Fancy Ketchup’s resident rapscallion, Jack Diablo was carved from Grecian marble, then stolen and housed in the British Museum. Sipping diet soda from a Thirsty-Two Ouncer and devouring day-old nachos from AM/PM, Diablo sat down with us for this week’s “10 Questions with . . .”
Jack Diablo, at six years old.
1. What’s the best aspect of working with FK?
The drugs and the whores. And the music, I guess. Did I mention the whores?
2. Can you tell us how the band formed?
Fire and magma churned below my feet and my ear drums were ruptured by the coming of Coxx. I was smitten, and after performing a Santeria ceremony and drinking a case of whiskey, I reluctantly signed a recording contract in blood. Not my blood, but blood nonetheless.
3. Tell us about the album “For Whom My Balls Toil.”
I was blacked out on peyote and absinthe for the recording; I haven’t heard it since, but people seem to enjoy it.
4. What is the future for FK?
EGOT. Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony, in that order.
Diablo cleaned up at the 2014 Grammy Awards, netting more than a dozen awards in multiple categories.
5. Who is your least favorite member of the band? Why?
I really hate Aguas sometimes. His work ethic and punctuality make me look bad.
6. Who is the true lead singer? Why?
All you have to do is read Plessy v. Ferguson. Separate but equal, bitches.
7. If you could overdose on one drug, what would it be?
The real question is: What drug have I NOT overdosed on?
And that would be weed. Not for lack of trying. I hot-boxed a minivan for 8 hours straight, but woke up the next day with only sore ass cheeks. But that’s another story.
8. Sexual preference?
9. Favorite ice cream flavor?
Rainbow sherbet with a whole bottle of Magic Shell on top.
10. Favorite FK song. Why?
“In Taiwan.” Because I had nothing to do with it.
