Brendan Canning is a founding member of Broken Social Scene and has been a prominent and prolific figure in Canada’s underground music community for over two decades. Since Broken Social Scene went on their most recent hiatus, Canning has kept busy, resurrecting his old pop project Cookie Duster, scoring major Hollywood films like this year’s controversial The Canyons, DJing at the Drake, and, he recently began collaborating on a video game project with David Cronenberg. In October, Canning released You Gots 2 Chill, his second proper solo album on his own Draper Street Records and it’s prompted him to tour across Canada and the U.S. in November and December. Here Brendan and I discuss who has gots 2 chill, EPMD, Beastie Boys, Toronto and Ford Nation, recording mellow songs onto your own voicemail, scoring movies, video games, Lindsay Lohan, the song “However Long,” and more.
