"Well, you gotta give me ten," Beasley insists. "If I was on a sinking ship, I would grab five more discs rather than some other useless crap."

  • Black Sabbath, Sabotage/Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
  • Dr. Dre, The Chronic

What Is The Best Show You Have Ever Been A Part Of?

Probably the first Dicks reunion show at Rudyard's. I wasn't involved with it, but I was there and they sounded amazing. Even Kevin Bakos was raging! The show was released on CD a few years ago on HotBox Records.

My claim to fame is that you can hear Josh Wolf and I in between almost every song making obnoxious whooping noises. We must have been right by the main recording microphone.

Either that or the entire Australian Insect Warfare tour. I would love to tour there again.

What Are Your Plans For 2013?

I will be continuing recording and editing my upcoming solo album," Beasley says. "I'm playing synthesizer and samplers with Charlie and Tyler from Balaclavas and Domokos in a new band called Sub Sonic Voices.

And totally burning more organ with the Hamamatsu Tom Experience. I'm learning more about living off the grid, and preparing for the economic collapse.
