good eye. ed learned to do that style on a freelance project for me. the client (mudhoney) wanted that "old jazz cover look" of david stone martin. so i showed ed the guy's work, and showed him easrly warhol. then i hooked him wup with nathan gluck (who was andy's staff designer back in the 1950's) and nathan showed how it was done properly. ed then went out and nailed the style perfectly. the result was the "piece of cake" cover for mudhoney.
within 2 years he was early healthy six figures as an illustrator. amazing guy, ol' ed is.
lisa designed the bleach cover and supefuzz big muff and was (for a time) art director of the rocket and at sub pop. she's the one who did nirvana's logo. she finally quit when nobody at sub pop woulf pay her invoices - they racked up quite an outstanding balance. after that , the only guy in town dumb enough to work for them on credit was me, and that's how i got involved doing stuff with subpop. by default and by stupidity.
that tesla coil in the lower left was about 30 feet tall - and the lightning bolts shot about 150 feet into the heavens. traffic came to a standstill on the alaskan viaduct because these damned lightning bolts came shooting up alongside seemingly out of nowhere.
they also had a machine that threw cockroches into the crowd. it malfunctioned when the roaches got all squshy and clogged the sprayer.
i also saw a machine with a giant flamethrower go out of control and spray the audience with kerosene. by some miracle it didn't ignite - even the it was sprking at the time.
