Interview: Come Asa Coma

Calm Asa Coma’s Jarrod Sterling and Jeff Desmeules took some time during some time during the interview with the Gauntlet to do some peppy Q and As. Here’s what they said.

Gauntlet: What’s your favourite album right now and in general?

Jarrod Sterling: I went and picked up TV on the Radio[‘s Dear Science] because everyone was talking about it. It was so over-hyped, but it’s actually awesome. For an older album, I’d say Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk.

Jeff Desmeules: The album I’m listening to right now is [Into Your Lungs by] Hey Rosetta. The older album I always love is Queen’s Night at the Opera or Day at the Races.

G: What was the first song you learned how to play on an instrument?

JS: When I was 10, the first song I learned on guitar is by a band called America, “A Horse with No Name.” It had two chords.

JD: Mine was an old Saves The Day song. It was in G, C, D over and over again.

G: What’s some of your favourite gear?

JS: For me, it’s this cymbal I have called Power B. Our guitarist got it for, like, $5. It’s the cheapest cymbal ever made, but we used it all over the album.

JD: I stumbled across this 1968 Fender basement amp beat to hell. We like vintage amps and weird equipment.

G: If you could play a show with any band, who would it be?

JS: If it was back in the day– even though it would be impossible– it would be pretty bad ass to open up for the Beatles on their last concert on the roof.

JD: I’d want to play with Neil Young in his prime. If it were a newer band, I’d say Wintersleep, because they’re kind of on the same page as us.

G: What is your favourite show attire?

JD: I have purple Vans, a v-neck and black jeans.

JS: I pretty much look dirty.

JD: No, you look like you rolled off a New York City subway or something.

JS: Our overall rule is no logos.
