Join Artbook in the MoMA PS1 Book Space on Saturday, March 24 during the Come Together Music Festival and Label Market to celebrate the publication of Dead Moon: The Book with a book signing with Toody Cole and an archive of Dead Moon memorabilia and artwork on display.
A conversation between Toody Cole and writer Jenn Pelly will take place in the VW Dome at 3:15 PM.
Oregon based trio Dead Moon (1987-2006) continues to inspire artists and fans with their raw and emotional punk rock, and their uncompromising approach to both art and life. Fred Cole, the bandfs legendary frontman, passed away in 2017, and to celebrate his life, Dead Moonfs music, and the comprehensive new book on the band being released by Mississippi Records, Come Together and Artbook will host a book release event and archival exhibition. Toody Cole, Fredfs musical and life partner, will be present throughout the day to sign copies of Dead Moon: The Book. Artbook will also display a never-before-seen archive of Dead Moon memorabilia, including Fred Colefs original album artwork collages, work-in-progress sketches of the iconic Dead Moon logo, band instruments, and more.
Dead Moon: The Book is a tribute to the unique aesthetic, unbelievably twisted path of a story, and role of Dead Moon as pioneers of the Portland music scene. The book tells the entire Dead Moon saga in the words of the band itself: just the voices of Fred, Toody and Andrew. It includes a complete illustrated discography of everything Fred, Toody and Andrew have releasedsong lyrics, band photos, flyers, and "weird ephemeral stuffnever before seen by the greater public. The package also includes 2xLPs of the 'best of' Dead Moon, lovingly remastered from the original tapes.
