Interview with Lederhosen Lucil, DJ Jester the Filipino Fist, and Krista Muir
I was lucky enough to get to do an interview with Lederhosen Lucil, DJ Jester the Filipino Fist, and Krista Muir of Hypo Records for KTRU. I leave it to the astute music aficionado (I just checked right now, apparently afficionado is also an allowable spelling) to discern why the previous sentence is odd.
Their take on music downloads was in some ways completely different than that generally espoused by the Reputation. Neither viewpoint can be said to be without its pros and cons, so for now I will leave the subject alone. I have my own definite views on where intellectual property needs to head to allow the production of art to continue to be a viable method of making a living, but that's a rant for a different time.
Anyway, they were fun to interview, and played a great show at the Proletariat later in the evening. DJ Jester started off his set with the instrumental version of Ray Parker Jr.'s "Ghostbusters" and it only got better from there. The crowd was a little dead, though - I tried to get people dancing, but I think indie rock hipster kids don't actually know how to dance. Lucil dealt with a fairly rowdy crowd quite adeptly - she's got some snappy comebacks in her arsenal! Hopefully they will all get a chance to come back to Houston.
Anyway, here's the interview (64kbps stereo mp3 format):
