Interview: The Restarts

This interview conducted last summer when the RESTARTS were here on tour around the “Outsider” release. The band had a pretty hectic schedule, but agreed to play on the day they flew in. They had been up for more than twenty four hours and were exhausted but carried on nonetheless. The interview was transcribed by Jennifer Stacey.

Thanks very much for staying so late with us and especially for coming in after flying all day. Introduce yourselves and tell us what you do in the band.
Kieran (K): I’m Kieran. I sing and play bass.
Robin (R): I’m Robin. I sing a bit and play guitar.
Darragh (D): I’m Darragh. I play drums and sing a bit.
How long have the RESTARTS been around for?
K: We formed in ’95... so that is... makes it now 12-13 years. Robin is the most recent edition.
R: I joined in 2003.
How did the RESTARTS form? I have read the thing on your website, but like how did you really form? You talk about it being a convergence. What does that mean?
D: Well... we just used to drink together.
K: I moved to England in ’88 and I had met Darragh briefly. Then I went back to Toronto and then back to the UK. After being in ARMED AND HAMMERED I knew that I wanted to keep playing in a band. I knew that Darragh played drums.
D: I tried to.
K: I am not sure how it really came about. We just said “Yeah let’s do a band.” Then we needed a guitarist and that was it. We just started recording things in the bedroom on cassette tapes and stuff.
D: Did we? (laughter)
Kieran, didn’t you initially move to the U.K. to be in a band?
K: I didn’t know that I wanted to be in a band. ARMED AND HAMMERED needed a bass player. Allegedly the bass is the easiest instrument to play so I was like “Yeah, I’ll try that”. Then I got the bug. So when I decided to move back to the U.K. I had no other agenda so I said “Let’s start a band” and I think Darragh was thinking the same thing.
D: Yeah. I had just got out of DETOX.
Did you have an idea in mind what kind of band you wanted it to be?
K: I think it was a reflection of the scene we were hanging out in at the time. There were lots of squat gigs and it was pretty nihilistic at the time. The early recordings were lots of songs about alcohol and desperation. It was pretty negative, but we used it as a cathartic way of venting frustration. Not so much the same now. We have expanded in different areas.
Darragh were you in a band previous to the RESTARTS ?
D: Yeah... DETOX and another called MAD MAC AND THE POLAR BEARS. That was a brilliant band. Sadly a couple people died and that was that.
Robin, were you in any previous bands?
R: Yeah: I was in UTRECHT 4:01 in Holland where I was squatting before I moved to London. I was in a band called DISGRACE which was good fun. I learned a lot. I was born in Holland and moved to London in 1998 when I was 18. I play in the SHORT BUS WINDOW LICKERS. I think Darragh was playing drums with them and that is how I found out that the RESTARTS were looking for a guitar player. When I initially joined the RESTARTS it was only going to be for the European tour and ended up staying in the band. They had initially just asked me for the tour... we were practicing in Clapton was it?
K: We kept asking you because we wanted you but you kept saying that you couldn’t solo. Well, now you can! (laughter)
Have you had other guitarists? Didn’t you have the guy from the UK SUBS at one point?
K: Yeah. Mik Useless was our initial guitarist and guess he had just had enough. I think he was more into metal. His previous band COITUS was more that UK crust style and when we started banging out a few ska songs he begrudgingly played them. It was all amicable when he decided to leave. At that point we were on the search for a new guitarist. I was living with Alan who plays for the UK SUBS and so we got him to do the recording. He played two or three shows and he had too much commitment with the UK SUBS. And then we got Robin he learned the set in like two weeks before this tour.
R: I fucked up the first two gigs though. The first gig in Potsdam I started playing different songs, I couldn’t keep them apart.
K: Did you? I don’t remember.
R: That’s cause your getting old.
K: Yeah. Robin is the young spirit in the band.
R: If you think 28 is young then it probably says how old you are.
Where does the name the RESTARTS come from?
K: Well at the time most people were signing on Welfare benefits and the government in England had launched a program, similar to what they do in Canada, a program to motivate people to get off the benefits and so they had this program called Restart. So the worst thing you wanted to get was a letter through the post saying ... ‘we’ve booked you a Restart interview’. I was all about them saying that you had become a drain on the system and they want to teach you how to sit up properly and attend a job interview and write a resume. None of us had any interest in doing that at the time, so... we just kinda decided one night at a party that we should call ourselves the RESTARTS ‘cause we were all getting Restart letters.
Who do you consider influences on the band?
K: What are the bands that influence us?
R: It is such a wide gamut.
When I listen I here 999, the ADICTS, DOA, SUBHUMANS (UK). I mean I am not sure if I am even getting this right...
R: Yeah: it is a shitload of bands: UK and American punk.
K: There is a ska influence too. All three of us have always written whether it was Mick or Robin we would all sort of go home and write our own songs and then bring them to the band practice. So there were a lot of different influences. Like Mick would sort of present a more metal song and Darragh was more into the ’77 style rock/punk and I like ska and Robin does more power chord like POISON IDEA style songs. We end up with this amalgamation of different styles.
Sometimes that can be really disastrous, but I think that in your case it really works. It sounds like a cohesive sound. It is not generic. You are not pulling from a retro or nostalgia thing. You are taking an old sound and developing it. Where does the idea for the PIONEERS cover come from? The chorus: “Everyday things are getting worse”... it reminds me of the central point of Noami Klein’s book “Shock Doctrine” things for everyday people just keep getting worse.
D: I think I suggested that. I was listening to a lot of old school Jamaican ska at the time. I love that stuff: and when I heard that song it was so happy sounding but the lyrics were so fucking real.
R: You came up with the “Big Rock Candy Mountain” cover. Was that the period when you were listening to American.
D: Yeah. I was listening to a lot of country and old folk. American shit.
K: Today I ran into Al Ridley and he was telling me that he’s obsessed with that song and apparently he has an LP compilation of all different bands doing that. I didn’t realise that there were that many bands doing it and he said that there are something like 15-20. All different lyrics. If you Google it you can find tons of information.
D: Yeah there’s like a missing verse or something.
K: It is actually quite a deep song.
I don’t know the song. What is it about?
K: It was written around the time of the Depression in America and Hobos were jumping on trains and train hopping got big. People were looking for something better, you know, work and just going from one town to another. Then this kind of fantasy came about where there is some mountain somewhere where there are no police and the streams are alcohol and cigarettes grow on trees and there is free money everywhere. Its kinda like a bum’s paradise. So, obviously if you are living through hard times that fantasy is appealing. Apparently, there is a lot written about it. There is supposedly a missing verse when he gets to the “Big Rock Candy Mountain”. It is a bit of an anti-climax because if you don’t have the desire or yearning to get somewhere then once you’ve got them there is no point to living.
I would like to ask you a bit more about your influences. If you could limit your record collection to five punk releases what would they be? And to make it a bit tougher I want you to do it as a band.
D: As a band? Ooohh... One would have to be “Never Mind the Bullocks”.
K: Yeah that would be one of mine.
D: All time favourite or that are important for the band?
K: All time favourite.
D: “Inflammable Material”.
K: “Feel the Darkness”. DEAD KENNEDY’s “Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables”, DOA for me but to pin it to one album is hard.
D: “Bloodied But Unbowed”
K: DOA, definitely for me.
K: I like TURBONEGRO, but I don’t think it is a direct influence on the music we write.
D: DISCHARGE. The whole D-beat thing
K: “Hectic” by OPERATION IVY that just encapsulates the punk/ska that we like. It is dirty sounding ska. We don’t really like what the ska movement has evolved into. Very clean like middle-class American kids would like. That whole scene is not what we aspire to. We all love ska-punk.
Do you all take turns writing lyrics? Is there a principal song writer?
K: No. In a way I would like to collaborate more, but we don’t. We bring to the table a complete song each. Pretty any much any song one of us is singing we have written. We do throw ideas around though.
R: The last album we were a bit more of that. We certainly tried.
K: Yeah. We did collaborate more.
What are some of the things you write about? I noticed on the last album that there were quite a few songs about the environment. Was that intentional?
D: I think when the last album “System Error” came out the internet was all over the place and the previous one was four years before that. Then the whole global warming issue came up and it was there all the time but it was really brought to people’s attention and people were trying to ignore it and I guess that’s the reason.
You were reacting to people trying to ignore it.
K: Yeah it wasn’t like a conscious decision. What happens with us is that we write but we write about what is topical at the time and what people are discussing and thinking about. With “System Error” some songs were written about internet and technology. It wasn’t a plan but that ended up being the theme of the album. And then with “Outsider”, Robin came up with “No Escape” and I did “Koyaanisqatsi” and then Darragh brought forth “Cluster Bomb” which is a social commentary on the arms trade and it sort of culminated in one theme.
Can we go through some of the songs? I wanted to ask about “Intelligent Design”. I know because of the things coming up in US politics with the Religious Right and Intelligent Design, is it a big thing in the U.K.?
K: Well, it was covered in the news and I saw the news coverage of what was going on in Dover, Pennsylvania where they voted Intelligent Design out and I was just so shocked that Pat Roberts was given a prime time slot on CNN and he just condemned the whole state of Pennsylvania and was basically threatening them with religion saying “You voted God out of your state’ and this was right after the New Orleans hurricane thing. And he was pretty much saying that if some natural disaster happens in your state don’t look to God for help. He was threatening them with natural disaster because they voted Intelligent Design out of the school system. If you want to teach theology then go ahead, but don’t teach it as science because it is something else entirely. And then it came up that something similar was happening in the U.K. It is a small number and mostly private schools, but they are basically teaching Creationism in science class saying that the Earth is only 10,000 years old and that there is an Intelligent Designer controlling the whole evolutionary process.
D: It is widely discredited now.
K: But the Christian Right are still backing it.
Have you seen the film Jesus Camp? I was just thinking about the way that the Religious Right prey on kids.
D: It’s quite systematic, isn’t it?
If you want to talk about child soldiers, they are just breeding these kids to be an army of God. Teaching them religious vigilantism and then blaming it on Islam. Was the song “Koyaanisqatsi”, was that based on the film? It is the Hopi term for life out of balance, right?
K: Yeah, because I saw the film, downloaded it and it is such a powerful film with no dialogue, just images and then the one statement at the end.
Have you seen the two follow-ups?
K: I have watched parts of the 2nd and it wasn’t as good. I have got the 3rd but haven’t watched it yet. The first is really enough for me. It is so relevant today and it was made...
Was the idea to get at the concept of the film or to highlight the film itself maybe?
K: It was to highlight the film, but to tell it in a really simple, aggressive, D-Beat way. To me early D-beat, like DISCHARGE stuff, is just so powerful and I wanted to make a really simple song...
Yeah, based on haikus, I mean DISCHARGE basically wrote haikus, really short and straight to the point.
K: Yeah, exactly.
O.K. ‘Bolloxology’. What is this one?
D: It is something my Dad used to say all the time. Whenever he had something he didn’t like or disagreed with he said “bolloxology” I just love that word. I use it as a punk lyric all the time and decided to make a song out of it.
Do you mind if I adopt it and start using it? I just love it.
R: Yeah dad would have loved that that is what it is for.
So it is kinda like a bullshit detector?
R: Yeah, totally.
“Running out of Time” ?
K: Again, it is the same concept. That song was really driven by the riff and I wanted it to fall along the same sort of environmental theme. It is that we are always in such a fucking hurry to get somewhere and there is never enough time for anything. The way technology is moving, having to consume daily... we just need to slow down. Everything... work related or even entertainment...
Even leisure or communicating...
K: Yeah, it is like it’s a job... whether you’re doing emails or these social sites.
Just to meet up and have a good time, it’s like we are killing ourselves to do it. It is pretty ludicrous. There is also a song called “Job Club” and a clip off a snitch line. Is that from the same program that the RESTARTS get their name from?
K: So what happens sometimes is that people will sign on to the dole and then... like living on the dole gives you the most minimum amount of money you could possibly live on. Politician’s are always trying to live on the amount a person would get on the dole for a week to try and prove that it is not enough. So, what happens is many people sign on to the dole and then work under the table. And what these snitch campaigns are saying is like ‘You know your neighbour is on the dole, but you see him going to work. Give us a ring and we’ll charge him with fraudulent receipt of benefits...’ They still do it. Instead of looking at why some people are...It is not greed or anything...some people are just caught in that gap.
Can you single out a RESTARTS song from a lyrical stand point and tell me why you like it?
D: I think one would be Kieran`s one “Enemy’s Enemy”. “Enemy’s enemy one step ahead of me”. I think it is a great little expression and it makes a point about Bush and how to use the Al Qaeda against the Russians in Afghanistan.
In Italy there was a campaign used by the Left to counter the Right, and I can`t remember the exact phraseology but there was a similar thing like: Keep one eye closed but one eye open type of thing.
R: Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer type thing. “On to you” is another one. Maybe I am just over paranoid but like I just really, you know you have the Oyster Card along and it is a card that wherever you go on public transport everything will be recorded. Where you go, when you got on, what type of transport you take.
K: It is like a swipe card system.
R: I just refuse to get it and they try to force you into a corner to get it by removing all other options. It is little things like that. If the power falls into the wrong hands, well it already is in the wrong hands, but if it gets worse they can just check up on you and every detail of your life. These cards are becoming more and more common. The global consumer surveillance system is very scary.
K: The song “XQ 28” is about homophobia within institutions and society.
XQ 28. What is that?
K: It was this research that was funded to try and find the ‘gay gene’. I found that really dicey and the motivation behind that I found offensive. They came up with this theory that they found this X chromosome and that could prove that people were gay and they could now do tests on people.
Similar to eugenics?
K: Yeah: exactly. I kind of made this imaginary Orwellian scenario which was loosely based on films like “Gattaca” where they are genetically profiling babies before they are created to make designer babies.
Can you give us the discography of your releases?
K: “Job Club Demo” - 11 songs. And from that we took four songs and released the 1st 7”, “Frustration”. Then we did another recording and released it as a 7” called “Just Gets Worse”. Those were both on Blind Destruction out of Bristol. Then we did a split LP.
Who does that label?
K: It used to be run by a guy named Pete Rose who played in a band called SPITE at the time and then he went on to play guitar for ICONS OF FILTH up until their demise and the label got passed through a few different hands and I think it ended up in the hands of some guys who played with IN THE SHIT and I don’t know if it still going. I am not sure they were continuing to press 7”s.
Is that what lead to “Actively Seeking Work”?
K: Yeah so then we decided to put all the early stuff ... well that label was passing through so many hands that is was kinda hard to keep track of who was actually running it to get new pressings. Then with the whole digital age happening... people still like 7” but we thought people would like to have that on just one digital package. Then we did a split LP with ZERO TOLERANCE who was a local Oi band we used to play with. ZERO TOLERANCE split up, the singer died sadly. Rejected Records from Ireland re-did the “State Rape” recordings as a CD with FLEAS AND LICE.
FLEAS AND LICE from Ireland or from Belgium?
K: From Holland.
D: Was that on vinyl?
K: It only came out on CD with FLEAS AND LICE. Then came...
R: “Slumworld” and split 7” with BROKEN.
K: Our side was called “Your World” and those songs were taken from the “Slumworld” recordings.
Were they extra songs or did they also appear on the...
K: They ended up on the “Slumworld” release, but with that recording we weren’t happy with it. We were sort of flailing at the time trying to decide whether to call it quits and we sat on it for three years and the Active Distribution.
D: Nah... it wasn’t three years.
K: It was because 1998 was the recording and 2000 was the...
I think that’s right because I have a copy of that out on Malarie which is in the Czech Republic.
D: When did the LEGACY OF BIGOTRY 7” come out then? The split with LEFT FOR DEAD? Was that before “Slumworld” ?
K: Well yeah. That was in the same time. So the recording was done in 1998 and then between 1998 and 2001 or 2002 we kinda farmed out a few songs. One was for the split with LEFT FOR DEAD from Hastings, England and the other was with the “Your World” split with BROKEN. Then came “System Error” and now “Outsider”.
One of them got released on Havoc, right?
K: For the 2004 tour in America, Havoc did a co-release with Active.
Are they interested in doing anything else with you guys?
K: I have talked with Felix but he is so busy and maxed out financially. So we looked to Bill from Rodent Popsicle in Boston and he is doing the “Ousider” release.
Is that vinyl?
K: He has done both vinyl and CD.
That’s good. Is that out now?
K: Yup.
I wanted to ask about the “Outsider” release. First off, I want to go back to the Job Club: you were talking about how impressed the engineer was. That you didn’t waste any time. You recorded and mixed it in two days?
K: It was pretty fast. We did all the tracks and music was down in two days and then we did the vocals in one day or something?
D: “Job Club”? We recorded and mixed that in two days.
R: Was that a live recording or separate tracks?
D: No... we did all the songs live and the vocals later. All in one day. The next day we fucking mixed it up.
Well you know with punk bands the energy that comes from live sound is often lost in studios, so I think by not frittering around with it, maybe that is a better approach. There is a band recently from Sweden called KVORTERINGEN whose members are in really prolific crust bands. They formed this side project to not fuck around and to just do something really quickly and all their recordings are amazing like that. So... my question is how long did it take to record “Outsider”? Is the philosophy still the same?
K-R-D: No. It was totally different.
D: Actually, it was your first album recording because he had this whole portal recording disk. So it was kinda...
You did it yourself?
D-K: Yeah.
R: And it was the first time for him to do a full album properly and release it. We had to rent a room that wasn’t finished and we just kept going. Sometimes we fucked it all up and you know we didn’t have some setting s right. You know we were learning as we went along, but I guess it went quite fast I think.
K: But we spanned it out over a longer time.
D: We did a demo first... so we demoed the songs and then we went back and re-recorded the whole thing.
R: It was seven months in total.
D: When you have your own mixing disk you are not paying an engineer so you can take your time.
R: We didn’t have a deadline like going on tour or something.
D: Well, we missed that! (laughter)
K: We went on tour without the new CD!
Were any of you other releases self-released?
K: Most of our other stuff was on Active Distribution an Anarchist distro in London.
Do they actually press it or just distribute it?
K: It is more like a collaboration. I would supply the artwork and the box design/layout and then they would put up the money for the release. We would get a percentage of the pressing and then they would distribute.
Have you got much feedback on “Outsider” yet?
K: It has got some reviews, but not a huge.
Still early days yet?
R: We didn’t really promote it...
K: Dirty Faces is distributing it in Germany and throughout Europe and he has sent out 30-40 and some were sent to MRR, but they haven’t reviewed it yet.
You are doing a North American tour now, what are the band’s plans after?
D: More gigs... probably Japan
K: Japan is the ultimate goal.
Are you writing new stuff since Outsider?
K: We’ve actually sorta been going off on personal projects: Darragh has a side project: I am doing some electronic stuff and Robin has got his other band. Once we kinda put all this effort to put “Outsider” out and gig it... we are putting that stuff aside a bit let it mature and then get back to it.
How can people get in touch with the band?
K: Our e-mail is, our website is, and our myspace is www.myspace/therestarts.

The 12” represents the band's sixth release. It came out in 2008 on Deranged Records. One of the reasons why the band did a 12" is because it is the loudest format you can get for vinyl. Four songs split among two sides. The grooves can be wide and as a consequence loud. The band also complained that this record cost a lot and believes they are still paying for the recording costs on this one. As a Tranzmitors fan I would have to say it was worth the investment. The opening song "Live a Little More" starts out with a lyric that reminds me of the Jam's "The Bitterest Pill" but turns into a song about making the most out of life.

"Just the Other Day" is my favourite from this release. Jeff tells me ths song is about the best dressed man who he would see at the Roma coffee shop in Vancouver. This reminds me of the more upbeat Cure songs. "Who’s Gonna Tell Mary?" borrows from the English Beat and XTC as wel as the Manchester pop scene. The song is a predicament about a guy who falls in love with what sounds like his girlfriend's sister. Yikes. Once again the Tranzmitors deliver the goods.

Interview with Cleave Anderson

Cleave Anderson started off playing in the BATTERED WIVES, which is a band that plays a pretty important role in the ’77 scene. From there Cleave joined the WAY OUTS who released an ep. Then came TYRANNA, the SHARKS and BLUE RODEO. This interview was conducted live on CIUT on May 4th, 2008.

When the ’77 punk resurgence started up Cleave was in the re-incarnated VILETONES. And you are also in the SCREWED who supports every Last Pogo reunion that has taken place in the city. It’s an honour to have you in on the show tonight.

Cleave Anderson is someone who has been a part of the Toronto punk scene long before there was a scene. He came in to the radio show and spun a few records. Here is an interview interspersed with discussions around the music programmed.

What was that ?
That was “Everybody Loves a Loser” and that was one of Jasper’s songs. He made references to Charlie Chaplin who was one of his heroes. You know that silent movie goofiness. You know the pathetic loser. Hitler is mentioned and stuff.
That’s why there is the reference to Hitler.
Those were two different characters of Chaplin’s. That was recorded off the radio for those who know there old school local history.
That was recorded off the radio ?
Yeah that was a radio broadcast that had been done. I didn’t have it. Ross Taylor, a friend of mine, many years later who took a lot of the photos. He and Don Pyle and Rodney Bowes are the three photographers that documented that time. Ross who I know now said ‘I got this BATTERED WIVES cassette.’ It was just a cassette he recorded off the radio and gave it to me and I put it on a CD.
What was this played on initially ? What radio station was it on ?
It was a CHUM FM broadcast.
That’s a big change I guess. They used to do some local bands. We had actually gotten fairly big and I think it was mostly because we were getting publicity because there was a group of women called “Women Against Violence Against Women” who protested us using the name BATTERED WIVES. There was all these protests. We were in the news a lot. It was actually after the fact our manager who had actually called up the organization. They didn’t know anything about us or care for that matter. He said ‘What do you think ? There is this band calling themselves the BATTERED WIVES. Doesn’t this upset you? Aren’t they maybe trivializing an important issue ?’ And they go ‘Of course they are’. Anyways we always felt we did our little bit for the Women’s movement to give a forum for discussion.
For sure. It was a well placed call.
That was sort of a swept under the carpet kind of issue back then.
I also understand that the logo had something to do with it.
Oh the logo. Well the logo was doctored up to keep the momentum going. I had to leave the band. I couldn’t stand it.
I was going to ask you….I mean there was a lot of controversy. Again I think “Uganda Stomp” had some controversy.
Well yeah there was genocide involved. That’s not really funny. This was when Idi Amin was doing his stuff.
How long was the band around for ?
It got going around the middle of ’77. I quit at the end of ’78. We got too much like big rock stars. We toured across Canada with ELVIS COSTELLO. There was a fair amount of controversy. We had to change our name. We were called BATTERED WIVES but we got kicked off of several of the venues during that tour until we agreed to change our name to the WIVES.
So it happened on the tour.
Yeah before the tour.
I thought it was some sort of label pressure.
We were starting to be billed as the WIVES on the tour. We went back to BATTERED WIVES, but their next album was released under the name of the WIVES. We were billed as the WIVES a couple of times on tour but as soon as we went on stage Toby would walk up to the microphone and the first thing he would shout out was ‘What’s our name ?’ and everybody would go ‘BATTERED WIVES.’ ‘Fuckin’ right’ and then we would kick into our first song.
So the crowd were in on it.
Yeah so it was just taking advantage of the situation. It was the same kind of philosophy that Malcolm McLaren applied. How can we take advantage of this name BATTERED WIVES so the obvious thing to do was call up the people who would get most upset with us.
So you were on this recording ?
And the album that we played ?
Yeah that was our album.
And the live one too.
Yeah I played on the live one.
How many others were you on ?
Just that one.
Three of these songs were live on CHUM FM or all of it ?
Three of the songs we played but there is a whole night’s worth of stuff. They played these things on Sunday night live from somewhere. I remember hearing MINK DE VILLE on there and it was fantastic. ELVIS COSTELLO did one.
What was ELVIS COSTELLO like ?
He didn’t talk to us. He was reclusive. He would record every night and then go into his hotel room, but the ATTRACTIONS …. we would have fun actually because we were playing these concert halls like soft cedar venues like the O’Keefe Centre more or less across Canada. So the shows were at 8:00pm. We would play this twenty five minute set and I would just sit on the side of the stage because the ATTRACTIONS were just a fabulous band. Pete Thomas was a wonderful drummer. I was just have my eyes glued on him. The whole night was over at ten and we would go into town as the new wave contingent and every town had a little new wave bar and we would go in it. So the band was great. The three guys would go with us but Elvis was …. We were getting a lot of publicity on it and he wasn’t that happy with the way things were going. I don’t think he was happy that they had chosen us to get on the bill. Maybe I am rationalizing it because I didn’t get to meet him or anything.
But that makes sense out of it all.
Yeah well he had purposely made a statement to avoid the United States. He was going to come to Canada to play.
Oh really ?
Yeah. I don’t know what the premise was exactly but American culture, he wanted to avoid it. He wanted to come here to the colony and to Britain. And I will tell you that I know that those guys were shocked. They were in these tour buses and they had no idea it was going to take that long.
Was that around the time of “Heat Wave” ?
It was before “Heat Wave”. “Heat Wave” was 1980. this was ’78. It was his first time in north America. I still have the t-shirt. It was the “Wake Up Canada” tour. It would be like twenty hours from Regina to Saskatoon and they were like ‘okay what have we got ourselves into ?’ They were not used to that sort of stuff. I left soon after the tour because we were too much like rock stars and I thought I would go back to my old Postie job and do that.
So what happened after that ? Was it the WAY OUTS who were next ?
Well I joined TYRANNA pretty much right after and the WAY OUTS were during TYRANNA.
I used to be a dj at CHRY and I remember seeing the WAY OUTS ep up there.
Well I wasn’t actually a member at first. I was taken on to do the recording.
Well tell us how did TYRANNA form ? And who was in TYRANNA ?
Once again I wasn’t the original drummer. I think TYRANNA did three or four shows at the Turning Point before that. It was kind of short lived. Rabies who was the singer. Vera Sky was her real name and Johnny Bubblegum the bass player wanted to carry on as TYRANNA and the other people didn’t. It was at the Last Pogo, the end of December in ’78. It was the first and second of December and I was there just hanging out and I had just quit BATTERED WIVES and I got several offers that night to hang out at the Horseshoe. People looking for drummers. Rabies had come up to me and she got my number and called me the next day and said ‘I want you to hear what we have recorded.’ Actually what we are going to listen to here are a couple of songs the original band that I don’t play on. Three of the songs I play on tow of them I don’t and it is the original band. It is what I listened to, what she played for me. This sounds like what I want to do. So I went with TYRANNA. That was an action packed year. It was a band that started at the beginning of the year and ended at the end of the year.
So what are we going to hear here ?
The first song we are going to hear is “Back Off baby.” It is on the “No Pedestrians” compilation album, but it was kind of a butchered, I felt, version of it. Are you familiar with the “No Pedestrians” record as a compilation of local ? You know ZERO4 is on it and some other local punk bands. It is one of the few compilations from the 70’s. The next one is recorded live at the Edge. It is another New Year’s … we seem to have this New Year’s theme going on, but we had played New Year’s Eve in ’78 – ’79, the year after the fire at David’s and we had played on the bill with JAYNE COUNTY AND THE ELECTRIC CHAIRS. They recorded this night and it was going to be the first …. They were going on at midnight and it was going to be the first album of the 80’s was the kind of thinking. So we were the warm up act. It was a great night and everything but the next day the Garys called us up because we were sort of managed by the Garys … we played the Edge quite a bit for those who know the Garys. This is kind of esoteric stuff for anyone who doesn’t know the people.
No. I know the Garys.
They are still going strong.
Well some of the first shows I ever went to were promoted by the Garys. They were bigger shows because I got into it later, but the Garys name were all over the place. CFNY was broadcasting that stuff all the time.
Well anyways one of the Garys called up Rabies and said ‘your equipment is still here, do you want to come and play tonight ? So we went down New Year’s Day hungover and all and it was a small but appreciative crowd. So the second song was recorded live at the Edge that New Year’s Day. One of the last shows we did.
And it makes sense. What are you going to do. You have the day off, you might as well go to a punk show. So is that how you got the recording out of this. Your equipment was there.
Maybe. I don’t know. The sound guy just did it.
Do you think it was the recording from the night show ?
From the following day. That recording is from New Year’s Day. We were in our hungover stupor. It is called “Dying in the Suburbs”. A punk rock cliche I guess.
I think it was my life. It spoke to me.
Me too. I came from the suburbs. I just moved out of there. I was speaking from my own experience. The next song was “Toronto Boys” which was a cover of the VIBRATORS song “London Girls”.
It was just Toronto-ized. TYRANNA-ized.
Right on. Yeah. The next song was “Johnny”, which is the original band had three Johnny’s in it. Our singer came up with the song “Johnny”. The band member’s were always wondering if she was singing about them or the other guy. The last song was “My Neighbour” It was sort of a little pop anthem. So some of these songs we are planning to release on Papa-Down Down Records, which is Tim from Babel Books and Records, his label.
Yeah this is exciting stuff.
Some of this stuff has been mastered and submitted.
Some of these recordings that we just played ?
Two of the songs. Yeah.
Are the other songs re-recorded or other songs ?
No this is just what I grabbed off a CD. Just ones that I chose.
How many recordings did TYRANNA do ? Is there a couple of demo sessions out there ?
There is two demo sessions out there. One by the original band with five songs and the one that we did with five songs and then there was the one recording at the Edge and that is the only documentation of TYRANNA.
Those demoes were recorded in a studio.
Yeah it was a little $5.00 an hour studio in Hamilton. Mickey de Sadist lived around the corner and he came in and sang some background vocals.
That was nice of him.
Yeah, well he was our buddy. We played on the same bill.
It is exciting when your friends get together. You just want to be there, be apart of it. I understand.
TYRANNA was a one year band, kind of. So when did the demos get recorded ?
Well the first one was the year that the band January ’79 right until that New Year’s so I think they played one more show. It went past into January 1980, but two of the songs that were played were towards the end of ’78. Everything else was in ’79.
You guys are about to do a reunion.
We have been rehearsing and we have Zoe of the BAYONETTES singing with us since the original singer is not available. She is doing a great job.
Do you know when the record might be out ? you said there is five songs that are possibly going to be on this. It’s a 7” ? Five songs ?
Well one is thirty three seconds.
That’s okay. That is good. It reminds me of the DEMICS. So roughly ?
Well July.
Are you going to play out around then ?
We are working on getting a date in July to release it. We are going to have a couple of other people on as roster and do it like a label release as well as a record release.
Okay. So it is going to be a bigger thing.
We’re going to try and turn it into a little bit of an event.
I was going to ask you the name TYRANNA, is that just a bastardization of Toronto?
Well no, it’s not actually but I think it came out like that. What it was Vera was a dynamic tall woman who wanted to be the dominant force with a band of guys so she asked her mom ‘I want a word that sounds like Tyrannical but feminine at the same time’ so TYRANNA was the thing and people generally because of Torana said TYRANNA. They played up in when she used to sing she would say “Torana, we got you!” It was her little thing. One of the other things that was interesting about punk rock was that each city had their own …it exploded in these different centres and everybody wanted to be identified with their local scene, but my understanding was that it was something tyrannical yet female.
I wanted to ask you about a photo that I saw that Don Pyle took of TYRANNA in the street. Can you tell me about that photo ? Do you know which one I am talking about ?
Well there was a bunch that he took for us. He didn’t live very far away. We rehearsed at Rabies house and it was in the west end of Toronto around Runnymede Road and Dundas. It was sort of party central. The DEAD BOYS would spend the night there when they were in town often. It was crazy parties. But Don was a friend that lived around the corner not very far away, so he took us over to this Bobby Point area…. Baby Point area. It depends what side of the tracks you were on, but this little neighbourhood that was upper class in the west end of Toronto and is in a little peninsula because the Humber River does bend. A special little peninsula where everybody gets their ravine view of the river. So he took us there where they have these old lamp posts and we were hanging on the lamp posts. Yeah so they have these really ornate that looks like Great Britain or something. He thought this would be a great place to shoot. He took us in there and got those for us.
So the thing that people know you for now is the SCREWED.
Well more than anything else sure.
There is other bands, I mean BLUE RODEO was a pretty big band. We shouldn’t just glaze over that, but
It’s worth glazing over. But the SCREWED, that’s my main project now.
Anytime there is a Last pogo type of event the SCREWED are there. The support band and doing all kinds of things. Tell us about the SCREWED. When did the SCREWED start ?
It was an idea that Steve Koch, who is our guitar player, who also was the longest running member of the VILETONES. He was in the DEMICS as well. HANDSOME NED’s guitar player pretty much the whole time. I had a boxset of CDs called “1, 2, 3, 4 Punk and New Wave, 1976-‘79”. I don’t know if you have ever seen it. It is a five CD series. Basil who is the bass player in BLLUE RODEO gave it to me for my 50th birthday and it was always in my car. And Steve and I were playing in another band and I would always pick him up and we would go to the gig. We would get people listening to these songs. It is a really great collection of songs from mostly around ’77 so we would be listening to these and we thought it would be fun to play these songs. We said it enough times that it became lets just do it. So we asked a couple of people who ended up doing it who was John Borra was is a bass player who was also a member of this band that we were already doing this rootsy stuff with and we got Steve Saint from the SINISTERS. We just wanted to have some fun and play some of the old songs. We started with a handful of songs and then we are learning more of the local stuff now.
I was going to ask you about this. I mean it is fun to play the ones that you grew up listening to but because you are from Toronto it might make some sense to give a little bit of a spotlight on our local scene.
Yeah. We have re-connected with a lot of the old people and we invite them out to play with us and stuff. We’ve had Steven Leckie and Screaming Sam and Johnny from the G RAYS and Gordie and Steve from TEENAGE HEAD played with us. A lot of the B-GIRLS, BATTERED WIVES, some of the DEMICS guys, the DIODES.
Didn’t Cheetah Chrome do something ?
We did a tour with him. Actually we are going to include a song we recorded at Grand Avenue studio. Part of our little stint with him last June. One of the songs that Cheetah wanted to do as well as the ROCKET FROM THE TOMB stuff that he played on and the DEAD BOYS stuff ….
That is an ideal scenario when I think about it. Punk is such a live music. It sounds so much better when you are going at it at a club. If you can go into a studio and record that and capture it…
It’s ideal. So we did a cover of MC5 “Baby Won’t Yah”. A two guitar attack of Cheetah Chrome and Steve Koch. The voice of Cheetah Chrome in the back there. Cheetah was a guy that we had met because he used to stay at the TYRANNA house when the DEAD BOYS were in town. So there was a few parties with Cheetah back in the day. As for the Screwed we wrote an original called “Green Haired Girl” making reference to the Turning Point. It is our guitar player’s re-collection of one particular night.
This is exciting because now you are doing originals.
Yeah. We have three now. There is about eight more ready to go.
How many originals do you have recorded right now ?
That’s the only one we have recorded other than rehearsal tapes.
And eight more to go.
Yeah they are just fun to do. We had no idea. Just for a laugh we were doing these songs and then we started getting together with some people from back in the day and it just keeps going. There are so many great songs to learn and play.
But then they inspire new ones.
Will there be a second CD coming out ? That is my line of questioning. I am always trying to find out if there is new stuff.
What we did is we tried to have a little bit of a concept for the first one. All songs from ’77 and all songs that were standards that people know. We didn’t go for anything obscure although we know a lot of obscure stuff too. And we also know a lot of local stuff. We thought we would save that for next, do the great songs by local bands.
Is that going to be an idea for …
Yeah that’s an idea we have kicked around. That’s not in progress right now because now we have the originals. We are thinking of doing a handful of originals and graet songs from the local bands.
That sort of leads us to the next song we played which was a SECRETS song.
The SECRETS who were three guys who left the VILETONES and John Hamilton of the DIODES. They had a good run and were a ton of fun to see play and had a lot of good songs. We know a couple of theirs and that’s one of them “Suzi Peroxide”.
What are some of the other locals that you cover ?
Recently we have learned “One Foot in the Gutter” by the UGLY. We know a bunch of VILETONES stuff because three of us have played in different versions of the VILETONES. One of them was John our bass player. He did one of the CIUT live recordings. We got to thank you for supporting the old school and allowing us to come in.
That was a great night.
There has been a bunch of great nights. The DIODES and TEENAGE HEAD and a bunch more. God bless Greg Dick for doing his detailed research.
Yeah. And the stories that have been coming out have been just unearthing. It is archeology here. Punk rock archeology. We are all greatful.
We got a good thing going here.
How can people get a copy of the “1977” CD ?
Well it is for sale at a couple of places, but at our gigs is mostly where we sell them. Babel Books & Records on Ossington. Pete has some at his store, Hits and Misses and Bloor Street near Ossington. Grafitti’s in Kensington Market sells them. Rotate This on Queen Street. Pandemonium in the Junction has some of them.
That is right by my house.
You’re in my hood then. Not too far away. Anyway come see us play. We do three sets. We have a repertoire of seventy songs. We don’t let anybody play on the bill with us anymore because we don’t get to play all the songs that we want to play.
