Zine Round Up - Patrick Griffin

One of NYs finest recently sent me some fucking sick (in all senses) zines...

'Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day'
We all have shit days...and this is the xeroxed manifestation of all those days you've been caught drunk at work by your boss, cut yourself by accident with a knife, missed that last bus home or had a final argument with your girl...you might not like bad days, but you will like this zine.
Contrasting between a childhood recollection (dont know if its autobiographical) of a shitty day with Patricks trademark street/gutter level photography (with subjects from the deathly steps at the end of the Exorcist to a rainy day forecast), exposing all of lifes faces - even if its one of sadness or melancholy...another great Patrick Griffin zine.

SKULD no.1
This is a group zine featuring Charlie Wilhoit, Patrick Griffin, Will Boone & Mark Flood, and is pure deathly grainy xeroxed grime...this is the real deal fucking nasty stuff and its fucking so rad. I LOVE the dead bodies with contrasting thought bubbles...i love this zine, so good.
