For one of my finals I did a case study of the LA Punk scene around its beginning .
I came up with a new promotional avenue/gimmick that still fell into the bands
limitations and parameters in 1976.
For part of my final i created an instillation of a 11 x 17 missing poster that the
band could have put up all over the sunset strip. The poster/flyer was designed
to mimic a missing poster for a "RUNAWAY" at the time. It also tells a story,
which would create a buzz or hype around the bands name, especially because
Joan was a minor at the time. To seal the deal i added the DIY "tear a number
strips" with their manager at the time Kim Fowley's name on them.
