Hi guys, how are you?
Der Doctor: - "I'm actually fine, despite all my problems, but that is life. Shit is what you give, shit is what you get."
pAn: - "Just honky dory."

First of all, please tell us a bit more about Mommy Hurt My Head!
Der Doktor: - "It started out as a Neofolk project by me, but I lost all the music because of hard disc failure. Then four years later I got to talk with Abn pAn and Vomitus, and well, shit just happened."
pAn: - "Well, we wanted to do Industrial/EBM music the way we wanted it to sound like because nobody did it the way we liked it anymore and we really had a thing for that two vocalist kind of thing. We actually wanted to be a Modern/Old-School/Industrial-kind-of-Simon-and-Garfunkel kind of a band, but luckily it didn't quite turn out that way."

You have just released your debut album; tell us a bit more about it.
Der Doktor: - "It took four fucking years!"
pAn: - "Yeah, it was a real drag. We had a rough period, allot of stuff happened and everything sort of got lost in the bunker."

You where signed to Progress Production in 2007, how come your first release did not turn up until now?
Der Doktor: - "It not that easy, because we couldn't find our sound and then we have families, jobs, children and mental problems to deal with too."
pAn: - "Well, we wanted to do it the way we liked it, and it took some time to figure out what that exactly was."

With all the live shows you had with Leatherstrip, might we see any collaboration coming up perhaps?
Der Doktor: - "That would be a dream for me. Claus is a really good friend, but we never talked about that."
pAn: - "It would be absolutely fine by me, Claus have made some of the greatest synthesizer based aggressive music that have ever been made. It would be an honour to create a track with him. It could only become a killer track."

You recently had a gig here in Gothenburg at Club Target, how was it?
Der Doktor: - "It was okay. Nice people, the svenska jävlarna ("the Swedish Bastards" - editors note), but still the scene suffers from the lack of interest in the music, not the clothes."
pAn: - "It was great! Cool people and a very good atmosphere. We had a blast."

How did you come in contact with Progress Productions? Did they found you or did you find them?
Der Doktor: - "Me and Torny (label manager - editors note) go way back, like 1997 or so. But I helped arrange a Necro Facility concert and played a couple of tracks later that year. That was how it was done."

With your clear 90's EBM influences, you must have some favourite track from that era. What song would you like to remix the most?
Der Doktor: - "Psychopomp's "Addict" or "God shit"."
pAn: - "Klute's "Nose Candy" or "I wanna fuck now"."

Any last words to our readers?
Der Doktor: - "Keep the taps flowing and to hell with any bullshit... and always to the green guy."
pAn: - "Demand colours, its not the other way around."
