The interview took place during the Red Bull Music Academy's 'New York City To the SF Bay' lecture series in San Francisco. Oh yeah, and the whole thing is also pretty damn funny.

                When the bats come to Wuhan the night comes Over East Lake wide, dark, flat and in flames On fire at first but the conflagration On the water’s only the reflections Of fiery giant smoke stacks spewing Up sparks. One thought becomes another. Fuck! The Yangzte was dirty and yellow—Yuck! I saw heads and an inner tube bobbing Not Chairman Mao’s of course who swam across Years ago. Other swimmers do it now. For all his mistakes they still like Mao. Why? He was persistent. Coming across The sky more bats than I have ever seen Hover, devour, converge and unconvene.
