"nothing sadder than a balding potbelly striking a rock pose."
Queens of the Stone Age
The Dirtbombs (oh right...black guy)
The Von Zippers
man...i'm gonna get crucified for mentioning GBV aren't i?
No Mohawk for me then. my son had a mohawk all summer. He's growing his hair again now for a new one. I'm trying to grow a mullet right now. My wife is not stoked. I doubt I'll make it through the weekend without a haircut.
I still skate...does that make me sad as well? I hope to be skating into my 40s if i can. I have stopped trying to rock though. I'd like to but I thinks it's pretty much over.
For some reason I never think of buzzo as an old guy. He seems to stay the same age.
there was a horrible hippie/boogie band in seattle for years called jr. cadillac (there were members of the fabulous wailers and other famous old nw rock bands from the early 60's early sixties). they stuck it out for around 10-15 years, still thinking they were hip and cool and 'with the in-crowd'. real old-school rock dudes. in reality everybody was dead tired of them and made fun of them, but they still loved them because they were "our own".
i LOVE the guys in mudhoney. they changed rock history. mark and steve i consider friends. i miss talking to them.
i think they've been around now about as long as jr. cadillac was.
ATTN. people of Seattle:
If you have a copy of this poster, no matter what condition, PLEASE bring it to me if you get a chance at the POST NEO EXPLOSIONISM show this Thursday or Friday. I will buy or trade for it.
Youd be helping to make my personal portfolio more complete.
Mike, this was done in late Summer 1997 when I was living in a tiny studio apartment in downtown Seattle. It was produced at the Kinko's on Union street (is that right, Seattle people? I think thats the street).
It's funny: I sold this original artwork back when I lived in Seattle to a guy who collected punk artwork for 100.00...I needed rent $$$, or something. Anyways, I regretted it ever since...and I was very vocal on my website that I will gladly buy back any of the original art I sold off while I was in Seattle. Man, last year some guy sent me an email and was like, 'Ive got the grunge Beatles Mudhoney artwork...I bought it from Tim back in '98' Ill trade it to you for a couple of posters and an original sketch.'
So, now I have the original art to this, safely stored in a flat file. Isn't that a cool story? I thought so...
