I did a poster for them in about '93. I went to the show, it was terrible. One of their ensamble got pierced on stage, they made a big deal out of it. Oooooooo! How cutting edge. Piercing. Maybe they were far out in '86, but by '93 the schtick was tired, and the music was bad.
I don't think lifting the same piece of "found art" constitutes any more of a rip off than the original lift. Graphically I like this one better than the Firehouse version. Look a all the Craphound stuff on this site, who gets credit for that?
