The CMW Questionnaire: Stuck on Planet Earth


stuck on planet earth

As Canadian Music Week (CMW) takes over Toronto this week, we catch up with a number of the festival performers. Here is rock act Stuck on Planet Earth participating in the CMW questionnaire. Click here to find out when they are playing.

RY: An event like Canadian Music Week for my band is all about…

“4am last call…”

RY: When someone in the audience sees your band for the first time, what do you hope their reaction will be?

“To have their faces melt and have piss running down their legs.”

RY: What, when and where was the best show you’ve ever played? What made it so awesome?

“Probably one of the most memorable shows was last September at Riot Fest in Toronto. There was a crazy rainstorm and it was pissing rain in every direction. The stage manager told us that we probably weren’t going to play, but literally five minutes before our set the rain settled.”

RY: What, when and where was the worst/weirdest show you’ve ever played? What made it terrible?

“Worst/weirdest show was probably in Indianapolis – when were put on a full metal bill. I think the promoter thought we were a metal band judging by our name.”

RY: What is the coolest thing fans will be able to find on your merch table?

“Our Snapchat code! We’re really into Snapchat. It’s super personal and has been working really well for our band – it brings fans into our world more than any other form of social media: add us STUCKBAND.”  

RY: When on tour, which do you crave the most? (And why?) Your own bed, your own shower, or a homemade meal?

“We’re pretty resourceful and almost always find time/somewhere to shower. In a weird way, we kind of like sleeping on floors (good for the back ha, ha!) But yeah, we’re Italian so some good homemade Italian food is mostly missed. We also love Caesars and those don’t exist in US bars.”

RY: What is your worst on-tour habit?

“Buying too much beef jerky at American gas stops.”

RY: What is the nerdiest thing about your band that you usually try to keep secret?

“We’re all champs at Super Smash Bros for N64.”

RY: Which song would you love to cover on-stage, but don’t think you’d be able to pull off?

“Prince’s ‘Purple Rain.’”

RY: What makes you most proud of your band?

“That we can go across a continent in a mini van and not kill each other.”
