Cool. Was that the DIY compilation you are referring to? These posters may not be exciting design-wise, but they make me envision the scene back then and how cool it must have been. I may be biased because I am in a boston band, but I think the scene here these days is going strong! A definite upswing.
i tripped across them in a pile of stuff left over from a project i did for rhino records about ten years ago. i'm cleaning house after the holidaze here and i spotted these cool old things and thought i'd post them. glad you appreciate them.
boston had one of the earliest and coolest and most rocking punk scenes in the early days (starting witht he original modern lovers back in the very early 70's). but it unfortunatley died out early on - probably due to the power of nyc's scene sucking all of the talent southward (sort of like psychedelia sucked all of the music talent away from seattle and the nw back in the late 60's and early 70's) it wasn't until the mid 80's that boston bands were back on the map.
