maybe i should mention that i designed those records that they gave me empties of. here i was giving them freebies on covers for big shit bands, and they couldn't even find it in their souls to give me a free copy of the disk. i had to pay collector prices 15 years later.
they were always cheapshit turds. a lot of the early singles they gave me empty sleeves, but no actually copies of the records. i've only managed to obtain copies of a couple of them from ebay in that last six months.
i've been censored, banned, torn off walls, lettered to the editor, picketed and the subject of classroom debate for years. seattle, like i said, is extremely uptight.
frank, you have no idea how much trouble you caused with your bunny-with-a-syringe poster up there. people freaked. they just didn't tell you, becuase they were to non-confrontational. you have no idea haow stupid things got up there in seattle. they actually made it illegal to sell records with 'dirty lyrics' to minors. basically, at the height of nirvana's 'nevermind', they made illegal to sell. it had to be overturned on constitutional grounds. seattle bands were bringing BILLIONS into the state, yet it was cobntributing charge to sell to under 18 and reform school for kids caught with the music.
it's a blown photocopy of a famous old '60's velvet dayglo poster called 'flaming love'. i always loved this little 1/2" repro i found and i just enlarged the hell out of it. then i added a traditional velevet-painting frame (they all have the same one). then, because it was seattle, i censored it with the type.
