Lots of bands have to eat lots of crud on their way up the ladder, but the way Chad Wolf tells it, the recording of his band’s Coming To Terms contained a bit more squalor than he would have preferred. Check the above interview with Carolina Liar‘s singer; maybe the band should have done a Pied Piper thing to rid its studio of rodents.
Coming To Terms is impressive, the key reason Carolina Liar has become one of VH1’s You Oughta Know groups. As many people know these days, the disc’s “Show Me What I’m Looking For” was used in The Hills, and that step towards success is the reason that Wolf no longer has to clean Hollywood toilets in exchange for studio time (or dress up in a weasel costume as he mentions in the clip).
We also spoke to Wolf about his favorite videos. “My Playlist” finds him telling us why he likes everything from the blinking lights in The Shins? “Sleeping Lessons? to the Queens of the Stone Age‘s comic book style imagery. Come to hear him discuss the visuals, but stay to see him reveal memories from his first encounter with one of The Cure?s spooky clips. Stick around long enough and you’ll even get to hear him explain an alarming in-flight experience he shared with a member of the Foo Fighters!
