Nerdcore Rising (2005)


Feeling a bit camera shy


In late 1999, MC FRONTALOT pioneered the subgenre of rap music called Nerdcore Hip-Hop, a once harmless movement that has metastasized into an internet phenomenon. Nerdcore's live-audience draw grows yearly, with acts such as Frontalot, MC Chris, MC Lars, and Optimus Rhyme filling increasingly larger venues on national tours. Damian's independently produced MC Frontalot tracks have earned a devoted audience and his first retail album Nerdcore Rising (released Aug 2005) is in its third printing and has been featured on the front page of the iTunes site. He is the official rapper of Penny Arcade (net’s most popular comic with 3.5 million daily readers) and headlines at their annual convention to an audience of several thousand.

MC Frontalot has been featured in XXL Magazine, The Guardian (UK), and Wired News Online, on NPR’s “Day to Day,” CBC’s “Definitely Not the Opera,” WNYC’s “Brian Lehrer Show,” and Pacifica Radio’s “Technology Bytes.” He is slated to appear in Wired Magazine (Sept ’06), on “Whatever” (Channel 4, UK) and “Barrio 19” (MTV Europe), and in the book Walk This Way: A Shadow History of Hip-Hop in White America by Jason Tanz (Bloomsbury Press, Feb ‘07). His first contribution to Sesame Street is a song about a toilet paper factory, featured on the DVD “Elmo’s Potty Time” (Aug ’06).

A documentary feature about his 2006 national tour is in the works from Vaguely Qualified Productions (New York) and is expected in late 2007.

He towers over small hedges and ferns at a mighty 6’1.
