Nine Questions

Adam Yeater

You may have seen Adam Yeater's "commix" on your way out of Bookmans. Yeater is local comic book creator and fine artist that's famous for his on-going story, One Last Day. The funny book consists of his strangely simplistic character committing suicide at the end of every page. It doesn't look like the indie artist will run out of sadistic suicidal ideas anytime soon. Adam also creates small mushroom sculptures and paintings of cute monsters.

What was the first concert you ever saw?

I was obsessed with death metal and grindcore in my teens and saw Morbid Angel, Entombed and Unleashed. It was in a small club in Cleveland, Ohio and it was completely insane!

What are you listening to these days?I have been listening to a band called Maximum The Hormone. They are from Japan, so I can't understand a word they are saying because they sing in Japanese. But I love them! A Transylvanian Funeral's latest album Gorgos Goetia is really good. When I want to relax I listen to Micheal Nyman, he does a lot of movie soundtracks. The Gattaca soundtrack is my favorite of his.

What was the first album you owned?

Slayer's Hell Awaits.

What artist, genre or musical trend does everyone seem to love, but you just don't get?

Modern day cotton candy pop music. All of it. 

What musical act, current or defunct, would you most like to see perform live?

Danzig, before he got knocked the f**k out. 

Musically speaking, what is your favorite guilty pleasure?

Queen Greatest Hits.

What song would you like to have played at your funeral?

Radiohead "Videotape."

What band or artist changed your life, and how?

Radiohead's "Fake Plastic Trees" got me through a really bad break up when I was young and some major teen angst. Some songs come and go, but for some strange reason that song has stayed with me my entire life all the way from cassette tape to MP3. 

Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?

If I had to pick one it would be Deadhorse, Peaceful Death and Pretty Flowers.  Still one of my top 10 albums. There is nothing like some crusty death/grind core to inspire you to draw some insane "commix"!
