Punk! An interview with Avi Spivak


Oi! This week Avi Spivak, editor of Brooklyn rock n’ roll/comics magazine Human Being Lawnmower, was in Dublin so the Comic Cast met up with him to talk about his background in comics, the year long production of the magazine and his strip Suicide City that appears in Denimzine (Scandinavias biggest magazine for punk, rock and garage music). Live music on the show comes from Avi’s  travelling companion Daddy Long Legs, a trashy rhythm & blues band from New York. Put on your scruffiest T-shirt, motorcycle jacket, and jeans and enjoy!
