Letters… We Get Letters…

Mail starting 05.18.2001

Lady, you’re looking for Ink20, next door.


I am looking for an ink called Vari Tone Ink.

It is clear and sprays on paper/canvas and with added heat (heat tool) it turns the paper an old world, worn brown color.

Have you heard of this ink and if so where might I find it?

Thanks in advance.

We knew it was too good to be true.


I just wanted to know if you verified the info about the Kathleen Hannah and Tommy Lee sex tape reviewed by Mr. “Bring.” I’ve never heard of that distribution company and can’t find any record of one. If this info is phony, I’d bet the immensely uninteresting and untalented Courtney Love has something to do with it.

Tony Bring responds: P.T. Barnum was right…

I don’t get the Courtney Love reference…

But what about Daykart?

Your review of Stavesacre‘s new album, Speakeasy, was pathetic. Of course, you guys haven’t read Kamu [sic], Kierkegaard, Sartre, Heidegger, or Neitzsche, so why should I expect you guys to know the first thing about content? My favorite thing that you wrote in your review in regards to the lyrics in Speakeasy was “talking about who knows what.” At least, this shows how stupid and shallow the mind of Liza Hearon is. His lyrics are deep and penetrating for anyone capable of a minimal amount of reflective thought. My advice to you is, don’t write a review if you don’t know what you are talking about.

Also, if you understood what they were saying, you would realize why their music sounds different. Wouldn’t be amazing if music that expressed something unique and different sounded different too? Whatever… You guys suck.

We take it you’re an atheist…

Dearest Allie Gore,

Fuck you!!!!! A.F.I. is the most amazing band ever!!!! Davey Havok is like God………………..Only real. He sounds like he’s “trying to pass kidney stones”??? That was undoubtedly the incessant sloshing noise of the soapy, lukewarm water your brain seems to bask in. You might want to take it out, “Gore”, it’s shriveled up like a puny little raisin. Go ahead and listen to your trendy dirt punk, but leave A.F.I. the fuck alone: You’re not WORTHY to be exposed to music like that. Show some respect, you stupid fuck, or you’ll end up in a situation you won’t much like.

Allie Gore responds: I guess I’m supposed to shout the capitalized words?

Editor’s note: Seems like we get a note like this at least once a month. For you kiddies that can only stand reading positive stuff about your heroes, A.F.I., we recommend you check out Brian Kruger’s review of The Art of Drowning or Liza Hearon’s recent live review. And hey, feel free to send us some POSITIVE mail on those — equal time and all that…

Wait, that sounds nice

Dear Julio,

Thanks for the great review. Yours is the first review of 4-Trackaganza! that I’ve seen and gave me a good feeling.

Julio Diaz responds: Thanks for the kind words, Chris! Ink 19 will be featuring a full-length interview with Chris Murray soon!

Two nice ones in a row?

Hi there,

I would just like to thank you kids in the music department and Roi Tamkin for the glowing review of my band’s debut album, The Moto-Litas’ Talk Your Way Out of This, in the February issue Ink 19. That was very cool! Any time you are in Atlanta, give us a shout.

Thanks again,

What is it with Tony and Courtney, anyway?


I was reading a review in ’99 by Tony Bring on Ink 19 about a tape made by Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. I was wondering if your organization could give me a way to contact Tony Bring about this tape or if you would know how to go about obtaining one.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Tony Bring responds: From what I hear, Courtney Love won an injuction and stopped the disc from actually being released, but a number of promos are out there and occasionally show up on eBay for hundreds of dollars.
