Call & Response: Wind Up Radio Sessions

Posted by Luc / June 29, 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.

A lot of great things have come out of Hamilton, Ontario over the years. Such as the African Lion Safari park. And Michael Cera. Uh...ok bad example. But I am excited to see Scott Pilgrim. Anyway, the latest export from Canada's steel town are The Wind Up Radio Sessions and their latest release Red Brick House. Oh...what's that? They're from Dundas, Ontario? And they live in Montreal now? Well I can't keep up with everything guys. You can catch them on Canada Day @ Casa Del Popolo or check out their MySpace.

I recently had a chance to sit down with The Wind Up Radio Sessions via the interweb and ask them some very in-depth questions about life and music:

Who is your favorite Canadian Artist?
Matt: Timber Timbre, or 70's Québec teenage pop sensation René Simard!
Dan: Stompin' Tom Connors.

Besides family, friends, other music, and long summer nights, what influences your music the most?
Matt: A combination of curry, lager, freshly cut grass and my cat kneading my stomach like a proud baker with a fresh batch of bread dough.
Dan: Recently, The X Files.

What do you love most about Montreal?

Matt: Neighbourhood strolls that lead to nights of mayhem in alcoholic drug dens of humidity, scantily clad tattooed ladies and hooligans rioting to the sound of onlookers munching on Pogo's.
Dan: The ongoing discovery of new places and people amongst the frequent encounters at familiar dives with familiar faces.

What do you hate most about Poutine?
Matt: Always overestimating my own hunger by ordering a large and being too proud to stop eating.
Dan: The morning after.

Who was your first live concert? Was it everything you had ever imagined?
Matt: REM in Huddersfield, England when I was about 12 years old with my parents keeping their beady eyes on me at all times. Rock n' Roll.
Dan: I'm pretty sure it was either Sharon Lois & Bram or Bob Schneider and the Rainbow Kids.

What's the best way to spend a Million dollars in 10 minutes?
Matt: The KFC millionaire bucket.
Dan: Buy an entire lot of old Volvo wagons to draw parts from and your own personal Volvo mechanic, but I don't know if one million would be enough.

What's the best place you've ever been to?
Matt: The mind of our mascot Golden Retriever Ralph

What's the worst place you've ever been to?
Matt: I used to work at a gigantic corporate Bingo parlour. I can't bring myself to describe the horror.
Dan: The Circus Room in Kitchener.

How did you spend your 16th birthday?
Matt: I have a vague memory of being taken out by my friends to a few local pubs and nearly choking on the smoke of a comedy sized cigar.
Dan: From what I recall, I went to the license bureau to write my beginner's test and spent the rest of the day scaring the shit out of other people on the road.
