max - i was joking - honest! a little ghumor is a very bad thing it seems.
in all honesty, both jeff's lemons poster and my ventures poster happened around the same. i really don't know whose was first.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was meant the other way around.
Besides, everyone knows that Chantry, Kleinsmith, Kozik , Brad Pitt and Gary Coleman owe their "careers" to us Aesthetic Apparatus fellas.
art - I took it as the other way around...I think he was saying that Jeff K. was probably influenced by designs like this. Of course, I could be wrong - it could have been a slam directed at you.
It's so easy to misunderstand a person's intent on the internet...
this is a pretty old posters - 5 or 6 years, i think. the ventures were a northwest instro band that formed around the time of the wailers - maybe a little before. they were from tacoma. they were pre-surf, which didn't come along for several years. then they got lumped into the 'fast instro' sound that was the hallmark of surf. then, being smart, they jumped in with both feet and cashed in.
but, they used to be the house band at the java jive!
