Arts Bombast: David Markey

David Markey is basically a punk-rock Renaissance Man. He is a member of one of my all-time-favorite bands Sin 34, director of the ridiculously excellent Desperate Teenage Lovedolls, and documentary photographer of the early LA / SST Recs scene.

The book Party With Me Punker, a collection of Markey’s photographs from the early ’80s LA punk scene, was SUPPOSED to be released this year, but apparently Ecstatic Peace went under and I haven’t heard anything since. Good thing I didn’t pre-order it… OH WAIT I FUCKING DID. Bastards. I hope the project stays alive, because I always need more Mike Watt, Raymond Pettibon, and Black Flag on my coffee table.
