M is for Mudhoney.  
I’m seriously late to this game, but wanted to share my drawing anyways!  Mudhoney was a really important part of growing up for me.  They were seriously the coolest band to me, and i always wanted to jump around on stage the way they did.  And this record, Superfuzz Bigmuff really blew the doors of rock off for me at the time.  I wore the shit outta my CD!

M is for Madonna
I remember hearing or reading somewhere that Madonna hates the nickname “Material Girl” that was attached to her after this song and video were released. It’s funny how we don’t really ever get to pick our nick names. This year when the Miley Cyrus fiasco went down I went and watched Madonna’s infamous performance and was really amused by how incredibly tame it was.
I think like Janet Jackson, Madonna was deeply influential to most guys my age, between her aping Marilyn Monroe in this video, reworking Beauty and Beast in her “Like a Virgin” video and then whatever the hell was happening in “Like a Prayer”
I have a funny memory from when I went to St. Clare’s Catholic School in Palm Beach Gardens sitting with my sister and my two younger cousins as a young girl told us how Madonna was awful and blasphemy and described in detail about how wrong it was that she was kissing black Jesus. Mere moments later the song came on over the top 40 radio station and the girl was singing a lot to it and shoulder shaking. I pointed out that the song playing was the one she has just been complaining about.
She was shocked.
I guess blasphemy is okay as long as it’s got a good beat.

M is for Morrissey by Amalgamated Biscuit
It’s Morrissey time for Alphabands. I didn’t use much reference for this, it is just the young Morrissey as he looks in my mind.

I struggled with this week’s picture.  I’ve been listening to this artist since I was an infant.  The music to me calls to mind pleasant breezes, airy spring days with dancing light coming through the boughs of giant trees and gurgling fountains with ornate sculpture.  I couldn’t seem to figure out how to graphically represent the feelings and moods that ebb and flow with this music.
Wolfgang Mozart wrote the first music I remember listening to, as a very young child.  My parents played his music for me and my older brother on a small cassette player in the hallway out side our bedrooms.  His symphonies and concertos led us into dream land for years.
Later in my youth I was fortunate to see a production of The Magic Flute that was performed entirely in English.  Maurice Sendak, the creator of Where The Wild Things Are, was the costume and set designer for the production. 
Mozart wrote over 600 pieces of music in his short time on the Earth; he died when he was 35 but had been composing since he was five years old. I’ve been listening to him my whole life and I still enjoy his myriad compositions.

Make sure you use ALL CAPS when you spell this week’s #AlphaBands entry’s name, MF DOOM, the greatest MC with no chain ya ever heard. Not just a villain but a super villain, MF DOOM spits rhymes from behind a mysterious metal mask, working tirelessly to take over the world by way of blending samples of 70’s Hanna-Barbera cartoon shows with mind-splitting lyrics about food. Maroon me on an island and offer me only one record to listen to over and over and I very well might choose MADVILLAINY, his 2004 collaboration with Madlib.
I did my best to replicate his metal face with ink, watercolor and gouache on some pretty dope watercolor paper from, like, France or something.

Let us not forget one of the most important things about the Universal Monsters era: The Creature From The Black Lagoon was created by a woman, Milicent Patrick.

Nearly unheard of at the time, ms Patrick is responsible for creating one of the single most recognizable characters, not only in Universal history but in all of film history. She was an incredible talent and she should be honored as such.

One of the coolest creature costumes in the history of film.

Forgot there was a Caps game on tonight. I was noodling around with some modeling clay.

L is for Cyndi Lauper
I think if you were playing a drinking game with Cyndi Lauper videos and you had to take a shot for each time Captain Lou Albano appears you’d be very drunk before the second video. The strange mix of pop, punk and 1950’s “nostalgia” present in her videos is so bizarre. The sexuality presented in her videos is bizarrely grotesque. Like opening up a Playboy centerfold that drips Nickelodeon green slime and has Garbage Pail Kid’s stickers plastered around it.

This number was included on the PMRC’s “Filthy Fifteen” songs.  Go Cyndi!
