NIGHT NOISE TEAM/EDINBURGH/DISCO ROCK
If you’re a fan of _ and _ then you will like Night Noise Team. Fill in the blanks.
(Sean Ormsby): Earth, Wind and Fire and paddling in the sea.
Why should people take the time to listen to you?
Our recordings are honed and teased out by a Parisian sound wizard called Fabien. He’s an artist. Gigs are a melodic assault on all the senses apart from touch. But that can be arranged.
Night Noise Team could sound a little dodgy. What exactly is night noise?
The high lonesome sound of a coyote on your back green;most kinds of fucking.
If Night Noise Team could have a motto, what would it be?
There are many rooms in the mansion of pop…
How important is pop music in the musical world?
Ehh…depends who you’re talking to. It’s important to us, maybe giving access to other so-called genres. Good pop’s always been a bastardised form of all kinds of influences and therefore startling. It encourages reinvention and we aim for each recording to be discrete. A listen to our album and singles so far will confirm this.
You got onto the T Break stage at T In The Park. Was this particularly pleasing for the band?
In terms of the numbers game, definitely: 16 bands from 1400 are usually piss-poor odds! It’s a rare chance to up the profile in a oner which is valuable because there’s at least 100,000 bands in Leith alone.
Do people actually still look at your MySpace page, or is Facebook the way forward?
MySpace peaks and troughs mysteriously. Facebook seems more direct and less spammy from what I can gather.
And finally, Fern Britton or Judy Finnigan?
Finnigan’s Wake….Fearne Cotton!
