Johnny Florida joins gigposters today just to come on and slag people who have worked hard to make this scene legitimate. Sounds like a sour grapes bootlegger to me..

Johnny FloridaSend Johnny Florida a message :   Ferres, don't worry about what these fucking idiots are on about, Richard Goodall's gallery is a complete ripp off, most of the US artists stuff on sale in there is twice the price as the stuff you get on the internet. They're not the fucking poster mafia. You don't need permission to do a poster, poster nazis the fucking lot of them.   2007-03-08 08:16:06
FerresSend Ferres a message :   Christ! this has started a right debate. Looks like I'd better get in touch with The Goodall gallery before I get lynched.   2007-03-07 06:39:28

SwitchSend Switch a message :   One venue hardly equates to 'owning the english poster scene'. They have however given people a chance over here of actually making a poster (and making money) for a signed band in Manchester/Nottingham. So how is that a band thing?
I still contact management and promoters and still do posters for them. The Goodalls offer me another route to getting my work seen and sold, for which im greatful for.

RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   I think it's neato how the Goodall Gallery 'owns' the English poster scene thing and you guys continually take it up the ass from them, so they'll continue to be your 'benefactor.'
Reminds me of Rome!

DRGSend DRG a message :   I'm about to PM you Nick, but to summerise: Matt has no history as any kind of bootlegger, and I'd be surprised if he's done this poster without being asked. I don't know this for certain but it is my assumption that *someone* at the venue has authorised him to do this poster.   2007-02-07 17:11:30
SwitchSend Switch a message :   Graham I see where you are coming from. I am talking about the venue. The goodall gallery has worked hard to get a venue on side for us artists to do posters for bands in this one venue. Posters like this dont really help the 'cause' for other venues/bands coming on side.
I dont rely on the Goodalls for a gig poster to do, I still do flyers for friends bands and other venues.They do however give me the oppurtunity to do things correctly and make some money out of my art .
Id really like to see Matt approaching the gallery to do posters for the Academy here in Manchester , the more the merrier.I just like to see things done correctly.It all helps in the long run for gigposter artists here in the Uk, you know ?

DRGSend DRG a message :   I see Matt's work around Leeds quite a bit, and I'm not sure his work is screenprinted (or at least not all his work). My guess would be this is a poster made to promote the gig, not made as merch.
This raises an issue that needs addressing really. I don't understand why it's assumed that UK poster artists have to go 'through' the Goodall Gallery. Don't get me wrong I like them and am appreciative of their endeavours in drawing attention to the medium, but it makes far more sense for artists to be dealing directly with the bands and venues. Just my opinion!

SwitchSend Switch a message :   thought so, here is the legitimate poster for that night, by no other than leia bell.
You have got a good style, why dont you approach the gallery to do things properly. I could post numerous bands posters id love to do, but that would be bullshit wouldnt it?
