Spermbirds at Headhunters Poster By Chuck Sperry, SxSW, Austin Texas

When the German punk band, Spermbirds, asked Chuck to do a poster for their upcoming SxSW showcase, he said, “Hells yeah!” He’d hung out with these cats in Berlin and had gotten into all sorts of fun. The poster design is based on a German cigarette tax stamp from back in the day before the Euro came in. He’d been saving this thing for twelve years – looking at it and thinking, “Now, that’s a poster design waiting to happen.”

  1. I bought this poster at a Spermbirds show in Köln and I live in Austin :). The detail is pretty amazing in real life.
