they're in their late teens, but
fierce, Tool-damaged Victoria rockers Limestone have had big ambitions ever since they began playing together as tweens.
Speaking on behalf of bandmates bassist Chris Sutherland and brother/drummer Adam Sutherland, Limestone singer/guitarist and main songwriter Eric Hogg admits the group has no desire to sweat it out on the indie circuit.
"I don't think we could pass up a deal if one came along," Hogg says. "We're currently recording in the basement onto Adam's computer. It's not quite as good as a professional studio, but it's as good as it gets at this level."
Both he and Adam Sutherland -- who both graduated high school last year -- are taking the year off to focus on the band.
"I began writing songs in grade four," Hogg says. "I picked up guitar in grade five and I couldn't play that well, but I continued writing."
Then he became the right person fooling around at the right time in a music store.
"One day I was playing in a guitar store and somebody heard me and offered to give me lessons for free because he thought I was pretty good. It all just went from there."
