torn from my best-friend by the cruel hands of fate i fell into a black hole, opened my eyes and saw a jungle, made some friends, wrote some music, harnessed the power of the beast and took it from there
what's your message?
make friends with yr inner beast. give it a hat and some pants, and let it free.
do you play shows and how do they look like?
first i have to awaken a mystical slumbering beast through lullabies and chants. then i borrow his head and this awesome power runs through my body makes me feel funny. this translates into song. the beast glows and flashes a lot and is very colourful. sometimes his innards explode on the stage and out into the audience. i wear a holographic jumpsuit to compliment the beast. after a while the beast gets angry and starts to scream so i have to give him back his head.
what was the craziest show you've ever played ?
once i collaborated with a guy called ka4u - i decided to play the drums but one song into the gig i realised that i sucked, so i asked if someone else could play. this lovely bloke from a band called oshiri pen pen (bottom spank spank) played and i rapped and ka4u played keys and it was a power jam from the bowels of the goddess
what was the worst and why?
probably when i played drums for that one song. or when i once gave the audience unicorn horns to wear and they all snapped and nearly maimed people.
what are your future plans?
to make a concept album about the magical jungle where the beast is from
are you going for the big deal or are you more the d.i.y. type?
