Telepaths Poster - IOOF Hall, Seattle - Tomtata du Plenty

  this is a poster by tomata du plenty. he was the mainstay pointman in ze whiz kidz. in 72 he (and gorilla rose) moved to new york, got involved with the dolls, the stillettos, the harlots, cbgb's, etc. etc.at the very very beginning of ny punk (he actually created some of the looks for those outfits. legend has it he was the one who created the drag look for the dolls). he moved back to seattle in about 75-76 and formed a band called the tupperwares. he then put on what may be the earliest classic punk shows in seattle (the t.t.oh! show was 1975, but got cancelled. the tmt show was the initial offering as a result). the interesting thing is that he did this poster for the tmt show, and - as far as i can tell - this is the first classic diy punkrock/trash poster i've ever found. everything else seems to be sort of a standard poster/showcard informational poster with a picture of the band/ date/time/place etc. this is simply the earliest 'classic' trash diy punk poster i've ever found. it actually pre-dates the first sex pistols show by over 6 months.

so, anyway, he moved to la and changed the name of the band to the screamers (dragging along seattle kid penelope houston). that famous image of the screamers by gary panter is a portrait of ol' tomata. you can see tomata on that franko poster for the screamers at the bird. he's the main guy.

if anybody can find an earlier classic punk style poster, i'd love to see it. i know destroy all monsters was producing stuff in detroit that was very similar, but did it pre-date tomata?

Negative Trend Poster - The Bird, Seattle - Franko (Frank Edie)

  this poster changed my life. when i saw this thing on the wall, i had to stop in my tracks and stare at it for a long time. i took it home and put it on my wall and continued to look at it for weeks. i'd never seen anything remotely like it (outside of textbooks on dada). it completely blew me away.

franko was a painter guy in seattle who did work for roger husbands who opened the first punk club in seattle (the bird). all of franko's work is the starting point of seattle punk/grunge design. without his style (note his instinctive use of type - ostentatious but not unpreposessing...) posters in seattle might have gone toward the psych/illustrative style of austin or who knows?

franko's posters were all from 1978. after that he quit.

Leaving Trains Poster - The Central Tavern, Seattle - Jesse Marinoff Reyes

  this is the poster for that famous show where nirvana opened and nobody showed up until bood circus went on. the band just sat down and drank beer instead of playing.

nobody ever thought they amount to anything. it was a real shock to seattle when they hit the charts. really.
