Young MonsterSend Young Monster a message :   i like this thread - its like old-timey GP. all yall haters stand up!   2010-08-04 19:25:09
perkinsSend perkins a message :   Poe with a gun is a cool concept...add the code though, and you have something else entirely - something that begins to transcend the parameters of a normal rock poster. Teaming Rob's mind up with a band that has the vision & willingness to try something outside the box is win-win.   2010-08-04 09:06:44

slaterSend slater a message :   The diagonal type works. It forms a V with the arm and gun.
I can't speak for Rob but seeing the gun and crosshair makes me think about the soldiers "V for Victory" hand symbol... I could be full of it of course, but that's what I see.

talibanSend taliban a message :   this is a good poster. I'm sure that Rob and the band and the masses who will buy it are very upset about the controversy over codes and text and rules. Good job, rob.   2010-08-03 14:27:04

perkinsSend perkins a message :   There are no rules in art except the ones we make.   2010-08-03 12:47:13
evanmarnochSend evanmarnoch a message :   It's kinda delusional to think that a band like the Dead Weather actually needs a gig poster as advertising - especially in Detroit. Yes, gig posters still have a place and function. Just not necessarily in the same way for all bands. Like Tuffy said, the role has evolved.   2010-08-03 12:40:08

VonDadaSend VonDada a message :   Got it. I'm a dick for wanting a legible poster. Nuff said. FYI, love Poe holding a gun, though.   2010-08-03 12:17:04
Zach HobbsSend Zach Hobbs a message :   so you know there is nothing to argue here. we're not arguing about the definition of a poster.   2010-08-03 12:14:16
Zach HobbsSend Zach Hobbs a message :   the poster is like a tshirt. Is a good deal for us artists cause we has a little bit more freedom and all that.   2010-08-03 12:13:04
Zach HobbsSend Zach Hobbs a message :   Hey. heads up. Posters for these bands never ever ever ever ever ever ever hang as promo. That's why we has myspace.   2010-08-03 12:11:59
QuinineSend Quinine a message :   That might be part of the reason why they went w/ something like this also. The people in Detroit probably know when one of Jack's bands is in town and don't rely on posters to inform them. Just a guess.   2010-08-03 12:07:01

VonDadaSend VonDada a message :   Just saying, if I saw this wheatpasted on an abandoned building on Woodward, I wouldn't know WTF it was. But, if it's merch only, then I guess it works. You'd think Jack White would "art direct" him to do something legible for his hometown.   2010-08-03 11:31:19

talibanSend taliban a message :   someone should kick you in the head if you really didn't know that is poe. Christ. It's a great poster - one of many great posters for a band that does not deserve them, in my opinion, but great nonetheless.   2010-08-02 21:08:26

Young MonsterSend Young Monster a message :   If I were a bigger badass then I could just use codes. But Im not. PS - really? The venue? Dont people make posters to say fuck you to things? Like, that is what is cool about music right? Oops, we are in the age of the buildings. Forgot. This poster is fantastic. RJ is ultimate wewhd. Who cares about the venue... brahhh!   2010-08-02 20:13:10
QuinineSend Quinine a message :   Probably should stay outta this but what the hell... Signs, symbols, codes, and arcane/occult imagery have been a part of rock since the late 60's. Bands like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath started it and contemporary bands like TOOL have built an empire around such imagery/messages. I'm not gonna lose any sleep over it. Besides, the poster fuckin' rules.   2010-08-02 17:21:18

lil_tuffySend lil_tuffy a message :   VonDada, shut up. That argument is so old and tired. The role of gig posters has changed/evolved. Yes, they can still promote a show but they are a commodity now and are collectible merch. If the promoter/venue actually paid for this poster you might have a point but seeing that this is MERCH most likely art directed and approved and paid for by the band than I say it's awesome. Go back to writing love letters to Lohan.   2010-08-02 16:36:36
HYNESSend HYNES a message :   Its a cipher, Poe used them all the time he was fascinated by them- take look at the Gold Bug. Most of these Dead weather posters are purely merch.   2010-08-02 16:36:07
VonDadaSend VonDada a message :   Aren't suppose to advertise for the gig at the venue? If I were the venue and this was the poster used to pimp the show, I'd be pissed. This isn't a Rock Poster, it's masturbation.   2010-08-02 16:21:59

perkinsSend perkins a message :   Seeing as how it was Rob that did it, and how the band most assuredly dug the idea & approved it, I'd say it's closer to brilliant than retarded.   2010-08-02 14:58:49
