CLOTHING: "I got my furry zebra pants years ago at a shop on Mount Royal in Montreal for about $70. The black leather belt was made by Aslan Leather (www.aslanleather. com, 416-306-0462) and was a barter for photography and graphic design. In honour of my gig at Parliament Hill today I'm wearing a $20 T-shirt I got at the anarchist bookstore in Amsterdam. My glasses were $30 from Get Out Side (437 Queen West, 416-593-5598). They're good for the stage because the drummer can see my eyes. The black bowling shoes came from a vintage shop in Winnipeg. Sox from Chocky's (352 Queen West, 416-977-1831) for about $4. My chunky watch came from Canadian Watch Imports (233 Spadina, 416-593-1200) and cost $90. I made the beaded bracelets. The woven one was about $5 at Los Incas (370 Bloor West, 416-962-5089). I got the metal one from a vendor at the National Cultural Centre in Accra, Ghana, for about $2. The wooden meditation beads were $3 in Chinatown. My silver rings have many stories, ranging from love in Ireland to gigs in Vancouver and travels in Senegal. The Route 66 necklace came from Little Rickies in NYC and was about $20 U.S."
HAIR: "One of the benefits of being Kelly Clipperton's bass player: he has a side business cutting and colouring at his home studio (416-979-2992). He's a stylin' guy who makes sure to keep his band presentable."
MY STYLE: "A bit of a chameleon, depending on what I'm up to. It's a funky-punky-hippy blend."
INTO:"Bringing joy to this troubled world through music. Playing bass with Evalyn Parry (Guelph's Hillside Festival, July 23-25) and Kelly & the Kellygirls (Pride tour: Ottawa, Montreal, London, various California dates). Playing kamel n'goni with BanjAblaGoni (next gig August 6 at Mitzi's Sister, 1554 Queen West, 416-532-2570). Working up a set of original material with a brand new groove band called Altered States, featuring the illustrious Jenn Moxon on vocals."
