KFJC "Evil" Hoodie Sweatshirt for 2006

The hoodie returns to the KFJC fundraiser. This time around, designed by Plastic Crimewave. who was born one Steven H Krakow and was quickly drawn to colorful comic books, the Byrds and Mad Magazine, and it's basically been a straight line ever since, delving deep into 60's psychedelia, cartooning and all things vibrationally bizarre. He is the brainchild of the Galactic Zoo Dossier, a hand-drawn psychedelic culture mag, published by Drag City, as well as the artist behind numerous album covers (for Drag City, Locust, Earworm, Birdman, etc), posters (from Incredible string Band to Josephine Foster), illustrations, etc. He freelances writing and drawing for Arthur, Stop Smiling, Roctober, etc.

He also heads up the Plastic Crimewave Sound, a Chicago based spaced-out acid punk ensemble inspired by the underground sounds of Velvet Underground, Krautrock and freeform musics. So far there's been 2 LPs on Eclipse (the second a double gatefold oohh), 2 singles (one a split w/MN legend Michael Yonkers) and a split w/Oneida on Jagjaguwar. The group has toured w/Acid Mothers Temple, Oneida, The Ponys, Comets On Fire, etc and has played festivals in LA, Montreal, etc.

Crimewave also booked three "Million Tongues" festivals at the Empty Bottle of undergound acts from around the globe; runs the Galactic Zoo Disk vinyl-only label; does the "Secret History of Chicago Music" info-strip for the Chicago Reader; toured and collaborates w/many from Japan; he's been exhibited internationally; and has been profiled in LA Weekly, Mojo, Foxy Digitalis, Magnet, SPIN, Blackbook, Fader, Stop Smiling, Chicago Reader and a buncha zines....
