Cult Pump (Powerhouse) is also a silkscreen print studio based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Cult Pump publishes the horror comics anthology “Radbrækket” (co-edited with Tue Sprogø), the experimental magazine CPPP, artist books and comics by several artists , cassette and vinyl records by Oltretomba, OT, Angkor Wrack, Cop Lord and Heksehyl.
