11 Questions With...The Paps

>> Thursday, 10 September 2009

Hailing from Gimli (incidentally, my favourite Manitoban town), The Paps make catchy and pithy and untamed power pop. The young foursome – Fiona, Jordan, Jodi, and lead singer Terra are all around 20 years old – have just released their second EP, Not Looking For Romance, and have been busy showcasing its punchy tunes all around Gimli and Winnipeg. And they're buds with the inimitable Guy Maddin - just last year the girls landed the incredibly fortuitous opening spot for Maddin’s My Winnipeg screening at the Burt. What a score!

Anyway, bassist Fiona and drummer Jodi collectively took part in my 11 questions schtick, and here’s what the young ladies had to say. (Sure ain’t hearing a lot of love for Leonardo these days, but lotsa love for Lady Gaga. Hmmm…)
