Q&A: The Electric Revival Reveal their Favourite ‘Freaks’


Earlier this month, wailing Alberta rock trio The Electric Revival pushed forward with their third full-the-electric-revivallength studio album, Freaks.

To celebrate the occasion, Riffyou.com caught up with drummer Dallas Lobb to find out who he considers to be some of the biggest ‘freaks’ (by category) in the world. Here’s what he had to say:

Member of The Electric Revival

“Dan, without a doubt. I don’t know anyone else who can drive for 2 days straight, on nothing but coffee, Red Bull, and cigarettes.”


“That Die Antwoord band. Someone showed me a couple videos once…what the hell was that?!”


“Gord Downie. I just recently saw my first Tragically Hip show. Put that guy on a stage in front of a few thousand people, and he’s a total nut job.”


“Buckethead. Nothing about his particular style really. But the guy wears a bucket on his head while he plays. That’s gotta count for something.”


“Any of those rockabilly guys that spin around on a stand up bass.”


“Tom Waits. He’s ‘cookin’ up a Filipino box spring hog.’ Enough said.”


“Steve Buscemi. Look at him. Google ‘buscemieyes.’ You’ll be horrified.”


“Peter Mansbridge. That guy doesn’t age. Freak.”


“An Armadillo. Looks like a rhino had sex with a football.”


“They were all kind of freaks weren’t they? Maybe that one from Jurassic Park that spat the goo all over Newman’s face.”
