My name is Brian Walsby. Welcome to my site. I have been a drummer/artist/cartoonist for as long as I can remember (well over a quarter of a century). This website is a way to get some of the work that I have done (art wise) up in one place along with updates on other projects and music related things. I also have some really neat wares to peddle. So..welcome kids!

TORCHE/ MEN WITHOUT CHILDREN FIRST (T SHIRT)                                           SEE DETAIL 

Torche’s music obviously has some heavy influences. These guys come from heavy bands and a heavy scene, but they don’t profess to be a “heavy” outfit. I like that. In lead singer/ guitarist Steve Brooks, Torche have someone up top who can (honest to god) sing! I like that too. Over the course of their 4 album career, these guys are all over the map and quite difficult to pigionhole. It seems that I’m not alone in my appreciation for Torche as people have reacted pretty well to this (one time) Miami based quartet.

After seeing them recently, I wrote to Steve and asked if we could do something. Knowing that some of the band enjoyed Van Halen I proposed this idea. "Hell yeah" was the response. So here it is.  We hope you enjoy this fine shirt. -Brian Walsby

I met Helms Alee when they opened for an entire Melvins tour that I was on. This trio struck me as interesting and quite good from the get go. They are a hard band to pigeonhole. Are they metal? Well, not really. Are those some shoegazer parts in there too? Not really. Is there sort of a gloomy post-punk thing going on? Not Quite. What are they then? The only answer is that they are a very good band. As a group, they are also really close friends. They like each other! You honestly don't see that all of the time in bands. After toying around with a few ideas inspired by the old Archie comic books, I stumbled upon this idea of the three of them sharing a milkshake. Charles helped flash this out into the shirt it is today. Nothing seems to sum up Helms Alee more than this shirt. You can almost see the three of them doing this. We hope you like this shirt and support Helms Alee. They’re a great band with a hard to define sound, and that totally works in their favor. Thanks.
