Five Funky Stories:: D-Sisive

Five Funky Stories is the magical random question generator to harass profile acts that are coming to Halifax, and with HPX on the horizon, we're going to try and feature as many of the acts as we can here. We're starting with one someone I'm rather excited to see perform, D-Sisive.

I doubt anyone in the bloggity-blog world has talked more about this T.O. MC and his return to the music world over the last year or so than us, so if you need to know his history, just poke around the site for posts like this here and this one.

You can check out D live in Halifax when he plays the Coconut Grove on October 21st, but now let's get the questions:

Name: D-Sisive
Band: Chaka Demus and Pliers

1. Have you ever played a keytar?

Nope. But have you heard the news? Dewey Cox died.

2. From your perspective, is the music business in better or worse shape when compared to 10 years ago?

It's different. It's benefitting in different ways than it did, though also suffering. It's easy to blame downloading, but I believe it's responsible for it's own demise. The value of music has gone down because of the bullshit that's released. Art is a minority more than ever. I can write about this for hours, but it's nothing that hasn't been said already. We need to do something about this Napster all the kids are using. Once you ban that, people will buy music again.

3. Who would you pay to see play live?

I've recently discovered the genius that is Tiny Tim beyond "Tiptoe Through The Tulips". His music is incredible. I paid over $100 for the 'Complete Reprise' collection and it's brilliant. His production is insane. I can't believe he hasn't been sampled to death. If he was still around, I'd definitely pay to see him live.

4. What's the longest time period you've gone without showering on the road?

Not more than three days. I've heard many filthy road stories, but I've been fortunate to have been able to consistantly clean myself during my long trips. Though, there have been nights where a hotel room wasn't provided, but the venue had a shower. Let's just say it's not easy to exfoliate when you're stepping in shit. I went through a lot of socks in the UK.

5. If forced to cover one hip hop song, what would it be?

Forced, like at gunpoint? I've covered a lot of songs in my day, so I'm going to treat this like an 'at gunpoint' question and assume you want me to name a three minute and thirty second hunk of shit. "Popped", though I will forever love that beat.
