  ya know, everybody on this site would do well to go back and really look old psychedelic era posters. they weren't just griffin, mouse and moscosso. there were hundreds of different artists working in as many different styles. the only thing that united them stylistically or philosphically was the fact that they were doing rock posters during a particular period of time - EXACTLY like this gigposters thing. there is very little being done on this site that you can't find close 'heritage' in that period. they kinda did it all first.

i always loved this poster. the 'doubling of the type' idea was evry influential on my thinking as a designer. i first encountered this thing when i was about 15 (1969) and it really stuck with me. i'm happy you folks are as impressed with it as i am. i even used to have a copy. no idea whatever happened to it.

  this is from the 'pj archive'. judging from the quality of the scan, they don't have an original copy either. bet big $$.

one of seattle's even more weird and valuable posters is one for the fstbacks with guns and roses opening. duff used to drum for the fastbacks and wanted to have his new band hang in his old home town. they had lotsa car trouble driving up, i guess. show sucked.

  i guess bigley didn't do that much on this poster - his girl friend did. but who cares. it's all cut out of black construction paper and glued doen with elmers (i saw the mechanical at one point). brilliant weird stuff. tribal madness, just like the u-men. the sonics on voodoo.

Bad Brains Poster - The Metropolis, Seattle - Dennis White

  dennis white was great at quickie cheezball posters. he never signed them or saved them. he even hung up the mechanicals.

probably did more posters than anybody in seattle history, but nobody will ever remember him.

he also signed mr. epp to do a record for his (amd maire masco's) brand new label - pravda. he and maire had just got their biz license and were walking down the street when they saw these geeky kids hanging poster on poles. they'd seen the posters and thought they were cool - mr. epp and the calculations (named after their math teacher). they asked them to put out a record on their brand new label, the kids all got excited and said 'sure!'. then they said they'd have to get instruments and learn how to use them. they didn't have any songs. the poster they'd been hanging were a big joke. the band didn't exist.

that was how mark arm, dale flattum and jo smitty got into the music biz. out of that little encounter came mudhoney, steel pole bathtub, green river, pearl jam and god knows what else.

thanks dennis, whereever you are.
