Who are you?
My name is Nat Damm. I play in Akimbo.
I’m Jon and I play bass and do vocals in Akimbo. I have also been known as The Gateekeeper, and if you have any information leading to the whereabouts of the Keymaster I would appreciate any help you can lend.
Where are you from?
I’m from Seattle, I live there now.
I’m from Seattle. Yes, I’ve heard of Nirvana. No, I didn’t know Kurt Cobain. Yeah, we have the space needle. Yes, it rains a lot. And yeah, everyone here drinks coffee all the time.
What do you do?
I spend 30% of the year playing rock and going on tour, and the rest of the time I get paid to play videogames.
I play drums in Akimbo. For a living I am a freelance designer. I mainly design concert posters. I do a little t-shirt design here and there, record artwork and layout. I am also the booking agent for an all ages venue near Seattle called The Old Fire House.
What are you working on?
A bowl of chili and a cold beer.
Akimbo just came home from a US tour. We stopped in louisville KY for three weeks to record two albums. One will be released on Alternative Tentacles August 21st, its called Navigating the Bronze. The other album is called Jersey Shores and will be released on another label sometime in 2008. As far as today goes, I’m going to work on album art for a band called The Fucking Wrath and then making a few posters for a venue in Las Vegas. Then I’ll have some beers and watch TV.
I’m gonna watch Lost in bed with my woman and my cat.
What’s next is an amazing tour with DMBQ! we’ll take it easy after this short west coast tour and then hopefully do either a big US tour or Europe in the fall. then we’ll grow beards and wait out the winter.
When will you be here?
DMBQ is the most insane live band that has ever lived. We are going to have to resort to all kinds of ridiculous shenanigans to make up for our comparatively lackluster snore fest of a show.
just go and see them, they will blow your mind.
Anything else you want to add?
The new album NAVIGATING THE BRONZE is out August 2007, available from us and Alternative Tentacles. Good beer drinking music, excellent tunes to have an arm punching contest to, a great soundtrack for a pillow fight.
