Martin Atkins

Martin Atkins made this video on his trip to W+K. Who is this dude? Well he is a drummer and has played with Johnny Rotten, Trent Reznor, and pays his monthly porn subscriptions with producing soundtracks for shows on HBO and Showtime. And easily the most energetic speaker we have had thus far. (what kind of word is "thus"? fuck that dumb shit i'm boycotting it)

But he is most known for the book he has written - what he calls, "the first real book on touring." The book Tour:Smart, features contributions from Henry Rollins, Cynthia Plastercaster, The Enigma, the Suicide Girls, Zim Zum (formerly of Marilyn Manson), Kevin Lyman, and various other managers, journalists, venues, agents, sponsors, radio personalities and the like. He is currently in the studio working on a new album with The Countdown, Pigface's sixth studio album, The Religion of Marketing retrospective gallery show, and various other projects.

Patricks ugly side.

Martin displays his dominance.

Onlookers chuckle as Patrick's boyish good looks captivate a normally hetero audience...

Scratch and sniff 6 inch vinyl and custom limited propaganda albums. He brought tons of free stuff and signed copies of his book.
