Popping culture: Fucked Up's Damian Abraham is immortalized in bobble-head form
Although it's two months away, I already know what I want for Christmas.
A Damian "Pink Eyes" Abraham Throbble-Head.
I've written about Damian for Xtra before and mentioned him here on this blog, so the fact that I am a fan is no real surprise.
The "Throbble-Head" is made by Aggronautix, which has also created bouncy plastic effigies of such counter-cultural icons as Jello Biafra, GG Allin and Wendy O Williams. Abraham is quoted on the site as stating, "To know that I will now be able to stand myself shoulder to shoulder (on a toy shelf) with my heroes like Jeff Clayton, Keith Morris and J Mascis has made all the nights away from my family and stitches in my head worth it."
Abraham has joked about the bobble-head on his Twitter feed, saying that he is now available in a "home version" and posting such things as, "Now my Bobblehead can beat my son's Blue Jay Bobblehead's asses!"
