From ARCADE #4 , winter 1975, edited Al Floogleman & Griffy
"Your violent thrashings stir me. From where are you people pulling the energy? It's a great trick, awareness and buoyancy. Yours is still the art 'that knows not its name,' down and dangerous, some of the only art around still life-impelled beyond its theory (that's decadence). There's a lot of dada ghosts riding their hopes on you; stay as unregenerate as you are."
Six years ago I believed the above quote was just as relevant in 2003 as it probably was in 1975 to what was once commonly refered to as "Underground Comix" and then later commonly referred to as "Alternative Comics."
