Band Info


Their distinctive sound was first forged in small town Northern Ireland in 1989: three young men in a dingy rehearsal room, heads down, eyes closed, lost in music, locked into a groove: a fractured dance beat, a prowling bass line, whirring, whining guitar, distorted vocals spitting alienation and desolation through an overloaded PA. It's a sound that quickly garnered Andy Cairns (Guitar, Vocals), Michael McKeegan (Bass) and Fyfe Ewing (Drums) a record deal with respected London label Wiija, a partnership that resulted in two corrosive, bellicose mini albums 'Babyteeth' (1991) and 'Pleasure Death' (1992) before the band's departure for A&M Records. 1993's 'Nurse' album spawned the trio's first UK Top 30 single in speed-freak anthem 'Teethgrinder', but it was with the following year's 'Troublegum' that Therapy? truly hit commercial pay dirt. Featuring the hit singles 'Screamager' (from 1993's 'Shortsharpshock' EP), 'Turn' (from the 'Face The Strange' EP), 'Nowhere', 'Die Laughing' and 'Trigger Inside', the album quickly racked up sales of 750,000 worldwide. Seeing the 'crossover' potential of the band's stripped down punk-metal, critics began talking up the band as "the new Metallica"…much to the trio's amusement.
