BACK TO PUNK FLYERS

The GERMS were certainly LA's most infamous punk band, with every concert resembling something like a mini-riot. This stunning flyer by artist Shawn Kerry announced what was to be the very last GERMS concert on December 3, 1980. I was at that fateful performance given at the STARWOOD and I will never forget it. Only days after the tumultuous concert, lead singer DARBY CRASH committed suicide.

Shawn Kerry did quite a number of wonderful flyer designs, and her artistic skills were utilized by bands like the CIRCLE JERKS and D.O.A.
