Performing “My Dear Self” by my self in Bristol on a boat sometime in 2004. This was before the full live show was developed, but I was already experimenting with using Zach’s artwork along with the performances.
I’ve finally gotten around to making 13 prints available from my ongoing series, Disappointed People Holding on to Guardrails. They are archival-quality matte finish prints, 24” x 36” (the same size as the original paintings), and will be hand-signed and titled by yours truly.
This morning, for some reason, I stumbled onto Zach’samazing batch of letters which he wrote to Vilhelmina during The Cinematic Underground tour. These letters were written in place of a band blog, but in them, you can trace a lot of what happened during that time (band fights, crappy shows, personal introductions, our vegetable-oil bus, and Zach’s ramblings, which are always a good time).
I had forgotten about this documentation of Marke playing Karma Police, almost 5 years before Jared’s wonderful account of a similar event. Sometimes lightning does strike twice.
