“Aaron Horkey was birthed and reared deep in the heart of the Rural Midwest, specifically the small farming community of Windom, Minnesota. Key personality traits include debilitating social ineptitude and a perverse attention to detail. Also, believes himself to have been born 100 years too late. Enjoys desolation, megafauna and transplanting sumacs. Currently ensconced in a bucolic whistle stop just west of the Mississippi, he whiles away the hours writing of himself in the third person, staring at his chore list and cultivating ulcers. Fully prepared for and welcoming a long languishing into obscurity, Aaron is the sole survivor of the Black Osprey Dead Arts Society and founding member of the Cottonwood County Druids Skateboard Gang. Previous clients include INIT Records, Cougar Den, Flip Skateboards, Playge, The Blinding Light, ISIS, Converge, Neurosis, Boris, Andrew Bird, Grails, Genghis Tron, Spitfire Wheels, SOS Press, Fat Possum Records, Deathwish INC, Hydra Head Records, Bruce Horkey’s Wood and Parts, Agenda, Big Brain Comics, Cable, Flight of the Conchords, Mogwai, Ride Snowboards, Magic Bullet Records, Khanate and 420X10 Records. Published in the following periodicals: Thrasher, Concussion, Sea of Seed, Color, Monster Children, Juxtapoz, Ollie, Free & Easy and Low.”
