  brian -

no. honestly i didn't know! yeah, it's amazing how a shitty cover can kill a great record like that.

(actually it WAS a great record. great reviews, too. cover won awards! too bad adam didn't have a clue how to sell/ market/ promote/ distribute records. you guys mighta had a chance at the bigtime. great record.)

  it got so bad that dover clip art books put out a book of stock typeface designs called "grunge typefaces". they suck, too. us old 'grunge' designers wouldn't be caught dead using them. same goes for those lousy house industry 'fonts'. yish!

at one poiny house industries contacted me and wanted me to send them my collection of seattle punk posters so they could steal the typeface treatments off of them and sell them as punk/grunge type. double yish!

i didn't know you were in unearth! i did your cd cover (the one with the plane crashed in a graveyard, a big pile of tires, and the band's name in a big mound of cigarette butts). ah, poetry!

Teengenerate Poster - 3B, Bellingham - Art Chantry
art chantrySend art chantry a message 2002-08-06 11:07:10
  thsi one started out as a ww2 joke: teengenerate (a jap punk band) playing at the 3B on pearl harbor day. from that point it just went off the deep end. the type is the same period type used in the nra logo (national recovery administration, not the national rifle association. but nobody can tell the difference, which makes the logo a great joke). the rising sun on metal is an obvious joke (it took 10penny nails to hang it up, wham, wham. as soon it rained, they got so beautifully rusty).

the bullet holes were a last minute inspiration. i have this friend who's an sm freak, deeply into things like auto-erotic asphyxiation and gunplay (imagine a loaded, cocked 45 with a hair trigger slipping up your partner's snatch. good clean fun). anyway, he has these really scary weapons that all look like something outta robocop - black annodized 12-guage shotguns with a folding stock and a laser sight, ak-47's, stainless steel everything). we took all the posters up into the hills and loaded up and spent the afternoon shooting the shit out of the posters. we spent more than $300 on ammo, which was more than the posters cost to make.

the capper is that we shot the posters from the BACKSIDE, so it looked like the bullets were coming out AT you. i love touches like that.

El Vez Poster - The Crocodile, Seattle - Art Chantry
art chantrySend art chantry a message 2002-08-06 10:51:07
  ps - el vez is far far more than 'some dude singing elvis songs in a spanish accent'. he's a poitical radical whose re-written elvis (and other's) songs into big-time cabaret stage shows (he's also gay) to promote radical leftist political (and very brown) causes. crack band, 20 costume changes, brilliant show. amazing. why isn't this world-famous?

he used to be a member of la's the zeros, and for a long time curated at la luz jesus gallery, putting a lot of this art we admire on the map. the guy is savvy as hell.

  best seller? hardly. not when you only have about twenty copies to 'sell'. keep in mind i never did any of this stuff as a 'product', but as a 'poster advertisement'. there was no market for money. people snagged them for free, and that was that. the promoter paid me to do it, paid for the printing. i worked as an 'artist for hire'. so, i've sold very few because i have very few. the ones i sell now, you can't afford. i can't afford, either. it's all that left to last my lifetime.

besides, they don't seem to make the velvet paper anymore. also, i don't anybody crazy enough (like BLT) to try printing on it. he always made me look so good!

Pearl Jam Poster - Fiddlers Green, Denver - Ames Bros

  ok, now howcum this guy has sole credit for all that clip and not ames? what's unique here, the layout? the colors? what about crowley, shouldn't he get pissed (you know he's still out there somewhere, watching, waitng)? when it comes to appropriation, it gets very strange, and that's what makes it interesting. the fact that nicking this image which is all stolen images can create controversy lik this.
