I have been excited about the coming of this sticker for a few months
now, ever since it was confirmed it was gonna happen....and THEN I got
the art work in the mail.. and I was even more excited.. and NOW I am
just exstatic to share with you... THIS MONTH.. the design we have
come from Orange County, CA Punk Rock Royalty.. .the one and only RIKK
Rikk and I became friends in the mid 1990's, but I have been listening
to him play guitar since I first learned was punk rock WAS in the early
1980's. He was the founding guitarist of The Adolescents, D.I., Christian
Death, Poop, and others. In MY opinion, he has contributed more to
the "Orange County Punk Rock Sound" than probably any other
individual person...his tone and his style of playing have been copied
by literally hundreds of bands. I have been blessed to include Rikk as
a member of my project, Instagon, He has played with Instagon a number
of times (as recently as last Winter!) and we wrote a surf song together
called "Thruster" that appeared on The Hostage Situation
CD Compilation in 2000 on Hostage
Records. These days heis touring with "The Rikk Agnew
Band" playing shows with the love of his life, Gitane Demone,
and has a new album coming out on Frontier
Records (the label that released the first Adolescents
album) in the Fall called "Learn". .
This Sticker design was a total surprise! I noticed in the early part
of this year that Rikk was posting photos of some of his art to his Facehook
account ....and so really on a whim I asked if he wanted to do a sticker
design for our club, and to my surprise he said YES!! .. and then I got
the design in the mail , titled "Bugaboo Boo"
..and it RULES!! I hope you think so too! I really have no idea what else
Rikk is doing with his art .. not sure if he has any shows, or plans for
other visual releases.. but if you like this and wanna ask him about doing
something for you.. or when you can see more of his art.. then contact
him via his FB page and ask.. but be patient.. he is on tour a lot.. and
may not be able to get to you right away. www.facebook.com/rikk.agnew.5
