10 Punks - 10 Questions - Cam Gillies
Welcome to the BRD Original Series - 10 Punks - 10 Questions!
Things have been sleepy in Brutal Land lately but don't even consider fretting because those days are over. We are pleased to present a brand new series that will hopefully bring a small amount of joy to your lives for at least the 10 days and beyond. Resident drunk/brute, Josh Hauta, has harassed 10 of his pals in the music scene with 10 questions and this is the glorious result. So hop into your coziest of PJ pants, grab a Radler, and prepare to be entertained!
This is it! The final interview! Who the hell is this guy? Oh, bam it's Cam! He's from BC but hides out at furniture warehouses in Calgary now. Does he live there? Nobody knows! He does have a guitar though - that much is confirmed - and he uses it in such rock groups as Boo Radley. The best band you've never heard of! Either way, he's hear to tell you about himself so get off Tinder and pay attention!
BRUTAL REALITY DIGEST: Identify yourself, your band, and your weapon of choice.
CAM GILLIES: I'm Cam Gillies and I play guitar and sing in Boo Radley and a big fan of crossbows.
BRD: What is your favourite part of the city/town you live in?
CG: There is always something to do and good bars to get a cold beer at.
BRD: What is the worst part about the city/town you live in?
CG: Calgary Police Service.
BRD: What is your favourite line from the Star Wars saga?
CG: "Now THIS is podracing" -Anakin Skywalker
BRD: What is the coolest show your band has played?
CG: We only got one show in before we got shut down by Covid, so Rockin' 4 Dollar$ at Broken City was a blast.
BRD: What is the shittiest or most hilarious show your band has played?
CG: At the same show we got our set cut short so that was lame.
BRD: Who do you think is the most underrated band out there?
CG: The Lawrence Arms. They've been around for a while but relatively unknown. The way they tell stories in their lyrics is amazing
BRD: What's your "safety net" stage banter?
CG: Just letting telling the crowd to check out our MySpace. Advertise at any chance, you know what I mean?
BRD: If you could be any Pokemon, which one would you fuck? I mean be.
CG: I never got into Pokemon but I'll say detective Pikachu because I'd like to be, or at least bang, Ryan Reynolds
BRD: If your band could tour with any living or dead band in history, who would it be?
CG: It's a real tossup between Green Day in the 90's or Wu Tang Clan.
