Call & Response: Laurent of Arabia

Posted by Luc / June 16, 2010

Call & Response is a series of Q&As with bands, artists and random people we dig that live in Montreal, visit here, or have some dubious connection to the city.

Have no fear ladies, Laurent Bourque is here to charm his way into your hearts (and pants?). With a sweet blend of heavenly tunes "Laurent manages to make interesting, personal, honest, credible and complex pop/rock music, all while writing every word, orchestrating every part and playing the vast majority of the instruments in his recordings." You can catch him tonight @ Club Lambi with Crash Karma, or check out his MySpace for all the new hotness.

I recently had a chance to sit down with Laurent Bourque via the interweb and ask him some very in-depth questions about life and music:

Who is your favorite Canadian Artist?
A: Probably Amos The Transparent. They are friends of mine and are easily one of the best bands I've ever heard.

Where is the best place to listen to your music?
A: In a car seat, while driving. Either that, or a dentist chair as you get your teeth cleaned.

What do you love most about Poutine?
A: Fries!

What do you hate most about Poutine?
A: Everything!

Who was your first live concert? Was it everything you had ever imagined?
A: The very first was Lilith Fair in 1998 in Ottawa and I don't remember much of it... I was 10 years old! I'm sure it was great though! The first extremely memorable concert of the summersault festival of 2000. I got to see The Smashing Pumpkins (of my all time favorites) before they broke up. It was awesome.

What's the best place you've ever been to?
A: antucket, Massachusetts.

How did you spend your 16th birthday?
A: Not exactly sure, probably just sat in my basement and played guitar. Not that I was a loner or anything! I just did that every night from the ages of 10 to 18... so that's my best guess!
