When we heard from Kool A.D of Das Racist yesterday we thought that was Das Racist’s small talk done and dusted. WRONG. Just like finding one last piece of left over (but still very edible) pizza in a greasy box that you thought was actually empty whilst you’re cleaning up hungover, these guys just keep on giving, and today we received a round of answers from Das Racist’s hype-man and literary renaissance man Dapwell, as well as MC Heems (we’ll post that one later, let’s stagger this shit). The dudes will be playing BDO and sideshows soon and if they give this much over email, imagine what they’ll give on stage. Over to you Dap…
My name is… Ashok Kondabolu ska DAP aka DAPWELL
By day I… Write hard-hitting profiles of New Yorkers at work for Bristol-based UK Magazine “Derby”
By night I…. Edit copy for “lad-mag” THE LIFE (UK-based lifestyle magazine).
My favourite TV show is… I recently rewatched The Sopranaos. Sometimes I skipped the therapy parts waiting for somebody to get their brains blown out.
The last movie I watched was… Insidious. It was bad but definitely worth watching.
The first CD I ever bought was… Phil Collins. Cannot remember which one, it had red script on the cover next to a picture of his head, I think.
The last was… I found and sold a copy of No Way Out in 1997.
If I wasn’t making music I would probably be… setting my middle-school on fire for winter solstice.
I’m addicted to…. THE MEDIUM-PACED LIFE.
The best thing about performing is… Making peepee in the greenroom.
The worst thing is… Same as Kool A.D “Pretending to be excited about something you’ve done hundreds of times”.
When I get to Australia I can’t wait to… Make fun of the accents while not realizing that I have an accent.
The last time I was in Australia I… Swam all the way back home.
When I tour I like to… Film everything in case somebody gets killed later on.
The last thing I ate was… Frozen grapes.
My fave youtube vid is… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_pV0H5ieiw
My computer’s wallpaper is… The final version of Lakutis’ album cover for “I’m In the Forest” EP
