environmentally concious hip hop duo HERBIVORES is bgenius (aka bgreene) and “da grizza.” currently, they collaborate between 2 different cities on opposite coasts.  here, in a DTS exclusive, they interview each other.

b : hey grizz … name some of your influences/inspirations ?  some of mine are john lennon, mlk jr.

grizz : china white, purple haze, dominoes

b : nice … ok … some common themes that we cover in our rhymes are vegetarianism, personal responsibility, and of course, weed … let’s talk about these topics.  i’ll start …

    – vegetarianism

     the best thing you can do for your body, mind, the planet, and most importantly, animals.  i feel it’s the proper way to live life not just with what i eat (i eat alot of nutz) but what clothing i wear, what choices i make as a consumer, etc.

    – personal responsibility

    everyone’s responsibility as a HUMAN.  i throw my rubbish in proper receptacles, i clean up after my dog.

    – weed

    white widow, kush, northern lights …

grizz : i don’t eat anything with eyez.  i don’t need the guilt of something watching me whilst i eat on it.

b : word.  HERBIVORES are also anti-thug.  we hate that thug gangster bullshit.

grizz : i don’t care.  live and let live.  i’ve got a stretched hummer filled with packing peanuts.  just kidding.  that shit would be frivolous and wasteful.  keep ya head up.

b : and lastly, give me a 5 song mix … here’s mine :

  • don’t try so hard (queen)
  • the end (escape key)
  • bronx cheer (mercury rev)
  • reel (jawbox)
  • tommy gun angel (bardo pond)

grizz :

  • burn (deep purple)
  • still ill (the smiths)
  • never turn your back on mother earth (sparks)
  • blue eyes crying in the rain (willie nelson)
  • sleep walking (santo and johnny)


there ya have it folks …  keep an ear and eye out for HERBIVORES

what i’m currently rockin.  ah …  my first post to DTS.  here we go …

“The Moon and the Melodies”/Cocteau Twins and Harold Budd
the cocteaus may not exist anymore, but robin guthrie is pretty consistantly putting out stuff whether it’s a film soundtrack or a solo album …  and we just saw him perform a few weeks ago which is very rare in these parts !  visually and sonically amazing !

“The Mind Is a Terrible Thing To Taste”/Ministry
haven’t really listened to them since the days of high skool.  takes me back.

The Jesus Lizard
’nuff said

“Exploded Drawing”/Polvo
90’s chapel hill greats polvo have recently reunited and we saw them back in june in nyc and a few weeks back at ATP.  they were one of the more anticipated acts and one of the highlights of the festival weekend !

“Get Used To It Fast”/Bio & Hills West
LI electronic hip hop duo that will have you thinking you’re listening to the best hip hop around … and you’d be right.

“1000 Hurts”, “At Action Park”/Shellac
shellac rules! steve albini’s (big black, rapeman, engineer of many a good album) dirty guitar, todd trainer’s sick drumming, with bob weston holding down the rhythm. AWESOME.

stay tuned …
