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.
richie* sorry, there wasn't a scandle ( as far as i kno). i was just hoping there would be. i was just hoping that this poster would piss-off 'the far left' for having psuedo-nazi imagery and it would piss-off the 's.c. nazi's' for making them look like a bunch of mindless bunny-automitons ( and all the good bunnies in between would attend the show).
got these in. and they look amazing! only one minor 'fuck-up' and that was my mistake. richie did some truely great work. i'm a little disapointed that i didn't hear about a santa cruz 'nazi scandle'but...'you can't offend all the people all of the time'.
as for poster sales: w/ the exception of the ones already mentioned i'm taking the rest to flatstock2 and figuring it out there. if demand is good....'fascist bunny 2: electric frankaloo'.
(or richie* we could finally get a working on the 'cochina: urban pixie of the apocolypse' poster).
kevin* get youself to a doctor. chicken pox as an adult can really mess you up. ( i'm one of the lucky few that can't build up an immunity to it, stupid white blood cells i guess. got it 3times as a kid).
