Mike D talks to Zane Lowe

Mike Diamond called into the BBC 1's Zane Lowe Show earlier today from his home in California, where he was "about to get ill on a sandwich." Mike told Lowe that Beastie Boys plan to release Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2 this spring. Whether the band will tour has not yet been decided. It will be Adam Yauch's decision. Mike also spoke about the band's new video/short film (a "filmeo" as he called it) as well as explained to Lowe how to prepare steel-cut oats.

Listen to streaming audio of the Zane Lowe Show at BBC.co.uk. The interview begins around the 1:14 mark.

Audio rip please? I can't listen to all the show to hear MikeD. Zane plays awful music..horrible. It's painful to listen.

I have the same request for an audio rip. We're supposed to listen to a 3 hour show to hear 2 minutes of interview? That's whack.

Don't waste your time. There's nothing new in the interview. We already knew Beasties are releasing Hot sauce commitee this year & MCA is better. Why does Mike D talk to a joker like Zane???

can you not just skip to the part of the interview?

What the hell? Zane Lowe pronounced Yauch's name as Youch. Not cool.

Thanks for the time mark of the interview. Hearing Mike be silly is always a joy for me.

With the interview mark time I was able to fast forward to Mike's interview. I was surprised he said he's used to people hating on him. Who hates on Mike D? It's like hating on puppies. It's weird Zane said Yauch's name wrong even though he has talked to the Beastie Boys many times before.

When I try to fastforward it times out. God damn BBC...

Thanks for the interview link. Is the video Mike talked about the Fight for Your Right short Yauch is showing at Sundance Festival or something different? I thought the FFYR short was completed because the festival begins soon. FFYR short and Beastie Boys filmeo, Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 and Part 2, Yauch and Youch....it's all so confusing!

@Elz87 I assumed the filmeo is the FFYR short film.
