Fucked Up – 2008 Tour Dates, label drama, Feist & Chan
by Black Bubblegum
When was the last time you saw these two in the same room together?
So is Fucked Up really fucked up?
Fucked Up: Great question, you are off to a fantastic start.
Did you see my mother's uncel? my grandma said he lives in canada but i think he is just a polish.
Good question - is he lost?
Is feist a real person or it's just Chan Marshall singing in canadian?
She is real - we have met her. She used to crash at our roadies apartment before she was famous. She was also in a punk band (see above, number 7). We are on the same label as Chan Marshall but the boss said we are not allowed to ever meet her because she is crazy.
I also heard you're christmas ep. I have some questions about that:
A/1 how does Nelly Furtado smell?
She did her vocal track for that session in an isolation booth and came too and from the studio in an airplane, and a limo dropped her right into the booth. So we could see her and give her instructions, but we could not smell her or really talk to her, only through a microphone.
A/2 does she snort cocain? She looks like she not but i have this idea that stars are taking all kind of drugs and drinks behind the cameras and papers just because it's so evil to con their catholic fans. I mean i bet homer simpson is a drunk child beater when the cameras don't roll.
Again, we don't know, but I could ask her next time I see her.
More from that great interview, on F'd Up's blog.
When Fucked Up isn't releasing an album, talking about Feist, Cat Power & Nelly Furtado, or doing interviews slagging their former label, the band is scheduling tours... like the one for this fall in the northeast and parts of the midwest. That tour includes a two night stand in NYC with Vivian Girls. The first show is October 15th at Bowery Ballroom (also with Mind Eraser) (on sale 8/8 at noon). The next one is the next night at "Harket Motel".
And in keeping with the F*** theme, F***ed up noted that they'll be traveling (on at least part of the tour) in the same vegetable oil-powered bus that the F*** Yeah Tour used on their month-long trek. F***ed Up are also playing the F*** Yeah Fest in LA. All tour dates below.
The band also recently did a session with CBC Radio 3, which you can stream here.
And Fucked Up had a wee bit of an incident with the fuzz at Culture Shock.
