AUDREY NUGENT, vocalist and guitarist with THE ALICE BAND talks to BILLY SCANLAN
An Irish woman, a Scottish woman and an American woman walk into a bar. They have a few drinks and then they form The Alice Band, BOOM BOOM! Thankfully, Charity Hair (from Florida), Amy Lindhop (from Glasgow) and Audrey Nugent (from Dublin) are better at making music and singing than I am at making jokes.
Still though, it’s not far from the truth. They all met up in a bar and clicked over a few pints and thus The Alice Band was born. “It was a great meeting of minds after a few drinks as you can imagine,” says Audrey after I had asked her how the band formed. I chicken out of telling my new joke.
On hearing that there are three women in a band who can play and sing, a lot of people will already have their minds made up: female angst. You wont find much of that here though. If The Alice Band want to kill their boyfriends (Ash would loose a lead vocalist for a start), they are keeping it to themselves.
