Biography

John Bergin is a graphic novel artist and a darkwave musician. Among his musical projects are Paved in Skin, Trust Obey and C17H19NO3. In 1994, Trust Obey released an album entitled “Fear and Bullets” which was limited to 1500 copies. The copies were distributed with signed and numbered copies of James O’Barr’s comic book, The Crow. The music itself was based on and inspired by the comic.

As Trust Obey, Bergin was the first act signed to Trent Reznor’s Nothing Records, though the debut album, “Hands of Ash”, was never released on the label. After separating from Nothing, Bergin released the album on Fifth Colvmn Records in 1996, with a sticker on the front quoting Reznor: “Not a great commercial potential.”

In 1999, Invisible Records re-released “Fear and Bullets”. The re-release is a reworked version of the original album. It omits two songs from the original version, and replaces them with two new ones. The new album also includes previously unpublished drawings of The Crow by creator, James O’Barr.

    I love this band. Their songs are so unbelievably powerful and stong, packed up with so much hate and despair. I can't think of any other band that produces so much excellent "listenable hatred" like Trust Obey. I really hope that John Berging will resurrect this band from it's cold grave one day.

    It really fits to original Crow comic book. So dark, so intense, so much anger in it. Really great project.

    Not as good as John Bergin's other project C17h19no3 , but really quite interesting. I'm a big fan. John's a really talented artist and musician. Check out his webpage Grindertool.com
