Kevin Parker shared a snippet of a new song, ‘Disciples’, last night during his Reddit AMA, which you can read here.
If you don’t feel like reading the whole AMA, here are a few snippets that I thought were interesting…
- Kevin didn’t realize so many people thought he sounded like John Lennon until his brother and Sean Lennon both told him on separate occasions.
- He’s very inspired by Kanye West because of his confidence in spite of all the judgment thrown his way.
- His rap name would be Defs Worthit.
- Up until recently, he didn’t receive any money for the records that sold outside of Australia and he doesn’t seem to care if you buy his records or not since most of the money goes to the record labels anyways. He’s more satisfied with the emotional connection fans experience with his music.
- Kevin would be a scarf designer if he wasn’t a musician.
- His two favorite guitar pedals he uses are the Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Reverb and the Diamond Vibrato.
- His favorite recent records that he could think of at the time were; Air – Talkie Walkie, Supertramp – Breakfast in America, Michael Jackson – Thriller, Queens of the Stone Age – Rated R, Dungen – Ta Det Lugnt and Dungen – 4.
- Kevin is not a vinyl guy.
