Take It Easy Hospital is a currently London based duo from Iran. Formed by singer/producer Ash Koosha also known as Ashkan Kooshanejad and singer/songwriter Negar Shaghaghi in Tehran, the duo has been playing as an underground group from Iran since 2009. Ash Koosha is also the lead guitarist and song writer of FONT, a four piece rock band formed in 2004 that was later sentenced to prison for 21 days in august 2007 for performing in an underground rock concert in Tehran suburb.
The two starred in the award-winning fiction-documentary film No One Knows About Persian Cats by Iranian director Bahman Ghobadi in 2009. The film which was made without a permit follows their story trying to find live members to play in some festivals in the UK. Due to the film’s success and the post election turmoil during the summer of 2009 in Iran, Kooshanejad, Shaghaghi and Ghobadi were forced to ask for asylum and have not been able to return since.
The song “Me and You” is taken from “No One Knows About Persian Cats” soundtrack, released in 2010.
