MOZ: Tell us something about the band?
N&TBB: We’re Nikk & The Bad Boys, we come from Mestre, near Venice , Italy.
This band was born from me ( Nikk Reds) and Pietro M Rock Zanetti, our plan is to mix the punk of ’77 and the rockabilly from 50’s.
With those two music styles, we try to do our print.
But we prefer talk about attitude, not music style,because attitude comes from yourself, music style already exist,so we call our attitude Punkabilly but you can call us as you prefer(laughts)hahaha.
MOZ: What about the lyrics?
N&TBB: I write the root of the lyrics, then we work modelling the rythm, the structure until we find the best result.
MOZ: Are you satisfied with your last album? or you would have liked to change something?
N&TBB: That’s a good question, we made a year ago a EP with four songs really bad played and recorded so, we hope to see this end of 2019 our new vynil out ,we’re so excited and ready to play.
MOZ: How much is really important the stage ?
N&TBB: The stage is the fourth essence of wellness for me, but for each person represent a way to enjoy the show, for me is a moment of praying for example, I go on a psycho-trans that makes me live the moment in slow motion.
MOZ: Do you think that Internet is important for music industry ?
N&TBB: Internet is really important but only if you know how to use it. Now if you want show to someone your works, your live show, your music, you’ll go on internet, you’ll never find someone that told you “come to my house I got my CD’s on the garage”, it’s immediate and easy.
But at the same time my generation (I’m 24) lost the passion for the quality and the objects that represented the music in all these years.
MOZ: How is the scene underground on your country ?
N&TBB: It’s realy confused, there’s so much people that do really good products , people who play really well and works from a lot of times, but before or after, do music for passion, because in our country music is not a work, is a hobby, a passion, but not a work.So many people that don’t have the possibility to do another work and play,
leave the music as hobby and resigns him/her self.But not all musicians luckly, we’re fighters!!
MOZ: What the plans for the immediate future ?
N&TBB: Start gig around the Italy and outside too, with new album and kick ass everywhere.That’s all hahaha!
MOZ: That’s all!! greeted our readers with a message!
N&TBB: Hi guys! Thanks to MUSICONLINEZINE, Ghost Record Label and every person that love music and keep support underground music!!!
