THE Q&A CRAWL: ROBIN PURSEY, HIP HIP KARAOKE You know that scene in Lost in Translation, where Scarlett Johanson sings ‘Brass in Pocket’, and Bill Murray wonders why Sean Penn won the Oscar for Mystic River? Well, if that scene was set in The Social on Little Portland Street, didn’t feature either Scarlett Johanson or Bill Murray, and replaced The Pretenders with Eminem, it would be a little bit more similar to Hip Hop Karaoke.
Free beer and prizes are the order of the day for those brave or sparked enough to spit their stuff to the bouncing ball. Cute little pink wigs are optional, but answering these questions wasn’t.
Crawl virgin or serial crawler? Either way, tell us why.
Now, after performing and loving it the last two years, I’m a serial crawler and once our work is done, have loved engaging with the rest of the Crawl.
What curatorial delights can we expect from you this year?
You can expect Camden Crawl attendees to be able to live out their rap fantasies and one of the wildest events of the weekend
If it were a film, your part in CC2012 would be…
8 Mile meets House Party.
Conjure up a Camden memory for us, Crawly or otherwise
I’ve got to say it was just last year when Odd Future played on the outdoor stage and mayhem ensued!
Favourite tune of the next 12 months?
A song by AKA Frank called ‘My D*ck Aint Racist’ that is now an anthem at all our events
Imagine CC2012 is over. What one sentence do you want people to say about you when they get home?
Can’t wait to see that on YouTube!
