Art of Punk


“My name is Raymond Pettibon and I designed this motherfuckin’ thing.”

Interesting doc on Raymond Pettibon the artist behind the famous 4 bar Black Flag logo.

Short and to the point, like the music, the story backs up my view that the music and the art were equally important to what Black Flag is/was. I saw that logo and those album covers for years before I finally got my hands on a cassette of Damaged and it sounded like it looked (same situation with The Misfits skull that I kept seeing on some dudes t-shirt during a rainy week spent at a dirty camp ground with my family.) I laughed when Henry Rollins says the same thing. Except for the parts where Flea spews his pompous bullshit threw that gap in his teeth I give this short documentary two middle fingers up.

You see what I did there?

I’ve got a six pack and nothin’ to do.
