Gonna hire scientists to teach some planarians how to play violin, break dance, speak French, etc and then have them in my morning smoothie.

I'm sorry to bother you with this, but do you think you'll ever come back to Nelson, BC?
What's that noise at the beginning of Centennial? It sounds like a car backfiring, maybe? Also, what kinds of things are you yelling at the end of La Ferassie, under Dave's lyrics?
Studio door slamming. Chemical Sound (rip), the studio where we did Elephant Shell, had this door that would *never* shut properly. Have you seen “It’s A Wonderful Life”? You know at the end, when he comes home and that piece of the staircase falls off, and he’s just overjoyed? That’s how I felt for years every time that door didn’t shut properly.
I miss that stupid door.
Moved to lake louise, listened to lake of alberta a lot. It got me laid, did you ever expect that album to have that effect?
Why didn’t it do that for me?
Hi Graham! Me and some friends have decided to write and (hopefully) film a movie. The reason I'm telling you this is because we wanted to use the song Cut Cut Paste as a starting point for the plot, and we were just wondering if that would be okay with you and your fellow band members. Also we wanted to use the phrase "Heaven's just for moviemakers" if possible. Just wanted to double check that we weren't breaking laws or anything. Thank you for being awesome!
Oh yeah go for it. If you use the song and then make money or something you’ll probably have to email our management and make it legit, but just mentioning it or using a line or whatever is pretty much fair game as far as I’m aware.
This question is old too so hopefully you’ve already moved forward. I hope it’s going great! Please send me a link to the movie if you get it all together.
Hello! I was wondering if you would share the ukulele chords for "Evening Train from Kingston Station." Love the song!
I don’t have my ukulele with me but iirc it’s C G C Fsus2. I think…
Where can people outside of the US/Canada get your solo full album?
If it isn’t on iTunes, probably just illegally or whatever. There aren’t any plans to do anything overseas with it, so go nuts!
being more worldly than myself, what would you consider to be the best sounding accent? and also, are you aware that not a single one of your song's lyrics contain the word about?
One time I was interviewed by an Australian girl and it was probably the worst interview I’ve ever given because I was so absolutely floored by her voice. Like, I think I fell in love with this random journalist after she said about six words. It was lovely. I’m also in love with the country of Australia in general…
Why did the RAC remix version of Be Good became so popular, even more than the original?
Because RAC is incredible and their remixes generally improve on the original material. Their take on the TPC song Sixties Remake, for example, changed the chord progression in such a way that it basically ruined the original for me, I was so mad that we didn’t come up with that first.
They’re putting together an album, and one of the songs on it was written and sung by Dave. It’s absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to hear the finished version. In fact, I’m going to email them now and ask for it. You guys will love it. I also wrote some lyrics for it, which I’m pretty proud of!
have you considered keeping your mustache? I think it becomes you. keep up the dapper.
I shaved that shit immediately.
how do you like working with hollerado?
I think they’re just fantastic, and they happen to be very dear friends. We haven’t worked together much at all, outside of touring, though Nick and Jake play in a (really great) band called Stella Ella Ola who I’ve done some production work with.
Tokyo and Hollerado just worked out a Christmas cover together for our shows together later this month, and it was blast combining the two. They work in a really different way than we do, but they’re also really similar - both bands speak this kind of unique inner language that only comes from working with people you love for a long time. But we do really different things with it, and putting the two languages together was a lot of fun.
They’re the best.
