Catching up with Outtacontroller bassist Matt Grace to discuss the holdup and release of the Television Zombie LP, as well as receiving fan mail from the most unexpected of places.
Crossed Wires’ eponymous EP could easily take the cake as the best release to come out of Atlantic Canada this past summer season. This debut offering from the Wires is nothing less than infectious and impressive without even considering the fact that it’s the first release of a project that’s only straddling a mere six months of existence.

The Grubbies’ jam-space is a basement deep in Halifax’s residential north end. The stuffy room is decorated with mattresses propped up against windows, pillows and egg cartons strapped to vents, old coffee cups, tall cans of beer, and coke bottles. Wires hang from the ceiling and cover the floor. It’s not messy, but it’s lived in. And it’s the jam-spot of more than a few local bands; artists like the Saffrons, Walrus, Shadow Folk, Robert Loveless and Scott Nicks practice in the space.

Chris’ uncle came to our show and we stayed at his insane house in some insane Edmonton suburb. Chris’ uncle, a self-proclaimed “grungy motherfucker”, was a big Coach Longlegs supporter who also claims that his Fort Mac work-crew love our song “Give a shit” and often quote the chorus.
At 10:00PM on Thursday, August 14th, 2014, Bar None [164 Water Street, St. John’s, NL] plays host to the opening night of the Shed Island festival, and the first of three jam-packed days of music. For those without a festival pass, a measly ten dollars for the night guarantees a musical bang for your buck.
