In Their Own Words: AIDS Wolf

Posted by Jer / February 4, 2011

AIDS WolfIn their Own Words: the Montreal Sessions is a unique, in depth ten-part band profile series. The musicians featured share their experiences, inspirations, and aspirations in pursuit of their artistic vision. On this week's show, AIDS Wolf.

Kick in the head, pop-starved anti music; AIDS Wolf is Choloe Lum on vocals, Alexander Mokos on treated guitar and Yannick Desranleau on drums. The musical visionaries of AIDS Wolf are unapologetic about their abrasive melodies and sincere in their conviction and love of what they do. Dissonant, polyrhythmic and disjunctive best describes the sound of Montreal's Aids Wolf. A label for the narrow minded.

In their own words: Aids Wolf. A band ahead of their time.

This podcast is really inspiring. I'm from London,UK and stumbled across the AIDS Wolf beast just by chance and really love the music they make. I'm a guitarist that played in a pretty unconventional band and I identify with so much of what AIDS Wolf say about making music. Has given me the push to get a new band started up! (can't find a creative enough drummer though.. am resorting to a drum machine at the mo)

Hi Kotch,

This is Martin, the producer of In Their Own Words: the Montreal Sessions. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and story. I am gratified that you found the AIDS Wolf profile inspirational.

Check out the other profiles in the series. The musicians featured share a lot of tips, tricks and helpful insights. Personally, I have learned a lot from the musicians I have interviewed.

I will forward your posting to the members of AIDS Wolf. But, I encourage you contact them directly. They will be very appreciative.

Best of luck in artistic pursuits.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?

Hey thank you! I was thinking of depoleving my style a little.. taking the podcast and overlaying photo slideshows for those who want to listen and watch pictures change. Not too much more work for me and potentially quite nice. Thoughts?
