One Question Interviews: Guerrilla Ghosts

Martin Defatte (Guerilla Ghosts)

SPB: Who is your favorite artist to see live?

Defatte: My favorite artist to see live these days would have to be Carnage the Executioner. Living in the Twin Cities, Milwaukee ends up being a tour stop for him a few times a year. I first saw him... must be 13-14 years ago now. Lately, he's been foregoing DJs and backing tracks and handling his musical accompaniment by beatboxing and making noise into a series of loopers and guitar pedals. It's quite a site to see. I've seen him rock the Cactus Club for nearly two hours... all on-the-fly. I like to describe him as a combination of Michael Winslow from Police Academy (you know, the guy who makes all the weird sound effects with his mouth) and The Fat Boys' style Human Beat Box. Mix that, with a looper pedal and a master class in emceeing and that's one hell of a show.

Check him out next time he comes to your town:
