Delayed somewhat due to work and some medical downtime, here’s the first of the interviews from the Piratefest date at the Arches in Glasgow, on the 19th of October. Eric W. Brown is a very busy man, and one of his projects is the extreme chiptune dance metal one-man-act Rainbowdragoneyes.
I talked to Eric (and his scary cyborg sidekick) about his other projects and how he came to be on the tour as Rainbowdragoneyes rather than part of Swashbuckle. We discuss the weather in the UK, how ECDT came about as a genre, whether Sonic or Mario is the best and what the best thing about being a pirate is.
Oh, the squeaks and explosion in the background were due to a couple of people setting up birthday decorations for Lagerstein’s singer!
Thanks to Eric for his time, and to Nico the tour manager who was incredibly laid back about ferrying me between all four acts!
