The Intelligent Demon Music Tour, 2012. Twin headliners: Gonjasufi and Demon Queen — the freshly dug up duo of Tobacco and Zackey Force Funk. Promoters, make it happen. All attendees receive a free copy of Tobin’s Spirit Guide and fistfuls of DMT. First person to see the spirit of Eazy E wins. Jokes aside, the hallucinogenic angle that people ascribe to Tobacco’s music cheapens exactly how psychotically melodic and violently original the collisions of color are. As Starks said: “I don’t want no one sounding like me on no album.” If you tried to imitate this, you’d just look stupid.

On “El Camino,” the Black Moth Super Rainbow mastermind and Zackey Force Funk take  “Boyz in the Hood,” synthesizers, and spanglish. They bend it into a Vocoder jam that cackles, wheezes, bangs, howls, and offers incantations to the spirit of dead men who put their Chevy’s on Daytons.  Or as Tobacco aptly put it: this is going to end up as music for fucked up strippers.  The Demon Queen album is slated for summer release. The new Black Moth Super Rainbow is done too. The unofficial release party will be held at Jumbo’s Clown Room. Even if no one associated with the record is present.
