That’s Cole.  You may know him as Purple Bastard – his musical alter ego.  If you’re like us, you know him as drama department royalty from back in the 90’s, when we all met in high school.  These days, Cole’s a family man, substitute teacher, and a keeper of a formidable beard.  He stopped by to chat about writing comedy, slicing and dicing sound, and drop some his heady, slowed down grooves on us.

Purple Bastard performs at Leon’s Lounge in mid-town Houston on the 3rd Thursday of every month for Vibes.  You might have caught his bi-monthly hip hop event called Turnin’ Headz.

The song we heard during the Episode was H Up off of Purple Bastard,’s 2018 release, FA’LEAL.  The song during the outro was Astral, off of Beat Cinema, also put out in 2018.

Have you performed or gone to Vibes or Turnin’ Headz?  What did you think of the show?  Tell us in the comments or on Twitter or Instagram by using #chattycrafties.
