AFROPUNK: New Video From Deantoni Parks’ Art World Killer, Formerly Known as Kudu!
So excited to get confirmation that indie band Kudu (an AfroPunk favorite) is being resurrected under the name AWK (i.e. Art World Killer). Expect an album this fall, but in meanwhile, we have new music and visuals for ya! below
Singer/songwriter Sylvia Black, aka Betty Black (listen to her solo project here), is telling us: “Art World Killer (AWK) was born after after KUDU’s ‘Death Of The Party’ with the addition of bandmate Nick Kasper. Since then Deantoni Parks was asked to join The Mars Volta as their drummer as well as side stints with MeShell N’Degeocello and John Cale. Deantoni saw this as an opportunity to release AWK music under Omar Rodriguez Lopez’s own artist label with promo thru Sargent House. Finally this Fall they will have their ‘Last Laugh’. Eventually we would like to use AWK’s music and live shows as a platform for other visual artists to be seen. Collaboration is key.” - We’ll be listening, and watching! - Lou C-D
