Builder & Rocker
Playing in bands since the age of 16, Scottie “Mad Dog” Blinn describes his head-rush heartland music as Border Blues and Soul. “I’ve always come from a Blues root, and the music has evolved from our original So Cal ‘grease punk’ sound to include a heavy Latin vibe: deeply rooted Blues that’s a cross between Lightnin’ Hopkins, Tom Waits, Tito and Tarantula, and Social Distortion.” Scott came to the Iconic family a while back, as an Iconic Artist (he owns Iconic #0010!) and later joined the core builder’s team as a shaper, buffer, and finisher.
“Some say he never blinks, and that he roams around the woods at night foraging for wolves. He’s wanted by the CIA and that he sleeps upside down like a Bat. He appears on high value stamps in Sweden, and that he can catch fish with his tongue. Some say his skin has the texture of a dolphin’s, and that wherever you are in the world, if you turn your radio to 88.4 you can actually hear his thoughts. All we know is he’s called the Stig.”
