DADDY WITCH

Who’s the greatest band you’ve never heard of?

In the early 1980’s, the exhausted backwash of punk swept through the post-industrial wasteland towns of northern Britain. Young men with no future and no hope channelled their anger and their passion into music and art that compressed all their ideas and influences into a primal shriek of defiance.

One of those bands was Daddy Witch, and this is their story.

This is my first published novel. 140 pages. Pocket paperback, fully designed by yours truly.

Published by Exile In The Margins. £5 & shipping. Order your copy HERE.

BLACK WATER

You’ve heard of ‘nature writing’? This is ‘against nature writing’. Ten years plus in the making, this is a descent into the dark depths of psychosexual obsession and edgelands existentialism. Written by Martin Jones and fully illustrated and designed by me, each page festers and pulses with the madness that went into its making. It’s the first release by Exile In The Margins, and there will be more to follow.

Limited to 100 copies. A random selection of ten copies will come with a CD-R soundtrack and original art postcard by yours truly.

ALTAR

This book collects a series of paintings I made in 2010, inspired by the SunnO))) & Boris album Altar.
It’s one of the great art rock albums of all time, and I was inspired to make a painting for each of the songs.
Adding ‘automatic’ ink drawings and found photography, I self-published this book as a print-on-demand edition.
Above are a selection of images from the book, including the ‘sigil’ cover design.

THE BRIEF LIFE AND ETERNAL DEATH OF PLASTIC DRACULA

A prose ‘working’ in the Crowleyean sense, an evocation of the spirits – both benign and malevolent – that haunt the arcades and promenades of Britain’s seaside towns. Scrying in the Fun House mirror. Decoding angel language from bingo cards. Ectoplasmic candy floss snagged under the pier. Brylcreem, gasoline and Vaseline. Sticky fingers and bloody knuckles. Hot blood and cold chips. Wish you weren’t here.

24 pages. A5 chapbook. Full colour cover. Text by Martin Jones. Design by Rik Rawling.

WORZEL GUMMIDGE, MY FATHER: THE ART OF OLIVER TOMLINSON

The first publication devoted to the Midland’s most enigmatic artist. Born from bedsits, black metal and Special Brew, Tomlinson’s art follows a fine lineage of English absurdity: a drunken Hyde sketched rapidly by a fearful Jekyll.

A5 booklet. 16 pages. Full colour. 100 numbered copies. Edited by Martin Jones. Design by Rik Rawling.
