Extra Mundane V's Extramundane

So this week Extra Mundane caught up with Vegan Spoken Word Electro Rap Duo Extramundane, who are currently promoting their new album Extra Medium.

So guys you’ve been causing a bit of a stir recently with your song Preachin (to the Converted). Can you explain a bit it for our readers?

Yeah it’s basically about preaching… to the converted. So we start off by talking about stuff we like and then we talk about stuff we don’t like, I mean it really does show both sides of the argument. Its also quite condescending and an insult to the audiences level of intelligence.

So would you say you guys are political?

Everything we do is political… hang on I’ve just got to go for a shit.

So where do you sit politically?

Well I’d say we’re in a sort of apathetic middle ground, though we do hate the man.

Would you care to elaborate on that?

Well I mean it could have been a good film but we both feel that the script let it down. And Samuel L Jackson’s abilities as a comic actor were completely wasted.

So to get back to your new album, the titles very clever, can you explain how you came up with it?

Well I wanted to call it Wheat Free Beats but Derek had his heart set on Extra Medium so in true democratic style we flipped a coin for it. Its quite edgy because obviously you can get extra large and extra small but you cant get extra medium. Its basically a paradox.

So your on tour at the moment, is there anything you specifically ask for in your rider?

Well we both have nut allergies so we normally ask for everything to be nut free. But apart from that we also ask for pulses, grains and frozen vegetable sausages.

So final question… the name, did you steal it off us?


Are you sure?


Come on…

We didn’t steal it.

I think you did.







Well at least we know how to spell it.

Extramundane will be touring around the UK over the next month to promote their new album. Or alternatively check back here to catch a glimpse of their tour diaries which they will be recording especially for us. Check out the first installment below!

'I'm influenced by Fat Les'

Not content with being the toast of the art world, notorious urban graffiti artist Blankstain is now turning his attention to music.

He said recently, 'I'm really influenced by people like... erm whats his name? You know the guys behind Fat Les. The way they makes the transition between art, comedy, acting and music and yet they manage to master them all. Their truly multi-disciplined artists. Thats what I'm aiming for. Except with crude drawings of cocks and balls and rap music. I've mastered graffiti, now I'd like to try my hand at music. The first song I'm going to release, Word Up I'm Blankstain, is basically my manifesto.'

Blankstain went on to add, 'Its no Fat Les but its easily as good as Swamp Thing.'

Judge for yourselves below!

The only thing Extra Mundane can say is, IS THERE NOTHING THIS GUY CAN'T DO?

Anyway we're off to watch that video again. On our laptop. In the toilet.

The Woes of the 80's Alternative Comedians

You know what I don't understand about 80's Alternative comedians?

Why we're were they all so pissed off with Thatcher?

I mean what's so bad about Carol Thatcher?
