Johnny Winter v Jonah Hex

details a courtroom shoot-out I wrote about for Mojo in October 2003. It’s one of 17 old articles (all PDFs) which I’ve just posted on PlanetSlade.com. There you’ll find my pieces on Troma’s Best Trashy Videos (from Time Out), Quentin Crisp’s New York (The Independent) and Cerebus the Aardvark (The Idler).

Start with the menu.
