QUESTION: what are the AvoGoth kids listening to today?

ANSWER: Moondog, Viking of Sixth Avenue.

Moondog was New York's equivalent to our very own Pirate Ricky. He left his home to live on the streets of NYC for thirty years, blind as a bat. He dressed like a bum version of the Norse god Thor and wrote beautiful symphonies until his day of death in 1988. What a sad day for the New York street scene. And then I was born!

Listen to this!



Here's me eating popcorn like the Norse god Thor!

It's a Dry Heat

Although we're scattered up and down the Killifornia coast, now, pretty much all the Avocado Gothers have lived in Arizona. A couple of us spent the the entirety of our childhoods in the desert .

In the spirit of that mystical, arid corner of our great USofA I accepted this gift from Megan of stick n' pokery...

Kissed by a Goth



Big day for Avo Goth. We have this one patternmaker, literally, by the balls.

Lots of pretty fabric coming in this week. I would show you swatches but there's too many biters (urban outfitters) trying co-opt our magic.

Also, on the phone with the dude, himself...Zackey Big Rankin', talkin big big tings.

AVOCADO GOTH, ALL UP ON YOUR BABY MOMMY'S BODY (If your baby's mother was a really well-dressed young woman with Bauhaus on her iPod)

Avo Gothey + Mustache Mondays= Love 4-Eva

I've always asserted that Nacho Nava is the king of Downtown LA. If there was a contest electing a prom king for Downtown, I would throw my vote at Nacho.

The other fine-ass young cannibal immortalized in this photo is Quinten. Quinten is a friend to Avocado Gothic, nay, Quinten is fucking Avocado Goth!

They were both rocking the label last week at Mustache Mondays; Nacho's seminal,ridic poly-disco-freak weekly party. If you live within Los Scandalous city limits then you know what's up...or maybe you don't and you're a square motherfucker and you're probably not reading Avocado Goth.

I just realized that it's monday, AND, Megan is working the door tonight, so Mustache and Avocado Goth really are family! *HEARTS*

JUST FUN, Brian Skiff for Avocado Goth


This is the newest Avocado Goth t-shirt. Don't worry, its not what you think it is. What you're viewing is actually an image of a gentleman dressed in a Mickey Mouse Suit catching brain from a prostitute dressed in a Minnie Mouse suit..so, calm down, it's JUST FUN

Oh, by the by, this sexually stimulating imagery was drawn by Echo park's preeminent comic book crust punk, Brian Skiff. Skiff likes cartoons, drawing cartoons in compromising positions and giving people really fucking good stick and poke tattoos. He also likes Danzig, a lot. Like, a lot, a lot. He's kind of gay for Danzig, so much so that I bet the video below will make him cry.

BZZZZZZ


In order to be taken seriously in the business world, we decided it would be best to cut our hair. So, Richard buzzed a chunk of my head. Look!

the fucking cunts treat us like pricks

We at Avocado Goth really love Peace Punk. It's like our favorite thing. We're gonna start a Peace Punk night at Drai's on roof of the W in Hollywood. The actor from "Entourage" is supposed to show up...it's gonna be super-fun, you should come.


We should probably include Zounds and some other American bands like A.P.P.L.E and Nausea but these will do for now...

We're just a GRATEFUL THREAT




We realize this imagery, while benign to 99% of the populous, may be offensive to certain hardliners as well as members of the granola elite. our statement to those people is as follows: Not doing drugs and shit like that is cool, just don't get all up in my dentistry about it! And to the throngs of hackey-sackers looking for a pick-up game; NO, we don't want to play!
