Published Feb 01, 2001Who are you?
Christopher Dodds: Thirty years old, non-musician, working stiff, admitted geek.
What are you up to?
Just bought a trailer home with the girlfriend on the city's edge, personally speaking , I'm booze-free, drug free, smoke free, but far from sin free.
Hometown and current HQ:
Brandon and now Winnipeg since '93.
Gillian Anderson, the Lester Bangs Bio, the films of Akira Kurosawa.
Mind altering work of art (not your own):
Naked Lunch (book and film).
Most memorable/inspirational gig and why?
Southern Culture On The Skids, shortly after the great flood. Totally berated the crowd for an hour, accusing us of fucking dead cows that floated down river. Best comedy show I've ever seen, thus inspiring me to be more outspoken and vulgar.
What should everyone shut up about?
Religion, Anne Geddes' Babies and how great "Phantasm" is, sucks!
Your greatest strength and weakness:
My compassion for all animals. Coca-Cola Classic (it's the main reason I'm fat).
Your vital daily ritual:
Masturbation, what else is there?
Russ Meyer films, A-HA, My Donny Most album.
If I wasn't playing music I would be:
Hmmmm, living in a trailer home with the girlfriend on the city's edge?
Your most memorable day job:
Removing asbestos from a building almost killed me. I quit after two weeks and worked a hot dog vendor instead.
Best/worst advice received:
Put it in my ass - ex-girlfriend. Put it in my ass - ex-girlfriend on messy day.
I would drop everything to play a benefit for:
A no kill animal shelter and a drug-free Robert Downey Jr. No, Really.
What makes you want to take it off and get it on?
What personal trait would make you kick someone out of your band? And have you?
I would never kick anyone out of bed if they were willing to sleep with me.
When I think of Canada I think:
The Leafs and Don cherry, SCTV, Cronenberg, Breakfast at the husky, Shatner and how
Canada has the most talented musicians, comedians and hockey players. We rule!
Music and sex: Is there a difference? Why?
The impact of great music can last a lifetime. The impact of great sex lasts until I'm in the bathroom wiping my dick off.
Strangest brush with celebrity:
Meeting Moe Berg in 7-11 while he was devouring a "Big Bite." Man, that bastard likes cheese.
What does your mom wish you were doing instead?
Exploiting/nurturing my creative side instead of being a bottom feeder like everyone else.
