RRUK: Let’s start with your band name, what made you choose it for this project?

I liked Naked City’s album called; Torture, said the pain, Nurse will people quiet, but there are two words contain the double meaning of pain and joy.

RRUK: How would you describe your sound and working process?

We passed a lot of different attempts, the present, the main effects of various sources and the use of on-site meetings more physical performances, the album would be relatively diverse effects of the collision may also be the sound of screaming people, Or is the background noise recording, sound more likely to be direct to sex.

RRUK: About the instruments and technology you use to produce the sound, do you constantly update them, or are old and cheap synths and the like still good for your purposes?

We will at different times with some different equipment, you two mentioned above are applicable to Torturing Nurse


RRUK: With regards to electronic/experimental artists, which band did you discover first? How did you come across them?

I am deeply touched by the first is Hijokaidan from Japan, very coincidentally heard in a one japanese comp, then get out of control through the network of underground noise into the real world.

RRUK: Who or what influences you and your sound?

They are Hijokaidan、Incapacitants、The Gerogerigegege、K2、The Haters、Prurient,ect,Disorderly chaotic sound fascinated me.

RRUK: What is your opinion in particular of Power Electronics, Noise, and Japanoise, looking at their main artists like Merzbow, Masonna?


I was deeply affected by the Japanoise, but now the new U.S. and European power-electronics/noise Some of these are also very fond of the Japanoise more “human” feeling in there, so it Naiting.


RRUK: Are you interested in serial killers? Do you think they are a typical product of 20th century society, and what is your opinion about in particular American “serial killer culture” ?

To be honest not interested in the relationship between cultural background, I am more concerned about such people in China, how kind of society there is this one, I do not sing the praises for them, but they actually do some of us Many people dare not do.

RRUK: If you could perform live anywhere in the world… where would it be?

Japan and Usa.


RRUK: With regards to other sound projects the sound projects, is there any country in particular that inspire you more than others?

I prefer the Japanoise artist, it may belong to the same reason in Asia.

RRUK: Do you listen to different types of music? A secret Elvis collection perhaps?!

I like harsh noise、power electronics、free improvisation and some old pop music.

RRUK: What first, chicken or the egg?


RRUK: Thanks for your time, Junky & Jouki.
