Wolf Parade @ the 2010 Pitchfork Festival (more by Kate Gardiner)
Wolf Parade

Seattle Times: What do you mean in “Yulia” with the lyric “The radio sings a patriot song / it’s the devil that you know”? Are you talking about government propaganda in mainstream pop music?

Dan: Actually that was government propaganda in late-1960s USSR. That song is one of the most topical-fiction songs that I’ve written. I watched this great documentary on the Soviet space program called “The Red Stuff,” and they’re interviewing this woman. I forget her actual name, but for the song I changed her name to Yulia. She’s talking about how her husband was lost in this failed attempt to land a Soviet space capsule on the moon before the Americans. They overshot their orbit, and are presumably still floating in space. She was listening the radio broadcast, and then it cut out. I guess when mission control found out the capsule was a goner, they started playing patriotic music over the radio, and that was the moment she knew her husband was gone. Amazing documentary, totally worth watching. It’s downloadable.

Wolf Parade will head back out on the road this fall. First Europe and then Russia, and then on November 3rd they kick off a North American tour at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. Ogre You Asshole opens and tickets go on sale Friday at noon. Handsome Furs are currently in Asia. All dates below…
