Jeff Junker’s Queer Punk Horror Art

Published March 29, 2019 by biggayhorrorfan

Queer Horror Zine

Independent art makes the world go round. Case in point, one of the coolest things to happen to the LGBTQIA community was the ‘90s queer core music movement. Artists like Bikini Kill, Come, Pansy Division and the Rotten Fruits proved that there was a wide variety of DIY entertainment options for those who like an angrier, grittier, more angular approach to the creative muse.

In keeping with the energy of those vibrant times, artist Jeff Junker has just released Queer Punk Horror Art, a compilation of his work that is sure to bring back the ragged vibes of those days with the turn of every page.

The book is available now at https://www.amazon.com/Queer-Punk-Horror-jeff-junker/dp/1091273596/. So, pull on that paint flecked Darby Crash t-shirt and dive in!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Sta-Prest, “Nelly Strut/Suspiria”

“In the daytime, on the dance bar, the only American came to learn. But then the nighttime, and the blood and the screams, into vampires they turned.” – Nelly Strut/Suspiria, Sta-Prest

outpunkSo, that day I ran around town with the green junk from my health smoothie spread across my upper lip was truly memorable. Thankfully, it is not quite as significant (to most folks) as the first song released by fascinating 90s queercore band Sta-Prest. Debuting on 1994’s eclectic Outpunk Dance Party compilation, Nelly Strut/Suspiria is a perfect homage to outsider pride and a gloriously homo look at the classic Dario Argento film.


The band, featuring such iconic figures as Dudley Manlove (AKA Gary Fembot), Professor Swish (Mark Bishop) and Aloofah (Irayah Robles), also released an EP called Vespa Sex – which (if you really think about it) has some pretty scary connotations, as well.
