Exploitation Film Posters

Lately I have been on an exploitation film kick. Maybe it’s the over-the-top shamelessness, or most likely I am just a sucker for gorgeous women and retro type. Here are a few posters that I’ve found which are especially appetizing.

All the way from the bluegrass hills of Kentucky, Print Mafia has some great work with some definite exploitation influences.

Grain Edit, one of the best blogs going right now, has a fantastic interview with the very clever illustrator/designer, Frank Chimero. Chimero has a knack for putting common thoughts into words and pictures.

Apologies to all three of the people who read this blog. I’ve been a bit under the weather the past few days, but hopefully the worst is over.

Neko Case has announced a March 3rd release date for her upcoming release, Middle Cyclone. Cyclone, Case’s followup to the superb Fox Confessor, features appearances from fellow folksters M. Ward, Calexico, the Band’s Garth Hudson, and the Sadies. Get a load of the album art over at Stereogum.

Ryan Bingham is playing at the Eccles Center tonight in Park City. While I am fan of Bingham, the $65 ticket price seems a bit absurd.

A.A. Bondy, Breaking News, & Other Goodies.


Last night I was treated to an intimate performance by A.A. Bondy. Bondy’s folk driven melodies are both dark and sparce, while pulling tightly at the heartstrings. His solo debut American Hearts is available now on Fat Possum records. Head over to Daytrotter to download some tracks from their recent session.

A couple posts ago, I mentioned one of my old photo teachers, Jordan Tate. Back then one of Jordan’s projects was “Breaking News,” where he made up fake stories and put them on the front page of The New York Times, only to disperse them around the library and various coffee shops while he sat back and waited for the unsuspecting reader’s reaction. Could it be?

So stoked for the Truckers show tonight at the Bird. I’m anticipating a packed house so if you don’t already have tix, get over to the box office ASAP! Tomorrow I’ll report back with full a review… until then here’s some stuff for you to look at. Check out this phenomenal billboard. Found via Douglas Wilson. Joshua Budich has some pretty impressive prints of various pop icons. Buy some stuff while your there, God knows printers need to make a livin’ too.
