SPEEK EVIL is an illustrated magazine celebrating rock and roll in all its lank haired, overdriven, strung out, dirty denimed glory. It’s the brainchild of Australian rock underground musician and artist Mike “Fox” Foxall, who has for decades created album covers, posters, music videos and tshirts designs for van loads of bands as well as his own numerous entities including Nancy Vandal, Deadshit Johnson, The Neptune Power Federation and Sick Fizz.
Speek Evil posits a fantastical cult comic world where the superheroes aren’t Wolverine, Batman or Thor, but Dave Vanian, Wendy O Williams and Ace Frehley. Here readers are treated to a rock history untold in the official biographies - one where Ted Nugent is visited by the ghost of Christmas past, Ronnie James Dio’s diminutive stature was caused by a botched satanic curse and Jerry Only battles a haunted computer in the I.T department where he works. These tales are bolstered by yarns and vintage record reviews provided by contemporary Australian rock and rollers such as Ray Ahn, Jade Dicklord, Tim Rogers, Mick Simpson and Screaming Loz Sutch all brought to life by Fox through the magic of drawing.
