Catch 22

Interviews | Feb 24th, 2005

I was at the local bookstore recently, and saw a book called Catch 22. Did you guys know about this? I think you should sue the author of the book!
We’re not inclined to sue anyone over anything. However, I’m sure we would win the case. I bet we could even sue those movie people.

Why can’t you guys keep a singer? You guys are like Van Halen, without the spandex.
This is already the worst interview ever! In any case, maybe we’re just not nice people and don’t know it.

What would you do for a Klondike Bar?
I’d probably pay like two dollars Canadian for that.

How does your band contribute to society?
We contribute good times.

Do you think Alan Arkin digs the ska punk of Catch 22?
He just sent me an e-mail that said, “Dinosaur Sounds… is so clever! I can’t wait to hear what your ubergroup comes up with next.”

Who would win in a fight: Sharks or Dinosaurs?
Dinos. No contest, because the dinos aren’t going to jump into the sea or anything. Oh no. The sharks would come to them. And they wouldn’t last too long on land.

How soon will you be dumping Victory for a major since that’s the cool thing to do these days?
I’m not even sure that Victory wants us. What the heck would a major label do for us?

Have you ever considered combining Catch 22 and Streetlight Manifesto? Since you guys sound so similar and then you guys can go and play beautiful bad music together.
*Band didn’t answer…wonder why?*

I guess I’ll be serious for once, how do you think the new album “Dinosaur Sounds” will be perceived by Catch 22 fans?
I think that if they listen to it a couple of times, it will quickly become their new favorite record. And if that doesn’t happen (I admit, it won’t in every case) maybe said fan will be able to appreciate the whole new range of influences which we stopped being scared of.

Every band has a favorite city/state to play in, or at least I think they do, what is your favorite area to play in?
Quebec City!

Now’s the time for some fun 80’s trivia: a) What sitcom was “The Facts of Life” a spin-off of? b) What cartoon featured a boy with a community of tiny people living in his wall? c) What is MacGyver’s first name? d) What was the name of the alien in the
I’m not very good at trivia.

You’re not very good at answering questions either

Which South Park character do you relate to?
What’s South Park?

Plug something, but do it in a creative way.
Roar! Dinosaur Sounds! Roar! Roar!
