new TXHC band featuring members of older TXHC bands playing even older sounding music. somewhere in the vein of early DC hardcore mixed with negative approach, while still maintaining an independent voice and keeping current. somehow more punk even if that makes sense at all. engineered by william hesser, who over a handful of recent years has become the houston recording go-to guy, BLACK COFFEE features members that have served time in such previous acts as the burden, your mistake, and street dogs, to name a few. this cassette version is released by SISSTER SSOUND (SS007) in a limited edition of 80 to go along with the DEATH EXCLAMATIONS release of the 7" vinyl. cassette features the same 6 songs as the vinyl (five originals and a cover), but also includes a bonus live song not featured on the 7". all art and layout by GIVE UP. available NOW in the sissterssound WEBSTORE.
when mike finger asked me to do a poster for GROWN FEST 6 it wasn't a thing i could really turn down. already had the skeleton together from a previous poster that didn't pan out. so i was able to re-scan my original elements and knock this one out pretty quick. leave anything you can't see broken at home for this one, check your glasses at the door.

did the artwork for this collaborative deck for ROT IN HELL by IRON COLUMN SKATES. strictly limited to only 100, each deck comes with a 3" cd of an unreleased RIH song in a wax-sealed cover, as well as a canvas GIVE UP patch. just got mine in the mail yesterday, not sure about availability otherwise. heard these were going quick.
