mike kingSend mike king a message :   this is pretty cool, it is surprising how rare late 70s screenprints are for punk shows. i didnt do my first screenprint posters until like '82. and they were mostly of the "post punk" variety   2007-06-29 15:33:57

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   already other gp folks are lining up to post their favorite silkscreen rock poster that pre-dates what i'm talking about. and, yes, silkscreen has been a part of rock and roll since it's inception. in fact i can even show you letterpress psych posters from the early sixties that pre-date the red dog saloon. so, that is not what i'm getting at here.
my point is that very very few of the punk people worked int he silkscreen mode. it was considered arty and precious and too associated with mainstream rock concerts. i remeber doing silkscreen posters for punk bands and they haed them because they looked to professional and too slic ( "allt hat color? you nuts?") punks wanted gritty authenticity and diy. silkscreening wasn't street enough. it was "artrock" or "college student crap". so, silkscreening was not the medium of choice for early punks. it was the cheapest quickest solutions that were the punk printing way to go - xerox, quickprint/offset, hand drawn. 99.9% of all punkposters were in those mediums. sillkscreen didn't really start to show up in any significant numbers until guys like frank and coop and me and a few others started to exploit it in the mid 80's. by then punk posters had become a lot more mainstreamed and were viable "rock posters" or "gig posters".
so, my base point is that early silkscreen punk posters are rare as hell and cool to look at.

art chantrySend art chantry a message :   the earliest silkscreened punk posters i've found have been from seattle (of course. i can dig up here, but not in nyc or sf or la). gorilla rose and (i think ) rio de jenairo were silkscreening posters for the whiz kidz as early as 71/72. carl smool was silkscreening punk posters in seattle as early as 76. later, 78 +79, helena rogers, stu laughlin and babyteeth were slapping up home grown silkscreen art around town for their bands like red dress, student nurse, audio leter and the fags. later, of course, all hell broke loose.
john - can you list any early silkscreen punk artists by name from down sf way?

john seaburySend john seabury a message :   Probably 77 or 78... I got this directly out of Dirk Dirksen's collection in 78. I've had it in a box ever since.
Someone at the Mabuhay office lost the original art to one of my Pyno posters BEFORE it could be printed. Talk about rare.I have no copies or even sketches of that one. It's a royal straight flush of "Pynoman" playing cards, if anyone sees it, I'll pay good money to get it back.But it probably went to the dump.
Anyway, as an apology, Dirk let me rifle through his boxes of posters, and I got to take just about anything I wanted. Dirk was alright, RIP.
