Greasy extras from imagined 60s biker films. Troubled skeletons with no job prospects. Sexy knife wielding chicks embedded in cults. It’s all grist to the mill for serial escapist Mike “Fox” Foxall, whose work has adorned the Australian rock and roll underground in the form of posters, album covers, and music videos for over 25 years. Music creation has always gone hand in hand with the art, with Fox banging away on a guitar and writing songs for bands like Nancy Vandal, The Neptune Power Federation, Deadshit Johnson and Sick Fizz. He has also tried his hand at short film making, (with You Are So Dead becoming a Tropfest finalist in 2004) and co-hosting the music discussion podcast Condition Mint with his good mate Jaso before flagrant copyright infringements saw it burn to the ground.
Basically if there is little financial gain in it Fox has spent vast amounts of time dedicating himself to it. It's not a strategy they teach in business school but who cares what those dorks say.
