I always thought that Jermaine's VanGogh/skull set of prints for Trail/Mogwai were pretty killer. Sad that I haven't been able to get into either band despite trying... would have me buying more prints for 'em both though so I guess I'm better off this way...

My two favorites are actually four posters. GREAT ANSWER.

This is a true diptych, two nights where they traded headlining with Mogwai. They are drymounting RAD and for a year or so I had them hung over my bed. Not screens, though, digital...if that turns you off. Certainly didn't turn anyone off in my bed. Hey now.

These aren't really a diptych, but look great together, and the world needs more MMM posters anyway:

If I had to pick one Trail of Dead poster, it's probably be that last one, the girl in the dress. The other MMM being not far behind.

I've never seen this IRL but it seems like it's appropriate to the band...spacious, potentially violent, large and with room to breathe, occasionally chaotic...

Image

I have this, it's rad (Lure makes GREAT stuff)...I can get it to you for shipping if you want it:

smith has great taste in music and i knew he'd have an answer. both he and yamar chose the jermaine's. i own those but sadly the digital printing was too much for me. those MMM's are f'ing sweet! sadly i actually think i own them but have never looked at them. i gots to go digging tonight.

Love Trail Of Dead, seen them many times. Maybe not definitive, but this is a favorite.

I like this one, but not because of the art/printing - just because movie posters are my thing so I find it funny:

As for stand-alone poster, this one gets my vote:

I actually went to this show... don't own the print sadly, but it is mighty purdy.

I agree. Awesome poster. I have an AP available for $19.99 plus shipping. (Need to update my trades. Disregard the current asking price.)

Yes, I was gonna suggest the Slater that's been mentioned - it is a beauty of a poster and image - someone has got to jump on that offer from aahnutz, that is a sweet deal and she is a top-drawer deal-maker.

That Methane is pretty solid too... forgot about that one.
And honestly, I do like those Jermaine's a lot but have sold them twice - just get turned off by the digital printing/glossy look...

My favourite is this one:

Picspam here.

Metallic inks, and the handbills are pretty adorable. Krause is underrated.

I feel you. I just can't "love" digital prints.

my favorite is probably the Jay Vollmar
