ARTWORK WEDNESDAY: Vintage Pulp Exploitation Magazines

image  image

I’ve been working a lot with pulp art for some of the album covers I’ve been designing recently and in the process, I’ve run across a lot of amazing pulp are covers from the 1930s to 1950s.  Below, you can check out a small collection of my favorite covers.  My VERY favorites so far would probably be Satan Was A Lesbian and Marijuana Girl.  I just love the subtext on the latter.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Boom Boom

What 3 words would you use to describe your sound?

Infectious. Energetic. Dance!

Where are you currently based out of?

Washington, DC & Miami Beach, Florida

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever experienced playing a live show?

I played a show once in Miami where I was opening for two very well known rappers and during the show the two rappers fans got into a fight, which lead to gunshots.  The promoter asked me to go on stage and keep the show’s energy going and I did.  Later, I thought about the situation and realized how unsafe it was!

If you could go on a dream world tour with any 3 artists, who would you take with you?

I would take my producer GUGG, Ricky Martin, and Jennifer Lopez.  Myself, Ricky and Jennifer all have music that would blend together, intertwine and I think it would be a great show!  With our energy it would be absolutely incredible!

Any big projects in the works this year?

Currently, we are back in the studio and have just released two new singles on iTunes - “Do Something About It” and “Crush”.  I am looking forward to putting together another awesome album with lots of unexpected new ideas way out of the box. This is going to be a big year with lots of exciting new music from Boom Boom and G.U.G.G.  Buckle up it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!  Hurricane Boom Boom is on it’s way!

CINEMA SUNDAY: The Punk Singer

I recently watched this incredible documentary about Kathleen Hanna - the lead singer of Bikini Kill & Le Tigre.  I’ve been a big fan of both bands since my teens, so it was so great to get a look into the life of the leader of the riot grrrl movement. It’s a super stylish and culturally relevant documentary, and I highly suggest you see it!

The Punk Singer is available now for viewing on Netflix.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Bianca Hendy

What 3 words would you use to describe your sound?

Acoustic. Raw. Emotion.

Where are you currently based out of?

Mount Gambier, South Australia

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever experienced playing a live show?

I can’t say I’ve encountered anything too crazy, but one guy got naked once, haha!

If you could go on a dream world tour with any 3 artists, who would you take with you?

It would definitely be a variety show.  My dream tour would be with Nirvana, Blink 182 and The Pretty Reckless!

Any big projects in the works this year?

This year is getting pretty crazy for me.  I released a new song and will soon be bringing out my EP titled “Cheap Rumours”.
