Acknowledgement by NK Perkins, a wonderful and honest short memoir / reflection about taking drugs, having panic attacks, being naked with your friends, and the other scary, beautiful, and weird things we’ve done. This is the first title I’ve published as Pest House Publishing and I couldn’t be happier about it.

20 pages of content, two color process printed cover, hand-stamped cover and back cover, first edition of 100.

Feel free to contact me for a copy but you should at least read the pdf

Looks cool.

Awesome flier designed by Brendan Wells for a NERV show in Minneapolis. 

A flier I designed for an upcoming punk show in Iowa City.  Omens from Des Moines, Pisswalker from Omaha, Dead In Bed, and Haunter, both from Iowa City are playing at the Black Magic Rectory.  I listened to A//Political and only A//Political while I designed this.

These photos are the choice cuts of some photos I found in a dumpster in Iowa City last year.  These pictures show a magic time in Bruce and Jennifer’s lives (names taken from the back of the photos), two young deadheads in love following the Grateful Dead around before settling down to raise a family.  I found these photographs tucked in with a bunch of papers detailing life insurance, but lets not paint a morbid picture here. 

Of interest is the last photo from a Grateful Dead concert.  Date and location unknown.

The design of the first NERV demo never really sat well with me when juxtaposed with the designs of the second and third demos.  I did this redesign of the art for the first demo recently simply to calm my nerves and to make the three tapes look more uniform on my tape shelf.  Recorded by Ryan ‘C’ Meier in either very late 2010 or very early 2011, most of these songs were written when NERV was simply a fun little side project to other bands we played in at the time.  Three of these songs made their way onto our 7” and second demo (‘Third Children’ becoming ‘Definition’ and ‘Absolute Terror’ becoming ‘Rat’s Nest’), but for most the most part, these songs don’t get played live anymore and they’ll most likely remain only on this tape.  Very few copies exist, maybe 10 or less, and I doubt anymore will ever be made.  I don’t think this is a bad demo by any means, I actually think it’s pretty fucking great, it was just recorded at a weird time in the band’s life. 
This is a weird relic in the band’s history (maybe not as weird as the live lathe…) but one that was bugging me and needed a redesign.  The end.

Flier I designed for a recent show in Iowa City with NERV, Bad Noids, and Drug Problem, the latter two being from Cleveland.  At the Breast Imagining Center.
