Session 2: The Real McKenzies
We sat down with some of this year’s PRB artists and asked them a whole slew of random shit for our new blog, “Casualties of Conversation”. Todays edition features our rowdy and rebellious Canadian brothers, The Real McKenzies who will be appearing on the Las Vegas festival stage on Sunday, May 28, 2017.
What's the funniest or worst thing someone has called or said about you/your band?
Someone once said that if our sound could be described as a smell it would smell like somebody shit and puked in the same bucket.
Most embarrassing moment on stage?
When Paul got married on stage in Revelstoke while Bone showed his butthole to the crowd, Dirty Kurt had fallen down clutching his chest(he had just had open heart surgery after a heart attack)and McNasty and I were puking side stage from a flu. The crowd loved it.

Ian Dury, Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick.
