Hair Apparent

Evol Egg Nart fights the evil music industry empire by ignoring it

It is that sense of exuberant irrelevance that typifies Evol Egg Nart. "I am not going to go outta my way to let the record labels know we exist," Rollason declares. "I kinda don't give a shit whether they know we exist or not because it's not even about that. I'm just trying to do [the music] and spread it, and hopefully, yes, at one point ignite enough of a spark that I can live off of it. Extremely modestly would be great."

If not? "Well, then, I'm going to go down to Taco Bell and become a manager," he cracks. "I'm 27, and I'm still at home, and at some point, even though it means you have to bend over, I'm going to have to get a job because you can't live rent-free with the parents forever. But that kind of life sucks the soul right out of you anyways," he says of the nine-to-five work routine. "People get up, they go to work, come home, and veg out in front of the television. It's part of the whole evil structure that exists. But I'm fighting it, man; I'm fighting it."

Evol Egg Nart allows Rollason and friends to put up resistance. "When I work with somebody, it's because I want to do that," he says. "If I could play in the garage with the people that I love to play with and record records and put them out, I would be happy. What I like to do is write songs. And I like making records. The process of making a record is an art in itself."
