Five Funky Stories:: Chad from Kestrels

Five Funky Stories:: Chad from Kestrels

If you know our history here at the hill, you'll know that we enjoy the cut of Kestrels jib. We've talked about them a few times on the site, and they're a past recipient of the herohill/MNS artist of the month designation, so it was natural that we got them hooked up with our random question machine in advance of their HPX show.

You can see Kestrels play as part of the Noyes showcase on Wednesday, Oct. 21st at the Toothy Moose along with Hannah Georges, Said The Whale, and The Memories Attack. Yes, that happens to be the same night as the herohill showcase, and so ordinarily I would tell you to forget going to it, but I hear the Toothy Moose has a huge moose sign that shoots steam out of it's nose, so I wouldn't want anyone to miss that. Oh, and the bands are pretty great too. Anyway, to the matter at hand. Kestrels frontman Chad agreed to face the random question machine, so let's get to it.

Name: Chad
Band: Kestrels
Web: www.kestrels.ca

1. Name a song you love that might surprise people.

"I Want You" by Elvis Costello. Not actually a guilty pleasure...that song is just stupidly good.

2. What's your favorite thing to do to pass time on the road?

Read and listen to the iPod. Excessive mouth breathing to annoy my bandmates. I like going to guitar stores more than I probably should.

3. If forced to cover one hip hop song, what would it be?

'Basketball' by Kurtis Blow / 'Triumph' by Wu-Tang / 'Dog Shit' by Wu-tang.

4. Phil Collins, yes or no?

NO. Yes. (records). Well...he was part of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lamb_Lies_Down_on_Broadway so it's not a total no.

5. What's the most unusual audience you've played for?

Seated theatre of about 150 people at the Marigold Center in Truro. 99% of the crowd was there to see the Novaks, and we were deer in the bright stage lights.
