Entrevue avec Garrett Wadford de Bird attack records

Q-You play for Sled and you're the owner of Bird Attack records, we are just a few days away from the Bird Attack mini tour in Canada. What do you expect from this adventure?
A-Going into my favorite punk rock country, I couldn’t be happier. 4 bands, 1 label and all friends. I love all the dudes in 88, Belvedere, Such Gold and the guys in SLED. 3 of the 4 bands have had a brand new album drop over the last couple of months and they are all ready to get out there and play them live for the fans. Belvedere’s record dropped last year, but people are still eating it up and they absolutely rip live. There’s only 3 shows, so we are packing in every drop of energy, fun and shred we can for everyone.

Q-2017 is a really good year so far for Bird Attack with releases from big name like Authority Zero and the great comeback of 88FL. Any scoops you tell us about some upcoming albums to be released on Bird Attack?
A-Friday we drop Wraths, Jim Lindberg's other project. Its an EP and its good ole fashion punk rock that hits hard and gets you grooving. We have 8 bands on the Calendar after that, all of which bring the fire. I can give you some hints.. but nothing official since we having really released any news on it yet. 1st hint; a band that has 4 legends of punk rock in it. 2nd hint; A band that originated in the caribbean. 3rd hint; a band that is suited for fans of A Wilhelm Scream… that should get you going for now hahah.

Q-Bird Attack Records is now the lighthouse for todays Skatepunk genre, with bands like Mute, Adrenalized, Belvedere, The Decline and the list goes on and on. Fast skatepunk seems to be really healthy at this time and it is good news for everyone, labels, promoters, bands and of course fans! How does it looks from your point of view, like behind the big desk?
A-we love! Its going great over here. I love doing the best I can for bands big and small, for us its all about getting the word out and doing it by trying to think outside of the box. I love what I do, I’m passionate about it and it feels great to be able to be a small part of something that has been such a massive part of my life. I make new friends daily and some of my closest relationships right now have come from Bird Attack and the band and fans we work with daily. I also own a vinyl pressing business called Merchant Vinyl, which means cheaper records for the label and the bands records that we press; it gives us a change to get a little crazy with the designs. All in All, its looking pretty damn good back here and we have a ton of ideas popping up over the next 6 - 12 months. I think everyones going to be stoked on it.

Q-Quebec always been a fertile field for the punk rock scene. Your partnered with Francis for L'invasion Bird Attack in St-Hyacinthe on Oct. 7th. How important is it for a label like yours to have succes in this part of the world?
A- I love Francis, he’s like me a lot; tons of passion for punk and a huge desire to be a part of what he is so passionate about. He comes up with an idea and finds a way to make it happen; I think thats why I was happy to be a part of L’invasion with him. This event is going to be so much damn fun, I think we have 8 Bird Attack Records bands playing. Its super important to gain success or grow or just be around an area that is thriving on punk rock. Its like the mecca of skate punk in my opinion and there are a ton of younger kids as well at these shows, which is rare these days. Who wouldn’t want to be around a region that is so stoked on the same things you are… it just feels good and we are doing what we can to support it in any way we can. Make sure to come say hello when your at L’invasion, my band SLED is playing so I’ll be around!

Entrevue avec
This Wild Life
qui seront à mtl dimanche 16/07

Q-Hi guys, first of all thanks for your time, you got a busy schedule touring all summer thru October. How does it feel to be already sold out in countries like Brazil and Australia?
A-It's kind of funny thinking about the demand for shows in countries other than your own to be honest. Our first sold out show was in London, not in our hometown. It's strange but humbling all at once.
Q-Canada always been a fertile field for musicians how do you describe your relationship with your upstairs neighbors?
A-We've only had the pleasure of playing Montreal and Vancouver once besides Toronto a handful of times, but all of our experiences (including the border crossing) have been incredible. We're excited to get back.
Q-Your latest official video, Break me, got over 150K views in less than 2 weeks, anything you want to say about this song?
A-This was such a fun release for us right before the tour. We were able to really focus on the release due to being late in our album cycle, it's been awesome playing this song each night.
Q-From pianist and drummer to one of the most popular acoustic Duo, what are the biggest changes in your lives since your days working together in a local music store?
A-The biggest change is definitely the opportunity to see the world. We both grew up kinda poor and nobody in our families have had the opportunity to travel like we have. Seeing the way people live around the world is a trip. Pun intended.
Q-In the end, witch one of your songs has the deepest meaning for you both?
A-'No More Bad Days' has definitely resonated the most in my life and has affected the most change in others. That song has reached far more people than I ever expected it to, and those connections are something I hold dearly.

Entrevue avec Ben & Matt de Worst Days Down

Q-How does it feel to be part of this unique Pouzza Fest in a city like Montréal?  
A-Ben: Thanks for taking the time to speak with us. I'm very excited to get back to Pouzza as it's truly a special weekend for many people.  Our bassist Matt seems to have his head wrapped the most concisely around the festival and what it means.
Q-Any bands you won't miss from this great lineup?
A-Matt : One thing I really love about Pouzza is that it gives me a chance to see a bunch of bands that I love, who I likely wouldn't be able to see otherwise. I mean, what's the chance of bands like Bike Tuff, Campaign or Typesetter visiting Edmonton any time soon? Probably slim to none. I'm excited to see those bands, as well as Red City Radio and Western Settings for the first time. It's also going to be fun seeing pals like Jon Creeden, Old Wives, and Seth Anderson do their thing in Montreal. I'm probably most excited for Daggermouth and to hear some new Flatliners songs live.
Q-Best way to describe your relation with your fan base here in Poutine Land?
A-Matt: Ben (vocals) has played Montreal a few times solo under the 'Worst Days Down' name, but this will be the first time that we will play Montreal as a full band. With that brings excitement and no real expectations; just  have fun, play hard and cut loose (which we're quite good at), and make some buds.  With my other band Audio/Rocketry I've played Montreal a bunch and have been lucky enough to play Pouzza previously, and I can sincerely say that the fans and the music scene in Montreal rivals the best in the world.
Q-Where do you see the Punk Rock scene in 10 years?
A- Ben:  I can't imagine the amount of new sub-genre titles that will arise in the next decade. By then we will be (hopefully alive,) and describing ourselves as post-existential-neon-unitard-streetpunk. I think events like Pouzza help solidify the community, and ingrain in people what we can accomplish together bonding over music and what we love.
Q- Quick one in the end, what's your favorite Descendents/ALL song?
A-Matt: That's such a good question. The first Descendents song that I heard was ''Coffee Mug''- it's the first track on the Punk-O-Rama 2 compilation, and that comp was huge for me as a young buck. So I'll go with that one. I'm seeing them for the first time on May 3rd and there's a pretty good chance that my head might friggin' implode

Entrevue avec
Seth Anderson de One week Records & Little Rocket Records

Q-How does it feel to be part of this unique Pouzza Fest in a city like Montréal?  
A-I feel really lucky to be part of such an amazing festival and community in a city that I love. Pouzza has remained grassroots as it continues to grow every year, and Montreal has a warm and welcoming feel that is a perfect backdop for such chaos.

Q-Any bands you won't miss from this great lineup?
A-There are just way too many great bands this year. These guys organizing are gonna make me have a damn mental breakdown. haha. I'm really stoked to see the One Week Records Family there, that being Joey Cape, Brian Wahlstrom, Chris Cresswell, and Jon Snodgrass. I'm also excited to finally see Iron Chic Tim Barry, and Jon Creeden with his full band, The Flying Hellfish.

Q-Best way to describe your relation with your fan base here in Poutine Land?
A-Well, I love poutine, so we already have that bond!!  I feel like the community of people that attend Pouzza, to play or spectate, are all going for the same thing. We all just want to add a little positivity and hope to this world that we are in, and to have a good time enjoying good people while we are doing that. I feel like my relationship to everyone is one of camaraderie and also dependency. We are all in this together, so without one another, what would be the point?

Q-Where do you see the Punk Rock scene in 10 years?
A- I think that it is gonna be thriving. We are far from having reached a perfect utopia of existence on this planet, where pain and poverty no longer exist. There is a lot of good in the world too, don't get me wrong, and punk rock is about that as well to me. It is as important, and also vital, as ever. I think we can expect a lot of great music and art in general in the years to come. People need it. I need it. You need it. Everybody needs it. Even people that don't know they need it, need it.

Q- Quick one in the end, what's your favorite Descendents/ALL song?
A- Bikeage.

Entrevue avec Nick Woods de Direct Hit

Q-How does it feel to be part of this unique Pouzza Fest in a city like Montréal?  
A-Super cool! This'll be our third Pouzza Fest. We had an awesome time partying in 2013 and 2015, and we're psyched we get to do it again.

Q-Any bands you won't miss from this great lineup?
A-Brutal Youth and The Dirty Nil. BY are pals of ours and have been for a long while, and I've seen the Dirty Nil in Milwaukee a few times too. We got lucky they're both on our show.

Q-Best way to describe your relation with your fan base here in Poutine Land?
A-Not only Montréal but the whole Province. "Fan base" isn't a term I like to use. We've been friends with Jon Juneau, who booked us our first string of dates in Canada on our first tour back in 2013. I got a tattoo from David Cote in 2015. Guilhem and the Lost Love dudes have played with us a couple times, and our pal Max LeClerc hooked us up with pizza and a couple couches in Quebec City a long while back. The Montreal show on the tour we got to play with Reel Big Fish and Anti-Flag was maybe my favorite of that trip. Our shows in Quebec are always fun.

Q-Where do you see the Punk Rock scene in 10 years?
A- I don't know, every time I try to talk about punk rock I get less punk, so trying to figure that out would probably kill my vision.
Q- Quick one in the end, what's your favorite Descendents/ALL song?
A-"Bikeage," for sure.

À ne pas manquer  le 20 Mai dans le cadre du Pouzza 2017 aux Katakombes

Entrevue avec
Sammy Kay de
Stomp Records

Q-How does it feel to be part of this unique Pouzza Fest in a city like Montréal?  
A-pouzza rules. Plain and simple. It's one of those few Moments in all of our dysfunctional rock and roll lives where everyone is all is the same place, catching up and smiling! Montreal as a whole rules, and I don't think me and the boys would be as excited if it wasn't Montreal.

Q-Any bands you won't miss from this great lineup?
A-man, I love the flatliners. I always have. Ain't missing that for the world. I'm bummed that we're gonna miss Two Cow Garage. Their new record is just perfect. I'm hoping to catch OWTH, I've never gotten to see Chris Farren, and I fucking love everything he does. Same with makewar. Never got to catch them and their records rule!

Q-Best way to describe your relation with your fan base here in Poutine Land?
A-Our MTL Fans aren't fans. The folks that come hang out at our shows are a family. I can name almost every single one at every show. I can tell you what they do. They gave a shit about us when we were starting off, and they always have. That's family. Not fans.

Q-Where do you see the Punk Rock scene in 10 years?
A- In ten years I hope bad religion is still playing shows. I hope nofx is still shouting. I hope we still can't understand half the words that come out of Tim Armstrongs mouth. And I sure hope pouzza is still running strong.

Q- Quick one in the end, what's your favorite Descendents/ALL song?
A-You ever see airheads. Who will win in a fight? Lemmy or god. Trick question. I love every one. One every record

Entrevue avec  
The Old Wive

Q-How does it feel to be part of this unique Pouzza Fest in a city like Montréal?  
A-I love Montreal. It's the best. We love playing Pouzza because hanging out in Montreal and shooting the shit with friends, fans, bands, band friends, & strangers rules!

Q-Any bands you won't miss from this great lineup?
A-I'll be at as many shows as I can! I love seeing new bands! But for sure, Direct Hit!, Iron Chic, PUP, Broadway Calls, Flats, Brutal Youth, Dumb Adults, Elder Abuse... I could go on.

Q-Best way to describe your relation with your fan base here in Poutine Land?
A-Well, I'm from Nova Scotia so for some reason the rest of my band thinks I can speak french. They always tell me to talk to someone if they start speaking to us in french, Really, I only know a very little. But to answer your question, Montreal has always been kind to us. I'm just doing up the pre-orders for our new record as we speak and there's quite a few from Montreal/Quebec.

Q-Where do you see the Punk Rock scene in 10 years?
A- Hard to say. I like it where it is. If you like punk music then you seek it out. It was great in the mid 90's when MTV and Much Music exposed a lot of people to the genre but I feel like a lot of kids today are jerks and I don't want them in the scene. So if that were to happen again, I'd start playing jazz. No one seems to be jumping on the jazz wagon.

Q- Quick one in the end, what's your favorite Descendents/ALL song?
A-Too many to choose! I'll say...... Parents. Or Coffee Mug. Parents from when I was younger, Coffee Mug means more to me now that I'm older.
