Amebix was absolutely epic in Seattle! I've waited years to see them and never really thought I would get the opportunity. Rob Miller, Stig, and Roy Mayorga (formerly of Nausea) hit the stage with 'Winter' and ran through a barrage of classics like 'The Darkest Hour', 'The Power Remains', 'Arise', 'Drink & Be Merry', 'I.C.B.M.', 'Axeman', 'Largactyl', 'Chain Reaction', and 'Coming Home'. And was that a tribal version of 'No Gods No Masters'? The set was brilliant, the sound was good, and I didn't get scabies. Despite all the "hard times coming down" it wasn't exactly all frowns and snarling armageddeon...

"Drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die..."

Not even my ridiculously short stature could keep me from grinning uncontrollably in the company of The Baron & Stig! I really need to work on my "serious" face. Special thanks to Caroline and the merch guy with the long hair and beard for graciously replacing my stolen shirts that night. Your trust restored my faith. No thanks to the anonymous fuckface backstage who walked off with my shirts when I went to get a beer. How low can a punk get? ARISE!

Contests Are Such Easy Prey...

From Beyond (1986) is coming to Portland's Mission Theater on glorious 35mm! Stuart Gordon's perverse romp through Arkham's darkest laboratories unabashedly basks in the outrageous (hot pink!) afterglow of his earlier H.P. Lovecraft adaptation The Reanimator (1985), but lends its own kinky surprises to the Miskatonic mythos. I'd love to throw a contest but, to make this event even more sweet, it's FREE! This screening at the Mission Theater kicks off Super Trash Movie Marathon running all weekend at the Bagdad Theater. Got that? From Beyond is Thursday at the Mission but the Super Trash Marathon is all weekend-long at the Bagdad. If you live in Portland be sure to come out for The Brood, The Brain That Wouldn't Die, Death Wish 3, and a bunch of other killer flicks! Ok, ok. You want a contest? What band had an LP called From Beyond and what artist painted the cover?? That's two questions knuckleheads, and you gotta answer 'em both. Be the first to post the correct answers and you win 2 ALL-WEEKEND MARATHON PASSES! Good luck!

one-night only!

PORTLAND FIENDS! Please join me as we raise a toast (ahem) to the launching (gulp) of my NEW WEBSITE this Monday January 19th @ 10pm at Devil's Point! The ravishing Mistress Malice will preside...

Special thanks to Meghan Bachman, who lovingly re-designed my website and would certainly not allow me to post a photo of her ass on this blog!

Zero Tolerance

Be sure to check out issue #26 of UK metal mag Zero Tolerance! Tom Warrior of Celtic Frost interviews HR Giger and they even asked my humble opinion about the Necronomical Master! There's also a feature on Darkthrone that notes the "lo-fi appeal" of my artwork. This is the Nov/Dec 2008 issue but because it's printed in England it only recently became available in the States. Great publication with an ear to the underground and a very refreshing design. Pick it up!
