“Franc (drums) from Bowcaster.”

Ten acts everyone should know about:

“Breach, MF Doom, Mos Def, DJ Krush, The Nation Blue, Qua, Robotosaurus, Coerce, Pops & The Murdered Birds and Cocks Arquette.”

Nine food items that you need to make a kickarse dinner party:

“Pork crackling, cheesecake, party pies, tequila, ice-cream cake, beef jerky, sausage sandwiches, good cheese and blue milk. I don’t know if anyone but me would enjoy that spread though.”

Eight possessions that define you:

“My toy collection, music collection, movie collection, drum kit, game consoles, game collection, sneakers and jersey cotton bed sheets.”

Seven favourite movies/TV shows that go on your mix-tape:

“Star Wars (IV, V, VI), Akira, The Boondocks, Falling Down, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Neon Genesis Evangelion and The Wire.”

Six bad habits you can’t escape:

“Smoking, online shopping, eating junk food, swearing, watching Jersey Shore and using Jedi mind tricks for personal gain.”

Five people who inspire you:

“Katsuhiro Otomo, Satoshi Kon (R.I.P.), Shigeru Miyamoto, Hayao Miyazaki and Hideo Kojima. These guys really think outside of the box and make the world way more fun. Look them up, you probably won’t regret it.”

Four things that turn you on:

“Princess Leia in a metal bikini, Princess Leia’s hair buns, Princess Leia firing a blaster and boobs.”

Three goals for your music:

“I think I would like people to just (1) listen to our music, (2) absorb it then (3) judge it. This might make me sound like a self-important jerk but I don’t really care if people like it or not as long as they have made the effort to form an educated opinion.”

Two live gigs you’ll never forget and why:

“Mos Def at the Espy. It was just perfect. Any time I have seen DJ Krush. He destroys me every single time.”

One day left before the apocalypse and you are:

“On the couch, oblivious. I’m a total home body.”

When’s the gig / release?

“Launching the Taun Taun/Thermal Detonator 7″ at the Old Bar on July 15. Be there or be disintegrated.”
