Rat Fink Roundup

This Rat Fink Roundup is not to be confused with the up coming Rat Fink Reunion in Manti, Utah. This "happening" is at Outlaw Accessories in Keller, TX..just on "that side of the tracks". The whole shooting match is run by Frank.

Two paint slingers hosted this pinstriping party, and laid lines & Finks of all kinds on bikes and cars this weekend.
The two no accounts responsible for this outburst of One Shot are Ken "Mitch" Mitchroney...

..and Greg "Coop" Cooper.

..both are certified paint draggers and carry the Ed "Big Daddy" Roth seal of approval.
These guys laid lines, Finks, and all sorts of stripes down on all kinds of bikes and cars. While Coop worked on one end of a Harley...

...Ken worked on the other end...

..and sometimes they crossed lines....

An Emperial got some lines on it's trunk...

..and this Buell got it's fender tender...

Coop brought his bike for Frank to look at...

(..the bright green one..)

..Coop's kustom Fink bike up close...

..which he trailered with his van...

Coop also brought some of his latest creations...the Friki Tiki striper brushes.. (which I can only assume were produced by Mack)

Ken designed the Outlaw club t-shirt, which was ready just in time for this event. Ken's original ink job...

..which I took to my job, did the seperations in a day, and then in turn was screened and inked by my buddy Ed...

...all in one day!

Despite the rain, and the slow drying One Shot...

..everybody had a good time...

...even "Outlaw".

Rat Fink Reunion 2007

Coming up this month...May 31-June 1, & 2 to be exact, will be the 5th annual Rat Fink Reunion on the Roth estate in Manti, Utah. It will be a three day event with custom hot rods, bikes, a parade, auctions, pinstriping, t-shirt painting, music, freshRat Fink merchandise and food. You MUST go and bring ANYTHING to be pinstriped by one of the many old pros that attend. Great people and atmosphere make it worth the trip, but you'll see Ed Roth's personal Rat Fink artifacts and craftsmanship up close.
I was fortunate enough to be asked to do this year's t-shirt design and poster art. I designed it to look like an old Revell model box, complete with Ed's traditional appearance.

(Click to large'em up!)
This is the t-shirt design. Basic colors with some half tones to mix secondary colors.

Below is the poster art, done with full colors, etc. You can download the actual file here, and print it out on 11 x 17 paper..or download it and reduce it and THEN print it out.

As a side bar, go to Jeff Gaither's site for more amazing Rat Fink art!!

Wild Arch Hall, Jr.

Thanks to the blog, Detective Mitchell's Junk Drawer, I can sleep at night knowing that someone compiled all of Arch Hall, Jr.'s music onto one disc.
I need to know that somewhere "Dune Buggy" has been saved in digital audio...and it's important that the title track from "Eegah!" be heard by everyone. (It's so punk before punk, it's scary.)
It's imperative that "Twist Fever" be heard so clear, that it seems it was recorded yesterday!! It contains clips and trailers from The Choppers, Eegah!, Wild Guitar...
and the Sadist!
Includes live tracks as well of Hall with the Archers.
Hit the link and download the zip file before someone rips it out 'a there!

Listen to an interview with Arch Hall, Jr. on WFMU, which aired on my birthday!!

The latest news in the world of the Subgenius is that, Stang finally released some of the old Sub G films/videos on DVD, including the MTV One Minute Movie. This also contains the 40 minute "making of" which has shots of me here and there doing the physical effects.
Stang blathers about it on his Blog.


Includes the 1984 NIGHT OF SLACK Devival, The Making of SUBGENIUS/MTV, "Bob's" Lunch Hour, 1990 SubGenius Art Gallery Show, and more

NIGHT OF SLACK -- The legendary 1984 San Francisco revival at which "Bob" first 'died.' Pope David N. Meyer, The Band That Dare Not Speak Its Name, Dr. Hal, Rev. Ivan Stang, Pope Sternodox, Doktors 4 "Bob".

You'll "LAK TO DIE" when you see Dobbs in a flying saucer, blowing up the MTV building (a pyramid with an eye on it); the stop-motion death in flames of Barbie and Ken; live recreations of two SubGenius book covers; and Dobbs being worshiped by slinky devil-girls in Hell. During the sometimes surreal shooting, we also shot this 40-minute look behind the scenes.

The SUBGENIUS ART SHOW AT PSYCHEDELIC SOLUTION GALLERY, NYC (1990) -- now fully subtitled so you can tell who the "famous" celebrities are!

"Bob's" LUNCH HOUR starring Dr. Philo Drummond as "Bob" (Started in1977 - finished in 2007)

Dr. Hal interviewed re: "Bob's" Shooting, 1984

UNSEEN INTERVIEWS: LIES (Paul Mavrides), Pope Sternodox and Puzzling Evidence - uncut footage from 1981 World SubCon videos, shot for Showtime "What's Up America"; LIES & Puzzling Evidence - 2-minute "interview" from 1985; Dr. G. Gordon Gordon Goes Fishing with Snavely and Philo - 1991"

This DVD came mysteriously to an old address of mine in a plain manila envelope. No note...nothing.

Also..The sin-sational tome, Revelation X, is being re-released unto the world once again. I mention this 'cause I got some illustrations in there.

Supposedly I've a drawing or two in the new SubG rag, the BOBLIGRAPHON.
I'm not sure, I got a check for something I drew in a book. Somebody find a copy and let me know.
