First of, just want to thank you for participating in this edition of Infidel Interviews. Could you start off by giving a little information about you to the audience? Whatever you feel comfortable with, but name, age, and where you live would be pretty standard?
My name is Saehwan Lafayette Koo. I am 101 years old. We are based out of Los Angeles CA. Ive been in LA for about ten years now but grew up in Texas and Louisiana.
How do you enjoy where you live? Is there a vibrant music community where you are? Would you say you find that your local scene influences your attitude and/or creativity?

There is really no difference from then and now as far as what Vertigo Shock and music means to my crew and I. I always move forward and leave the past where it belongs.

But personally I love having a diverse crowd and people that enjoy multiple genres as i do. I can really say I have a specific genre of music i enjoy, just whatever feels good at the time. I can wake up to The Cramps one day and other days I'll have Beethoven playing in the background.
Would you say that your choice to pursue music has changed your life since you started? Would you say that creativity has evolved you spiritually, emotionally, or logically?
