Five Funky Stories:: Ricardo from Oldfolks Home

Now that the countdown for HPX ’09 is on, we’ve been trying to pit our magical random question machine against as many of this year’s performers as possible in the hopes that hilarity and/or insight would ensue. So who’s our latest contestant? Why it’s Ricardo Lopez of Winnipeg’s Oldfolks Home.

Ricardo and OFH is a natural choice for us, considering he’s been featured on our Manitoba mixtape, done a fantastic take on a BSS song for our sporadic Word On The Beat section, and seems to be by all accounts a very nice dude. Ricardo & OFH are part of a great HPX show, playing The Paragon on Thursday, October 22nd with Jenocide, Think About Life, and mr. Roland Pemberton - so read his answers below, and then get out and see him next month.

Name: Ricardo
Band: Oldfolks Home

1. Super tight pants on dudes: Yes! or Noooooooooooooooo!

It depends on how hot the weather is. Although my yoga shorts are pretty tight, but I am expecting to sweat and they’re shorts. Does that count? I guess my real answer is no. I don’t have the right kind of legs.

2. What’s the best band name you can think of in the next 15 seconds?

I can’t say on the internet for fear of insulting too many people and ruining my bands good name.

3. Name your all-time favorite Canadian album.

You Forgot it in People by BSS

4. Mr. Dressup or The Friendly Giant? (or neither because you’re too young and have no idea who they are)

Because I don’t remember either (although I watched both), The Hilarious House of Frightenstein.

5. Patio Lanterns, Go For Soda, or WFT does that mean?

Patio Lanterns because he complains too much in Go For A Soda.
