A few years ago (maybe 2005…) PM went mental for Precious Fathers, an instrumental bunch from Vancouver. They were a slow-burning affair, both musically and progressively, culminating in them taking a good four years to release to their excellent self-titled debut (thanks to stints in other bands, including Destroyer ferchrissakes). Alluvial Fan is coming out on June 22nd, but you can hear the whole thing streaming on Myspace. PM gave it a whirl yesterday and thought it was not un-excellent. In fact, it was excellent. Anywho, Paul Goertzen from the band was kind enough to answer a few questions. Not about the album or anything, just, y’know, how’s it goin’ sort of stuff.
In a word, how’s your week?
What did you get up to last night and how was it?
Photographed a friends art, ate a delicious Empanada and shook hands. It was great.
What’s for dinner tonight and who’s cooking it?
Well I’m heading for practice in a barn in unincoporated territory outside of Vancouver right after work tonight so maybe a gas station dog. I guess the gas station guy makes them. Yea he does for sure. Not sure if those guys get the food safety training.
What have you listened to today and did you like it?
Coworkers saying good morning and my girlfriend. I’m kinda into those Blank Dogs.
What’s your favourite/least favourite thing that’s happened this week?
Paul, thanks forever. Have a read of PM’s early forays into musalism – a review of the first Precious Fathers record and another interview with Paul – for this amazing old US site that’s now defunct. Needs to come back, I’d write my face off for those guys.
