Interview w/ Wolf Of the Chariot
November 01, 2010
Wolf used to love the Boxcar Children. Now he plays bass for the Chariot. The Chariot has a new CD coming out on November 22nd, and a new tour that begins November 12 at the Blue Nile in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Here is what Wolf had to say when I asked about the recent doings of the Chariot and his Halloween costume.
What does the new record sound like? What were you listening to when you were recording?
Long Live is a protest and a celebration. This recording is more dimensional then our last ventures, experimenting with more instruments, time signatures, melodies, and ideas. This is by far our most passionate record. We were listening to a lot of Jon Spencers Blues Explosion, Jack White, Arcade Fire, and Bonzo Dog Band.
What was it like working with producer Matt Goldman again?
I really like Matt Goldman. He gets what we do, and compliments it. He knows more than I'll ever know. About music and everything else in general. I really like the My Epic record he recently produced.
What were you for Halloween?
Me and my lady friend are doing a costume together. I sewed a bunch of stuffed animals on a dress of hers and I'm dressing up with big metal claws on my arms and leg. (Claw machine) People have to pay me 50 cents to see me hug her.
Early library memories?
Very bitter-sweet. I got to play Oregon Trail and read Boxcar Children books but we also had yearbook pictures in there, and I didn't like yearbook pictures. Now I love the library. I read more books than ever since I've been touring! Just read Enders Game by Orson Scott Card.
