Ceschi Ramos, hip-hop MC & Fake Four Inc. founder, in discussion with ArtByTai on DOD45 (Drawing Over Discussions Episode 3)

DOD45 - ArtByTai's Drawing Over Discussions 45 Minutes With a Special Guest

In this episode Tai draws a grotesque #GarbagePailKids drawing while in discussion with hip-hop musician, lyricist & founder of #FakeFourInc, #CeschiRamos AKA #Ceschi.   Join Ceschi & Tai for what is supposed to be a 45 minute discussion (the conversation was going so well, the drawing hadn't yet been done by the buzzer-time & they both agreed to add 15 more minutes to the timer) and watch Tai draw "Francesco Four Fingers" a Garbage Pail Kid type character in honor of one of Ceschi best friends & illustrator of Ceschi's album #FakeFlowers, #JonnyNagel, who unfortunately passed away in 2019.    Their discussion spans over a wide spectrum of topics including how Ceschi has been weathering the pandemic; how Ceschi suffered a spiral fracture of the humerus, arm wrestling while on tour in Hawaii;  some of his strange collections; his feelings on growing up multi-cultural; differences in rapping in Spanish or in English; getting peed on at a #StoneTemplePilots concert & how #TheBlackKeys are potentially responsible for the break up of a band that Fake Four had signed.   Ceschi also discusses the Live shows he has seen at Toad's Place in New Haven including #MrBungle, #HR, #BadBrains, #EarthCrises, #WuTangClan, #Jurassic5 and #MarsVolta.   All of that, a handful of amusing Sophie's Choices and some brief mentions of the following: #HandyRandy, #AdamBomb, #Bjork, #ThomYorke, #BlackCrowes, #SydBarrett, #SidVicious, #MC5, #Jurassic5, #Ozomatli, #FrankOcean, #DevendraBanhart, #MyPetMonster, #Madballs, #JoseConsecoTradingCards, #2Mex, #Xolanxinco, #JoannaNewsom, #Fishbone, #Gwar, #BoneThugsNHarmony, #AliceInChains, #AliceCooper, #BadBrains, #BadReligion, #MinorThreat, #VelvetUnderground, #DigitalUnderground, #ShockG, #Chali2na, #ToadsPlace #TheSmiths, #Radiohead #FactorChandelier, #FreakFolk, #Omid, #MFDoom, #GinBlossoms, #Lilys, #TheSmiths, #Sublime, #AliceColtrane, #TalkingHeads, #JoyDivision, #Outkast, #Aquemini, #Akil and many, many more. It's a lot to jam into a 45 minute discussion, so we added 15.    Prints of the Francesco Four Fingers drawing available here: https://artbytai.com/products/ceschidod45 (all proceeds will go to purchases from Fake Four & Ceschi ♻️)  Pertinent links from the episode:  Support Ceschi at https://ceschi.bandcamp.com/ Fake Four Inc: https://fakefourinc.com/ The Village Voice article on Ceschi's 2010 case: https://www.villagevoice.com/2014/01/02/the-prison-saga-of-ceschi/ Ceschi on A Fistful of Vinyl interview & performances: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWwswVeuaR6SMl2iqui2bfCWbDZ0GGW8V Broken Bone Ballads download: https://fakefour.bandcamp.com/album/broken-bone-ballads Sad Fat Luck download: https://fakefour.bandcamp.com/album/sad-fat-luck-3 Become an ArtByTai collector at https://artbytai.com/ Theme music by Nalei from her debut album "13" - https://open.spotify.com/album/0BUFr5... --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/artbytai/support

Episode 83 - Ceschi Ramos

Height Zone World

My guest this week is Ceschi Ramos. He’s a rapper/singer-songwriter, as well as one of the founders of the Fake Four label. He’s made a big impact in the underground music world, and we’ve shared many bills together over the years. We talk about the early incarnations of his Anonymous Inc band, and his first taste of the music business big leagues with his Toca project. He tells me about his first solo albums, and how a tour with Germany’s DJ Scientist influenced him to change his approach to the music game. I ask him about starting Fake Four at a time when indie labels were dropping like flies, and he talks about the slow-but-steady growth they’ve experienced since 2008.Mike Riley’s art this week is an homage to The Pharcyde’s Labcabincalifornia. This episode is hosted by Splice Today.
