I recently interviewed Fake Shark Real Zombie’s singer/songwriter Kevin Maher, over a plate of nachos and beer, but it wasn’t just any kind of beer. It is our friend Claudia’s secret Mexican beer that you drink with ice and a straw. Very yummy..and if you ask her nicely she might make you one too…
So a little bit about Kevin and Fake Shark Real Zombie, Kevin is one of the founding members of Fake Shark-Real Zombie, a band that started back in October 2005. FSRZ’s debut album Zebra! Zebra! was released in April 2007 and their second, Meeting People Is Terrible, was released in 2009 and there is currently new Fake Shark album in the works.
Fake Shark-Real Zombie have toured with artists such as Mindless Self Indulgence, Klaxons, Hot Hot Heat, Brokencyde, The Birthday Massacre, Jeffree Star and Test Icicles among others. Kevin plays and works as a producer with numerous bands including Run with the Herd and Jakalope to name a few.
They are currently in Vanmusic’s top 20 Vancouver bands because they are so fucking good and they deserve to be.
Enjoy the interview!
PS— Thanks Claudia for filming! And of course the brilliant beer and vegan nachos!
