The Hangover After The Nightmare Before Christmas

8 Dec

walsby

Just stumbled in from a very long weekend in Minehead, Somerset for ATP’s Nightmare Before Christmas 2008, as curated by Mike Patton & THE MELVINS. And man, am I beat. Got soooo much gushing praise for the ignoble ones called THE MELVINS – not to mention MASTODON and JAMES BLOOD ULMER and THE DAMNED and . . . yeah ya just might have to come by and entice with a six pack to hear all about it. Do expect to read a summary of the weekend’s highlights here at PS Recon in the not-to-distant future.

For now, get a load of the handdrawn caricature of Yours Truly morphing into Henry Rollins fronting BLACK FLAG, ca. 1984. Noted SST Records-loving artist Brian Walsby of DOUBLE NEGATIVE drew this of me in no time flat as I checked out his merch table. It’s no doubt the closest I’ll ever get to actually rockin’ with Ginn, and my wife says Brain nailed my shit-eating grin perfectly.
