Derby death-surf trio Unqualified Nurse Band have shared the first track from their forthcoming second album Trashland. The record will be released digitally and on vinyl in October as a shared release between Reckless Yes and the band’s own label Medicine Music.
One year after the debut long player Debasement Tapes and just six months after the band charted with their Too Pure Singles Club release the band return with their second album this October, Trashland. A six-song thirty-four minute sprawl which once again pummels through the history of rock n roll, only this time the band aren’t holding back and have let the weird and wonderful seep into their consciousness giving everything a psych flourish.
Recorded at SNUG Recording Company in Derby by Rich Collins throughout June 2017 the first single and opening song from the album, Transplosion, is a link between the new and old. Punk rock chaos and the ambient outside world collide head on setting the tone for an LP which will explore every avenue of your electrified mind.
Across the LP the band traverse a number of musical styles without it ever feeling messy, from the jangle of ’60s pop through raucous punk this is an album to truly excite again, pushing forward while drawing from the past.
Having self-released their debut album after forming at the end of 2015 the band released their first album through local independent label Reckless Yes last October. They will next play Derby as support for Lightyear on the say Trashland is release, 20 October, before supporting the ska punks on their 20th anniversary tour of the UK.
With coverage in the national music press and on mainstream radio Unqualified Nurse Band are just one of the artists showing that Derby’s music scene is flourishing.
