In The Know...11 Questions w/ Small Sins

>> Wednesday, 17 November 2010

Whether through word-of-mouth, show reviews, or enthusiastic comments on this blog, Small Sins' reputation for engaging and memorable live shows is spreading. And may go viral. 

I’ll admit, it's all deeply intriguing.

Tomorrow night, Winnipegers have the chance to see this buzzed-about band in the flesh. The Toronto-based pop collective -- comprised of Thomas D’Arcy (vocals, guitars, many other instruments), Brent Follett (drums), Kevin Hilliard (keyboards), Todor Kobakov (strings, piano), and Steve Krecklo (guitars) -- materialize at the Albert, touring in support of their fantastic, brainstickingly melodic record, Pot Calls Kettle Black.

I recently caught up with band founder / principal songwriter Thomas D’Arcy for 11 questions. Here’s what the man had to say. 

1. Where are you right now?

In my studio in Toronto, feeling quite hungover.

Let’s talk music…

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

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot by Wilco was a big one for me in my adult years. Zeppelin as a kid.

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

The Monks, Bad Habits

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

Already worked with him.. John McEntire.

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


6. What is your favourite music video?

I guess OK GO! is starting to steal that title. Take your pick.

And some hodgepodge…

7. What tv shows are you currently following?

East Bound and Down, Boardwalk Empire.

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

You are Not A Stranger Here by Adam Haslett

9. Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert?


10. What’s your current ring tone?


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

Invisible for sure.
