Artist Collaboration – Pretty Dreams of Mud Puddles

So it’s no secret that we’re a bunch of frustrated artists here at Altfanclub. So it was a delight and a privilege to work with one of our alumni, Jeremy Serwer, on a poetry / video piece before we left Seattle. Enjoy (and feel free to share if it’s your thing!) Advertisements

Album Review – V, The Horrors

Never Let Me Down Again The Horrors V (2017) Wolf Tone/Caroline International U.K. Indie rapscallions, The Horrors,  return with their 5th studio album. From the start, an Industrial veneer encapsulates the entire LP. The similarities to Depeche Mode aren’t just tired peddled cliches, it’s actually a great mapping tool to see just where this band…

An Atheist’s Prayer on Election Night – a poem

(Featured photo by Nathania Tenwolde – with additional vote labour overlay) Sooooo…. I suppose it’s been a little while Since we – ummmmm Talked.   I’ve said some things You’ve said some things. Well – actually you didn’t say anything Because it turns out you don’t exist…                …

Coming Soon – Downstream Fest

We’ve been away for soooooo looooong! No time to go into why right now. Just assume it’s because we’re off trying to make the world a better place. In the meantime we’re sponsoring our first festival. King Seattle himself TBasa (aka Guru Terrence from The Workplace Bully – best cult leader ever!) requested we get our…

Tobias the Owl: Science is Cool

I love Tobias the Owl. I really really REALLY love the music that pours forth from this astounding collective. I edited this video with a faraway grin plastered across my face and felt a bit sad when it was done. Do you think I’d do well if I started a crowdfunding campaign so I could…

Tobias the Owl Achieves Immortality

  It’s always a sign of a good Saturday afternoon when you get to witness great music and weird, wonderful conversation about how you basically become someone new on a molecular level once every seven years, with people who aren’t even high. Tobias the Owl had a Shakespearian introduction to me. I would hear the name…

Liquorish – a new track feat. BA the Scribe

It’s always good to have tunes to rock out to while the shit tsunami rains down, and I really heart BA the Scribe, who’s a fabulous musician and all round good egg. Enjoy! Share, love the little emoji things he placed by the contact info below like a proper young person. I’m impressed! LIQUORISH (13th…

Star Anna pt. 2: Big Bad Wolf

I woke up this morning with an incredible lack of enthusiasm, which I brought back to life miraculously by editing this video of Star Anna and her band playing her amazing song Big Bad Wolf. She truly has one of my favorite voices in the world! It was such a pleasure to edit. I then…

Star Anna

This was the very first blog post I ever recorded based on a dream. Somehow Star Anna managed to sneak her way into my subconscious, possibly through her hauntingly beautiful songs, and the fact that I’m in Seattle and in Seattle you hear about Star Anna a lot/ You hear about her around here, most…

Who did our faves love in 2016?

Despite the shit tsunami feeling of 2016 I hope everyone can admit that the music was really fucking good. What were the best tunes? I have no bloody idea – so I asked some of our favorite WA-based musicians so I don’t have to think for myself! Hoorah! Peyton and Kelli from Skating Polly Tacoma-based…

Watch The Workplace Bully

Here it is at last, The Workplace Bully. Based on a short story I wrote several years ago, adapted via my weird obsession with the person who survived the Heaven’s Gate cult, with Christmas and some robots thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!

The Workplace Bully

Proving that the spirit of Christmas, indie cinema and weird Seattle is alive and well. December 15th sees the premier The Workplace Bully. Seattle-based film maker…
