Heaters Poster - The Old Mill Tavern, Seattle - Jim Sorenson

  this band later had to change their name to 'the heats'(another LA band had the other name). for awhile (late 70's) they were the hottest band in the northwest - playing a sort of punk/power pop. they were great, actually. never went anywhere.

jim sorenson, the guy who who designed this, is a screen printer in the northwest. he did most of the pearl jam tshirts and also is the guy who figured out how to do water-transfer decals for us at estrus. he's the guy that does all of coop's decals. name of his biz is 'mysterion press'. good guy. a lot of the nw poster guys used to work for him (like justin hampton).

Time Machine Poster - Hudson Pointe, Port Townshend

  these guys were "paul bearer and the hearsemen" (remember that old poster i put up?) when psych hit the nw, a lot of bands tried to adapt. some moved to california and ended up in some famous bands (moby grape, grateful dead, the mothers, eyc.) but most of them (like these guys) faded away.

the hard to read type was colored in with red making pen. another common "enhancement' technique back then.

Woody Carr & The Entertainers Poster - Papa Earles, Port Townshend

  the fuzzy edge was dayglo pink spraypaint. it was common to touch up your posters back then to make them more exciting.

woody carr had a great surf band and a rockabilly band before that. soon after this period (on the poster) he became pretty much a cocktail lounge singer. hard times...

Fats Domino Poster - University of Puget Sound Field House, Tacoma

  it's full color. it's on the last page of the showcard section of the art of rock. you can see it for yourself. that old showcard of the beatles with the green fullbleed split fountain was mine, too.

this one was around 18X26 or there abouts, if my memory serves me. the guy i got it from found it were it had slipped behind the counter of an old drug store he was demolishing.

the real secret history of american graphic design is the story of the sign painters. those guys are true enheralded geniuses.

  this is a b&w photostat of a full-color vintage poster i used to own. 'cps' is now 'ups' (for those who live in the nw). it's so old that chuck berry has low billing and had just released "roll over beethoven".

i loaned it (and a shitload of others) to paul grushkin back in the mid-80's to photograph for his first poster book (art of rock). it's in there, along with a mess of other vintage stuff i sent him - included one of those early beatle posters. he never returned any of it. i pressured him for a long time and i finally managed to get him on the phone and all he would say is "they're gone". no apology, no acknowledgement that anything was amiss. nothing. ever.

in the mid-90's, when i was selling off the dismal remains of my vintage poster collection, i had several collectors tell me they'd happily have paid between $8-10,000 for this poster. one guy said he would have gone as high as $12,000.

for all you people who thought i was being a real jerk to paul and being unecessarily harsh in my dealings with him, i hope you now have a slightly better appreciation for why. i also want you to there are many many other collectors and artists out there who have similar feelings about him.

  this guy - perris - did all of these great murals in the belltown part of seattle back in the early ninties. i think dvelopers have already demolished all of them.
