BJM Vs Dandies Poster


Well I’ll be a sea-squirt’s uncle! It’s my very own blog. Better three years behind the times than never, dudes!

Even thought I’m a Johnny-come-lately to this blog nonsense, this isn’t an entirely new bag for me. Y’see, I ‘ve been spreading crap on myspace for what, two years now? Wow, has it really been that long? Sheesh- so many hours wasted. Good thing I’ve been thinking it’s high time for me to start spending even more time in front of the computer and even less time on my work. So, here you go. I’m not working. Doodie-doo-doo.

Okay friends, for my very first post, I thought I ‘d share a poster I ‘d done for a soon-to-be legendary show that’s ah-happening tonight in Portland, Oregon at The Crystal Ballroom. I wish I could magically fly there and see the action unfold. Stupid responsibilities and even stupider lack of magical powers.

Like, uh, yeah- so here’s the poster I ‘d done for my all-time favorite rock and roll freakout-good time band, The Brian Jonestown Massacre. I had the good fortune to work pretty closely with them on a few different poster ideas and this was the only one that materialized. Unfortunately,(and you can’t have it all, right?) I think The Dandy Warhols are none too pleased with being portrayed at odds with one another on the poster.
Ah well, What can you do?
Hey! Lighten up, Dandies! It’s all in good fun! Eveyone knows you are really friends in real life, Dig sucks, etc, etc… It was all done in the name of love, baby!
If any of you are at this show tonight, tear this sucker down off the walls and keep it! Yeah, keep it! Oh better yet- buy it…Yeah, that’s what you should do…Um, and hug someone too.

By Josh Latta

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.
