Late 2002 vocalist Rainer Vasshaug was performing a local club in the sleepy snowy town of Harstad. In the audience was guitarist Jan Olav Isachsen, thinking “holy smoke, I need to start a band with this guy!”
The contact was made, and by spring 2003 Daisy Cutter was a fact of life.
Rehearsing and writing followed, and the EP “A Cure for the Common” was released early 2004. The EP was well received and includes the classic “Secure Settings”, still a favorite in local clubs and radio-stations.
Following the release the band focused on live gigs, playing more than 100 shows throughout Norway, including warm-ups for major Norwegian acts. This has led to a tighter, cooler, harder, raunchier show, reflected in new material and fan-favorites like “Q`s and B`s” and “Naked”.
The band has lately been focusing on writing even more songs, and is ripe with material for a new album and readier than ever to hit the saloons with their fresh sound and attitude. Daisy Cutter is often compared to known acts such as Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters and Audioslave. Still the band themselves get their influences from a much wider range of artists, including Nine Inch Nails, Led Zeppelin, A Perfect Circle and Smashing Pumpkins.
