Chariot of Shame @ Petit Campus – TONIGHT

Posted by Nika / January 20, 2007


Chariot of Shame (awesome name, makes me want to cry) will be first on stage tonight at the Petit Campus on Prince Arthur and promises to warm up that sad, neglected rocker in you. It’s been cold outside, you need some warmth.

No stranger to poutines, this band has actually invented two poutines at the Montreal Pool Room: The Jackpot (with lil bits of deep fried hotdog) and The Catastrophe (deep fried hotdog bits, hot peppers, onions and cabbage). I await your reviews and comments.

The name, what is up with the name? Supposedly the name of the band was inspired by the guitarists’ (Réjean) old Jetta. But PJ claims otherwise, “It's one of his old girlfriends'
nickname.” How romantic.

Sounds like… Rock and roll, how many ways can you describe rock and roll? “Loud, energetic, angry and heavy yet with a thread of humor running throughout.” We like funny. “Pure, unpretentious rock for the 21st century.”

What’s the CoS story? Darien Klapka (drums) and Stacy Burns (guitar) had met up while they were living in NYC and upon returning to Montreal, they met up with their old highschool friend Rejean Denoncourt (guitar). No one is quite sure how PJ Kennedy (bass) joined the bunch, rumours are that he just showed up one day. “Chariot of Shame was born out of our infamous $100 jams (that's what each of us would spend on "supplies"). It took 3 or 4 years (not sure) to get where we are now (wherever that is).” Inspiring.

What local acts have you played with?
The guys have shared the spotlight with Jesus and the Headliners, Rocket vs. Robot, Demon's Claw and Moonshine Orchestra. “Our sole gig out of town was at the Cameron House in Toronto with our friends the Randwiches.”

Discography? Recorded in 2006 at Beatbox Studio with Ryan Battistuzzi, the Chariot of Shame debut album will be set for a “bona fide launch party” next month. Stay tuned to Midnight Poutine for details. This party may very well tear a hole in your cerebral cortex.

Tonight’s gig at Petit Campus features Chariot of Shame opening for Adam Brown and headliners The Mongrels. CoS starts at around 9 (or so) and the whole shebang will only run you 8$. I love this city.

You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really one thing which I think I might never
understand. It kind of feels too complex and very wide for me.
I'm having a look ahead for your next put up, I will try to get the hold of
