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!
We're gonna spend the last 3 interview ping ponging back and forth from Edmonton to Calgary so let's cruise on down to the YYC. It's Robbie Morön time! (pronounced More-own) Don't call my friend names! He plays bass and sings for Calgary power punkers, The Moröns, and was kind enough to take a slight moment to answer these absurd questions. So don't be a dink and read his responses!
BRUTAL REALITY DIGEST: Identify yourself, your band, and your weapon of choice.
ROBBIE MORÖN: I am the almighty Robbie Morön from the illustrious Moröns and my weapon of choice would be a lightsaber so I could cut fuckers in 2 like a hot knife in butter. Unless you mean, what do I do in the band, then that would be sonic vocal booms... HADOUKEN!
BRD: What is your favourite part of the city/town you live in?
RM: It's convenient since I was born and raised here and as much as I don't really care for it, I don't really care for anywhere else either.
BRD: What is the worst part about the city/town you live in?
RM: Fucking rednecks, alt-right knobs and people that follow Rebelmedia.
BRD: What is your favourite line from the Star Wars saga?
RM: "My friend doesn't like you... I DON'T LIKE YOU EITHER!!!!"
BRD: What is the coolest show your band has played?
RM: Opening up for No Fun at All was a dream for me. Huge fan of those guys for a looooong time and they had never played here before. So my first time finally seeing them and I got to play too... gnarly.
BRD: What is the shittiest or most hilarious show your band has played?
RM: Opening up for Anvil. The sound board was totally destroyed from the night before and therefore our set got cut to a 3rd of what it was supposed to be and... man, I got a lot of stories from that one but I'll save those for the campfire.
BRD: Who do you think is the most underrated band out there?
RM: Fucking Moröns.
BRD: What's your "safety net" stage banter?
RM: Dirty jokes, and if that don't work, I do a pretty mean helicopter.
BRD: If you could be any Pokemon, which one would you fuck? I mean be.
RM: Dude, I'm old. Pokemon got big here when I was like late teens or early twenties. I never gave a fuck and I still don't. Fuck Pikachu and all his little imaginary friends or whatever. Seriously, the only characters I know are Pikachu (obvs) and Squirtle because I thought that was something else completely until I googled it and was very disappointed.
BRD: If your band could tour with any living or dead band in history, who would it be?
RM: The Go Go's. They seemed like a lot of fun AND Belinda Carlisle... yes please :)
