Christopher O'Gorman could be called a lifer. Over the years, he has fronted bands including The Year of Acceleration and the Static Session. His current group, Caught on Film, can be seen along with the Early Black at Sky Bar on Saturday, Aug. 18.
What was the first concert you attended?
Kiss! It was without their makeup, but was still awesome!
What are you listening to these days?
I'm listening to The Sound, From the Lions Mouth. Great record. I'm also listening to The Walkmen. I love that band.
What was the first album you owned?
A Happy Days album called Fonzie Favorites. I love the Fonz, and he's wearing a "Sit on It" button on the cover. Classic!
What artist, genre or musical trend does everyone seem to love, but you just don't get?
Not sure about the whole Dave Matthews thing. It's quite comical to me.
What musical act, current or defunct, would you most like to see perform live?
I'd love to see Oasis.
Musically speaking, what is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Oh man, frigging Katy Perry. Huge fan of hers.
What song would you like to have played at your funeral?
Depeche Mode's "Blasphemous Rumours."
What band or artist changed your life, and how?
The Cure. They were my soundtrack through my formative years, and still are in many ways.
Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?
If I had two weeks to live, I'd say My Bloody Valentine's Loveless. But with the gun pointed, I'd say Adorable's Against Perfection.
