TOOTH is a 240 page book of black & white posters, pointless propaganda & deluded ramblings. It also includes a 60 minute CD of music.

About this project

     When I was 16 years old, I tore a weird looking poster off of a telephone pole near my house. It was crudely assembled, cheaply reproduced, and probably the greatest thing I'd ever seen.

     Later when I started to play music, the poster for the show became almost as important as the show itself. It was proof that something had happened. It was subversive propaganda. It was fun. It was addicting. And what did you need to do it? Scissors? Glue? A Xerox machine? An 8.5 x 11 piece of paper turned out to be a very powerful thing. It was like finding a machine gun in your sock drawer. The possibilities were endless.

     Although the tools I use have changed, I can probably trace all 240 pages of this book back to that one messed up, stapled up flyer. It's kind of awful, and kind of perfect, but it was definitely the spark.

     It's important that this book come with SOUND, since that's the reason most of this stuff was made. So inside the book will be a CD that includes nearly every band I've ever played with; Steel Pole Bath Tub, Milk Cult, Agent Nova, The Nein, and as an added bonus...the unreleased second Novex record!

The goal is to create a professionally printed and bound 240 page book that will come with a CD filled with music.

Noise helps make noise, helps make noise.
