“I Wish You Were Beer” — Interview with Warraxe of Nordheim

Beer, bacon and heavy metal are a few of my favourite things, so when I found this band from Quebec that combines all three, I knew we had to bro down! We’re hanging out with Warraxe, guitarist of Nordheim, right here on Triple B!!!

So, you guys are from Bellechasse, Quebec… Where can I get the best poutine in Bellechasse?

The best poutine in Bellechasse is by far the one you get at L’Amical in St-Lazare… One big mess for under 10 bucks. My personal favorite meal. Period.

That sounds amazeballs! Dude, you just put out a new album called RapThor, and I’m digging the first single, “I Wish You Were Beer.” What was the inspiration behind that song?

You know when your girlfriend is angry and you don’t know why? The only thing you know is that you’re not getting any and you wish you had a cold one to help that slide. So yeah…

Speaking of cold ones, out of all the bars you’ve played across Canada, which one has the best beer?

We have not played in many bars with their own beer but the Corsaire is one of them. If you ever go there I highly recommend you try the Davey Jones, now that’s what I call a f***ing good stout.

Dude, a pirate-themed microbrewery!? Sign me up!!! Now, “Boobs and Bacon” is the second single, right? If you had to choose between boobs and bacon, which one would you pick?

You are cruel!!! I don’t know because choosing either one of them is like stabbing me in the back… But if I had to I would pick boobs because you can eat them both but only boobs can get you hard!

Bacon gets ME hard, bro! I heard that you have a strong sense of bro-ness with your fans. Who’s the brodiest broseph you’ve ever bro-ed down with?

For sure our roadies, hahahaha!!! They are not always the same but when they are there things get wild pretty fast and our tomorrows get harder!

Finally, if Nordheim was a burger, what kind of burger would you be?

Triple cheese-bacon with a spicy and smokey sauce I’d say. Something like smokey chipotle and maple sauce… Damn that sounds nice. Oh and also lettuce and cucumbers in it, you always need something fresh and original.

Well, I think we just achieved maximum bro-ness. Check out their slideshow video below, bro!!!

All the tacos you can eat!

 

Would you drive two and a half hours on a Wednesday just to eat tacos, bro? Well, that’s what we did last year, when we headed out to Taco Farm, this funky little joint in Waterloo, where they’re serving up all you can eat tacos on Wednesdays. They don’t call ’em Waddle Out Wednesdays for nothing–after scarfing down at least 17 tacos, I barely made it outta there alive!!!

Tacos al pastor!

 

So, we’re hanging out at El Trompo, this real-deal Mexican taco joint in Kensington Market. This place is known for its authentic south of the border food, as well as its horribly outdated, Flash-based website. Now, the fish tacos are pretty legit, and the queso fundido is outta bounds bro, but the al pastor is where it’s at. They serve ’em up Dee Efe style with pineapple, coriander and onion, and some lime on the side. Five to an order will only cost ya 10 bucks, bro!!!

10 Doritos Locos Tacos!

 

Back in 2013, when they first introduced Doritos Locos Tacos to Canada, I might have gone a little overboard. Y’see, I knew they were only available for a limited time, so I wanted to eat so many at one time that I would never feel like I was missing out if I didn’t ever eat them again. Yes, I did eat all 10 of them. And sure enough, I have not eaten another Doritos Locos Taco to this day.

A fried chicken ‘n waffle taco!

Now, I’ve had some pretty crazy tacos in my lifetime, but this one might be the most funky of the funky bunch. There’s this little joint called Cluck Clucks, down around St. Lawrence Market, where all they serve is fried chicken ‘n waffles. And last summer, after eating a piece of fried chicken and a waffle, and then a fried chicken and waffle sandwich, I still had room for this crazy culinary creation. They call it a twaco, equal parts waffle and taco, with fried chicken, crispy tortilla strips and an Asian-style dressing. When you scarf down this twaco, a Corona gets its lime, bro!!!!

All the tacos in the Barrio!

 

Now, back when I used to live in the east end, there was a certain stretch of Queen St that you wanted to avoid, on the other side of the tracks from Degrassi St up to about Pape. There used to be a buncha dive bars, pawn shops and greasy-looking diners that you didn’t wanna mess around in…but that area’s pretty nice now. I mean, you’ve got cozy little pubs like the Brooklyn Tavern, at Queen and Brooklyn, and a few killer Mexican joints, like Barrio Cerveceria, where they’re serving up seven different kinds of tacos at $5-$6 a pop.

A grilled cactus taco!

 

Now, I don’t always eat vegan food, but when I do, it’s gotta be so far outta bounds that a search party can’t find it. Like this south-of-the-border classic from the renegades of funk at Tacos 101, the nopal taco. They take grilled cactus, chop it up like crunchy green beans, and add layers of beans, cheese, tomatoes and onions. Pretty sure I could slam seven of these, son!!!
