heads of state, totally stealing my thunder once again.
Holy shit. And to think I almost didn't upload this poster to GP. I may have even prevented mass fraudulent valuation of old punk flyers! Of course, now I can't sell my old Sonic Youth posters for thousands of dollars. Damn.
As an aside, there is a huge write-up of the 1/8/78 SP show at Sex Pistols At Randy's Rodeo (Introduction)
I know nobody claimed that adding the year was definitive as identifying it as a fraud but I just wanted to add that adding the year to gig posters has been done for a long time. The Kaleidoscope put the year on many of their posters in 1968. And Gunther Kieser was putting the year on his posters as far back as 1953.
The Europeans like putting the year on there - not so much a North American thing.
