    Black Flag
    Limited edition print of Black Flag poster TURRRNNN OFFF THHE RAAAADIO. I DONN'T WWANT TO LISSTEN TO MUUSIC., signed by Raymond Pettibon and numbered 129. Pettibon is the brother of Greg Ginn, founder of Black Flag and SST Records. Pettibon famously created album covers, concert flyers and much more for Black Flag before becoming a celebrated contemporary artist. He created this print and a few others as limited editions in the 80's, but according to information I found online, Greg Ginn had most of Pettibon's stuff that was being stored by SST thrown in the dumpster. Thus very few of these survived and many of those that did were damaged. This one was given by Pettibon at the time to the original owner. 11x17in.
