From Drippy Bone HDQTRS:
"i’ll let Shalo explain this one to ya”
“this new release sees the artists respectively knashing their teeth at
their obsessions and desires, tearing inward into depictions of fear,
isolation and charming forms of nihilism, revealing a common theme of
self-defeating anxiety that propels them into “the spiritual pursuits of
the street”. the images collide and play off each other, dancing in
full cover spreads and stark black and white pages like twisted visions
shared by dreamers on different planes of existence.
DEATH TRIP is ultimately a book for those not content with conventional imagemaking but at ease in shredding beyond its basic fabric into the emotional sparseness and infinite lushness we bear as human beings ruled by strange and powerful desires.”
