ZAK SALLY PEEL SESSION UNWOUND DRAWING OUTTAKES/ CHEAP and half to the ACLU
dear unwound fans: this is zak sally. i was in bands, i make comics, etc etc etc. i did the drawings for the Peel Session included in Numero’s final box set, EMPIRE. when Justin (or Sara, i can’t remember) emailed and said “you wanna do the art?!?!” i thought not only HELL YES (because i love those guys, and that band) but also: "THIS IS GOING TO BE A CAKE WALK, i could draw Unwound in my sleep!!”
boy was i wrong. i did, like, SEVENTY drawings of those 3, trying to get it right. it drove me fucking nuts and i cursed their names. yes, it’s embarrassing. but let my embarrassment be your ARTISTIC WINDFALL.
a lot of these drawings are kind of great, and i’d rather people HAVE them than they sit in my flat file gathering dust. so what i did is made sets of 4 drawings each (one each of Sara and Vern, and 2 of Justin. not because i love him more, but because i could NOT get his damn face right, so i’ve got twice as many of him...). some of them are real loose and gestural, some are detailed illustrations, some are ink, some are pencil, some are white on black paper, it’s all over the map. i tried to give a nice mix in each set. but they are mostly pretty big and there is some damn nice stuff in there if i do say so myself. there’s at least one in each set that’d be a $100 drawing if i was asking freelance prices. so here’s what we’re doing (with Unwound’s blessing, naturally):
THERE ARE 11 SETS IN ALL.
I’m asking $45 for each set (of 4 drawings), + $7 postage, shipped to you in a tube (if you're overseas, let me know, might be a bit more), so
$52 in all
HALF OF THE PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO THE ACLU
because we are staring at a daily nightmare that smells a hell of a lot like fascism, and it is far, far beyond fucked.
FIRST ELEVEN PEOPLE TO SEND ME $52 GET THEM. send to
and, should you for any reason want to pay more, the extra goes straight to ACLU, not split with me. make sense?
stay well everyone, and be safe out there. its real dark.
Get your copy of the fourth box in our reissue series with Numero...
It looks fantastic! (it sounds pretty good too)...
Pre-order the last set in our re-issue series. It will include the last two Unwound records (Challenge for a Civilized Society and Leave Turn Inside You) plus a bunch more stuff. It is called "Empire."
I just read this important interview from one of my favorite guitar players, David Pajo. I highly recommend reading it, especially if you are going through a rough spell.
No one seems to know that we released one of our best shirts last year. Gee, guess that's our fault! It's the The Future of What design made from the original silkscreen transparency, thus the "worn in" appearance. Get yours today!
Just a head's up on the site. We aren't being very active with the archive now. There's still stuff to add but currently we are busy with our lives. No need to live in the past! Check the "Now" page for links to what we are doing these days, including new recordings and performances from our current projects. We still post on social media so you can follow us there too.
Thanks again for checking out the site.
We found an original t-shirt design template from the Fake Train era for you! This new/old design celebrates the Rat Conspiracy set recently released on Numero.
The Survival Knife record is on the way. It's called Loose Power. It will be released April 29 on Glacial Pace Recordings from Portland. They will be playing a handful of shows in May. More news to follow! (Get used to it....)
Here is a song preview:
OK, we now have the KID IS GONE t-shirt up for sale!! This is from an original design we used on tour from the early 90's. It is actually a bit different than the bootlegs other people have been ripping off for years. So there!
