‘NO CONTROL’ was recorded and produced by JONATHON JACOBS at Ventura
soundhouse productions (who has worked with the likes of STEVE HARLEY,
KT TUNSTALL, RICKY WILSON, singer of the KAISER CHIEFS, ROBIN MILLAR).
HEALTHY JUNKIES draw on iconic musical influences from the 70s and 90s
and and drag them kicking and screaming into the now. They are a homage
to Psychedelic Rock/Punk Rock and Grunge of days gone by but do it with
a fresh, modern twist. The song is already getting championed and played
in the USA by legendary DJ RODNEY BINGENHEIMER and in the UK SHELL
ZENNER of AMAZING RADIO and ANDY COUSINS (ALL ABOUT EVE, THE MISSION) on
While the initial theme of ‘NO CONTROL’ focuses on standing up for your
rights, not being pushed around and not being judged for who you are it
also contains a spoken word damnation of the current state and attitude
of the medical profession towards mental health which has now reached
epidemic proportions. Let’s prioritise dealing with the cause as well
as the symptom!
HEALTHY JUNKIES continue to travel the length and breadth of the UK
playing shows to their dedicated and growing following and will be
touring Ireland, Europe and the West coast of the USA later this year.
HEALTHY JUNKIES is:
Nina Courson – Lead vocals
Phil Honey-Jones – Guitar/Vocals
Dave Whitmore – Bass guitar
Pumpy – Drums
HEALTHY JUNKIES founder members NINA COURSON and PHIL HONEY-JONES played
their first gig together in late 2010 supporting GOLDBLADE at a
disastrous punk festival in Brighton where the promoter ran off with the
money. Undeterred they continued to play shows nationally and in Europe
including the mighty REBELLION FESTIVAL, BLACKPOOL, THE WHITBY GOTH
FESTIVAL and THE CAMDEN ROCKS FESTIVAL and supports to bands such as THE
UK SUBS, THE PROFESSIONALS, GBH, THE REZILLOS and THEATRE OF HATE.
HEALTHY JUNKIES gathered momentum, building an audience and crafting
their sound all the while. With 3 studio albums (2 of them on Manchester
based STP Records) and 2 EPs under their belt Healthy Junkies have just
finished mixing a fourth album.
