321 Week is back, beginning with Brooklyn’s Blissed Out. Thanks to their feverish, psychoactive jams we spent the weekend in an altered state, experiencing bizarre, intense, paradigm-shifting imagery and regressing into a mostly amorphous mass of conscious, primordial matter. We also went to the park. The duo answered our questions from their base in Bushwick’s Market Hotel.
1. “9/11 was an inside job.”
2. “Alex’s aunt and uncle have Sid Vicious’s ashes in a coffee can at a Jewish cemetery in Pennsylvania.”
3. “Total Slacker rulez.”
1.“Suicidal thoughts by The Notorious B.I.G. This song set the foundation for ghost crunk 15 years ago.”

2.“All Apologies by Nirvana. I stole a cassette copy of In Utero from a vintage clothing store in Williamsburg last month. It was priced at $7, HA. It stayed on blast during our recent trip down to Austin and back.”

1. “Be heard on Hot 97 everyday.”
You can buy a vinyl-only recording of a November ’09 Blissed Out live set from Insound. The band is currently hiding out in the Market Hotel recording a full length and will begin a US tour in support of it in June.
