Low Flying Owls Poster - Rocket Bar - Art Chantry
art chantrySend art chantry a message 2007-06-27 11:52:39
  really? geez, nobody ever tells me nothin'. first i've heard of it.

poster sux, now. thanx a lot, dood!

in fact several people have told me the show rocked. fuck if i care. any bands called "low flying owls' or "valiant thor(r)" or "tone rodents", i just wouldn't ever bother to check out. sounds too silly.

no, it's a real poster that was done as an experiemnt in split fountains (three of them). i was experimetning collaging old stamps i found. the flying saucer is a common motif in my stuff (they pop up everywhere). the type was clipped out letter by letter from those little tab dividers we used to use in our three-ring binders in high school back in the sixties. and, yes, it does look like a dick.

Graham Parker Poster - Sapphire Supper Club, Orlando - Stainboy

  ultimate 1970's generic style. there must have been hundreds of agency/designers/studios/sign shops working in this style throughout most of the 1970's. this one is so perfectly awful that it's aged into into being great. but never mistake it as a anyone's original cool stylistic innovation. it's generic as hell, right down to the high-contrast drawing and the rounded corners. even parker's logo is hopelessly generic - i must have done a hundred logos that looked just like it in the years before his record company did this logo. and i was a stupid amateur student type fishing around and copying what was around me. this lettering is done with a rapidograph pen (a heavy nib) and circle templates with straightedges.

i love it.

  stark was one of the very best. he was also one of the few who seemed to have some sort of training, which made his work stand out. his stuff always seemed so slick and professional compared to most all of the rest.

  john -

there were a number of folks dabbling with silkscreen back in those that i've found. but, it's still a very item to find - any silkscreen print/punk poster. very very cool.

what do you figger the date is on this? 77? is this thing 30 years old?!?

  what did they do? go backstage and put on cowboy hats and then come back out as rank and file?

Roky Erickson And The Explosives Poster - The Stone, San Francisco
art chantrySend art chantry a message 2007-06-26 16:56:20
  wow, this is pretty great and awful at the same time! i remeber using those cheapo quickprint places (usually owned by some old beater dude who just wanted the money - fast) that would knock out a bunch of these crappy offset posters and through a few inks in the fountain to make it look better that it probably had a right to be. these have become a sort of extinct style of poster now. but, they used to be the most common - cuz they were so dang cheap.

this is cool. i wish i owned it. i'd frame it.
