The Music and Videos of Al Columbia
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under rockAl Columbia 7 Oct 2009 9:30 AM

Most regular Flog readers are already familiar with Al Columbia's massive talent as a visual artist. But he's also an equally talented musician and filmmaker. I met Al when we were both 23 year-old punks who'd just scored jobs at Fantagraphics in 1994. We became fast pals, and I distinctly remember the first time he played for me a cassette tape of some of his musical recordings in my car as we were taking a ride somewhere. They blew me away, and I've been inspired by his music (not to mention his art) ever since. Thankfully, he's started putting a lot of his music up on his blog for others to hear, as well, and more recently has been creating videos for some of his tunes. I highly recommended you surf around his site. Here's a couple of direct video links:

Satan's Children

  

P.O.V.

I should mention that the snake in the first video was maimed by Al's cat and not harmed for the purposes of the video.
