Exciting times on the Breakfast Club this week because I'm heading back to the Gladstone Hotel, this time to meet up with Natalia Yanchak and Murray Lightburn of the Dears! One of the first bands to put Montreal on the indie-rock map more than 10 years ago, the Dears have a new record out called Degeneration Street, and they're about to kick off a healthy tour of the west coast of North America. And they were just on Letterman again the other night. I'm eager to talk to them about all of this, so please stick around!
Are you a fan of the Dears? Any plans to see them live any time soon or pick up their new record, Degeneration Street?
I have five CD copies to give away to the first listeners who can correctly answer the following questions about today's show on the blog (if you guess in advance, a baby pony will spend a terrible afternoon with Charlie Sheen. I used this last week, I know. In fact, I now think it might be a crazy amazing afternoon with Charlie Sheen. Winning!):
1. What sport inspired Murray’s first musical experimentation?
2. When is Murray’s birthday and where has he spent at least six of them?
3. Natalia mentions reading an article about a record label and their mandate. What label is she talking about?
4. Murray mentions some friends and neighbours in Montreal who also play in bands. Name a specific band he alludes to, who have an unlikely connection to author Salman Rushdie.
5. What do the Dears require to maintain their sanity on the road?
The answers to these questions, and possibly others, will turn up on today's show. If you end up being the first person to post a winning answer on the blog (once!), please e-mail vish_khanna [at] cbcradio3.com with "Poor Segue Corner" in the subject line, and your blog moniker and shipping address in your message.
