To celebrate the arrival of our latest episode of POP Shots, we spoke to Beaver Sheppard of Country about Montreal, the earth and its changing tides.
What’s new and exciting in Country’s world?
Beaver: pre fabricated beats/drugs, Internet/wi-fi, We've gone to the highest level of the Mer KA Ba without meditation at all. Baloney/10ways
Tell us about the first show you played in Montreal.
Beaver: It must of been the POP LOTTERY show. All my other bandmates bowed out, so I asked my girlfriend's roommate to play with me. He played one chord and my mind was blown. I then dumped my girlfriend and phoned my mother. He told me his name was Mr. Lavender. I started folding laundry and had a epiphany from who else but Micheal Jackson. I then went to New Jersey for a conference on that exact topic.
You are seemingly known for your onstage fashion presence— what’s your favourite thing to wear during a show?
Beaver: Black and White...
Blue and White. ...
Kimono-Style Trench Coats...
Track titles like Africa, What You Doing With The Bottled Water? and Money for Cancer suggest you might want to provoke something in your audience— what is that, if anything?
Beaver: Take care of the earth.
How has the music scene changed in Montreal in the time you’ve lived here?
Beaver: People move here to say their from here... get popular and leave. I don't mind.
There's only so much cool to go around.
