Dead Kennedys | Fall of Canada Tour 1984 Poster

When Jello Biafra and the Dead Kennedys were in their ’80s prime, they were a magnificent sight to behold. And behold I did when the San Francisco punk troublemakers...

The Who | 1982 Tour Promo Poster

Insert your own 'Who Sell Out' joke here. I'm sure they've heard them all before. And deserved to, based on this hilariously tacky beer-sponsorship poster for their 1982 Tour....

Tom Waits | Mule Variations Double-Sided Promo Poster

Of the hundreds of music and film posters in my collection, this is one of my favourites. Partly because I'm a huge Tom Waits fan — who isn't? —...

Rickie Lee Jones | Vintage Pirates Promo Poster

Usher | All About U: Ultra-Rare Advance Promo Box

Comedy and tragedy can be two sides of the same coin. This post-apocalyptic promo poster for KISS’s 1984 album Animalize illustrates that quite succinctly, I would say. On the...

Iggy Pop | 1978 German Tour Poster

I’d love to tell you that this poster is a memento of that time I saw Iggy Pop in Germany way back in the ’70s. But that would be...
