Maria Nuccilli: [I play with] Outrageous Cherry, and Deadbeat Beat. I’m also playing as Neurosmut, a new experimental project with Johanna Berger (formerly of the Decks), Neil Laperriere (Deadbeat Beat) and sometimes Alex Glendening (Deadbeat Beat, Twine Time). I’m also starting a new project with Richie from Lo & Behold called the Belle Isles. In addition to all of that, I have a solo side project called Mountain Time that released its first album on Gold Tapes last year. I grew up playing in multiple bands, so it’s pretty much what I’m used to. It works because we all are courteous of each other’s schedules and commitments, and because we all just genuinely enjoy playing music together. The nice thing about playing with multiple projects is that one band can fill out creative gaps when another band is laying low.
