For today's Roll Call we call out Philip Frobos of Carnivores.
Who are you?
I'm Philip Frobos, and I play bass and sing for CARNIVORES (used to be Chainestereo). I also play bass with those Untied States kids. I like dead culture, cheese grits and David Bowie.
Describe yourself in three words.
Rambunctious, Paranoid, Blue
Who dead or alive would most you like to meet?
I'd like to roll with Nancy Sinatra back in her heyday, I wanna be her Lee Hazelwood. That record Nancy & Lee destroys me, if you can find it on the internet you should get the bonus track that doesn't come on the LP called "Arkansas Coal." I don't know how they wrote that song, it might as well be an epic, but not like lame epic rock.
Who would you most like to slap in the face?
Dj Dj Dj Dylan. He wouldn't get an Oh Snap picture with me. Maybe next week.
What song do you wish you had written?
Elvis Costello or Elvis Presley?
LP, CD or MP3?
My favorite is LP, since I moved to Atlanta I've been building up a decent collection. I like that its a little more engaging, I like to think of records as two parts. Although I do love my morning on Marta with my iPod. It's a toss up, those new LPs that come with the mp3 download card are brilliant!
If you could start one trend, what would it be?
Bring the word "Rad" back up to its former dynasty in "cool" synonyms. Also bring "Game On" from Wayne's World back, but then I probably wouldn't want to say them anymore. How about Swatch?
If you could end one trend, what would it be?
Overly HUGE sunglasses that hide ugly girls' faces. Those things are as good as beer goggles but you don't even get to be drunk.
With whom would you most like to play a game of spin the bottle?
Zooey Deschanel. She seems like a pretty rad kid.

I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
Their fees were onerous, to say the least. $16 per ticket for "convenience," and it's…
That poster is for the Iggy Pop show on March 11 1983 @ 688 club…
