LA Guns Manager Who Knocked Out NOLA Graffiti Artists Shows No Remorse


There's no second thoughts in the L.A. Guns camp. In their recent NoDef interview with Skylar Fein, local graffiti artists The Bourghog Guild talked about a recent alteraction outside the Marigny club Siberia with the manager of hair metal band L.A. Guns after writing R.I.P L.A. Guns on the door of their tour trailer. "Next to some stickers," the Bourghog Guild told Fein. "It was clean, yeah. I understood why I got knocked out. I deserved it." Apparently Markham agrees. After seeing the article on a Facebook post by the band's singer Tracii Guns, the manager wrote, "Now you know why the second one got bitch slapped before i knocked him out." 


R.I.P. and Run

Skylar Fein Talks to Street Artists The Bourghog Guild About Tagging Banksy, Getting Punched Out By L.A. Guns and the USA



Marigny-Bywater residents mystified by the recent wave of R.I.P.-themed graffiti may find solace (or rage) in the following: the drippy messages that say things like "R.I.P. Cy Twombly," "R.I.P. Banksy" (on top of an actual Banksy), and "R.I.P. Swoon" (on top of a Swoon), messages that have declared the death of writers, politicians and food items, are the work of two young men, and perhaps more, who live in the 9th Ward and work under the name Bourghog Guild.
