Vintage Fashion Feature Whether its Peggy or Don, Joanie or Roger , Betty or Peggy; whoever you fancy with Mad Men there is always someone to love. For this article I decided that I would do a write up on one of my favorite shows, Mad Men. If you are not familiar with this show, I suggest renting the series and watching it. Mad Men is set in the 1960s, and regularly depicts the changing moods and social ideals of the time. The show is based around an advertising firm in Manhattan, New York and focuses on the lives of the ad men, their secretaries and their functional and dysfunctional families. Mad Men does an outstanding job for its historical authenticity and visual style and has won countless awards for the best outstanding drama series. The reason I wanted to do this write up to let you know that in August, Banana Republic will introduce Mad Men inspired capsule collection from Mad Men

costume designer Janie Bryant. Let me tell you these pieces are to die for. There will be wiggle dresses, purses and hats, cigarette pants, cardigans and full circle skirts. For the men, SUITS. You will be able to get the recreated 60s suit that looks ever so handsome on. Not to mention ties, fedoras, vests, cardigans and jackets. This is one of the best collections I have ever seen by Banana Republic and I am counting the days until the release. Let’s just say I have my mom on the job in Toronto she has a list of goodies to grab when the collection comes out, Thanks Mom, I love you! Stay tuned for next week. I will be featuring a local Nelson designer. Ooh la la, who will it be? Have a great week, let’s all pray for some sunshine! Ciao for now.

Celebrate BC Day

Sunday Kokanee Creek Park

Celebrate BC Day at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park on Sunday, July 31 with a day of special family activities. The events start in the morning with the long-standing and ever popular Jerry’s Rangers program which will feature a special BC Day adventure for kids in the Kokanee Creek forest. Meet at the Visitors’ Centre at 10:00 AM. A Sand Castle Contest will take place at 1 PM at the day area beach on the east side of the park.

The Celebration wraps up with Family Folk Dancing on the lawn near the playground. Heavy Shtetl, a five-piece Eastern European Roots band , will provide the music while Folk-fusion performer and dancer instructor Slava Doval leads the group through the steps. And for that extra energy needed for all that dancing, birthday cake will be served!

other famous names their first big break. With an impeccable Blues pedigree, he is the legendary.... John Mayall. Beginning a musical career in 1963, Mayall moved to swinging London and seems, in retrospect, to be the right man at the right time. American Blues was just catching on, and soon he had one of the most popular blues bands in the city. Joining the first incarnation of John Mayall And The Bluesbreakers was a young bass player named John McVie, the first of many famous players to cycle through the band. Two years later, Mayall recruited a hot young guitar named Eric Clapton, recorded Bluesbreakers With Eric Clapton and the legend began. In the years previous and following, soon-to-be-household-

and gets you to another level? I don’t think that’s ever conscious. When everyone else likes it, it’s a bonus. I don’t think what we do really fits into what a hit is considered anyways but I do know that a lot of people do enjoy what we do just like we do. As long as we’re proud of it that’s a hit to us. Also radio’s been really good to us, places like CBC, and community radio have really embraced our stuff and given it a chance to be up there with bands like Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers who are kind of in our world who are doing really great. So when bands like them do well it’s good for all of us.

SpiritBar 422 Vernon Street, Nelson

Chad Hansen of Quick Shot chats with Casey Elliott, vocalist/guitarist for Elliott Brood about show at SpiritBar, new album and cow bells. You guys have been known for bringing out bags of instruments at concerts like wood spoons; any cow bells in the bags? We don’t bring cow bells but people have brought their own recently. We bring pans and spoons, things that make a lot of noise to help with some of the songs and get the crowd involved but no, so far we haven’t brought cow bells but we don’t oppose to people bringing their own.

Has any audience ever gotten so off beat that you actually lose your place in the song? Oh ya, all the time. It all depends on how much people have been drinking. There have been a few times where we’ve gave them out a little early and it’s just been crazy but they are getting better at it. It’s so loud and so crazy and it’s hard to keep up to each other but it’s still a lot of fun.

You have been known to describe your sound as “death country” Can you explain exactly what that is? When we first started people were saying that we were blue grass and country and we didn’t feel like we really fit into that. I think Mark originally came up with the term dark country and it just kind

of made us stand out a bit. It’s a term that came up because we kept getting pigeon-holed into blue grass and real blue grass fans know that we aren’t that.

There aren’t a lot of bands that come from the alt country genre that admit to having metal influences but you guys put an incredible amount of distortion through your acoustic instruments. Have any audiences been scared by what you guys do? We may have scared away some older folks at times but I think most times people are intrigued by what they see. My favourite is when people see us for the first time and they see a banjo, an acoustic guitar and drum and it turns into something like a Nirvana song. People are caught off guard. This is just another thing, like everything else in this band that kind of happened by accident. I had this crappy Boss heavy metal petal from when I was young, we were just looking for different sounds and plugged the acoustic guitar into it and that’s when we started using amps.

New album still slated for September? Yep, September 27.

How much of that material is making current set lists? Most of it. We usually play our music before it gets on a record. We’ve been playing some of it for almost eight months now. We work them out on the road, play them live and figure out how we want to record them.

Did you try anything different this time around to capture the live show energy that you guys are really famous for? This record represents what we do live a little more. There is overdubs on the record but most songs are the three of us doing it in a take. It’s probably our most aggressive album by far. It’s the loudest for sure. It has our quietest song and our loudest song on it.

When you’re sitting down to get into the writing process, are there any thoughts about

You’ve been known to tell a lie or two, about the origins of the name Elliott Brood, what’s your favourite one to tell? We have variations of him being some kind of mass murderer back from the 1800s and that’s kind of the one we mostly use. There is no definitive one. We kind of ad lib as we go for people who really want to know the true story. The true story is so boring that we like to make it up. My favourite is saying that he is a sneaky kind of Jack the Ripper that no one has heard about so they go research it and can’t find anything about him.

Excited to be back in Nelson? We love playing in Nelson, we always have great shows there. The audiences just have such great energy. We can’t wait to see everone out banging pots and pans at SpiritBar! {laughs}

12 Year Olds African


Julie Schoch, a local 12 year old, departed Nelson July 17 to Africa keeping Quick Shot up to date on her weekly adventures... LONDON!! Today is our last day in London, England :( But I must say for the ladies reading my article: here in London they have some really hot guys! :) Today at 7:30 pm we are off to SOUTH AFRICA. Whoop whoop! But some interesting facts before we leave: there are over 22,0000 taxis just in London and we have been in, well let’s see, about 22 of them. And there are 38 colleges in Oxford to make up the whole university. So the other day, after we took one of the 22 taxis to Paddington Station, we saw this little Paddington Bear shop with a whole bunch of little post cards with Paddington bear waving an English flag and other items. The shop is owned by the author of the Paddington

stories. He lives just around the corner and often visits the shop. From Paddington station we went by train to Oxford. And in Oxford my mom rented a car and in England you drive on the other side of the road and oh no, I had to get in that car with my mom and risk my life to write this down so the people in Nelson could hear about it! We were driving and my mom decides to hit this truck parked on the wrong side of the road. Well, she just hit the mirror but I flinched and my mom goes “oh Julie, don’t freak out!” Her driving is scary even in Canada, so can you image what it was like for me!!! ~Julie Schoch

A Wacky World...

World’s Most Expensive Yacht

Yukaflux For the Party Animals From the kitchen of Executive Chef, Jeromie Strom of Ric’s Grill.


1 large watermelon 26 oz of your favourite flavoured vodka


Cut a small hole on one of the flat sides of the watermelon (save the plug). Slowly pour vodka into watermelon and replace the plug. Let “marinate” in fridge for 24 hours Slice watermelon and party... Believed to be the most expensive yacht in the world, the entire hull of the 100-foot History Supreme is wrapped in a thin layer of gold. In all, 100 tonnes of solid gold and platinum were used to bling this boat - on the deck, in the dining area, on the railings, the anchor and other accents. It was commissioned by an anonymous Malaysian business-

man, who reportedly paid about the equivalent of $4.6 billion. That works out to about $46 million per foot. The vessel, which took three years to build, is the handiwork of Stuart Hughes, a jeweller in Liverpool, U.K., who is known for his bespoke luxury items, like a diamond-wrapped iPhone worth about $7.7 million.

Man tries to repair hernia

A 63-year-old California man tried to operate on his own hernia by cutting open his stomach with a six-inch butter knife, police said Tuesday. The man was apparently frustrated with the painful medical condition, and took matters into his own hands - alarming his wife, who immediately called 911. “She said her husband was trying to remove a hernia.
