I'd thrown up during sex a few times, but I was courteous enough to pull out and run to the bathroom...
Wasn't necessarily the girls...just too much booze in the belly and a lot of movement....basically like drinking half a keg and trying to run a few miles.....bleechh...
For sure, cause I have had plenty of people tell me that they had sex in the bathroom while we played.
When EF first started playing in NYC, way back in 1991/1992, there were people at the shows that were never exposed to real rock n roll, which has a driving back beat, and just like in the 1950s when rock n roll was new, the back beat (called the F-beat in the 1950s) for sure made something happen, cause the first bunch of shows, people told me that they had sex while we played in the backstage area, behind the stage, in the bathroom, up against the wall on the side of the stage, etc. Weird but true.
These people were pretty young, like 20-21.
It's a great looking poster, I'm not complaining about that.
And it is humorous and very nicely done.
It' just that I counted 4 EF posters that are puke themed, I just don't want to be associated with puking all the time now.
(and Lonnie's EF puke poster fit the place which was a sucky diner club, that we wound up canceling the show at anyways).
I'm just cranky about posters in general lately, most are just not grabbing me. Everything seems too easy route to me.
Rock n roll shows are about high energy and sex and excitement, and I hardly ever see posters that reflect that, and I bet it is because most people can't cause they don't know how.
Anyways, in general this is a cool poster, as an illustration piece, but not so rocking.
I don't know, I just get worried that the posters sometimes keep new people away if they are undecided.
If overheard just too many people looked at posters and saying amongst themselves "is that they kind of band they are? I don't know if I really want to go" and on the other hand overhearing for amazing posters:
"wow! Cool! I got go to that show, it's gotta to be great!".
Simplistic, but I make it my business to watch and listen to people's reactions to posters.
its' the frontline of defense for a show when you have tons of competition in a city. Dig?
I think the crit might be a little harsh, seems like an honest mistake to make. Bummer that Sal considers it off the mark though.
Brutefish are good people, & I'm guessing their time & effort was invested here out of respect for the band.
as one of the other artists who had frankie puking in one of your posters, i'd like to take this time to apologize sal.
i was unaware of the no-puking clause at the time, and hope to strike my puking frankenstein poster from the face of the earth.
i do however, have a guy puking on my latest poster, and the band thought it was great.
at least posters aren't scratch and sniff.
Well, I am supposed to approve all posters, but if someone makes one and doesn't tell me, what can I do?
And, I know that Jim Beam doesn't want puking and being drunk associated with their liqour for many reasons, in fact they may get mad at EF for this poster giving them a bad image as well!
We drink whiskey at our shows, on stage, we don't puke and get drunk, we can hold our liqour, we are men, not wimps.
I never even was told that someone was doing this poster, I never saw it and the artist never contacted me.
I had already asked Johnny Ace to do the real poster for the show, since he is in houston area too.
We aren't Vomit Frankenstein.
This is the third puking Frankenstein poster someone made.
Nice art though.
But it bother me, as far as representing my band and what our shows are all about.
I don't even drink much, I haven't got drunk since 1984. I drink some, but never get drunk.
I want people to think of that they are going to have an exciting time at our shows, not be depressed watching people puke.
Well, if you had asked me about doing the poster, I would have said I don't want that.
It's one thing for it to be St Patrick's Day and so on.
Well, I am going to get someone else to make another poster for that show that represents what I want it to be about, since it is my name and my reputation that goes on to these posters.
I don;'t know why artists don't think about that the posters are advertising the show and are to entice people to come to the show that might not have been intending on going and that they represent what the music is about. I don't see how puking is going to get hot girls to want to come to this show, etc.
It makes us look bad, like we are some drunken jackasses, whereas EF has been around for 15 YEARS and if we sucked we never would have lasted so long.
These kind of posters depress me, and make me cringe because I am embarassed that they are representing my good name and no tarnishing it.
It makes a negative connotation in people's minds with our name and an image.
