I’ve written in other forums about the record label I ran – Womb Records – for a few months. I only put out one and ½ singles – this MONOSHOCK 45 plus a joint-label release I did with Anthony Bedard’s PAST IT Records of the first DEMOLITION DOLL RODS single. I decided to pimp the first one in the fanzine I was writing at the time (1994), and gave myself the back page ad space to try and move some more units. I even did something incredibly vain and ridiculously “meta”; I quoted my own writing in the ad, from a review I did in the very issue of the magazine the ad was placed in. I took some well-deserved flak for that one.

Here’s the first and only advertisement I ever designed. (click on it to view it much larger and to make it readable). Fantastic record, by the way – you can here all the songs on the band's posthumous "Runnin' Ape-Like From The Backwards Superman" CD.
