The GUM Guys Dedicate Themselves to Being Lemon Men

Before we lost our minds in Miami, we met up over PBRs, ever so briefly, with Kevin Grady and Colin Metcalf, who were in town giving a presentation at Art Center. You might remember their bubblicious GUM, which was kinda like a comic book, kinda like a magazine, kinda like a limited-edition toy. Then they launched Lemon, a straight-up zine, which we praised awhile back for both its creativity and its amazing list of contributors: Malcolm McDowell, Billy Corgan, Leelee Sobieski, Ray Bradbury, Pop Levi, Matthew Modine, Gary Baseman, Chip Kidd, Stefan Bucher and Jill Greenberg were just in the last issue alone.

Grady and Metcalf told us that as much as they love making GUMs, they sure are a heckuva lot of work (they have day jobs, too, if you can believe it); instead, they’re looking to plump up Lemon, making it more like an annual. Their next issue, which we can’t divulge much about yet, sounds awesome. Let’s just say they’ve been watching a lot of men in white spandex. Events to celebrate the release will be in the form of Milk Bars (we don’t know what that means, but apparently it involves rum) held in NY and LA in early 2008, so keep your eyes peeled.
