Dallas Kincaid and His 5 For Insight

Ok, I know… I know… you didn’t download netBloc Vol. 18’s 42 page liner-note booklet… pfft… now I’m just rubbing it in your face that you’re missing out by not downloading netBloc PDF booklets. Raw dog rockabilly style… here’s a mini-interview with Dallas Kincaid.

01 - Why free music? I didn’t want to sell my new album because I wanted it to be heard by a lot of people. Nowadays it’s difficult to sell music, especially if you’re unknown… France is not a Rock ‘n’ Roll country, by the way… my country doesn’t “feed” my music…

The Stones remain my favourite band… then I discovered Midnight Oil, an under-appreciated band… I later started to listen blues, country and rockabilly.

05 - Ribs, Fried Chicken, Crépes or Corn Bread? Ribs and fried chicken forever… when I was in Austin my friends brought me to all the genuine mexican restaurants… In a month I doubled my weight…
