In The Know...11 Questions w/ Paper Lions

>> Saturday, 9 October 2010

On Thursday, October 14th, Belfast, Prince Edward Island music exports Paper Lions take the stage at the Royal Albert for a night of smart, spirited, and style-bending indie-rock/pop (Library Voices are also on the bill).

Comprised of Colin Buchanan (guitar), David MacDonald (drums), and brothers Rob (bass) and John MacPhee (lead vocals), this ascending quartet have generated some healthy buzz thanks in part to their well-received, explosive EP, Trophies, and their high energy, unique shows.

I recently caught up with the band's guitarist, Colin Buchanan, for 11 Questions, and here's what he had to say:

1. Where are you right now?

On route back to the island (Prince Edward (home)) to play the 7th and 8th show of our cross country record release tour with Bend Sinister and Library Voices

Let’s talk music…

2. What are some albums that completely changed your life?

The Strokes - Is This It : This album came out when I was about to enter grade 10 and thus just about to enter High School. Up to that point my musically tastes pretty much began and ended with that Suburban Pop Punk stuff that was everywhere. I tried my hand at skateboarding and BMXing with moderate success. After hearing that first Strokes album I didn't feel like I needed to prove my extreme sport skills anymore.

3.  Of the records you own, which has the best cover art?

Bowie - Aladdin Sane

4. Who is one producer, alive or dead, you’d just love to work with?

Nigel Godrich

5. What’s the oddest thing a fan has yelled during one of your shows?

"One more song!"

6. What is your favourite music video?

El Guincho - Bombay

7. Where do you shop for music?

Back Alley Music in Charlottetown PEI

And some hodgepodge…

8. What’s one film you can watch over and over again?

The Big Lebowski

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

The Big Short - Michael Lewis

10. What tv show(s) do you follow?

Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Big Love, home improvement

11. And finally, would you rather have the ability to fly or turn invisible?

I'm like a bird. I want to fly away.
