11 Questions With...The Job

>> Tuesday, 21 July 2009

Giveaways ahoy! The giving gang over at The MuseBox Canada are offering readers of this blog a “The Job”-related prize pack consisting of the following:

• A copy of The Job’s CD
• A The Job T-Shirt
• A guest list spot for their show at the Lo (+1)

So who are The Job, you ask? Well, The Job are a Toronto-based garage rocking quartet known for their devastatingly raucous live shows, something Winnipeggers will get to experience first hand this Monday the 27th at the Lo Pub (for free if you win the contest). If you’re interested, flip me a quick email by Friday at noon with “The Job Giveaway” in the subject line, be sure to include your full name and just for fun, answer the following question: What’s one of your essential summertime records? (While still a newbie record, Cut Copy’s In Ghost Colours is and should continue to be one of my fav summer albums). One entry per person please. And remember you need to be 18 to get into the Lo.

Also, Vocalist/guitarist Nyles Miszczyk of The Job took part in the now-patented 11 questions segment and gave me some pretty decent (although succinct) responses. We apparently share a love of Xenon.

1. Where are you right now?

MOOG Audio on Queen St. (at work)

2. Who is the best Toronto-based band (other than your own, of course)?

Bang Bangs - their lead singer Sian will take you into a back alley, sing the shit out of you and leave you for dead. Brilliant.

3. What are your top three, all-time favourite records?

Beatles - Revolver, Television - Marquee Moon, Beulah - When Your Heartstrings Break

4. Of the albums you own, which has the best cover art?

Louvin Brothers - Satan Is Real

5. What is one song you love, but dismiss as “a guilty pleasure”?

"Peg" by Steely Dan

6. What was the last great concert you saw?

King Khan & The Shrines. They'll make you believe.

7. Would you rather have invisibility or flight?

Invisibility, because airplanes take care of all my flying needs.

8. What is your favourite periodic element?

Xenon - I like my gasses noble.

9. Stephen Colbert or Jon Stewart?

Jon Stewart. His hair in Death To Smoochy is a constant inspiration to me and the rest of the band.

10. What book(s) are you currently reading?

The Collected Short Works of Roald Dahl... probably the 5th time I read it.

11. And finally…who’s your favourite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, or Raphael?

Michelangelo. Easy. Did you know that Splinter and Elmo are played by the same guy? I shit you not.
