Failed Album's for John Jughead Pierson designed by Paul Russel

My Friend Paul Russel, is a powerhouse of strange ideas and artistic abilities.  He was the artist who created the Weasel logo that is tattooed over thousands of bodies throughout the world.  He created original art for Halo and other X Box games.  He created my favorite Even In Blackouts logo.  But this latest endeavor of his to turn my occasional selfie photos on facebook into failed albums from the 70's and 80's needs a place in satirical history.

"1983-Miss Junkhead tries his hand at minimalist, angular post-punk. So minimal in fact that no instruments or vocals are used. All sold copies were returned as defective by Billy Gobstein, one was the initial purchase and the second the replacement. "No one gets me" - John Jughead Pierson "

Grins & Saltwater

This was an old play I did for Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind.  During this time I began playing alot with a format where a viewer would be confused as to whether I was writing something funny or something serious.  Not a new concept, but one that I hold dearly to my art making.  This was one of the first successful ones from around 1987-88.  Here is a demo version of it.  I was planning on making a more highly produced one eventually.  We'll see.
