  so ANYway. These last four items are a response to Art's note about wanting to see some early stuff. In my recent unpacking of ten tons of garbage from yesteryear, I also have a bbunch of my first posters. The blind and narrow fool I was, I actually painted or cut colored paper and glued or drew or colored on acetate or cel-painted my originals with overlays for the text crudely done in early Corel or some shite and the club paid like a buck a piece for about twenty color copies and we posted them around Delmar in St. Loser and that was about it. These paosters were all done in, say, 1994? Earlier? '95?
We would do a week's calendar at the bottom and sometimes a major artist for the main picture and three or four other artists would rotate. So these are some of those. I did this wasy because i knew nothing of printing or whatever else so the only solution I saw was original art for each one. How would that suit your to construct a piece like this ever time? It is fun to look back at early posters ans see who was playing back then. Early Grifters shows. Low's first album. There's one I didn't get to finish and may post later, incomplete for an English band that I had heard before their album came out. They were booked at Cicero's basement bar. it holds about a hundred people. But they had to cancel the show because they were called Oasis and a week before the show they became the biggest band in the world. I was looking forward to that show. Shit.

So ANYway.

I'll have Clay take these down in a little while but they're fun to look at for a minute.

  I'll ask Clay to take these off in a month or something. Just thought I'd slap them up for a bit.

  Seripop,

Merci, petit chou. Vous êtes beau et doué et odeur du plus fin des fromages doux, des pétales roses, et des vieilles poésies.

  HAR HAR HAR! Some pointless information:
•Steve Branes and I are both retards from st. louis.
•Art is right. There aren't any fucking posters outside the loop on Delmar and even the ones there are sporadic. I haven';t been back but I can't imagine anythinng has changed. When we / I postered for Cicero's, a legendary postage stamp of a bar that every great band played, they didn't flyer the town for shit. I can see why you'd nnot see any posters around, even if they hung them. Why is that? Why hasn't it changed? St. Louser is just like that. It's too bad but true.
•Banes doesn't give two shits what any of you have to say about this poster.Good or bad, it's just a riling image for a riling couple bands . It looks cool and it's nno more offensive than two little kids shooting cartoon heroin on the short bus with a noose held onto by a teddy bear wearing bondage gear ( my image. don't steal it). It's a hot and slutty littel piece of filth. I draw porn for money so i don't mind. The sepia makes it safe for grandma.
•155 comments. Har har har.
•Those who actually HAVE sex sometimes aren't so mortifed. i was having this for dinner just the other night. it brings back memories.
•These do get printed and posted and are cost effective and serve their purposes and give unfunded bands and unfunded poster 'designers' an outlet.
•Never listen to anything i say.
•Hi, Chloe.
