It's hard being a starving artist.

Ismarc is a singer found in the Skum Pitt in Junktown, in 2161.


Ismarc learned a little from an old man in the Hub, and also from the scavs in Adytum. Ismarc usually sings in the Skum Pitt in Junktown, but sometimes also in the Hub, Adytum, or the Brotherhood of Steel.


Ismarc frequently sings the following song:


Your head is a bowl!
It's round like a mole!
I'd rather fry!
Than pay you the toll!

Another of his songs starts with the lyrics, "I know your mind".

Behind the scenesEdit

His song is likely a reference to the Nine Inch Nails song "Head Like A Hole" which goes:


Head like a hole
Black as your soul
I'd rather die
Than give you control
