Cey Adams Spectacular, Ep. 7

July 26th, 2010

Cey Adams agrees to let The Brouhaha invade his personal space...and boy do we...keeping him captive for over an hour (despite initially promising to only take 15-20 minutes of his time).

To Beastie nerds everywhere, enjoy!

(Many thanks to Danny Jung from the Beastie Museum for hooking us up with the correct cyber transmission digits.)


Top Row: Cey in Brouhaha battle mode; his book DEFinition; and an album cover he worked on that helped Jim win 2nd place in a high school art contest.

Second Row: Cey's favorite B-Boy tag; Cey's tag; and his semi-controversial burger design.

Third Row: Cey's take on the sardine can and his favorite B-Boys photo (Ricky Powell).

Fourth Row: Peace and Unity sneakers; Cey at work; and another Cey Adams blockbuster!

    Good for Cey for breaking my record BUT… Jim, No Sleep Til Brooklyn DOES appear on Solid Gold Hits! What gives man?! Good interview though, excellent questions.

    Oh f*ck! You’re right.

    I appeared to have somehow confused Solid Gold Hits with Sounds of Science, while thinking of Solid Gold Hits. I even checked the track listing of Solid Gold Hits, but must’ve mentally checked it off in my head while it was staring me in the face.

    Cey should at least get a speaker cabinet from the Beastie-rama.

    That was a real treat! This is honestly one of the best beastie related interviews I have heard. So much inside info I didn’t know about. Please do more of these!

    Dude, seriously, you’re making a mockery of my once in a blue moon Podcast release schedule. Can you tone it down a bit. Maybe once every other month.

    In all seriousness, I’m secretly lovin’ this shit. Cey is the man, seems like a genuinely cool guy. I’d buy him a drink!

    Keep up the good work!!!!

    Cey is as cool than a cucumber in a bowl of hot sauce! Seriously one of my favorite podcasts so far. Wonderful to hear him talk about the old days of the Beasties and his own work. Super talented guy. And man as he was describing the Paul’s Boutique era I imagined the whole bit of them being free in the hot L.A. sun lol. I swear he sold me on that being the best BB era. But you know we all have had our own experiences with the BB’s that make it the best era for us so really all eras are EPIC IMO!
