[Flyers]: Archive of Material for the English Gothic Band "Specimen"
California, 1986. Near Fine. A collection of 9 flyers, 5 maquettes, 15 tickets, and other ephemera promoting the British post Punk Goth band, Specimen during the mid-1980s. The collection features posters ranging from, 17" x 11" to 11" x 8.5" in size. Some of the flyers are printed copies of the maquettes. All items near fine with light creasing and marks. An archive of promotional material for the English Goth band, Specimen. The handbills featured here are illustrated with bats, fangs, caricatures of the band, wolves, and skulls to bolster their Gothic aesthetic. Also featured are maquettes with the original artwork for Specimen's concert flyers drawn with pencil and blue and black ink presumably by one of the band members. The tickets are from California venues like The Stone, Keystone Palo Alto, and The Farm from 1985-1986. "We urge you to become one of the documented Victims," is printed on three of the "Specimen Fang Club" subscription forms. The forms offer membership cards, pictures, the "Specimen Fangbook," and newsletters for the band. A small questionnaire is printed at the bottom asking for the subscriber's "Size of underpants and color", "Favorite perversion", and "How do you spell penis?" Specimen was formed in the 1980s in Bristol, England. They are a post Punk Goth band and have become synonymous with Gothic subculture through fashion and music. The lead vocalist, Olli Wisdom, opened the famous Batcave nightclub in 1982. The club featured a wide array of Gothic and Punk music and the band frequently played shows there. While the band no longer tours frequently today, in 2011 the band announced that they were working on a new album. An interesting collection of tickets, flyers, and band information about the popular Goth band Specimen.
