A couple of quick Skull Ring notes.
First, Tony Creed has a new site that looks pretty slick. Go visit him at superskull.com!
I love Tony’s stuff; my first skull ring was my ELVIS LIVES ‘riffman’. Tony’s still the original badass in the industry and his stuff is stil as cave-man-biker as ever.
Second,another favorite designer, MT Maloney, has just released this brillian, HUGE ring: the JUPITER:
MT’s awesome, and this is really a statement piece. He won’t even be offering this in small sizes; you need Big Old Man Hands to wear it.
I want it.
I just wanted to push a particular favorite artist of mine, Adam Franklin.
Adam was the lead guy in one of my favorite bands of all time, Swervedriver.
He’s been a significant solo artists for some while, and has released a number of excellent solo albums, both as Adam Franklin as as Toshack Highway
He’s just released a wonderful new album, Black Horses (buy on iTunes or Amazon).
This is a bit of a departure for Adam; where Swervedriver were hard, loud, driving music with a sometimes shoegaze feel, his solo work has been more varied; sometimes more basic rock, sometimes shoegaze drone. But this album has a softer feel, and an oddly 60’s vibe. Often acoustic, It almost seem like a more intimate, personal version of Adam Franklin.
It tool a little time for me to get to know this one; it’s growing on me with each spin.
Give it a try.
