erich werner did these amazing blackouts posters. he formed one of seattle's very ealiest punk bands back in 1975 (the telepaths) and they turned into the blackouts. the band split for san francisco (to survive) and erich split off. the band tried to continue with a move to boston and chicago and then met up with a guy name of al jourgensen and formed ministry. essentially ministry was the blackouts with al singing.
erich ended up living on the streets. when i sent him a copy of my 'instant litter' book (these posters were in it), he sent it back with a note scribbled on it, "i no longer care for material possessions'. i guess he eventually got treatment or something cuz last i heard he was doing all right as a computer programmer or something.
go figger, huh?
