it's a very politically charged band, perhaps even vitriolic - ala early dead kennedys - the wes wilson cue is a good one in that the original poster, simply an anti-vietnam image didnt justify the use of the icon. I wanted to put it into the context of a band whose sentiments are aligned with the satire of the image. sure koziks used it, uncle charlie and a bunch of other artists - i simply was recouping wilsons and giving it a contemporary context and matching it with a band i thought that fit.
this is a homage to an early Wes Wilson poster. done by a friend of mine - it's good to see he's putting his posters up. He does some really cool shit. Now if I could just convince him to start silk screening.
do you understand he is making a metaphor? nazi with red white and blue...its not pro nazi in my mind...he is trying to make a point...and then the happy face is just sorta laughing about even making the point.
i am loading a bowl for you. ;) :smoking:
