Charlie Looker is a special one. Born and raised in New York City, he’s been on a very personal and intense musical journey that started as a young teenager going to shows at the Knitting Factory. He was a founding member of Zs, which he left to start Extra Life. Since disbanding Extra Life Charlie has been busy with Seven Teares and most recently Psalm Zero, who will release their first full-length “The Drain” on March 4th. For this conversation Charlie and I drink waaaaay too much whiskey and get into it, knocking over mic stands, arguing about Death Grips and throwing vaguely antisemitic snaps at one another. This one gets weird…
