The Butchery Boys’ Marcus Bush (aka Marco D’Beast), 27, is one busy dude. By day, he installs Murphy beds; by night, he cooks at The Hood Bar and Pizza. The Palm Desert resident and his psychobilly bandmates will be releasing a six-song EP, USDA Condemned, this spring; watch for updates on a release show by following the band on their Facebook page.
What was the first concert you attended?
I can’t remember, ha ha. Probably my uncle’s band, RedRum, when I was a wee lad.
What was the first album you owned?
Billy Idol, Rebel Yell, on vinyl.
What bands are you listening to right now?
Every Time I Die, He Is Legend, Between the Buried and Me, The Devil Makes Three, Koffin Kats, Propagandhi, August Burns Red, Mad Sin—usually something different every day.
What artist, genre or musical trend does everyone love, but you don’t get?
Dub step. I’m not one to bash anyone’s musical taste, I just don’t understand the monotony.
What musical act, current or defunct, would you most like to see perform live?
It would be awesome to see Sikth reunite.
What’s your favorite musical guilty pleasure?
Although I have a lot of them, Cradle of Filth, I’d say, is the most favorite. I just grew up on it and at one point had every album. One that I don’t usually admit to is old Blink-182. Ha ha.
What’s your favorite music venue?
Growing up, I was extremely fond of the (defunct) Showcase Theatre in Corona. Now it is definitely The Hood, not only because I work there, but because it’s a small, intimate venue where some really good shows have gone on in the past year or so.
What’s the one song lyric you can’t get out of your head?
There are a ton of them, but I always find me and my co-workers singing “Saturday Night” by the Misfits.
What band or artist changed your life? How?
Between the Buried and Me and their drummer, Blake Richardson. After hearing about them, I developed a whole new world of inspiration. Although their style of music is very different from what I typically play, it helped me to understand how to mash together multiple styles of music and the importance in tasteful transitions.
You have one question to ask one musician. What’s the question, and who are you asking?
I would probably ask Glenn Danzig if he would sign my fishnet shirts, ha ha.
What song would you like played at your funeral?
Christina Aguilera, “Genie in a Bottle.” (Don’t ask, ha ha.)
Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?
What song should everyone listen to right now?
“The Plank” by The Devil Makes Three. (Scroll down to listen.)
