excellent poster for a show that seemed to be falling apart and ended up being one of the most memorable. i ran the rocketbar and although this show was put on by an outside promoter i ended up with a few of these posters. if anyone is interested in one email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
i saw an exhibit in an art museum of some guy who made jewelry/sculptures of small animal bones, insect parts and precious gems and gold and platinum, etc. etc. he created these tiny cyborg tank beetle termite monster soldier gizmo creatures. they were really cool. i don't know if they were animated, they were just under glass.
the whole idea of of "frankensteining" has always been close to my heart...
sort of like 'the texas chainsaw massacre".
We dissected them in elementry school. I don't know, I think I got you beat on being backwoods. Me and my dad used to go out to the desert and find random animal bones that were sun bleached and take them home and hot glue them together into bizarre monsters. Then add red marbles for the eyes to top them off.
huh. i was always told they pooped them. i guess us backwoods hicks up here can't really tell the difference between owl poop and owl vomit when we play with it.
like it matters. it's so much fun as it is, whatever it is... "look ma! i made me a shrew!"
actually owls poop out these strange hairy pellets full of bones. an owl pellet is essential everything that the owl can't digest. so it comes out as a pellet shaped wad of hair filled with the entire skeleton of the critter it ate. they're pretty cool to take apart - they're almost like little model kits. you find them at the bottom of places owls perch.
and yes, trying to print with a wad of hair and bones is really really hard. so i went with the seagull shit instead. i had hoped no one would notice. damn you!
one last thing - the promoter told me the owls were instensely psych and scary. other than that i have no idea what they are like. so, in ufology lore as it's developed over the genrations, there is often talk of "shadow memories" (or "shield" or "false" mmemories) of low flying owls at night that is our minds covering for abduction experiences (the flying glowing saucer disk gets "remembered" as a low flying white owl at night - usually a barn owl). so, i just ran with that old bit of crackpot mythology to create the metaphor for the music by this band. it's a stretch, but i think it's funny and creepy.
really? geez, nobody ever tells me nothin'. first i've heard of it.
poster sux, now. thanx a lot, dood!
in fact several people have told me the show rocked. fuck if i care. any bands called "low flying owls' or "valiant thor(r)" or "tone rodents", i just wouldn't ever bother to check out. sounds too silly.
no, it's a real poster that was done as an experiemnt in split fountains (three of them). i was experimetning collaging old stamps i found. the flying saucer is a common motif in my stuff (they pop up everywhere). the type was clipped out letter by letter from those little tab dividers we used to use in our three-ring binders in high school back in the sixties. and, yes, it does look like a dick.
This is an excellent poster, Art did a really great job. The funny thing about it is that the Low Flying Owls cancelled, and Valient Thorr is misspelled. The colors are more subtle in person, but it still looks rad on my wall.
I'm going to agree that this is pretty fucking bad ass. Reminds me of my cousin's bedroom when I was a kid. He was just a few years older and had all kinds of trippy posters and wacky shit in his room. It always made me feel like one of the older kids when I hung out in there. My cousin Scotty OD'ed a few years ago. I miss that big dumb fucker.
eh, doesnt look like a kozik at all in my humble opinion, especially not early kozik
the fonts/type, the colors, the layout, the lack of a juxtapozing or laternatively a psych/punk type of image
seriously, this doesnt look like a kozik at all
it DOES look like a Chantry though even though I blinked at the amount of color this poster has.
