GEORGE PETROS

Check out the new site of my early mag project:
EXIT

From ’84 through ’94 I put out EXIT Magazine. From ’90 through ’00 I edited and art-directed Seconds Magazine. From ’00 through ’05 I was a contributing editor of Juxtapoz and the senior editor of Propaganda. From ’08 to ’10 I was a contributing editor of ArtSync. My work appeared on DEVO album covers and in Thrasher, Paper, Screw, Apocalypse Culture 2 and Lollygag. I edited Steven Blush's American Hardcore: A Tribal History on Feral House and Les Barany's Carnivora: The Dark Art Of The Automobile on Barany Books. I compiled and produced Cleopatra Records’ Goth/Industrial comp Black Sunshine: The Tampa Underground and Beyond, and a collection of druggy Pop songs reinterpreted by Easy Listening and Jazz artists circa ’66 through ’71, Easy Listening Acid Trip, which can be heard on my website. My books are: Exploding Hearts Exploding Stars (Norman Gosney Publications, 1992), The EXIT Collection (Tacit, 1998), .45 Dangerous Minds: The Most Intense Interviews from Seconds Magazine (with Steven Blush) (Creation, 2003), Art That Kills: A Panoramic Portrait Of Aesthetic Terrorism 1984-2001 (Creation, 2006), and The New Transsexuals: The Next Step In Human Evolution (PetrosIdeas, 2012).
