My top five songs at the moment:
1. Da Bomb Blue Quarter
"From the En'trance album. Blue Quarter are friends of ours from Vancouver. Previously from Canmore, before that, Montreal. Nice guys, though."
2. Can't Put My Finger On It Ween
"From Painting the Town Brown live stuff by the greatest live band ever. They played for four hours last time they were in Vancouver."
3. 911 Is A Joke Public Enemy
"Flava Flav may be my favourite MC (besides Chris Berry... Hi Sweetie!)"
4. Olé Mulholland Frank Black
"From Teenager of the Year. I've listened to more Frank Black than anything else the last couple of years."
5. Wake Up Three Days Grace
This is my cousin Adam's band. He's the sexiest man in Canadian Rock. Seriously, look it up! (Chart Magazine, September 2004).
Last Words :
"I'd like to include Jimi, Neil, Jeff Buckley and John Lennon, Beck,
Bjork, James Brown and Muddy Waters. Aside from that: support minor hockey, buy locally and listen to college radio."
