Yup it's that Hank. I know he likes the whole skull and flames aesthetic but this speaks Hank III (country version) to me more than any of the other posters I've seen. This was also at Gruene Hall which is a historical dance hall. This is by far my favorite Hank III poster and I'm not just saying that because my partner did it :-p
They are great. I just posted three from my collection. They were all so fucked up and creepy. I wish I could have been around Austin when they were being posted. Those and the Big Boys/Dicks posters. Must have flipped the right wing out. I'm not that brave with my imagery
Yup. My partner Paul did the lettering and same design for the first version. They ran out and asked us to make a new poster. We gave them a few choices and they said "the girls have to be on the poster" so we scored some really cool offsets on silver metallic paper. Got them cheap too. like 30¢ a sheet. These girls will knock you on your ass. Go see them any chance you get. As heavy and legit as any one out there. They are super cool too. Nila rocks!
Nope for me it was because it was being ruined. If Lovejoy's had been the venue and it had been 15 years ago then it would have been doing it's job. Lovejoy's wasn't even opened when this was printed. It could have been displayed without stapling it to a leaky ceiling. I'm all for the poster getting posted and doing the job when the show is happening but fifteen years after the fact have some respect for the art. This is a classic piece and prolly very few in circulation. Bonehead move if you ask me.
