B.L.A.D. Issue nr. 7 - Rat Salad
The man, the myth, the rat! Rat Salad! This issue of BLAD is dedicated to the number one bad attitude rock and roll star out there. We will take you down and in to the dark and stinky obscure world of Rat Salad! Here you can find nice slapstick cartoon drawings made by the man himself, ads about his legendary gigs all around the world, and last but not least a splendid in-depth interview with the Rat talking about his career, band and life on the road in general. This is an absolute must to have for all dedicated fans of this obscure character and for heavy rockers with the right attitude in general. As Rat Salad would say "Eat Shit and Die!"
What is B.L.A.D.? Literally “blad” is the Norwegian word for “leaf”, and a “leaf” is a magazine, therefore B.L.A.D. must be a magazine, with a “blad” on the cover, a “blad” inside the packaging, and across its many internal “blads” there have been featured a wide range of illustrators and topics, and once even nothing at all.
The concept is simple; provide an artist or a topic with a surface that fits in your pocket, lovingly offset-printed in a secret basement and spread it around to anyone who would like to have a look inside. Since its humble beginnings in 2009 the zine has spread across the world and reached a double-digit number of issues, bringing its weird and wonderful content, created by the likes of Vilunki 3000, Ian Stevenson, Rat Salad, Hungry Radke and more, to far-flung corners of the world, and now even beyond, thanks to a new distribution deal with Motto! Berlin.
