Banana Nutrament

Marlin, Grog, Madman & The Bomb

We haven't exactly been a source of useful information on Metal, save for some chat room hijinks and a few notes on the flourishing practice of reselling private metal. As crazed as that Overlorde insert was, something even better has emerged. eBayer iamthewitch has set us up with a detailed back cover image from one of their current auctions. Bid early! Bid often!

Here's Wizard's Marlin, Grog, Madman & The Bomb, I dig that each one has their own personal flair:

Lastly, in regards to art shows, one thing I have to put up before it closes is a reminder to check out Art of Music, A Show of Handmade Record Covers at Secret Project Robot.

Dan Selzer of Acute Records has a great writeup and even contributed a few things to the exhibition, read about it here. Thought the show closed Sunday, looks like it's ending today, as in three, four hours from now. I need to get on the ball with these things.
