In this interview we talk to Colin Kelday, better known as Quick Kick, an electronic artist and composer from Toronto, Canada. Colin was born into the cataclysmic collision of punk, and grew up sliding along the shores of psychedelia. After emerging from the slumber of suburbia, he embarked on a career that has lead from playing hostile house parties to opening for major influences like Pop Will It Itself, co-producing the final album of Canadian alt-rock royalty The Watchmen, and scoring the cult hit film How to Be Deadly.
