this was designed by larry reid. he did a lot of nw punk stuff.
this was big black's final show. it was held in an fully restored antique steam plant that was a national historical sight. the sound echoed off polished brass boilers and pipes and brick walls and it split your eardrums like nothing i've ever heard. at the end they smashed their gear, and that was the end of big black. awesome scary show.
people have said a lot of bad things about jason on this site, but i've always thought his work was terrific. i remember he sent me a xerox shhet of his work (along with lyman hardy and lindsey kuhn's work) when i worked at the rocket. the stuff blew me away. i think those cruddy little b&w xerox's were a big influence on jeff kleinsmith, also (he was my assistance at the time and snagged those sample sheets,too.) i wish i could still make my work look this good. we kept trying to figure out just how that scrappy density was achieved...
like i pointed out, 'tooth' is dale flattum. he's that insane bassist from steel pole bathtub. he also used to be in mr. epp and the calculations, but that's another story.
you really should see a more extensive display of his artwork. are you familar with 'milk cult' stuff? he did most of that, i believe. i met him through owen connell (whom i believe may have some posters here). owen is the artsit who did my (extensive) tattoos. anyway, his painting style and dale's style are very close and they collaborate on craziness.
