Martyrs and Motherfuckers, my old 'zine

17 years ago (the year 2000!) I did a 'zine called Martyrs and Motherfuckers. My friend Mark was kind enough to scan in the first issue for me, as I never kept one. I did three 'zines total; Blood on the Floor, Prick and the one you'll find below for your reading pleasure (I was also a regular contributor to Mark's 'zine Hello My Name Is) I cringe at some of it, but overall, I think it was a good 'zine.

Dead Hearts Pictorial History

I enjoyed doing the No Reason Pictorial History, so I thought I'd do one for Dead Hearts. A lot of swirling emotions are brought up when I think of this band, and they are mostly positive, but to tackle an actual blog post writing out the history would be just TOO much I think. I don't mean, like too much for me, but too much minute detail for anyone to read. I may take it on someday, but for now, enjoy this little trip down memory lane for the most popular band I was ever in.
