The Inquisition - TRIGGER EFFECT

The first time I heard about Trigger Effect, Kurt had mentioned them to me in passing. Next thing I know, we get a show offer with them. They thoroughly rocked the shit out of the place. They are gearing up for a tour of Europe in March. Nick sat down and spent some time seriously contemplating the whips and iron spikes of The Inquisition - Mr. Mogul

History in Their Words:
In keeping with their mystique, Trigger Effect have supplied no history. They just seem to exist. Very Zen.

The Inquisition:

1. Why are you in a band?

I'm in it for the chicks, cheese and crackers. also because its a good excuse to not work.

2. Do you consider your band successful?
Extremely successful. We're like moguls of audio real estate. I eat chicken dinner off a naked 10-year olds back every night.

3. What are you currently listening to?
The coasters. They are the best band ever. They knuckle your head before you count to fauwah.

4. Who are your primary musical influences and do you think they are obvious?
For me personally, bro, me I'm like a mix of the fashion sensibilities of Michael Jackson, the luck and charm of Gloria Ramirez and the vocal precision of tiny Tim. I think it shows. The rest of the guys are equally influenced by equal parts stupid and ugly. Duh.

5. What other band(s) are out there that we should be listening to?
The coasters, M.I.A., Dion and the Belmonts and megalomaniac by KMFDM. Make me a mashup. Oh, and Nazareth. Fucking Nazareth, man.

6. As a band, what was your best show/experience yet?
Maybe that time we circled the wagons with Death Virginia in Wasaga Beach, or that time we played 45 shows in 48 days and drank way more than 1000 beers between Quebec and California, or that time i farted at a waitress.

7. What was your worst show/experience?
Either that time i snapped my tooth in half at LBH, or that time we drove 24 hours straight home from thunder bay in the winter with no heat. Or all those times i ate too much rageohol and told everyone i hated them.

8. What's your writing process like?
Pat comes up with a bunch of parts like "chaggadagameedlooo..." and everyone's like shut up pat and then Sergio thinks up a bit like "brrrrrrrrrrogodogodogodogodogodo" and everyone's like what the fuck was that then i bring in a badangdang that's all like "raaaaahhhmanamanamanahooooeee" and everyone's like meuhhhhhhh then Jordan busts out a little "looodiloodidodilooo" and everyone's like who the fuck is Jordan and then mike makes a bunch of huffing sounds with his stupid fat mouth. At some point we do it all at the same time, and then other people call it music.

9. Do you see yourselves still doing this in 10 years? Why?
No way. Our innate talents will be so valuable and we ourselves will be so internationally influential by that time that we won't be permitted to even consider making music anymore. If we did there would be a nuclear holocaust over who gets the distro license and publishing. In ten years we will only be allowed to hang out in our very specifically shaped, very luxurious , and of course very technologically advanced Manoir Turbo. I'll be on the roof of wing Skinfried sipping whiskey sours with my various pet lemurs.

10. Are there any shows or releases you want to pimp?
yes. we're releasing a split vinyl EP real soon... like REAL SOON and we're going to commit savagery on like 10 european countries in march. blap. Booya.
