An Interview with Dan Geddes from Vancouver’s Peace on Coral FM

Peace is Dan Geddes band located in Vancouver.

Dan Geddes is a force, plain and simple. And despite the heaps of hella-high-praise references Peace receives — to Neu!, or Orange Juice, or Edwyn Collins, or whatever — there’s no substitute for experiencing their work via headphones. Peace shines not in virtuosity or violence (despite their ties to Vancouver’s explosive Emergency Room scene), but in their command of tone: The World Is Too Much With Us swaps the verbosity of Peace’s earlier work in favour of emotional dexterity, ranging from bombastic romancers (“Your Hand in Mine”), to menacing creepers (“Free Time”), to gleefully detached absurdist romps (“Kissed Dust”). It’s subtle, eloquent and direct — all of which is why I’m so obsessed. – Mark Teo. 

Dan has recently opened his own record store called Horse Records in Vancouver.  And Dan’s dad CBC Producer Ash Geddes is a good pal of mine and I saw Peace when they played in TO at The Magpie  a couple of years back.  That was fun!
