"Flaming Love" was a DayGlo poster. Had that and "The Expierenced" Hendrix poster, which I still have, and some really large psychedelic mandalas. Blackslites, candles, incense and weed. Flaming Love indeed.
i'm going to have to agree with chloe on this one. i actually somewhat enjoyed the ep on sub pop (found the vocals kind of grating, but the music solid), expecting their live show to increase my appreciation of it. i don't know...everytime i listened to the ep, i just expected this insanely energetic performance. well, they blew live. the singer was really lame. thought that he was god's gift and whatnot. rockets red glare blew them off of the stage.
however, i'm going to have to say that the catheters are great! the cd packaging is FANTASTIC (the lopsidedness, the colour blur, the cuts in the liner notes etc...). only lame part is the sticker that comes with it explaining that it isn't a factory screw up. but i guess sub pop was getting too many complaints. it's hilarious how it says: WARNING: contains ART! hehe.
i enjoy the beachwood sparks as well.
Never heard the old HHH singer. Well, whoever the new fella is, I like him. The EP they put out awhile ago is fantastic and the new full length ain't too shabby either. (for Canadians)
Definitely worth checking out.
Eh? Seripop...Sub Pop has actually been putting out great records lately. Beachwood Sparks, The Catheters, Hot Hot Heat, Ugly Cassanova, and especially that album by The Shins.
I don't know much about them as a company...but I think they're putting out some fine music right now.
maybe i should mention that i designed those records that they gave me empties of. here i was giving them freebies on covers for big shit bands, and they couldn't even find it in their souls to give me a free copy of the disk. i had to pay collector prices 15 years later.
they were always cheapshit turds. a lot of the early singles they gave me empty sleeves, but no actually copies of the records. i've only managed to obtain copies of a couple of them from ebay in that last six months.
and they made millions.

heh. cool. One of my early posters got a show cancelled and changed UT POLICY BUT BOTH THE BANDS AND MYSELF REAPED HUGE PRESS SO IT WAS COOL (THE BARBEQUED BABY JESUS ONE)."
which band was that?
oh, and i love this-my exgirlfriend had a nice print of this image, well...very similar anyway.sigh...
i've been censored, banned, torn off walls, lettered to the editor, picketed and the subject of classroom debate for years. seattle, like i said, is extremely uptight.
frank, you have no idea how much trouble you caused with your bunny-with-a-syringe poster up there. people freaked. they just didn't tell you, becuase they were to non-confrontational. you have no idea haow stupid things got up there in seattle. they actually made it illegal to sell records with 'dirty lyrics' to minors. basically, at the height of nirvana's 'nevermind', they made illegal to sell. it had to be overturned on constitutional grounds. seattle bands were bringing BILLIONS into the state, yet it was cobntributing charge to sell to under 18 and reform school for kids caught with the music.
no kidding. that actually happened.
it's a blown photocopy of a famous old '60's velvet dayglo poster called 'flaming love'. i always loved this little 1/2" repro i found and i just enlarged the hell out of it. then i added a traditional velevet-painting frame (they all have the same one). then, because it was seattle, i censored it with the type.
