Five days into Radvent and we go back to the start of Rock In Purgatory for a second look at hardcore band Bludgeoner.
The very first Rock In Purgatory comic of the series is still one of my favourites. It is actually based on an experience I had with my own band Circus Diabolica. They always say ‘write what you know’ so thats’ exaclty what I did with Bludgeoner.
When my band played at Water Rats in Kings Cross, London, I spent half the set swinging from the chandeliers (literally). The following day, the ceiling collapsed during a sound check, narrowly avoiding the band who’d just set up. It was a great tale to tell and was na obcious choice for how I should start this comic off.
