Bad Brains

Sunday, January 30th, 2011
If there is any band as mighty as Black Flag it is the Bad Brains. The Bad Brains music is the best in the world IMO. I've been fortunate to see them twice but unfortunatly none of their early years gigs, not that the Bad Brains aren't incredible still to this day but they were so young then and so very explosive physically! I can only imagine how mind boggling it would of been to see them for the first time in the late 70's! Bands can inspire people in different ways, for example Kiss may inspire you to be famous or Metallica may inspire you to be a guitar player and Bad Brains would inspire you to create incredible music.

The 3D-Invisibles

Saturday, January 29th, 2011
One of the great bands to come out of Detroit! I was not into their music back in the day and so I did not attend any of their early gigs Unfortunatly.  The 3D-Invisibles put out some of the best flyers! Aside from the Pettibon flyers the 3D's are my favorite and further more the 3D's have the best album art! The Flyers they put out in the 80's in Detroit were on thick colored stock and they often would print on both sides. [nggallery id=9] Read More

My Punk Flyers – 1980′s

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011
Here is my flyer collection from the 80's. These flyers along with other SST posters, blacklight posters, drawings and graffiti covered my bedroom walls thru the 80's. In the process of trying to locate my old ticket stubs to add with my new collection from the past couple years, I came across my old flyer collection. So I spent the early afternoon today scanning images. With the exception of the Black Flag flyers from California shows, these flyers are from the Detroit area shows from the mid to late 1980's which I was fortunate enough to see a few of these gems. These flyers are for some incredible and classic shows that I would pay big dough… Read More

D.O.A. Flyers

Thursday, January 20th, 2011
D.O.A. Flyers D.O.A. in my opinion is one of the greatest punk bands!  It was DOA's music that got me into Punk!  Their track "Fuck You" from Bloodied but Unbowed was the very first Hardcore Punk song I had ever heard. I was like 13 at the time and I had never heard any band use lyrics like that in a song, nor did I think it was even legal to do so and the music was so fast, I was so hooked after that!  I've been fortunate enough to see DOA twice, once in the 80's at Traxx, Detroit and a second time in the 90's within the Shelter @ St. Andrews Hall, Detroit. It was tough being a punk at those ages back then in suburbia Michigan but thats… Read More
