Our first Five Questions With today is with Toronto, ON based punk/psychobilly group, The Creepshow. If you’re ready to learn a bit about the band, be sure to read below!
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Sean, I’m the founding member , and double bass player for the Creepshow.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style
We play hi-energy punk rock n roll, with a bit of 50’s rockabilly mixed in. All 5 members are song writers and we all write songs seperately, then bring them to the band where lyrics get added and tweaks are made. Having members in Hamilton, Montreal, Toronto, and Berlin Germany, makes it hard to get everyone in one room, thank god for the Internet!
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
This Friday, October.21st, we head out west on a short Canadian tour, hitting ville Marie pq, Timmins, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Regina, Lethbridge, red deer, Edmonton & end in Calgary for 2 nights at the ship n anchor! We pride ourselves on an exciting , in your face , sweaty live show. We like to get the crowd involved, and sometimes we are know to bring up a fan to sing a song or 2.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
I would say check out “see you in hell” off of our latest album “life after death” or if you are into videos, check out “the Devils son” off the same album. I’d say those songs sum up our sound pretty well.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Right now I’m really digging the new Brutal Youth album. I’d say they’re the best Toronto band going at the moment. Also have SNFU, the dreadnoughts, RULES, a fire next time, the brains and CHUCK COLES on rotation in the van.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
