Coutts Fears ‘Canadian Content’ Breeds Mediocrity

Paul Rogers of the Las Vegas Weekly spoke with bassist Duncan Coutts, who spoke realistically about the group’s success in their home country. “I think that one of the reasons Canadian bands tend to be successful in Canada is because you’re guaranteed to get played on the radio,” Coutts explained. “Because of ‘Canadian Content’ (the rule that obliges Canadian radio stations to play 33 percent homegrown music). … My greatest fear with that is that it sort of breeds mediocrity. We as a band don’t want to be played because people feel like they have to play us-we want to be a great band among other great bands.”
