thanks guys* my mission in life is to make ewing happy. i was actually on thera-flu when i did this one. it worked somehow. i'd actually like to do a screened version of this but for a different act ( pedalini, i'll trade you for one of those).
this poster is fascinating on too many levels. i'm beyond curious what year this show was.
what i can see:
*'crime' rip-off: that's obvious. but...if it happened early enough in the 80s atleast it was someone who had some knowledge of what was happening in san francisco. i'm not defendending a blatent theft.....it's just a historical curiousity. the 'punk' scene was so minute then they might have had approval to 'use' the image. dunno.
definetely 'early' 80s: iggy ( pre-sober???) social distortion ( pre-skeleton hand drawn logo. 'prison bound'? not 'mommy's little monsters' or 'another state of mind'?)....then the 'kroq' logo (pre-cones) says alot.
my take: this is one of the first 'mainstream' punk flyers in los angeles.
