Adjust Tracking: An Interview with Tobacco

Anyone who has seen Tobacco perform, either solo or with his band Black Moth Super Rainbow, has probably seen the background video that accompanies the performances. The videos are part schlock-horror, part regrettable exercise tape, and part even-more-regrettable porn. They have been released on two DVD’s: “Fucked Up Friends” 1& 2, the latter claiming to be “the first ever low resolution, lo-fi Blu-ray video.” Tobacco, whose newest record, Maniac Meat was just released on Anticon, took some time to speak with Ladies & Gentlemen about his video work, wet latex, and the freedom of jokes.

When did you start using video in your live performances?
Probably for the first Black Moth [Super Rainbow] show that we ever did. So, pretty much since the beginning. I remember dumping a bunch of videos onto a VCR tape and just projecting it. I can’t remember what was on it.

Was there something that spurred that decision to include video in your shows?
I think it’s always been to make it a more entertaining show and give people something to look at. We’re not the most animated people onstage. So, I think it’s a lot more interesting to watch fucked up shit on the screen than it is to just be staring at what we’re doing.

The Cupcake Cannon

Ever wondered what would happen if Johnny Cupcakes and the folks of Portland’s Kamp Grizzly hung out for a night (hint: they’d make a cupcake cannon)?

Well, wonder no more… they made a cupcake cannon. Even better, they filmed it. Now you too can witness the horror/ecstasy of willing participants being shot with cupcakes, frosting and sprinkles shot at 120psi.

Johnny Kelly “Procrastination”

You might have recently seen his insanely awesome animated GIF work via his collaboration with Matthew Cooper on I Am Not An Artist, but Johnny Kelly also has some amazing other work of his own you should check out. I was particularly humbled by his “Procrastination” piece. Please procrastinate for another 5 minutes with me…
