Just found this second edition print in my parents garage (I bought it back in the early 90's). Luckily it is in 1 piece. There are some wrinkles. Any idea on how I can make those go away or at least look better? Sorry...new to this and not at all a collector.
Yep. This is THE flagship.
Bought a second edition printing of "Soundgarden/PJ" on ebay for 200 bucks -- then found the "Man's Ruin" version for 50. Sold Soundgarden for 250. It's like I got the Man's Ruin print for free.
One of the few times in my life I've ever made a return on an investment...
Great poster. Still my favorite. It lives in the room with my Helmet/Jawbox print with Jane Mansfield -- both framed prominently.
weird...i hadn't read all of these comments until today. that's an interesting story, frank. knowing the woman in question, i'll bet that her version is a bit different.
that said, it's still a great poster.
i must be the lamest person ever - i just found this site yesterday!
i have #29/450 of this framed on my wall at home...picked it up at Psychadelic Solution for $20 in 93. it is as bad-ass today as it was back then.
I ripped mine down from the UNICORN wall the night after the show.
The Mexican dudes who ran the Unicorn had 2 of these for the LONGEST time rolled up in their office. Why I didnt snag em, Ill never know. All I had to do was ask.
At the time, it just didnt seem important.
The UNICORN is now a '99 cents' sore called CARAMBA. If you go in through the side, its a Spanish niteclub called 'El Unicorno'.
I kid you not.
This image is being used on a poster to promote some local band here (can't remember the name, never heard of them before). Just on little black and white photocopies around the neighbourhood. I find it amusing for a number of reasons. The design of their posters is shitty, so they must have thought "y'know, this girl, THIS IMAGE, is totally going to get people's attention and get them to come to the show." Its obviously stolen, obviously something they didn't create. Everybody who sees their poster would know that, its just SO obvious.
Secondly, I think these images are starting to take over my life.
but they get on the guest list man!
and they get to be on posters! :lol:
i'd rather have my band on a cool poster than my face.
not to say i haven't been flatered when people have done art about me but fuck it's nice3 to have an identity beyound 'so and so's whore'
or 'the girl from the 7" cover'
bizam! tag alongs, freebees, hole's, just to name a few more...but, they really do women an overall injustice...and hookers for that matter, how is a girl to make money while others give it away for free...its sad really.
If it makes you feel any better (and even if it does not) I always was and am attracted to those girls who have the urge to create themselves, who have a passionate need to expel creatively...those in the cattle show bore me tirelessly, they make it easy to think not so highly of them...pass the peanuts please.
so many people, esp. chicks like to live vicariously through others.
it's really gross.
like it's cooler to have a song about you or a painting of you than to write a song or do a painting.
it's really bums me out.
'oh my boyfriend is in a band'
i may suck at almost everything but at least i try. ;-)
couldn't imagine just sitting on the sidelines of life, waiting for some guy to fufull me.
i recently had some kid lie to my ex-girlfriend (i think he wanted to impress her) about helping out on a poster I did like 2 years ago... he said he collaborated with me and everything... when i told her she was pissed that he'd so blatantly lied to her... and when I called him on it he all kindsa back-pedalled. avoids seeing me at shows now...after he used to always say hi. people suck. I have hte shirt with this image on it, sans text, but it's from back when I bought non-tight as hell shirts, so rarely wear it.
Jermaine, it'll never happen.
Frank, I was once dating a girl that I had pose for a poster and she started irratating me so I pulled the plug. I still used her pose but changed her from a red head to a multiracial NYC looking chick. She had bragged all over town that she was dating me and was gonna be on my next poster and when it hit the streets she was superheated! She looked super stupid, it was funny.
A la Jermaine...It was a HOT spring Saturday and I was just sitting around my workspace....this old apartemnt sort af plcae near downtown Austin on 14th and San Jacinto...listening to the band on a jam box...no idea what to do...I started flipping thru a stack of 70s softcore porn posters I had just scored earlier that morning at the flea market...liked this one, so I cut it out and was like looking at it when the doorbell rings. Its this really hot chick, come by for booty call. Looked a lot like this girl right here mater of fact...so I proceed to like tie her up and get nasty for a while. Later, she splits and I finish the poster. Good day,popular poster.

Yeah I was gonna order that Nirvana one back when I got my first Art Rock catalog (my introduction to all of this) back in middle school. I had to wait a month till I had the 15 bucks though...and by the time I had it, Kurt had killed himself and the price had jumped to 75 bucks. Dammit! I coulda taken a chunk out of those loan payments with that thing now!
One of the holy grails for Kozik collectors. A second run of 2500 (!!) was done a few years ago. The first run was only 450.
If you are chasing the big ones from Kozik then this one, the 'Indian Chief - Pearl Jam', the Nirvana and the NIN/Marily Manson posters are the ones to find.
Also the Gimme Shelter 2000 poster is coming on strong.
