PROJECT: Travis Weller and Morgan “Moman” Nixon first met in the Haight and quickly began collaborating on creative projects. Their collaboration resulted in a 2009 showing of Weller’s silkscreen prints at the asiwouldsay collective art gallery Moman and his friends ran in the Lower Haight. As the seeds of asiwouldsay spread far and wide, the mutant child of that project was born, Racing For Pink Slips. Founded in 2010, Racing For Pink Slips is an independent self-published art, zine and mixtape series based out of The Bay Area.
Included in this release is a high-quality 28-page art zine featuring seven of Weller’s original paper collages. Weller is currently exhibiting a larger body of works on paper at Zukowski Collective in Pacifica, CA. The zine is accompanied by a 90-minute mixtape of rare and out of print music spanning many genres. The DJ session at Long Road Studios in Oakland, CA was recorded to a high-end Tanberg cassette deck and mastered by Jah Gumby at Father Psalms Studio in Palolo, Hawai’i. All tapes have been dubbed to the highest quality Chrome Type 2 high bias cassettes available.
