My old label Pentagon Black put out many exciting things, but these two  pamphlets are my favourite. Thankfully they're still available right here and cheap, cheap, cheap. 

One is titled is Black Dots, and it was written by noted Halifax writer-musician Chris Murdoch and drawn by yours truly. It contains 2800 words and five illustrations on where Black and punk first met in the UK, USA, and in Chris' own life. Mentioned in the pamphlet: the Bad Brains, Death, Toni Young, Minor Threat, Don Letts, Red C, Bubba Dupree, Void, Chuck Treece, Mike Cornelius, McRad, Ray Barbee, Poly Styrene, X-Ray Spex, Neville Staple, Lynval Golding, DIY spirit, noise, fury, skateboards, weirdness, etc. Originally published by Pentagon Black (RIP), and you can hear a stunning long-form interview between Chris and Nardwuar the Human Serviette about the project right here. 

The other titled 25 Queer Country Hot Hits. Sure, maybe you saw Orville Peck live and on-stage last year, and maybe you’ve seen a k.d. lang CD at Value Village, but where were you when Paul Clayton sang “Stay Away from the Girls” in 1958 or Lavender Country released “Crying These Cocksucking Tears” in ’73? Probably not even alive. Thankfully, queer historian, artist, and bon vivant Steacy Easton and I collaborated on this to get you fully educated on her 25 favourite queer country and western hits from the 1930s to present. It has 2300 words by Steacy, six illustrations by me, and with it you’ll never again wonder where the LGBTQIA is in C&W; it was there from day one. 

Printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink on a sheet of 8.5x11" Epson Bright White Pro Paper, folded into an eight-panel accordion-style pamphlet. Sold in an open edition.
