Blowfly, the Original Dirty Rapper Brings Something Long and Hard to the Firebird Tonight
There's been a lot of mixed feelings about the documentary, specifically the way you two are portrayed, any thoughts on the experience as a whole?
"Uncle" Tom Bowker: It's twofold; on one hand I'm glad the film is out there and spreading the gospel of Blowfly. Having "Blowfly" be a searchable term on Netflix, Hulu, IMDB and iTunes opens doors and means a lot less explaining to the uninitiated. The film looks good, and as entertainment, it is better than most music documentaries.
On the other hand, the film was re-cut after the premiere at SXSW in 2010 and the end result is that a small minority thinks that the 'Fly and I don't get along.
Which is the cut I've seen and yup, it does seem that way.
UT: That is dead wrong. We are enthusiastic partners in musical perversion. Some self-declared critics think that Clarence should be in a nursing home and not doing what he loves, which is performing and being funky. To them, it is somehow "sad" to be vital and able to rock with authority into your 70's.
Not only to me, but to the guys in the band and his fans across the globe, it is truly heroic and inspiring.
And 'Fly, how do you feel?
BF: Being a movie star is great. I love the movie.
"Should I Fuck this Big Fat Ho?"
Ok, all bullshit aside, do think Obama's done a good job, you know, met and/or exceeded expectations?
BF: No! Jesus himself couldn't do that. Obama is helping everyone who is righteous, which is good. However, he ain't the first Black President, like you've said before, I did that in 1988!
Well, there was Jefferson.
BF: All the guys are screaming!
And Clinton who loved cheeseburgers and BBWs.
BF: All the bitches are creaming!
And now Obama.
BF: There's a nigga in the White House again!
"Girl, Let Me Cum in Your Mouth"
What's next for Blowfly?
BF: There's our new album, Black in the Sack coming out on LP. We've got CDs and tapes on the road with us, but it ain't out until it's out on record. After that, we are gonna go back to Australia for the third time, so I can hang out with my friend the Transmanian Devil and give those freaks down under, the same thing you're gonna see after you read this: the World's Baddest....onstage with a live band.
Which is The Greatest Show on Earth! What you hear at a Blowfly show may be disgusting, but it's 100% true!
