  none of you folks remember the other "approriation" of the sex pistols/jamie reid design? geez, it was only a few months ago.

somebody took the classic 'god save the queen' 45 cover (silver ink on blue paper) and made it "god save the queens of the stone age". it was a great comment/rip item. well done, excellent joke, very striking. go look for it int he quotsa file.

now, this version seems sort copycatty and stupid and who-gives-a-shit after that other one, especially so soon.

am i the only one who noticed the rip of the rip? if you're gonna do something like that, it had better be dang good and VERY well done. this doesn't rate as much more than a "seen it, been there, done that, ho-hum" response.

  man, i have a hard believeing what a lot of you guys are saying about all this. cracks me up. it's a fucking poster. what's the big deal?

it's also a dang good one. but, certainly not for the reasons of it's original intent, but for what time has done to the style and the culture since. this was a high point of bad 70's rock art (just like boston and journey). it's a dead style and this thing was part of the death knoll in it's own little way.

the craftsmanship is beyond excellent, the concept is weak (like 99% of the posters ever done for rock) but the attitude of the piece was a PERFECT reflection of the moment and the era and that band and what was happening to rock art and american pop culture.

also, that art deco 70's airbrush look (instigated largely by a guy named charles h. white, III- if memory serves) was ruined by the popular california car styling of the day (NOT van art, though it was popular. did you know von dutch did the first mural on a van?) but by a hugely popular company called known as PAPER MOON GRAPHICS. it's forgotten now, but it was the efforts of paper moon and their greeting cards and posters and books and whatnot that sorta maxed out the california airbrush style and turned it into the bad cliche we now hate. the journey/boston/tutenmousekelly/arenarock crap is all tied in with that territory. it's so hopelessy dead that it's now becoming interesting again. i predict a re-birth of airbrush crap in the near future.

  ... and "airbrushed van art" is bad, right?

i'll write that down.

no one's argueing. we're discussing an interesting classic old poster. we're analyzing it. not argueing.

some people are just making jokes, though. don't be confused by that.

  bill graham, wings, all the same in my book. time to cash in.

this is critisized for the band and for the amazing , but uninspired chrome work. seems like a lame crit to me. i think this is great classic poster. it's even classic in unitentional ways.

i think the chrome HAD to be uniform, or it wouldn't look like chrome. if every hubcap had different image, it would look like some sort of disco mirror, or even a comic strip. they had to uniform to complete the illusion. think about it.
