“I understand and appreciate instantaneous music and artforms in general,” he maintains. “But I will say a lot of that is so phony to me. To talk about dubstep, for example: Maybe that’s cutting edge for the next month in Williamsburg, but the fact is, I call bulls— and I don’t believe you. I think you’re doing that just to be part of something that’s popular for the moment, and if you want to take art as disposable fashion, that’s your business. But I don’t.”
Mark followed that up with a post on his own website that said:
To be clear, I don’t even know dubstep. I am a hypocrite. I also like to lie. Live however you wanna live. I realize it’s better to print the worst parts of interviews, but I honestly don’t think I am better or worse than anyone – just living my life. I enjoy being facetious and if that gets you to listen to my music, I’m happy, cuz it seems there is no other way.
Mark Sultan, king of dubstep, master of BBQ, hater of King Khan (maybe), and all around good guy, plays Cake Shop tonight (12/1), one of three shows he has scheduled for this month. They’re all listed below.
Xray Eyeballs also play the Cake Shop show tonight, either before or after they play Brooklyn Bowl with the Dum Dum Girls (yes, they play twice tonight). Speaking of, the above picture was actually taken at a show in Austin that Mark played with the Dum Dum Girls.
Mark has a new video for “Graveyard Eyes” that features Jared Swilley of the Black Lips. You can watch it below…
