Took the plunge into painting leather. Finished this up just in time for the Mastodon/Coheed show in Austin. Went almost completely opposite of my first jacket, which was super busy. Simple, streamlined, no fancy bits, just fucking raw.





The back is finished. Not sure if I'm going to do anything on the front. If I do, it will probably be something like just a list of band names. I had also considered putting some additional symbols (lambda, iron, etc.) or a phrase (probably "solve et coagula") around the anti-music symbol, but I ultimately thought it was better to have a single monolithic declaration.

Destroy all music.

Good work!

If “battle vest” means “vest that’s going to get me into fights”, I think you’ve done it!

Looks badass! Why is your goal to destroy music?

The "music" in "destroy all music" does not refer to the more rational (i.e. wider) definition of auditory art, but to the stodgy and pointlessly traditional biases that many people possess as a badge of their sheltered and pearl-clutching nature. Normies and traditionalists have consistently referred to various incarnations of rock music as sheer noise and not as "real" music. This symbol and phrase, pioneered both by anarchistic outsiders and highly-trained avant-garde musicians, is a statement against the establishment's attempt to fundamentally invalidate the emotions and viewpoints of those in extremis.

Oh, so you want to destroy music as a concept. Neat!

You do realise, don’t you, that nowadays “rock music” is “dad music”?

In fact, Elvis and the Beatles qualify as “classical music” now.

When I say "rock music", I mean that in the sense of the broadest possible genre (i.e. as opposed to electronics, hip-hop, etc). If I were talking specifically about the kind of music that Elvis and the Beatles played, I would say "rock and roll".

"Rock", as I use it, includes the subgenres of metal and punk, as well as the more extreme and modern styles and scenes of those subgenres.

Well, as I’ve been told, all of those except hip-hop (or, maybe broader, rap) are now “dad music”. Passé.

I would have to know who told you that, how they told you and what context they told you that in in order for that to provide a notable amount of dialectical interest for me.
