Ralph Stollenwerf, of Awesome dudes Screen printing was visited this weekend by none other than Shepard Fairey…
From Ralph’s Site–
“We had a very exciting day last Friday, when Shepard Fairey and his crew came by the print shop to put up a mural on the outside of our building, it’s huge! about 11ft high x 23ft long…Fairey and crew came down to Philly to do 2 murals with the Mural Arts Program (one is on the Rocket Cat Coffee Shop in Fishown and the other at 26th and Girard)…We had the wall prepped early Friday afternoon by Joe Konrad (All Day Construction) and Frank Santonastasi (Famous Frank) with helping hands from Jesse ‘Jambox’ Johnston and ‘Tall’ Lee Schnelle…the OBEY Posse showed up about 7pm and worked non-stop for just about 4 hours pasting the mural…the whole experience was amazing, Shepard was super nice and let us pick out the main artwork for the wall, which of course we went for the Misfits/OBEY fiend skull as the main focus…on Saturday we put the first coat of Poly over the artwork to protect it from the elements… I’m still star-struck from meeting Shepard, I’ve been a fan of his work for a long time now…extra special thanks to ‘Semi-Famous’ Bill McRight for setting this whole thing up, thanks buddy.”

Hailing from Boston, and playing what’s described as “post punk” since 1979, Mission of Burma’s current tour, of University rec rooms, and small venues, packs in a nice mix of young music fans, and middle age fans that haven’t seen them in 25- 30 years.
The sound at a show this weekend was amazing, filled with timeless energy, and tape loops,transcending 3 generations of indie critics, fans and wierdos.
Check out Michael Azerrad’s account of the the post punk era, from 81- 91 in “Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground”, a great read for music fans.
My friend Tom was a jackass way before the jackass crew. He started in about 81 he had somewhat of a drinking problem which led him to about four DUIs, he crashed a motorcycle over a bridge sliding 1000 yards on his chest breaking both legs collar bone and arm. Two years later in a snowboard accident he became paralyzed from the waist down but somehow recovered, part of his recovery was to go mountain bike riding, and on his first day out he did what he always did, and went way too fast ahead of everybody trying to be the best, he wound up going in a ditch hitting a tree and snapping his arm and half this is a great photo.
