Today we launched a brand new site for Chicago’s punk band JuiceheaD: http://juiceheadmusic.com
Their new album, “How To Sail A Sinking Ship” comes out October 4th from Misfits Records – and I also did the layout for the CD package and iTunes booklet.
Be sure to check out this up and coming band – on tour now with the Misfits.
Just launched a new site for The Old Clam House in San Francisco @ http://theoldclamhousesf.com
Atomic Pop Monkey is happy to announce our brand new site for Peter Bradley Adams ( http://peterbradleyadams.com ) in preparation of his new album “Between Us”. “Between Us” will be available in stores & online June 14th, 2011.
Once again working with Los Angeles based design firm Riot Structure (who provided the graphic and web design), we coded out and built the site for this documentary about drummer Patty Schemel. “Hit So Hard” Debuts at this year’s SXSW – check the site for additional screening dates and more information.
Hit So Hard s a pull-no-punches portrait of the hell-and-back life of Patty Schemel, the hard-hitting drummer of Courtney Love’s seminal rock band ‘Hole’ during its peak years. As a young girl who always knew she was ‘different’ from the other kids in her farm town home outside of Seattle, Patty never dreamed she would one day have her picture on the cover of ‘Rolling Stone.’ But she also never fathomed that she could lose it all. A true survivor of what we now know was the disaffected ‘slacker’ generation, Patty found herself, like her friend Kurt Cobain, embraced by the dark side. An unprecedented and unflinching inside look at one of the 90s most crucial and controversial groups.
One of this year’s most enjoyable projects was designing the landing page and promotional materials for the new video and song “Where’s the Cap’n?” by Osaka Popstar. The video features rare footage from vintage Cap’n Crunch TV commercials from the 60′s and 70′s that should delight all who grew up seeing them air on Saturday mornings, their own bowl of crunchy goodness in hand. It was great fun incorporating classic Cap’n Crunch and Osaka Popstar imagery into something new.
The song is available as a free download, watch the video and get more details here: http://osakapopstar.com/crunch
I hope you enjoy watching and listening to it as much as we did working on the webpage!

As the band embarks on a US Tour this September, relocating to New York City and prepares to release their new single and video for the song “Ugly Thing”, we took the opportunity to revamp the band’s website. Today we relaunched http://persephonesbees.com making the site more web 2.0 friendly and lay the groundwork for further updating. In conjunction, we also relaunched Persephone’s Bees’ MySpace page with the new 2.0 profile they offer.
Stay tuned, there’s much more coming soon.
I had a wonderful time working with Edith on her new site. She created all of the collage pieces herself, which gives the site a very personal and charming quality. Edith is an award winning children’s book author, whose work includes “East”, “Mrs. Spitzer’s Garden”, “Hero’s Song” and “Fire Arrow”. Visit her at http://edithpattou.com
