  i was at this show. it wasn't very good. this venue had no idea what they had booked when they brought these guys in. all the projection equip collapsed, it was hot as hell and they opened up the doors to the street - in ballard - and it was the butthole surfers! really fucked up. lotta fighting in the crowd. baaaaad vibes all around. even gibby was apologizing.

and they didn't even have the nerve to actually print up the name!

  you miss my point entirely. i have cool jazz and folky posters in silkscreen that go back to the 20's so what?

i'm talking about early silkscreen punk posters. they are a strange and cool thing. ithat's all i gotta say here.

devour at will.

  already other gp folks are lining up to post their favorite silkscreen rock poster that pre-dates what i'm talking about. and, yes, silkscreen has been a part of rock and roll since it's inception. in fact i can even show you letterpress psych posters from the early sixties that pre-date the red dog saloon. so, that is not what i'm getting at here.

my point is that very very few of the punk people worked int he silkscreen mode. it was considered arty and precious and too associated with mainstream rock concerts. i remeber doing silkscreen posters for punk bands and they haed them because they looked to professional and too slic ( "allt hat color? you nuts?") punks wanted gritty authenticity and diy. silkscreening wasn't street enough. it was "artrock" or "college student crap". so, silkscreening was not the medium of choice for early punks. it was the cheapest quickest solutions that were the punk printing way to go - xerox, quickprint/offset, hand drawn. 99.9% of all punkposters were in those mediums. sillkscreen didn't really start to show up in any significant numbers until guys like frank and coop and me and a few others started to exploit it in the mid 80's. by then punk posters had become a lot more mainstreamed and were viable "rock posters" or "gig posters".

so, my base point is that early silkscreen punk posters are rare as hell and cool to look at.
