art chantrySend art chantry a message :   er, the name of the band was FEAST,, not FEATS. no spell check or editing on this area, it seems.   2003-04-01 10:05:36
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   jane higgins was the bassist in feats, who had jonathan poneman in it toward the end. she was married to the guitarist or whatever. she actually made her money designing porn video packaging. she split for los angeles, and i lost track of her.
plantweed - if you talk to linda owens, please tell her i said hi, and have her contact me, ok? i'd really love to hear from her!

Jeff KleinsmithSend Jeff Kleinsmith a message :   Me too! I learned more in my first month at The Rocket than I learned in two years at U of O - and all I did was make coffee and shoot stats!
Linda Owens also did Catbutt and Das Damen.
Did Jane Higgins ever work at The Rocket? How did she come to work for Sub Pop?

brian kroekerSend brian kroeker a message :   the screaming life cover was great... really represented the bands sound at the time.   2003-04-01 09:18:04
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   plantweed - another name on old sub pop record covers you need to look for is linda owens. she was one of the folks who kick-started that look for the label in a big way. she got burned out early and moved to indonesia (go figger).
she was from the rocket, too. some of the covers she did we green rivers' 'rehab doll' and soundgarden's 'screaming life'.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   sometimes i go back and look at old issues and see people who started there and it still blows me away. great people, great talents, amazing names. i'm extremely proud to have been associated with such a sleazy rag of such merit.   2003-04-01 09:06:57
PlantweedSend Plantweed a message :   Some of us still care about people like Mike Dougan, Denny Eichhorn, Blanchard, Zingarelli, Ashley ~, etc.   2003-04-01 09:04:37
PlantweedSend Plantweed a message :   I went out of my way to look for Art's, Lisa's, and Jane Higgins' names on Seattle records of the time.   2003-04-01 09:02:57
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   actually, i have tried pushing that idea. sadly, the publishing world has a nyc myopia - a true provincialism - that sayz that if it wasn't from ny (especially in the publishing arts) or maybe san francisco, then it wasn't innovative or interesting. i've tried getting every magazine and publisher and historian i know to just look at the rocket, but they won't bother. jsut to get julie lasky to include the rocket as a chapter in my own book was a chore. i had to hardcore sell her on it before whe would do it. ny people think it's a small regional story of no interest to anybody in the 'big time'. their loss, i figure.
i once made a list of the amazing (now famous) designers, illustrators, writers, editors, photographers, cartoonists, etc. etc. that passed through the rocket and i had to quit at 150 names. burned out my barain cells to do it, too. yet, it was still just the tip of an iceberg.

Jeff KleinsmithSend Jeff Kleinsmith a message :   In college when I was studying design at the University Of Oregon Lisa was the art director at the Rocket. She was a big influence on the early stuff I was doing. I still have every issue going all the way back to 1987. I have multiple copies from the four years that i worked there.
Art, ever think of doing a book about The Rocket? Seems like, unlike any other publication (besides maybe Push Pin) so many talented folks worked there and have gone on to do pretty amazing things. You know the hisory much better than I but everything from Bruce Pavitt's 'Subterrannean Pop' column (genesis of Sub Pop Records) to Linda Barry, you, Hank Trotter, me, Bob Newman, Grant Alden (No Depression), Matt Groening, Jesse Reyes, Helene Silverman... I mean, Jesus, the list is impressive and there are are MANY more. It'd be a pretty interesting article if not a book.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   just checking. now, everytime i put up an old poster i'm going to be asking myself, "did jeff do this?" it's going to drive me nuts. like i also have a hell of a time spotting dennis white (he did so many) and lisa orth's because they had that 'rocket style' so ingrained and down pat. so did you with a lot of your early stuff. and none of you three ever signed anything.
but there are little tricks here that you used to use in the old days - like those black bars with type. that used to be all over your old student portfolio. and you'd actually have done exactly that with the eye, or maybe left it more exposed. and then there's the one 'distressed' unit (like the "w" on the walkabouts flyer). but, i think you'd have known to put a hyphen in the fall-outs name....

Jeff KleinsmithSend Jeff Kleinsmith a message :   Nope.
I'm surprised that you can't tell it's me on even these early ones. There are telltale tricks that I still employ to this day. On this one, I wouldn't have put clean type in a bar like that. I wouldn't have covered the one straring eye and I wouldn't have used the type that's at the bottom like that.
