Here’s a part II to Monday’s post. While this interview has been around for a few months now, I thought I would still promote it, so you can hear it. Canadian radio station The Antidote interviewed Dave Emmerson from ZAP Records as he talks about music, why he closed down ZAP, and his new plans. It was another great interview and not just because I know both Daves talking to each other. Yes, I’m namedropped briefly, but don’t listen to this interview because of that. It really gives insight into Dave’s ideology in music and creative projects.
Very recently, Dave Emmerson from Dystopian Futures was interviewed by The Antidote. He had some great insight for his current band. Dave also talks about the weaknesses of social media, rampant narcissism, and sci-fi. Shoot, I didn’t even know he was a fan of Dr. Strangelove. Hahaha! I thought this was a great interview and you should check it out.
Don’t forget that Dystopian Futures’s Low Arts EP comes out on 6/11/18 on http://zaprecords.bandcamp.com.

Don’t forget, Dystopian Futures has a new music video for their Low Arts song. Yes, I worked on it and I threw in some stealth puns. Hee hee hee…
I found out about this interview recently. It was amazing that Dave Hawkins from The Antidote interviewed my friend who’s also named Dave. They talk about the origins of ZAP Records and his numerous bands. Also, I got name-dropped briefly in this interview. Dave Emmerson is a legit guy and he really cares about the independent music scene.
Check out his bands:

Hey, everybody. I found out that Dave from The Antidote radio did an article about Ospreyshire and my other projects.
I thought it was very kind of him to do so, and I appreciated it.
Feel free to check out The Antidote Radio. They do a lot of great interviews and podcasts on that site.
So, I got an email from Dave of The Old-Timers and ZAP Records fame earlier today. He told me that my debut EP got reviewed. I couldn’t believe that it actually happened. This was the first time in my life that anyone has reviewed my creative works ever. Dave Hawkins (not to be confused with the aforementioned Dave) from The Antidote checked it out. You can find his review of Verses Vs. Anhedonia at two places…
One quote that stood out to me involved the final sentences.
“Curtis M’s straight-forward lyric approach, overlaying the atmospheric background, creates a distinctly curious aesthetic. Be prepared for this five minute long game changer.”
Thanks, Mr. Hawkins!
