E.Town Concrete Frontman: “I Coulda Been Fred Durst Right Now God Damnit”

In a reflective interview with Shed My Skin TV, E.Town Concrete spoke of coming up during the nu metal boom and their experiences and struggles touring with bands from the genre. As vocalist Anthony “Ant-Money” Martini jokingly put it at one point in the chat:

“We got to do a lot of cool shit, we can look back and be grateful have no regrets about it. I mean maybe I regret that we didn’t sell out sooner… I coulda been Fred Durst right now god damnit. We shoulda had “Southtown” in this motherfucker.”

The band later went into how various people mistook the P.O.D. track “Southtown” as being an E.Town Concrete track, telling them they had heard them on the radio.

Throughout the course of the newly-posted chat, which took place last September, the band look back at their career and the obstacles they faced trying to establish their more hardcore oriented mix of rap & metal during the nu metal boom.

      Man am I surprised to see something about E Town on here. I’ve been convinced nobody outside NY/NJ gave a flying fuck about them. I got Time 2 Shine and The Second Coming when I was in the 8th grade and my mind was blown. Fun Fact: Anthony is the vocals on Chris Jericho’s current into song.

        I’ve seen them open up for pretty much every band in NYC and NJ over the years. A bit cheesy looking back now but they had a few good tunes and they always got the crowd moving. I saw that you won tickets to see Nile from WSOU, too. Is that the Stage 48 show on Easter?

          Yeah I’m going. Never heard of the openers either so I’m probably just going in for Nile. My only recommendation is if you want to drink in the city before for cheap, stop at Rudy’s on 44th and 9th. Great place, cheap beer, free hot dogs, and it’s only a few blocks away from the venue.

          Good looks Braj. I usually get trashed on the train on my way in from NJ. Then smoke a blunt on my friends rooftop he lives right in that area. I’ll def try to hit Rudys now that I’m in the know.
