Peter Bagge

Seattle-based cartoonist/artist/musician Pete Bagge is most likely best-known for his comic book series Hate, which skewered ’90s society and pop culture with relentlessly satirical glee. Among the series’ preferred goals was Seattle’s grunge picture, and Bagge’s poster and record art for regional bands and brands — like the grandaddy of these all, Sub Pop — shown his lifelong like of music. Bagge had taken this love a step further in 1996 when he became a member of the power-pop group Actions Matches, which also included cartoonist Al Columbia and Fantagraphic Comics’ Eric Reynolds and Andy Schmidt, as the band’s drummer/vocalist. During Bagge’s stick with the group, the Actions Matches released singles like Fun Flies and 4-Monitor Mind, aswell as Cancer Dad on Frank Kozik’s label, Man’s Mess up. In 1999 he gathered a few of his songs from his adolescence into Peter Bagge’s Rockin’ Poppin’ Favorites, which also highlighted Bagge’s illustrations and essays about each musician.
