Paul of Montreal in Exclaim! Canada's Music Mag

“Paul of Montreal” / Exclaim / Guy Leshinski / March 27, 2003

“I want the reader to take a trip,” he says, “I want to point out little things that are Quebecois and charming and poetic, the different undulations of accents, the expressions and imagination. I don’t know if Quebecois culture is going to survive; I want it to be printed somewhere.” He keeps photography books of old Montreal street scenes, for inspiration, and with his own camera has filled an album with shots of the city’s streets and houses, all of which finds its way into his panels. “The city is transforming itself. It’s becoming trendy, with specialised boutiques. Mont Royal Avenue is now devoted to the jet set. I’m nostalgic.”
