easy to hate everything about Ugly Kid Joe. Bursting onto the scene back in 1991 like an obnoxious teenager at a back yard party, their chart-bothering singles and surfer-bum image made them easy to dismiss. However, what lay beneath the hype was a kick-ass rock band who had the tunes to match. Anyone who needed further proof only had to witness the band live, such as on their last run of UK dates back in 2013 where they wiped the floor with touring partners Skid Row.
Inglorious lead singer Nathan James joins us in the room during the interview. When asked for words of advice for Mason Hill, he pauses for a moment and simply smiles and states “Don’t Be Shit”. With a laugh he’s gone again. So lads….. no pressure then?
