Audible Treats For The Kiddies: The Beat Interview Archives

Here's the deal: I got interviews. Tons of 'em. They're sitting here and I don't know what to do with them.

Of course, some of them make the paper in some form: an excerpt here, a quote there. But not the whole thing. And some of these things are gold. I'm telling you. Gold.

So, in the interest of sharing wealth, I am holding an interview clearance of sorts. The following links are for you audio perusing. You can thank me later.

Steel Pulse: This interview was taken in February, 2007. I spoke with Selwyn Brown, original member of Steel Pulse and the band's keyboardist. This was cool because I've always been a big fan of the band, and Brown was really pleasant over the phone even though he was filling in for an absent band mate.

Here's the link:

Mic Quin: Salinas rapper Mic Quin has been getting some shine recently on the Street Low car show tour. He's recorded with Mistah FAB and Guce, to name a few. Check him out at


Ice Cube: A west coast rap legend, movie idol and producer extraordinaire, Ice Cube was also my hero in high school. The interview of a lifetime.


El-P: El-P is a true artist, original, uncompromising, unsteady. The one thing I learned about him through this interview: he's got a sense of humor, and a pretty good one at that.

Check it out:

Lou Adler: Adler is the father of Monterey Pop, a hollywood icon and Jack Nicholson's Laker game homie. What more can I say.
