G. Lucas Crane, 31; artist and member of the band Woods; Ridgewood, Queens
Says G. Lucas: “You should probably date me because I am created anew every second of the day. Also each night, I dream a new twisting labyrinth of fable that has a natural, psychic, satirical take on the day ahead, and I’ll tell you about it before my eyes open. Luck itself forms a strange glowing field around my body that you can almost see if the light is right, and I’m a cat whisperer. I basically dare you to date me.”
What G. Lucas wants: “I’m interested in someone who believes in and secretly plans for the imminent destruction of the world as we know it. Fire from the sky, great fissures in the pavement of the city choked with weeds, fighting with savage mutants over batteries and drinking water, the whole classic bit. But life goes on, and I really think we’ll have a great time spearing wild pigeons, collecting rain for drinking water and playing leather drums on abandoned rooftops.”
About G. Lucas’s music: “I do what’s called ‘tape manipulation’ if you’re being literal, or ‘weird shit’ if you’re watching me jam on the floor at a sweaty basement show. I record samples onto common cassette tapes and mix them by hand crossfader-style through effects, and into a found-sound wall of shifting texture. I know, I know, don’t tell your mom. I also play tapes and sing affected vocals in Woods and do a solo drone project called Nonhorse. It’s all very abstract and insectoid.”
G. Lucas’s top five favorite albums: Stevie Nicks’s Bella Donna, Captain Beefheart’s Trout Mask Replica, Love by Love, Can’s Ege Bamyasi and any Billie Holiday album
The last amazing concert he saw: “Are you kidding? It’s all a blur…Magic Markers at Shea Stadium. Unstoppable.”
See him live: “Come see Woods at the Bowery Ballroom (6 Delancey St between Bowery and Chrystie St; 212-533-2111, boweryballroom.com) with Wavves on Wed 15. You can meet my dad.”
