Tom Montague

Name: Thomas P. Montague

Instrument: Bass

Birthday/Sign: November 6th, Scorpio

First Musical Memory: My first memories of music are listening to The Police, The Beatles, The Platters, Simon and Garfunkel, and Beethoven… my dad loved Beethoven.

Favorite Record(s) of All Time: This is hard to come up with but I will try; Check Your Head- Beastie Boys, Blazing Arrow- Blackalicious, Velvet Underground and Nico, Cat Stevens- Tea for the Tillerman, The Cure- Kiss Me, Kiss Me, kiss Me, The Flaming Lips- The Soft Bulletin, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin- God Fodder, Phish- Junta, Radiohead- Kid A, Wilco- Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, Yo La Tango- I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass.

Worst Job: I worked as a dishwasher at a busy lobster restaurant in Rockport, Mass., and dealt more with garbage, dog poop, rats, and greedy owners than I did with dishes. They didn’t give me my last paycheck.

3 Things You Would Take on a Desert Island:
1. My ipod with 11,000 songs
2. A human powered generator for power
3. A good pillow

Something People Might Not Know About You: I love pedicures, please don’t tell everyone. The way my foot feels in the sheets at night is like nothing else.

What Does Being In Independent Louis Mean To You? : I love getting people dancing with stuff that we made. Being in this band really fits well with what I try to do in my life as an artist, we put ourselves out there and people respond to it. It’s rarely easy but its way better than not doing it.
