An interview with Martin Cesar about his recent album, "Peace Signs"

Posted by Greg / December 10, 2012

20121210-Dishwasher.jpgMartin Cesar won the hearts of Montrealers as the frontman of Think About Life, and all that time he was also creating music under the solo moniker of Dishwasher. He recently released a 7-song album called Peace Signs for through Villa Villa Nola. Below I talk with him about music, life, and one really sweet Croatian beauty pageant.

When did you start making music as Dishwasher?

I started the project in 2003. Actually, the first song I recorded was around the time of the invasion of Iraq. It was a way to counteract what I was seeing on television.

Do you have any conscious influences for this project? Or is the sound just happening?

I often find myself singing made up doo-wop songs. That might be an influence. Most of the time the music comes from a very strong thought or feeling that I might have. I made a song once that's called Wild nights with Barry Bonds, and that's exactly what I was thinking about at that time.

What's going on in the Around Here video? That looked like a pretty sweet party.

My girlfriend and I were at a big outdoor party/beauty pageant in southern Croatia. We just happened to have a camera with us. Beautiful time.

As a member of Think About Life, you were involved in the Montreal DYI music scene early on in a pretty formative decade. How has the scene changed since then? Do you like where it's going?

There are some amazingly talented people within all the pockets of this city. The environment is alive and healthy from what I can tell. Where is it going? No idea. I've become preoccupied with other things in life and I don't really consider myself to be part of any scene.

What are you listening to these days? Any recommendations for readers?

I've been a long time admirer of Charles Aznavour. The man is 88 years old now and he's not going to live forever unfortunately.

I have been a loyal and enthusiastic fan of the Nexus One and Android. It would be nice to see some sort of doicsunt for current Nexus One users.Many of my family and friends have chosen Android phones after seeing my N1 (it also helps that my brother-in-law is an engineer at T-mobile). I also posted a number of videos on Youtube, from unboxing to the many apps I use. I'm sure with over 30,000 views I helped sell a few Nexus Ones. Ashton Kutcher even mentioned one of my videos on Twitter... he liked how you could use the phone as a metal detector. I wish there was a program where Google would send out the phone to some of us die-hard users to review, blog about, and create videos of. A lot of people help decide what they will buy based on blogs and videos created by your average user.Anyway, the Nexus S looks great, but as a teacher I probably won't be able to afford it for a while.Tim JohnsonPhoenix, AZ

Divorce,drama, loss of a job, health issues about yourself or
someone you love - these products happen. If getting pregnant into sound condition is essential
to you then these food types is not going to allow you to achieve that.
The results were run out skin and mental fuzziness not
to mention cravings for fatty foods.
