Yes, you read that correctly. Apparently when Mark Lanegan isn’t working on his solo material or collaborating with everyone from Soulsavas to Isobel Campbell, he’s setting up ways to capitalize on the figurine market. You can head to his website to see a bigger photo of his bobblehead figure…or, you know, you can purchase it there, too. When I saw this news on Pitchfork, I assumed some crazy fan had crafted a series of these but that’s clearly not the case. Kind of awesome. Totally strange.
Lanegan also has a few solo dates lined up for the West Coast, so you can check him out live and get him to sign your bobblehead. Sean Wheeler and Zander Schloss share the bill.
