actually, this IS what streamline looks like if you blow it up...
i really liked the look of shoddy digital line work. it looks so 'antique' (aka - 'old school'). so, i did this look intentionally - bad digital version of an old classic icon/style - sorta like this band and it's music, ya know? there was also a "mr. yuk" version of this poster that was sold as a t-shirt design (it used puke green). they never seemed to figure out i was poking fun at them.
so, it was part of a much larger 'campaign', both for the band/event and for my own sense of humor.
so what WOULD you call it?
i wish you'd lighten up. you are always so nasty to me. when i went back and erased you really stood out as one of the folks who really seem to detest me...
i seem to vaguely remember somebody getting permission from the city to open up rkcndy for awhile. i think that maybe the city even did it themselves, but that seems totally contrary to everything the city did with the rock scene (they constantly tried to close it down).
whenever i see a whole bunch of posters from my old home town pop up out of nowhere up like this, i always have to ask if they are real. seems to me that i would have seen at least ONE of these SOMEWHERE. i collected and documented this stuff feverishly, and i've never heard of rob fletcher, or tractor sex fatality, etc. now that doesn't mean none of it existed, but i also have to question whether some of these bills are prossible. combining murder city devils and the blood brothers at rkcndy (which closed down long before i left seattle) just seems unlikely. also, almost all of these clubs have been closed a long time - some of them a REAL long time, and some of these bands have broken up. now, i have to get an expert in here to verify that indeed all of these time frames could actually overlap. it all seems so improbable to my recollection.
bottom line, rob, get on here and tell us about this stuff. it's great work, and i love it, but i need to hear a voice say that this stuff is real before i take it as authentic gigposters. sorry.
dave - are you still in touch with adam? last time i saw him (maybe 5+ years ago), he was working on a fishing magazine and had little to do with the "music scene". i got the feeling he burned out and walked away from it (like a LOT of people did in seattle).
anyway, if you do still have contact with him, tell him i said 'hi'. i always liked him.
