About: Silent Nation , very interesting quartet from Birmingham
after several four stringers attempted to take the mantle they took Paul Brooks on board as Bassist, and after several people passed through to audition vox, the threesome settled on the rough, hard edged tones of Dodge Turner. Regularly compared with the likes of the Foo Fighters, RATM, Audioslave, Soundgarden, now, in 2011 and raring to go, they have a sound that is a force to be reckoned with."
1). How does autumn influence your music?
1) We like to write stuff that will keep people warm heading into the winter (especially when you are playing outside in sub zero temperatures like we did last year!)
2). What book or movie has influenced your creative work the most?
As with all rock bands, the biggest movie influence on us is Spinal tap. that film was based around fact!
3). Do you perform cover songs at your shows? If yes, what songs?
We have covered songs in the past, the main two being Muse' Plug in baby and Nirvana's breed (the latter went down very well!)
4). Were you good in school? Do you miss your school years?
Ian, our guitarist, and Rob, our drummer were very good at school, the other half, Dodge and Brooksy, were not.... ;)
5). Would you like to be a superhero? What superpowers would you like to have and why?
I wouldnt like to be a superhero, though if i had to choose one it would be Robin, Batmans sidekick. Understated, off the radar but very good at what he does...
