The "here it is tiger" isn't a band on this bill either. it's the original text on the Condom machine. That red directly under it is a tiger head but all the rest of the label looks like this image. All distressed and torn off. I din't enhance the deteriorattion on this much at all except for the new info for the bands and venue. I'll post the photos in the forums later...
these new ones are great. what i like the most is that you guys cointinue to push, you don't stay satisfied with what 'works'. i'm not very eloquent this morning. my poiint is, i now understand why you were too tired and pussed out to go see scissorfight last night.
now, i feel this is a much finer example of what f27 does so damned well - the re-creating of the common and benign (even beneath noticing) of the environment that surrounds this culture. they are extremely good at taking the everyday world and re-defining it as a profound comment on the subject of the band and the club and the CULTURE it denotes.
i think this poster is a far, far better effort than the 'porn ad' device. compare the two and just see it for yourself - this kicks the porn poster's butt on very subtle levels. it's like the idea comes thropugh with a crystaline brittle strength. the porn poster turns into a goopy porridge in comparison.
thanks Charlie. The Carousel Lounge is a tiny hole in the wall place right by my house. They started having bands there recently and it gets packed. It's bring your own bottle and they sell set ups. Right next to a liqour store. Been there for years and has this circus theme with a carousel behind the bar. This image was composited off photos I took of these old condom machines in their bathroom. Talk about being a creep with a camera in the men's room.
There ya go goodtimes I opened that door wide for ya. Have fun with it..
