Martin Atkins, the drummer, author, lecturer, and more, famous for the bands Pigface, The Damage Manual, Killing Joke, PiL, the label Invisible Records, the list goes on, has announced a new initiative (of which he always seems to have many): he’s fundraising for the Museum of Post Punk and Industrial Music, to be sited in Chicago.
Atkins posted a FAQ where he explains that one can become a founder by buying a t-shirt (with which you can gain admittance to special and pre-opening events) and other unique hand-screened shirts. He’s also accepting admissions to the collection which will feature “just a shit ton” of material. He later posted an update with a taste of the artifacts going into the collection.
If you’re into this kind of music and/or a fan of Martin Atkins, it makes you wish you lived near Chicago. Keep up with further announcements by following Atkins on Facebook.
