The Shell Corporation are performing at Illegal Pete’s South Broadway next Friday, March 7, so we asked them a few questions.
If someone were to buy you a drink at your Illegal Pete’s show, what should that drink be?
Jameson Whiskey or decent local beer. Lager before the show and Ales after.
What is your craziest experience with the band?
One time, at bandcamp…
Seriously though, we’re pretty sedate. Less excitement is better for our hearts and hips.
I guess Sean’s toe nearly coming off in Calgary was pretty exciting. Also, a runaway suitcase down an escalator nearly took Sean out before our first European tour could even start. I guess the lesson is don’t stand too close to Sean.
Marry: Raw Sausage
Fight: The rooster from “Family Guy”, ’cause I got Pete Griffin’s back.
Hi-Five: Raw Sausage, when the officiator says “you may kiss the bride”. I don’t like facial hair.
What is one song that influences your songwriting?
The main problem with punk bands these days is their entire catalog sounds like that “one song” that influenced their songwriting. Branch out, people!
Favorite happy hour (other than Illegal Pete’s)
Dave’s on Third in San Francisco. Perfect place for an after-work pint.
