Darko The Super Whips DEVO & Zev Love X Samples Into 55th Self-released Album, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Darko! (The Witzard Premier)



"Whoopsy daisy never lazy, so I heave-ho / Whippin' sh*t like DEVO, whip it good (That thang!) / Whippin' sh*t like Elmer Fudd and Mr. Fudd slang / Listen to my guitar twang as I sang," Zev Love X tactfully rhymed on KMD's "Constipated Monkey" from their shelved 1993 album, Bl_ck B_st_rds. The Witzard's favorite demented beat-maker Darko The Super sampled a bit of Zev Love X's "Constipated Monkey" verse for appropriately-titled "Whippin' Sh*t Like DEVO" from his landmark 55th album, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Darko! but I'll let him explain the rest: "Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Darko! samples and is inspired by my favorite New Wave band, DEVO. My dad was the one who got me into DEVO, which is his favorite band. He has their debut Q: Are We Not Men? album cover tattooed on his leg. The album cover I chose to make parodies the original and utilizes the #2 pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, Darko Millicic; my alias, "Darko," still frustrates Detroit Pistons fans and recently was part of the reason HipHopDX's Marcel Williams hated me." Ahead of Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Darko!'s Easter Sunday surprise release, Darko The Super unleashed "Watered Down Demon Fuzz" and "Satan" from his next album, Watered Down Demon Fuzz, as well as Marcel Williams-bashing "HipHopDX Bad, Darko Good."


"The opener of this album samples the line "whippin' sh*t like DEVO" from KMD's Zev Love X (now known as DOOM,) as well as a slew of DEVO tracks. I produced and recorded this album in one week, besides the beat that closes the album, which is something I made back in 2013, sampling their [DEVO Live: The] Mongoloid Years album," Darko The Super enthusiastically continued. Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Darko! was produced under Darko's production alias, Doc Heller and spans the course of one 15:21-minute EP-length track; although, it's also available as seven separate tracks on Darko The Super's Bandcamp for an extremely reasonable Name-Your-Price basis. Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Darko! includes countless DEVO sample flips and cleverly inter-spliced interpolations or lyrical allusions to Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore, The Pack's 2006 hit single "Vans," Fear Factor, B.B. King, Sum 41, Crazy Town's "Butterfly," The Simpsons, Eazy-E, and DEVO's own Duty Now for The Future (1979). Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Darko! is now available for streaming or download MASS CONSUMPTION from Darko The Super's Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages, as is his Rock sample-flipping album Apocalyptic Bastard and entire discography. Darko is planning to release his next solo album, currently titled Watered Down Demon Fuzz, "sometime later this summer" and plans to unleash Return to The Hell Hole Store with partner-in-crime ialive on June 23rd. Just this past weekend, The Hell Hole Store announced their upcoming "its all down south from here." mini-tour with fellow Philly emcee Torito, which will span eight shows between 4/27-5/10. "Duty Now for The Super Spuds! This album samples the legendary DEVO. Thank you for your inspiration, please don't sue me.


Love,

Darko."
