Head Full of Snakes, issue 1

Chase & Galley director Stuart Geddes started Head Full of Snakes with friend Luke Wood. Together they publish, edit, design, print, bind and distribute the magazine. Luke is also one of the people behind indispensable New Zealand design journal The National Grid. HFoS started as Luke's blog, focussing on motorcycles, music and design. Together they started the print magazine as a motorcycle magazine, but one that also explores crossovers between motorcycling and art, design and music. The first issue included, amongst other things, interviews, photo essays, a comic called Biker Wolves, a music column and a sound work pressed on a flexidisk by Paul Elliman. It makes for an unusual mongrel of a magazine, but one that seemed to strike a chord somewhere with its first issue. The issue sold out within a couple of months, was featured on Magculture, Pipeburn and other places in the design and motorcycle press, and was acquired by the MOMA NY Library.
