How much does Mac DeMarco’s Mom know about Mac DeMarco?
In an interview conducted at Laneway Festival in Sydney, Australia, FasterLouder had Mac and his mom Agnes face off in a rounding round of Mac DeMarco-themed trivia.
The interview boasts many revelations to be had about the BC-born, Edmonton-raised indie-rocker, including what the first CD he bought was (Weezer, Blue Album), who his favourite member of Metallica is (James Hetfield), and what type of underwear Mac wears (boxer-briefs).
Mom DeMarco was willing to share a bit of dirt during the Mac-Off, revealing that Mac once stole $50, and “bought weapons, because he was being bullied at school.” Dark. On a lighter note, Mac talks about hiding his own piss and shit under his bed in a time-capsule when he was a kid. All in all, it’s a pretty informative little quiz, and a window into what seems like a very comfortable, loving relationship between the two.
