Can you give some background on where you were born and your upbringing? When did you start playing music? I was born in London, England.
My parents decided to have me live in Pakistan from the age of two through to my sixth birthday. They were very young and trying to make a go of it in London. They felt Pakistan with my Grandmother, Aunts, Uncles, cousins all under one roof would be a better alternative than London. It certainly was albeit without them. My memories are still vivid from a very early age.
Then there was war. My father was an avid record collector and audiophile, however, so when I was back in London, I got to hear everything from Indian classical and movie music to Credence Clearwater Revival, Stevie Wonder and Pink Floyd.
No thought of ever playing music. I was into basketball, track and field athletics, movies and reading. Your band Nervous Cabaret points to many of the elements found on Brawl in Paradise that you would further develop.
There are also Ennio Morricone spaghetti-western guitars and Tex-Mex influences. Can you What A Party - Elyas Khan - Brawl In Paradise (CD about the formation of Nervous Cabaret and the musical influences of both the band and your solo work?
When that came to an end, I really did not know what to do. I continued to do bit parts in TV shows like Oz and perform in off Broadway plays but it just was not exciting to me anymore. It was hosted by the British-born country singer Jan Bell. I fooled around with a boom box, bang on a can style song experimentation and a little bit of very simple guitar stuff. Fred Wright, a trumpet player fresh out of conservatory in Denmark, spotted me and later we would crash parties until we met the rest of the lads that ended up being Nervous Cabaret.
I had the title for the band years before when I was just imagining actually forming one. I learned on the job and wrote a ton of songs that eventually got to the ears of the group who fleshed them out. We played a lot in NYC. When we did, it was indeed a proper affair: analog two inch tape at Trout Studios in Brooklyn with producer Danny Kadar.
My guitar work was influenced largely by punk bands like Bad Brains, the Clash, Fugazi and the gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt. That was the bedrock. Tex Mex? We even wrote a song together. Unpublished sadly. Brawl in Paradise can be described as a series of vignettes that discuss politics in the story-telling tradition of song narrative. Surprisingly, these are not at all love songs that are common in much of pop music.
What are some of the topics and themes you discuss on the album? I am interested in love as a topical idea, but much more so within the context of the real world and the day to day struggles, trials and tribulations of ordinary and, many times, not so ordinary peoples. Room of which the song is named after was simply the number of my studio that overlooked the entire city of Berlin from its high Album) location as part of the old East German Radio Station HQ, in the east side of the city on the river Spree.
I felt it to be the central point from which I would collect and disseminate my ideas and sounds So many issues, so much injustice, so much suffering, so much corruption and I begin the song with the idea of me in the comfort of my home doing something menial like washing the dishes and imagining how easily my view from my kitchen window, my wife milling about the house, everything I love could all be wiped out.
What if everything was horribly extinguished and I had to face what was left alone? The door bell rings and in walks Arundhati. I am very interested in life on the communal Album) fringe level. Both the outsider perspective and common every day existence that changes the landscape itself. I have spoken to a lot of veterans from several eras over the years and I have been trying to understand my own attitudes towards military service since I was a kid and experienced war firsthand.
What are your ideas about music and its many visual components? I feel the same in Album) ways. Album covers are important, surely, but firstly for me there are the images the music invokes for the listener.
The cinema for an audience of one, invisible to others.
