Why this name?
It is the shortened version of the Latin "illegitimis nil carborundum", meaning "don't let the bastards grind you down". Our lyrics scream and shout in protest at those who bully and control - politics, religion, and general disrespecting scum - so you don't have to.
Do you play live?
From 2007 to 2009, Nil Carborundum were showing their faces in venues fairly regularly, 99% of the time in Leeds but with the occasional gig booked elsewhere around Yorkshire. It's a shame we had to take a break because gigging is always a great experience. People have told us we are the tightest backing-track band they have heard, and we were once applauded during soundcheck with people asking bewildered how we keep in time! But as we usually only play with pre-arranged backing-tracks from a laptop, I'd have to say my favourite gig was when we had a live drummer when we supported Hecate Enthroned. He was doing us a favour for the one gig, but it's a shame he couldn't stay with us, good drummers are very busy people!
