This San Francisco transplant to Los Angel-es spent his twenties on the road with his band while managing to hold down his job at the legendary punk record label Slash. Turcotte started Kill Your Idols in 1999 and released winner of the 2000 Firecracker Award for a music book, Fucked Up + Pho-to-copied: Instant Art of the Punk Move-ment soon thereafter. He followed up with Post No Bills: Shepard Fairey, Metro and Punk Is Dead: Punk Is Everything along with Gingko Press. He co-owns Teenage Teardrops, Hope and Beta Petrol (an Indy Record Label specializing in vinyl only releases, a small art gallery in Echo Park and a music supervision and production company in that order). He has exhibited all around the world with his own brand of chaotic punk designs mixed with vintage posters, photos, set lists and fanzines and has produced events and installations for iconic brands such as Converse, Levi's, Hysteric Glamour, Dita, Bounty Hunter and Ray Bans.
