My good friends, The Naked Heroes, have just released their new video for their song "Sheila," made under the strong-arm direction of the legendary Ken "Lemon Cookie" Shadford. My beard and I make a cameo appearance during the party. If you dig the song you should absolutely download The Naked Heroes album, 99 Diamond, which is available for free on their label's website Powerload Records. It's a rip-roaring record of full-throated, redblooded rock 'n' roll.
Over on his blog, Michel Fiffe wrote a bit about some comics he recently purchased, which included Night Business, Issue 3. You can read what he had to say here. Below is an brief exerpt:
Equal parts old school Paul Gulacy and Faust’s Tim Vigil, Marra’s making his comics on his own terms with a dedication that’s pretty admirable. Thank God he’s not waiting around, hoping for a publisher’s permission to start his comic. And thank God he’s using newsprint.Thanks, Michel.
