Published Sep 01, 2000Who Are You?
I'm a mutant oddity named after a monstar called Awol One.
What are you up to?
Well, my album "Speakerface" will be out in August and we have a Shapeshifters album called "Adopted By Aliens" out soon, both on Celestial. And right now we have a project called 4 Eyed Mortalz & Know Future [Shapeshifters] out on Mean Street in stores now, just in time for Halloween & Christmas!
Hometown and Current HQ:
My hometown is Los Angeles county but right now I currently live on Earth - it's just a temporary planet.
Besides collecting human souls, I'm into very loud music.
Mind altering work of art:
Once we were on LSD and my friend shaved his head & face with some old clippers. It was the funniest thing ever.
Most memorable/inspirational gig - and why?
Probably Narnia because it was a huge line up & thousands of people and we went on around 3 am still bugging out on mushrooms. Rob One (RIP) was wearing an ill costume & we rocked the crowd.
What should everyone shut up about?
How dope they are and how wack everyone else is, cause everyone's dope in their own way (right).
Your greatest strength/weakness:
Strength is probably my stubborn mind frame. Weakness is probably sex, drugs and money.
Your vital daily ritual:
My morning crap & my afternoon bong load.
Weed or alcohol.
If I wasn't playing music I would be...
Inventing a new instrument.
Your most memorable day job:
Taco Bell. I worked there for 3 days.
Best/Worst advice ever received:
My dad told me to never take anyone's advice. That's my best & worst.
I would drop everything to play a benefit for ...
DJ Rob One or Memo (RIP)
What makes you want to take it off and get it on?
When my girlfriend is drunk.
What personal trait would make you kick someone out of your band/and have you?
I would never kick my robot out of my bed or my band because robots are the future.
When I think of Canada I think ....
Tom Green, Alanis Morissette & Canadian bacon pizza but I'm down to go cause I hear it's a good vibe out there.
Music and sex, is there a difference - why?
No, because either way you do what feels good.
Strangest brush with celebrity
At a Beastie Boys/Run DMC show I met Mike Tyson. But once I saw Keanu Reeves when we were all drugged up, that's comedy!
What does your mom wish you were doing instead?
My mom always wanted me to be a teen idol so I can't let her down.
