Drab City met when they were seventeen. They worked at the same factory. One day, while on coffee break, Asia saw Chris with a record under his arm.
“Is that ‘The Clown’?”
“Yes. Do you like Charles Mingus? I just bought this off the old man…the riveter. He’s worked here all his life.”
“I won’t work here all my life,” she told him.
“Let’s get out of here and go listen to this thing,” he said.
They never went back to work and have been living off the dole and making music together ever since.
Drab City’s debut LP due for release June 2020 via Bella Union.
