Biography

Band Members: Adebisi: Vocals, Patricio Amerena: Synths, Paul Fleming: Bass, Allen Russell: Violin, Michael Stewart: Drums, Paul Trinko: Guitar, Kiran Vedula: Keys


Words and interview by Bryon Cherry for Fan-Belt.Com


Rambling through Bay View’s Hide House practice space, the presence of ghosts strikes you. Graffitied homages to Milwaukee’s musical past and present. From this appropriately disheveled atmosphere booms the authoritative thump of The Fresh Cut Collective. They could be termed “New Milwaukee”- diverse yet cohesive, soul-shining with the grit of punk attitude; all steeped in the heaviness of rock. The band spoke with Fanbelt about music and dope basement parties in mansions.


F-b: What made y’all get together and go all Voltron for this new project?


Adebisi (MC): Well, I first started rapping back when I was about six but I got really serious about it around the age of 14. I started putting out actual cassette tapes with my rhymes back in the day and had been grinding every since. I used to have shows and go to shows at Stonefly which is how I met Kiran .


Kiran (Keys): Yeah, that was around last summer. My old band (Fly Neurotic) had broken up and I really wanted to start a project with an MC. At that point I was looking for anybody who might rap. I would just ask any random person that came into Stonefly and that’s how Adebisi and I decided we would try working together.


F-b: What were the first few practices like?


Adebisi: Basically the first practices was just me freestyling for hours over any beats the band had put together.


Allen Russell (violin): Once the band got together we did a lot of work even without Adebisi to try and get our parts to sound as close to being samples as we possibly could.
