Unqualified Nurse Band can’t stop writing future number 74 in the charts hits

New noise from Derby

Earlier this year, we brought you the first listen of ‘Death Surf A52’ – the 7″ single Derby outfit Unqualified Nurse Band released via the Too Pure Singles Club.

It went on to be a total smash – reaching the dizzy heights of 74 in the UK Physical Singles Chart (yeah, there’s still one of those).

Now, some news. They’ve made a new album. Their second. The follow-up to 2016’s ‘Debasement Tapes’. Six tracks, totalling 34 minutes. It’s called ‘Trashland’ and comes out on 20 October via Medicine Music/Reckless Yes Records.

Here’s the first track from it, ‘Transplosion’.

They’re going on tour in October, too, starting in their home town at The Hairy Dog on album release day. Book an appointment.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
