I was proud to draw 2 of the latest Nitetrotter sessions pix, that came out this week....the art is abused by my usual mediums, Sharpies, and collaged mediums....the claps pic i chilled on, because i felt it represented them well, and Zilmrah(O) i freaked out on, cause i felt it represented him well! seein Z(O) play as of late a few times(after he put out a cass. on NITCO, and toured with Nitco artists SINJOTHRAWMASH and up and coming artist FLUID{full length out on nitco at some pointed}) The Claps played at MIXTAPES! a while back, i was in the middle of doing a tattoo when i heard the beats come thru the walls, dropped my machine, tore off my gloves and ran into the other room, where a dozen teenagers twisted there bodies to some of the DOPEST cuts ive heard lately. After theyre set, the keyboardist was much obliged to show me his synths, i had to tear myself away from the keys to go back to tattn, and what im left with is a sweet memory, Dig it!

Their will be a very limited lathe coming out on SCOTCH TAPES out of Canada, of EYES doing a Remix of the HEALTH track WE ARE WATER....we call it (OUR BONES GROW IN THE DIRT) youll be able to get it from us on our upcoming tour with JESUS IS ANGRY, and i would assume the label....heres the cover. i pay homage to my pup G.G. that passed away recently his cute face is dead center of the back, he was a Boston Terrier, and i miss him dearly!


me,Bill, and Adam Carton went to the mayday march in downtown Chicago. We kicked these pigs asses, all up and down the block. true story!
picture taken by Adam Carton...then we ate like 2 lbs. of Carnita's(bill however did not)

Jorge Tapia Nitetrotter session....


So, a few weeks back, one of the "bands" im in EYES, did a weekend in Chicago....the first night after our show, we came back to the house/Nitetrotter studio of the Chicago sector, AKA. SCHWAG CITY!!! where a bunch of Weird's live...Now let me explain that in my late 20's, my partying has slowed down to the minimum of some MGD and a energy drink(maybe a cigarrette or 2, if im feeling feisty) so, around 4 am. i looked at NT's wonderful sound engineer Nathan Gregory and said"you wanna do some recording"?, his little,ginger face lit up(like the bratty kid from PROBLEM CHILD) and said "lets go!", this was a weekend of him recording approx. 6 bands in 2 days, so i was stoked that he said yes. the only problem was A. i didnt know what songs i was gonna record and B.our good friend Adam Carton was passed out in the studio snoring... Once i figured out what i was gonna record, we realized we could hear Adam snoring in the background...sweet. It was Cinco De Mayo, i poured my little heart out with Nathan giggling in front of me, and this link HERE is what came out. NOW, i must add that, drawing myself, would be, our good friend ROSE NOBLE who was just hired on as a new illustrator for NITETROTTER took on drawing a picture of me(swallowing a Klonopin after a gulp of water) which works for one the songs i recorded...goofy. SOOO, she did a great job and so did Nathan, i must also give credit where due to Mr.Bret Noble(Rose's Hubby) who single handedly got me into the mess we call a PUNK SCENE in the q.c., about 17 years ago. i love them all!(plus Rose brought their children to a White Mice show at Mixtapes! NOW THATS PUNK!) okay, done with the runon sentences. check out Lady Noble's art!!

EYES featuring Dr.Eugene Chadbourne

This is the cover to the new 6" lathe by EYES featuring Doc Eugene Chadbourne (simply a legend) it will be out on Scotch Tapes Label along with a few other EYES gems including a cassette of a bunch of crap we've recorded during some rough times, and a Lathe of a remix we did of HEALTH's "we are water"...During Doc Eugenes recording session on this track, i wouldn't let him hear the track until i hit record, thats when the magic happened with his Electric Rake, whilest i tinkered with effects on the rake(which he said has never be done before) it was a HONOR to work with the man!!

Mainey Wilson

Heres a pic i did of my new buddy Mainey Wilson who will be on the B-side of the FREE MORAL AGENTS 7" on Nitco! (Which im also proud to announce that Cedric Bixler-Zavala and myself will be collaborating on the art) which is also, at the plant and were waiting for Test Presses!! cant friggin wait!
