I think Jeff's comment is really valid about anyone coming to check out a band. One of the worst things to develop in the punk scene was the really stupid boneheaded elitism and reverse bashing that went on. It ruined shows in Chicago.
I dig it. Since Punk rock made me listen to music differently, It also, in combination with Dada and Expressionist/Raw art made me look at the visual world differently. I really like stuff that is off the beaten path in every way. I think what is kind of cool about these posters is the sort of "freeness" or lack of caring what others think, just cranking it out. Some are more succesful than others, for sure. the graffiti art that a lot of artists have used in the last decade, esp the lettering , just stops me in my tracks. I like it even if I CANT read it. But then, again, Im kind of goofy.
