TO PUNK FLYERS
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.
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.
