Last week Kevin Warwick wrote about the Seen and Heard Music Video Showcase that’s coming up September 16 at Chicago Filmmakers. What he didn’t mention—because it’s a late addition to the program—is the animated video for Tijuana Hercules‘s “Quicksand Passin’ Through,” drawn by front man John Forbes.
One of my old bosses at the Reader once told me a story about the time she first met Forbes. It was at the headquarters of Skin Graft Records, and if I recall correctly he’d only known her for an hour or so when he presented her with a drawing he’d made—a cartoon portrait of her with a Christmas tree up her ass. I can’t remember if Hitler was in the drawing somehow too, but at the time, he tended to be.
