k/m were obviously cashing in, making some money they never got for the brilliant work they'd done up to that point (they were robbed blind by bands and promoters ad naseum). an ex-beatle comes along and offers them a shitload to hop on their fading bandwagon and what would you do? obviously, you take the gig and crank it out as easy as possible, but still toss in some stuff that you like. that's what i'd do. that's what you'd do, too, in their position.
the lettering is top notch and that flying wing is cool. the chrome hub background is just filler.
give them a little credit. don't blame a cash-in done with some class on a shitty band like wings. k/m were, and still are, the very best. hating this poster because of the band is missing so much.
and, yes, the 70's sucked in tacoma. sucked everywhere else, too. but you little kids who were (at best) barely alive will only see the nostalgia value. dazed and confused, my ass. yes, that's what is was like at the time this poster was made (mid-70's). not exactly an amazing time even in that film. if you think that film depicts an amazing time, then you must had lead an incredibly dull life.
strangely, we had one of the very first tv stations in the country and one of the very first to do color. walt disney even did the logo for it. no joke.
people assume that if a person doesn't live in nyc or la or sf, that they are backwards hicks making a living trapping furs and trading with the indians. it''s really just the opposite. you hipster twerps in major cities merely absorb and claim the stuff that us "backwards hicks" invent and make nice and safe and cool for you. just tha fax, jack,
