Redanda gives you Reverse Tranny Club

Redanda comes to you from Hamilton, Ontario – same great country as house favorites Brother Octopus. They’ve recently released Reverse Tranny Club…give it a listen on Bandcamp. Tell us about yourselves – how did Redanda happen?

Corey: We formed by the fated occurrence of three lads from three different cities attending the same high school. Oh, and one had a younger brother. The rest is history. The name I suppose comes from the lack ability to think of anything clever, only gibberish came out. This band consists of a drummer (Curt), and bassist (Connor), two guitarists (Chris and myself, Corey). I also sing. What is your favorite original song or album to date? Why?

Corey: Of ours? Currently an unreleased one called Full Flux, because it was created spontaneously one morning jam session, when I in particular was very hungover and didn’t feel like playing guitar so I attempted to sing delta blues/muddy waters type vibe over the other threes gnarley riffage. The result is our latest closing song for our live gigs. There’s a wicked drum beat, powerful guitar, and stellar bass. I added harmonica to complete the blues effect. Nothing about the song is blues, though come to think of it…Come check it out. Who are your major influences? What do you take from them? What do you add or do differently?

Corey: Various musical artists, poets, singers, philosophers, activities. I think one can either be literally inspired by something and attempt to use it, modify it, or represent it. Or you can be inspired in a way you do not consciously realize, but it happens. I guess I like the combo. What song do you wish you’d written? How would it sound as performed by you?

Corey: The oldest song in the world. We would convert it into rock & roll, for sure. What does the future hold – is there a particular direction you’d like to take your music?

Corey: We have certain ideas about direction, mainly in the recording area. Our music itself generally takes on a life of its own. We try not to attempt to create a song that sounds too much like something. That being said, we are listening to more music, taking it in, adding it to our mix, and our latest direction which I would venture to describe as a combination between dream pop, garage, and delta blues, is very exciting. That’s subject to change… What are your best and worst experiences to date?

Being born. What would you like your fans/audience to know about you?

Tales and myths. Tell us about your live gigs. What is it like to see you perform in the flesh?

As of late we’ve been cooking up a fire at shows, our latest endeavors are exciting us and we’ve melded together as a live act quite nicely. There’s laughter, some sweat, some jokes, rock & roll that’s not loose, but not too tight either. Just the way we like it. Where can we see you in the near future? 

Hamilton/Toronto most likely. We’re working up some November gigging, so follow our Bandcamp/facebook
