Meet The Band: Blood Rexdale and the Walls Are Blonde

We're pretty excited. The second ever Little Red Umbrella Variety Spectacular is coming up on next week: on Friday, January 20th at the Holy Oak Cafe. We've lined up a night's worth of performances by some of our favourite performers, all free, with 10% of bar sales going to the AIDS Committee of Toronto. There will be magic and storytelling and comedy and music. Which brings us to Blood Rexdale and the Walls Are Blonde. The Toronto band, made up of David Kleiser and a rotating cast of friends, will be playing a set of their washed out, shoegazey songs. And so that you can get to know him a little better in the lead up to event, we got Kleiser to answer some quick questions.

You can scroll down to download some free MP3s off the Blood Rexdale Bandcamp page. And you'll find the Facebook invite to the Variety Spectacular here.

How do you describe your music to someone who hasn't heard you before?
Psychedelic folk

Say, for some strange reason, all the music in the world is going to be destroyed, but you can save all the songs from one decade. Which decade's records would you save?
1870s or 1960s. I simply cannot decide.

If you could open for one current band that you haven't played with before, who would it be?
Sonic Youth.

If you could play one venue you've never played before, what would it be?

Who, in your opinion, has/had the best facial hair of any band ever?
Billy Corgan (hahahaha).

Who was your favourite band (or artist) when you were 12 years old? Do you still like them?
Slipknot, occasionally I'll listen, it's real mood music. A lot of other things survived though, my favourite video games and visual artists mostly: gta 3, Ed Templeton, Sam Keiths "The Maxx".

Let’s say you could pick on film director ever, living or dead, to reflect your musical style by directing a music video for you. Who would be best for it?
Kubrick or Gondry.
