i went through this whole period where i printed on anything i could find that wasn't your typical paper. i printed on plastic, metal, vinyl records, vintage wallpaper, garbage, anything stupid i could think of. that doesn't mean i invented the idea. there's lots of precendents for anything i could think of.
nowadays, it would suck trying to do anything on a record like this now after all of these other great versions of the "on the record" idea. everybody yells "rip off". but that ain't the issue. a good job is a good job.
my point is, that i may have done this "first" (whatever that may mean), but that doesn't make it mine alone any more than me copying your "printing on paper". it's the idea and then pulling it off that counts.
blah blah blah. but i hope my point came across.
"You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like - I'm really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it's sort of in between those, really. It's like a Mach piece, really. It's sort of - Well, this piece is called Lick My Love Pump."
i figgered that if you're going to print a poster on a record, there ought to be some decent records tossed in. i even printed on a vintage copy of the very first pressing of the sonics "here are the sonics" lp. that's worth some serious scratch. i wonder where it ended up?
this is from about '94. it's printed on an lp with metallic silver ink. all the lp's came out of my collection - i had too many and it was time to cull the collection. there were some rare records that i printed on, too. probably the rarest was a copy on the first sonics record, 'here are...'. i gave that copy of the poster to dave crider, but it got nicked at the show. oh well.
only needed one pushpin to hang it. it spun!
