Offset printed on light cardstock, 27.9 by 21.6 cm. Light wear and yellowing at the corners and an unfortunate splash of coffee (?) over the word “Punk.” A striking flyer for “Punk and CRIME” at the Fab Mab, produced by Jerry Paulsen of Psyclone Magazine. Not dated, but presumably 1977, give or take a year, based on the graphics and lack of the Mabuhay Gardens logo. Crime, “San Francisco’s first and only rock ‘n’ roll band,” were DIYers from the get-go; releasing their own 7” records and doing their own promotion. Often dressed as cops, they had an aggressive stage presence that lent itself well to a 1979 show at San Quentin State Prison produced by Target Video, where they wore exact copies of the uniforms worn by the prison guards.
