26: A vocalist you love? Joe Strummer, he isn’t the best by any means but its fucking Joe Strummer.
36: What’s the first album you ever bought with your own money?
KISS Animalize …feel free to mock me now but I loved KISS growing up and I saved up all this money and went to this weird mini mall record store and bought it on tape. I still waste all my money on buying albums.
60: A song that has a lot of meaning to you?
The Weakerthans “Everything Must Go” it was the soundtrack for one of the most confusing parts of my life. Where I was half way through university and I didn’t want to be there. I just wanted to run my record label, put on shows and work at the record store but I was also scared because I knew my parents came to this country so I could get an education and do what they couldn’t. So I stuck it out. I was in love with someone even though I was supposed to be in love with someone else and it was all so confusing to me.And basically, I hated and loved my life all at once. I was a walking pop punk song. I reluctantly went to the Weakerthans show that I helped put on even though I didn’t really get the hype around the band and after hearing this song it all clicked. Even though the lyrics really didn’t go with my problems I just felt like it spoke to me.I’d spend the rest of the summer with this album and specifically this song as my late night soundtrack where I questioned all around me.
