NO RADICAL CHANGE OPENING THERAPY?’S LIVE CONCERT!

Interview with the Italian band’s singer



A young band rarely happens to move in less than one year from deciding to play together to opening one of the coolest European rock bands’ show. It happened, not by chance, to No Radical Change from Livorno (Italy), who opened Therapy?’s live show, at Auditorium Flog in Florence, on November 15th.We are particularly proud to say ‘not by chance’, because No Radical Change were discovered by Emergenza! So first of all we want to congratulate the band: thanks to its bright performance in the Rothenburg International Final this summer (third position equal to Spanish band La Suite Mosquito), they proved themselves to have what it takes to become a leading band. Then, time came for the B.E.S.T. of Emergenza in several Italian cities, Barcelona and Paris, and for the big Florence event.We want to hear from Orso’s, No Radical Change’s singer, where the great adventure with Emergenza is taking them. You have just come back from a long music marathon, and from some very important professional experience. Yes, actually we have never stopped since the Taubertal International Final, which was really a dream coming true. Then came the B.E.S.T. nights, in Italy, Spain and France, where we had the chance to play again with groups we met in Germany last summer, besides ones who stood out in the past years… and then there was the Therapy’s concert opening, of course! Tell us something more about this concert. Every detail of our show was under control: we worked a lot on it before the International Final, and in Florence we played the same songs we performed in Taubertal, plus one more. It was a very exciting night, and we learned a lot from it. A band which has ten albums and lots of live concerts in its’ credit can teach you a lot about being on stage, catching the audience and creating a good relationship with it. By the way, we also were impressed by the German band Emil Bulls, with whom we played in Paris: they are gorgeous on stage, they really deserve all their success.No Radical Change is a very young band, but lots of interesting and unexpectd opportunities are happening. Is all this influencing your way of creating and playing music? Every member of the band came from several experiences when No Radical Change were born, less than one year ago, and what happened later has undoubtedly made us grow up. But the way we create and play music has not really changed. By playing with bands like Therapy? and Emil Bulls, we understood that there is no substantial difference between signed bands and the ones who work really hard to obtain a professional deal… maybe one difference is the time pressure: luckily on our behalf we have a great producer, but right now we are not really under pressure.During the B.E.S.T. nights we could appreciate the bands’ and organisation’s professionalism, that let everyone do its real best. Which was the most exciting moment in all the Emergenza experience? No doubt it was the Taubertal International Final. After we won the final round in Florence, the two months that separated us from the big event seemed to be never-ending. When we finally got to Germany, everything was just like we had imagined: an enormous stage, a thorough organization, an audience every musician dreams of (17,000 people!), the very best bands. That was a real surge of adrenalin! All we had to do was to show our best. We were so happy to play with very expert bands like La Suite Mosquito (they have played together for eight years, and you can feel it), Nervous Nellie, who are really gorgeous, and Klem from France, whom we met again in Paris: they are really impressive from a technical point of view. Has your audience changed in the last months? Yes, it has. It is far larger than it was in the first Emergenza nights, because since then we had the chance to play in front of lots of people who did not know us. Now our fan base is growing increasingly, thanks also to word-of-mouth advertising.
