Bingo! Living in Austin now and growing up in Oklahoma these posters pretty much spell out what life on the range was like then. Look at Wayne's that says "the freak out is here." Perfect description of that scene. Good times, good times...
I bet I could find out what happened to all those guys. Robert, who played bass in Ancient Chinese Penis, was in Fuckface I think. I still have friends who kept up with him. He had close to 100 worker shirts with the name "dick" on them. We always wonder why they thought Ancient Chinese Penis was an un marketable name but changing it to Fuckface was a better carrer move. ACP did an AWESOME cover of "we're not gonna take it" in my front room right before they fucked the place up. Billy Goat played there two with their cocks out as usual.
Yup. They all are and they are on THICK art paper. The kind we used to get sheets of acid on. Very à propos if you think about it. I got one sent to me rolled up and there is so much ink on it that it cracks when unrolling. I got these suckers all under glass now... I'm a Flaming Lips dork. I have some of Lyman Hardy's old stuff I'm gonna post eventually and a whole pile of other random people's work. These one's of Wayne's and Frank's two early pieces are my prizes though.
I've been meaning to get off my ass and post a bunch of stuff I have and last night I spent ALOOONG time shoting pics and making jpegs. I've got five of Wayne's big ass posters like this and they are so cool. About 4 ft by 3 ft and as day glo as they look here. His registration is shit and it makes them even cooler. There's a little blue and white poster posted from a tour long time ago and you can barely read it it's printed so bad. The Lips did a few drugs back in the day...
This is suposedly one of Coop's very first posters. He signed it Cooper on this one but not on the orange one I posted. i got these from a friend who went to high school with him in Oklahoma and used to roadie for the Lips. He's in a aband called Wood Pussy out in LA now. Spin voted them one of the top 5 worst bands in america a while back.
Hey Nolen this was actually silkscreened on cardboard. My first venture in printing. I spent a few months just designing with Jason Austin then this was the first one where I said "let's print on something besides paper" The cardboard fit the punk rock thing perfect. this is the poster I said was done 100% on the computer and was just as punk as the bikini kill poster that started all the shit talk on computers. If you look close you can see Henry sans many tattoos, Tim Kerr, Dez from Black Flag, Paul Leary, that's Ian McKay skating top right, the kid looking up at the mannequin legs is David Wm, Sims from Jesus Lizard (about 13) and right above the "rk" in works is David Yow holding up the surfer. PhotoBill had some awesome pics at this show. All that dirt and shit is actually from the poison 13 reunion show for Sound Exchanges anniversary last year. Tim Kerr spit beer and stomped all over our posters. This one says "punks fight because they can't dance" way down on the bottom right. Frank you were prolly at everyone of these shows. Everything posted under Studio 709 is me (Geoff from factor27) and Jason Austin. Didn't feel right posting it as factor27 stuff.
Hey Nolen you know Fuckface? The same one from Frisco? They used to be called Ancient Chineese Penis and were from Norman OK. They sucked but their live show was great. They played a house party once and an entire wall got wiped out when the pit went awry. All rock!
