THUNDERCAT: WALK OF SHAME
LA jazz mutant and bass virtuoso (he’s been playing since the age of four), Thundercat, spent his late teens living out our thrash fantasies: at 17 he was recruited by Suicidal Tendencies to replace the Metallica-bound Robert Trujillo. While we were huffing glue and learning algebra we’d never need, he was touring with Suicidal and slappin’ out adolescence anthem, Institutionalized.
Now it’s Monday morning and his soulful celluloid stroll to the soundtrack of Walkin’, taken from 2011′s Golden Age of Apocalypse EP, is dealing out Monday morning commute flashbacks. After spending approximately 54 hours of weekend tinkering with our brain chemistry, we too had to dodge zombie children, horse-faced neighbours and a laser-vision equipped Fly-Lo. Just substitute his smug grin with cold sweats and crippling paranoia.
