A:  It all began with a dream, really. The album.

Q:  Oh, there’s an album?

A:  13 songs, recorded with microphones and such. A variety of instruments.

Q:  I’d call that an album.

A:  We call it Dada.

Q:  Like the art movement?

A:  Yeah sure, but more like the combination of syllables.

Q:  So, like a linguistic connection?

A:  Language, self-awareness, introspection, a fresh pair of chinos. It’s all connected; not everything has to make sense.

Q:  Fair enough, but it all seems to be stemming from somewhere. Where is this where?

A:  You won’t find it on some cartographer’s desk. It comes from within. Equal parts collective unconscious and personal experience.

Q:  That’s a lot deeper than you look.

A:  We got a different mind.

Q:  If 50 years from now the kids are still grooving to this Dada  thing – success?

A:  50 years? Kids? We’d be happy if anyone was grooving to this 50 days from now.

Q:  What would you call that? Self-deprecation? An odd sense of humor?

A:  All we know is all we know, but 50 days of grooving sounds pretty good from where we sleep, especially on a pair of quality speakers.

Q:  Now you’re talking. OK, so I’m stuck on a deserted island with this Dada  LP. What else should I bring?

A:  A tin of mints and some unconventional serenity.

Q:  Do you have anything specific you’d like to express to get the fans going?

At this point in the conversation, the B Boys looked at one another, stood up, and walked away without saying a word. Before reaching the door, they flipped a switch on the wall and every single fan in the place turned on. They looked back over their shoulder and smiled.

One thing’s for certain: I wish I could be on a deserted island with them right now with a salty breeze flowing through my hair.
