tastyfreshSend tastyfresh a message :   Hey I resent those remarks, I've been listening to Phish for 15+ years and thanks to the Phish poster collecting community I have been turned onto the greater poster scene in general. Thanks to Phish, I have been introduced to many many great poster artists, a lot of whom who have never done a poster for the band. Expressobeans wouldn't be what it is today without the Phish poster collectin community. Nowadays, non-phish posters outnumber phish posters in my collection at least 15 to 1.   2004-09-17 08:55:43

Plus I have no idea who you are.

Don't rush it. I will point out any error in grammar.

CPOSend CPO a message :   For a website full of "artistic" types, some of you sure come off as close-minded.
In addition, Richie, I assume since you don't know how to spell bourgeoisie, that you are likewise clueless about its definition.
The bourgeoisie is one of the wealthy classes into which a capitalist society is typically divided. You may dislike this poster (as do I) and you may dislike Phish, but by grouping Phish in this category you have exposed your ignorance twice in less than 11 words and your immaturity in less than 11 posts! Nice work! Now go home, Mommy's calling you.

I dunno if you noticed, but Phish isn't really the most popular band amongst this community.

morstSend morst a message :   BY THE WAY- To my knowlege this was never used for promo (note the absense of ticket price and ticket office info) and is consequently not really a GIGPOSTER in the strict sense used here. It was sold at the concert as a commemorative, and offered later by the band's mail order merchandise company.   2004-09-15 18:30:15
morstSend morst a message :   Dag nabbit, I can't edit my comments?!
The most highly sought-after Pollock pieces are all linoleum block prints, not screens.
Pollock's "Kabuki" is a silkscreen, but due to the edition size, does not seem to rock the secondary market like the smaller editions of handpressed ones. FYI, Jim has not used his old bookbinding press in some time, since he converted a heidelberg press to solar power. see

morstSend morst a message :   naw don't worry, Frank, This is not one of the sacred "handpulled" serigraphs by Jim Pollock.
This one sold for $15 at the shows and from Dry Goods for several months afterwards. Total number printed is unknown (to the expressobeans community) but what we know is compiled here:
It was tending towards a hundred bux until the bootlegger "flooded the market"?? (don't really know how many boots got out, but I don't think more than a dozen or so)
now it's more like 50-80 I would guess. . .
The Atlanta poster by the same artist from the same tour sold out more rapidly, and has always been slightly harder to find. It pictures a Gorilla in a dress with a wig.
I'll take "Transvestite Animals" for $15 please Frank!

delightful. thanks for your salient insight. you got quite the artistic eye, RG!
uh, again if I could edit my post, I would clarify that there are three arminski Phish pieces and one DMB piece that were involved in the lawsuit.

morstSend morst a message :   and to answer the question YES Phish's staff did (along with DAVE MATTHEWS BAND management) bring legal action against mark arminski for three posters which he did which had been commissioned by the promoter (belkin) in 1994 and 1995. DMB and Phish "won" the settlement and neither side is supposed to discuss it.
Essentially it boiled down to phish having a problem with mark selling the prints and the courts saw it their way, which sucked for mark, who was just trying to put food on his table.

morstSend morst a message :   note- to see the difference between the fake and real ones, you would need a magnifying glass, not a very strong one, 8x photo loupes are sufficient.   2004-09-14 21:47:37
RichieGoodtimesSend RichieGoodtimes a message :   Oh don't wanna get stuck with a bootleg of this. Man...that would suck.   2004-09-14 21:47:34
morstSend morst a message :   it sold out in about 1996, although bootlegs were available for a time, on eBay until phish's legal team stopped them. Ya see, phish carefully protects their copyrights and trademarks so that they can keep the market free of forgeries.
By the way, to identify the fakes, look at the white lettering on black at the bottom. The real ones are plain white, the fakes are a dotscreen that you can see.
I am not fully convinced that copyright law is good for art or music (anyone ever listened to DJ Dangermouse's infringing remix of Jay-Z plus the Beatles? It's very good and worth allowing to exist, if perhaps not to be sold). Despite this, Phish has the right to do stuff that makes 'em look mean. Like protect their interests. If that makes 'em SHIT then you got some big hole there to pass that.
