Rotland Dreadful - Make It Look Fancy


I have a new comic available through Rotland Press as part of their Dreadful series. http://rotlandpress.com/store-1/

"The ROTLAND DREADFULS series is an homage to the cheaply-produced 19th century English pamphlets known as "Penny Dreadfuls"— so named because the original cost was one penny and they contained stories considered shocking and sensational. The fourth issue in this series concerns "making it look fancy."

PRINT RUN IS LIMITED TO ONLY 200 COPIES.

Music Video for Massive Vulva Cantaloupe



Here is the music video I made for my band Lovely Little Girls. It's our 'hit' Massive Vulva Cantaloupe...Magma as channeled through Kool Keith, maybe? Joe Jackson meets The Contortions? There is much face flapping, awesome horn arrangements and plenty of cantaloupe abuse here.

camera: V. Montgomery, Pauline Sauer, Gregory Jacobsen / edit: Gregory Jacobsen, Pauline Sauer

We have a new record out on Skin Graft records.

Here is a video of our performance at the Empty Bottle on Friday- a two camera shoot of a suite of songs: Poor-Fitted Boys/Pressed Face Downwards/You Fuck Me Anyway. I am very excited about this fantastic lineup that features guitarist Jim Cooper (Detholz!), keyboardist Jon Beavo (Hot Garbage), drummer Charlie Werber (Guzzlemug, Murmur), saxophonist Cory Bengtsen, and backup singers Carmen Armillas (Cheer-Accident) and Sacha Mullin. Our next show is at Cobra Lounge with Arriver on January 13th.

Alex Perkolup and I have resurrected our old band Lovely Little Girls. We collected an amazing batch of Chicago musicians to perform our suite of songs entitled "Cleaning the Filth From a Delicate Frame" that we have been working on for the past couple years. We will be playing tomorrow at the Empty Bottle in Chicago. My favorite Chicago music writer Monica Kendrick wrote a great piece on the reformation and upcoming show in this week's Chicago Reader.



I have also put our two CDs up on Bandcamp for free download.
