Subject ID - alternative, Canada (ArenaCast E84)

About: Subject ID -very interesting band from Bratford

"What would later become Subject id first began as simple dorm room jams as university room mates. Though they frustrated many of their fellow students in the halls with excessive screaming and obnoxious “playing” at ungodly hours, they did manage to attract the odd audience. A natural preference towards guitar over their studies soon propelled them to open mics and even a switch in programs for Mercante - who later decided to take Seneca’s Independent Music Production program in Toronto. The band is currently working on their debut album and are gigging the southern Ontario scene."

1). What is the most exotic/extraordinary place you have ever performed at?
Nothing too crazy yet. But in our first year of university there were flyers posted around the residence building inviting artists to play at an open mic. Halfway through our set we noticed that the majority of people in there were wearing black. Everyone was really into the music, and after the set we were approached by a hoard of very deprived and horny catholic girls who were no doubt after something. They informed us that the entire set we had just played was for a strong religious gathering...it also explained the washy hallelujah covers and saccharine piano ballads. I guess we brought those girls something a little more interesting ;)

2). When you are 70 – how do you see your life?
When I’m 70 I’ll probably be looking through an online catalogue for the fastest electric wheelchair my money can buy, and organizing old-people races similar to the ones in the Fast and the Furious. We’ll soup them up and maybe even make it into the Oldympics.

3). If you could talk to any of the rock-stars, dead or alive, whom would you talk to and what would you ask?
I’d talk to Jeff Buckley and prudently ask him to never go swimming in Wolf River.

4). What countries and cities would you like to visit the most during the tour?
I’d like to visit/play in Alberta. From the pictures I have seen it’s a truly amazing and unique area. I’d like to go run through their forests and try and survive for a few days. Anthony and I would definitely love to play at a little town in Italy called Castelli where both of our families are from. We’ve visited it in the past, but to actually play a show in their town square would be beyond cool!

5). Which famous band/artist you would be glad to share the stage with?
Sharing the stage with MGMT would probably be a lot of fun. Those guys seem very tongue in cheek and I love what they’re doing. They’ve so far managed to keep this great pop sensibility while going well outside the box creatively. I feel like they’ve always got something worth listening to.
