Η τρελή πτήση του Some Questions συνεχίζεται, πηγαίνοντάς μας ξανά στην απέναντι όχθη του Ατλαντικού και πιο συγκεκριμένα ξανά στον Καναδά. Ακόμα μία καναδέζικη μπάντα και ταυτόχρονα ακόμα μία από τις μπάντες των οποίων το δίσκο θα έχουμε ψηλά στη λίστα μας μάς έκανε την τιμή να καθίσει στην ανακριτική καρέκλα του SQ. Μάλιστα θα λέγαμε ότι, μετά τους σχεδόν απροσπέλαστους Dungen, ήταν οι πλέον δύσκολοι στην πρόσβαση -αργήσαμε πολύ να βρούμε τον τρόπο να τους φτάσουμε! Αλλά τα καταφέραμε, και η χαρά μας όταν πήραμε τις απαντήσεις τους δεν περιγράφεται. Οι Besnard Lakes, οι δημιουργοί του πιο χορταστικού κιθαριστικού δίσκου του 2010 (για την uptight, να εξηγούμαστε), είναι οι 24οι καλεσμένοι μας και η Olga Goreas, που μαζί με το σύζυγο Jace Lasek αποτελούν την ψυχή και την καρδιά του συγκροτήματος, κάθεται αναπαυτικά κάτω από το εκτυφλωτικό φως του προβολέα...
Could you please tell us...
1. Three albums you’d take along on a desert island?
Talk Talk Spirit of Eden to be zen
Drive Like Jehu Yank Crime for when I wanna wreck stuff
Cocteau Twins Heaven or Las Vegas to hear a girl singing and in an incomprehensible language
2. A song you wish you’d written?
"Fight the Power" by Public Enemy
3. Your Sunday morning song?
Anything off of the Bee-Gee's Odessa.
4. Your favourite b-side?
No, it's all about the a-side! Actually, I remember that XTC had released the song "Dear God" as a b-side to what song I can't remember. So I'd have to say that that is my favourite b-side.
5. Your favourite Beatles song?
"Tomorrow Never Knows".
6. A musician/band you think is criminally underrated?
Do you mean underrated musically or criminally? Maybe both? Actually, I think I'd have to say Sly and the Family Stone. Well, maybe they're appreciated to a certain extent, but they're freaking amazing on ecstasy I'm told.
7. Your favourite place for writing music?
I don't really have a special, designated place where I write. Inspiration comes at the weirdest times and it's very hard to nail that down. Usually I prefer to be in an environment where there's activity going on - for some reason that usually allows me to focus. I suppose the (as in THE) place would be the control room of my husband's studio where we record our albums. In fact, I'm in there right now!
8. What your music-related plans are for the next 12 months?
We're finishing off work on a film score for a movie called Memories Corner, playing some shows in January in Montreal, Toronto, Detroit and Chicago, and going to Australia in March to play some shows. Hopefully by fall of next year we'll be working on new material for the next album.
9. What you wish to do once you retire from music?
Who said I'm retiring? Ha ha.... I've always wanted to go back to university and get my masters degree in something. Maybe I'll do that when I'm 75.
10. A stylistic choice you’ve made and are now ashamed of?
What a weird question! But so true... I have flirted with bad style choices, not telling though!
11. Which role you would like to have played if you were an actor?
I'd imagine it was pretty fun for Cate Blanchett to have been Jude as Bob Dylan in I'm Not There. Whoa, that's so meta.
12. A recurring childhood dream of yours?
I wish I still had the dreams that I had when I was child. I had some wonderful lucid dreams and out-of-body dreams where I was flying. I remember my sister I think told me that you die in real life if you hit the ground in your dreams. But it's not true because I did hit once and obviously I'm still alive right?
13. If you are superstitious?
....they ask on the 13th question!
14. A sentence containing the words ”some” and ”beans”?
Some beans are cool beans!
Sorry for the late reply. Olga answered your questions (see below).
Let us know when the post is up.
Keep up the blogging!"
