– PPG #23 – We tried a few times to get a poster done for this radical Philadelphia band… and you know us, we are local, and we like to support our local bands. After a few setbacks, and the clock running out of time, our grunt worker Rodger Binyone struck a thought, and then a sketch which turned into this poster. All funds received from this print will go to the PPG coffers to help support future projects and prints. drop over to Union Transfer, grip a copy of The War On Drugs new LP, and take home a (4) color, 18″ x 24″ screenprint.

– PPG #22 – Eric Kenney & Pissed Jeans. Another wild and fantastic poster for the Philly legends, but hey… was 1 enuff? And, another member of the Awesome Dudes. Eric Kenney is a man on the scene, rising to meet the demand of a hungry public. He publishes his own classic zine –
“Dog Days”, and has a show forthcoming at
Space 1026 in March. Check into more of his work at the corresponding links above and over there to the right. *Be sure to take a look at the crisp, wicked tiger on the closeup shot of this weightlifting “man”.

– PPG #21 – Kerry Kenney – Shape Denter. Not much is known about this band… apparently they’ve been around since 1997. We were only able to find one recording, a wild demo.
There is an amazing review by Rich Kroneiss of Terminal Boredom in which he admits to this particular Demo as “breaking his spirit.” As for Kerry Kenney, you might know his work better by the name D’noit Airbrush. Shimmy on down to the Spirit Dump, where drinks are always 1/2 off, and grip a stack of SD 5 color screenprints, or purchase right here online.
