More 1980s punk flyers

As the 1980s become ever more distant in the rear view mirror, it becomes easier to romanticize a time when tooth-rotting cereals were advertised between cartoons that showed mice snorting coke, and robot teddy bears read bedtime stories. On second thought, maybe it wasn’t quite as great I remember it.

But the music scene is another story. We’ve already looked at a dozen punk rock flyers from the 1980s (as well as 12 punk flyers from the ’70s) that would make any music fan drool — so here is another collection to make you even more nostalgic…even if you weren’t there.

    Growing up in this era, I can really appreciate these flyers. I know that my band at the time also put out similar flyers. I especially like the one where the Red Hot Chili Peppers was not a headline but one of the “supporting” bands to the Cramps music event. These were fun and exciting times. This is obviously long before Photoshop. Good old cut and paste. Thanks for the memories
