Go Mom was the brain child of one sick deviant known as Norris H. Buckman. Being neither man nor myth, Buckman was the freakish creative union of Shimmy Boyle and Elliott Kuhn.
In 2008, after four years of collaboration, the two parted ways, each embarking on his own solitary journey through the varied voids and wastelands of imagination.

Let our lives be what they should.
