A talk with Jane Penny, TOPS’s vocalist, at her home back in Montreal
Tell us, what do you do in life?
I’m a freelance animator and in my free time I fiddle around with creative coding.
What do you like best about your place?
High ceilings and big paintings.
What kind of music are you listening to at the moment?
On mellow days, jazz, new wave and dub. For the kicks, I’ll turn on some indie, tech house or old-school hip hop. Lately I’ve also been digging deeper into world music, it’s sick!
What’s the first record you bought?
Ad. 4 by a very cheesy Polish band called Ich Troje in 2001. I still remember all those songs by heart. It gives me the shivers.
What’s your favourite pastime?
Sweating, getting lost, catching up on films.
Tell us something weird about you.
I was born a monkey but seriously wanted to become human.
Any guilty pleasures?
Eating peanut butter with a spoon. Guilty as charged.
Which future Subbacultcha show are you looking forward to?
W.I.T.C.H. ft. Jack Gardner for a micro dose of psychedelics.
