Radio Silence documents the ignored space between the Ramones and Nirvana through the words and images of the pre-Internet era where this community built on do-it-yourself ethics thrived. Authors Nathan Nedorostek and Anthony Pappalardo have cataloged private collections of unseen images, personal letters, original artwork, and various ephemera from the hardcore scene circa 1978-1993. Unseen photos lay next to hand-made t-shirts and original artwork brought to life by the words of their creators and fans. Radio Silence includes over 500 images of unseen photographs, illustrations, rare records, t-shirts, and fanzines presented in a manner that abandons the aesthetic clichés normally employed to depict the genre and lets the subject matter speak for itself. Contributions by Jeff Nelson, Dave Smalley, Walter Schreifels, Cynthia Connolly, Pat Dubar, Gus Peña, Rusty Moore, and Gavin Ogelsby with an essay by Mark Owens.

Mr. Reason just wrote something about a modified version of the poster above. I first noticed these in 2005 and was totally inspired by them, since they are very depressing. The all black 2008 version does not have the blank stare, face-painted Marylin but, the white on black type works just as well. Luckily, both of these are available for purchase through the artist’s site, for a recession friendly $25. Read some more about it in the Wooster Archives.
I have been seeing these little numbers making their way around campus (second stop off the L). I am not sure the reason but, it’s aN interesting statement in these uncertain times.
