Wolf Parade frontman Dan Boeckner owes his band’s big sound to the silence of his youth. By Kyle Mullin for Edmonton’s SEE Magazine, July 22 2010

The room looked barren, battered and post apocalyptic. The revolution had passed, the Slovenian separatist protesters imprisoned within those walls were long since released — all before a new generation of war punks bought such barracks back from their newly independent government for their own uses, like hosting a venue for bands like Wolf Parade to play in.

“It was this jam packed show for a horde of crazy Slovenian kids — playing that dingy little place might have been our very best show,” front man Dan Boeckner said of Wolf Parade’s recent eastern European gig, adding that he hopes to stir up an equally frantic frenzy at the Starlite Room on July 23 as the band tours behind their latest album, Expo 86
