Hell yes! A new Chop Tops cd coming soon…

The Chop Tops are one of my favorite psychobilly bands and if you get the chance to see them live, do not miss them! They are coming out with a new cd April 2, "Deadly Love." Never fear, I'm already touching bases to give you a preview a little closer to release date, but this is one of those bands you get giddy over when you hear there's a new record coming out, so I couldn't wait to put some buzz in your ear.

And I haven't even seen them since Brett (Three Bad Jacks
) took over on bass for The Chop Tops
. I'm hoping he still sets that thing on fire…literally.


PS. For those who don't know my photography work, psychobilly is near and dear to me. You can check out my portfolio here:



Ink and Iron 2010 – Make your reservations early

Ink and Iron is THE premier tattoo/psychobilly fest, hosted on the Queen Mary in Long Beach California. If you are even thinking of going, I recommend you reserve your room, because this sucker books up early. The Queen Mary is supposed to be haunted, and I can tell you it can be a bit spooky in the wee hours when there is no one around. And very difficult to find your way out. At least when you are hungover.

2010 dates are June 11-13.

Action Time Radio 25/Koffin Kats Interview

If you guys haven’t checked out Steven Blaqart’s “Blaqart Radio” and “Action Time! Radio,” you need to tune in post haste. He has some great interviews and playlists of songs you probably haven’t heard of but definitely should have.


This particular show features Vic Victor of the Koffin Kats, and they talk about yours truly a bit as well…

Action Time Radio 25/Koffin Kats Interview.

This Thanksgiving I gave thanks by airing an interview I did with Vic Victor of The Koffin Kats!! We talk about everything from their brand new album Forever For Hire
to naked photo shoots with Diana Price to self afflicted entertainment.. this show also includes archived clips from The Quakes and The Limit Club!!!

Photo of the Day – The Koffin Kats


Yeah, yeah, I know. I’m always going on about the Koffin Kats.

I swore to myself I wasn’t going to put up any more photos of them
for awhile, and especially of Vic Victor, but I mean, hey…look at the
pic, you know? This was the last stop of the Nekromantix, Koffin Kats,
Chop Tops show, and I would like to say Vic outdid himself, but
honestly, this is pretty much…par.

Now, a lot of people ask, is that blood real? First, let me tell you
not to ask Vic that. That drives him nuts, because yes, it is real. In
fact, Vic will tell you point blank the only blood you’ll ever see on
their stage is real — they don’t go for that fake blood shit so common
in psychobilly. How does he do this? Well, the boy has been smashing
beer cans into his head and has all these cuts in his scalp. So all he
has to do anymore is headbutt something or smack himself in the head,
and they open right up. FYI — for those who don’t know this, scalp
wounds bleed VERY dramatically, and look far worse than they are.  He’s
gonna be okay. Really.

Well, the cuts anyway. As for what is actually going through his head, rather than bleeding out of it — the jury’s still out.
