I just recently found out that Dan’s drum machine was stolen from a coffee shop in the Mile End section of Montreal:
Dan Boeckner, of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs (his duo with Alexei Perry), had his drum machine stolen from a Mile End coffee shop. On top of the financial cost of replacing it, there is the less quantifiable cost of recreating the music it contained. Boeckner told Hour: “I understand that people have drug addictions they’re trying to feed, but come on, most musicians are one step above poverty.”
Dan was not the only musician in Montreal to be robbed recently. Check the full article here for more information.
If you have any news about the stolen drum machine please contact me and i will pass it on…
