Bogus Slogan Poster #00076 - Inside View


Bogus Slogan Poster Series

Prior to Bogus Slogan concert tours, management sends ZenithPointStudio an itinerary of the tour and a request list for venues posters. Requests come from a variety of sources: the band, promoters, sponsors, even management itself.

Some times it comes from inside the studio.

Shop intern, Clemente Francisco Bonete (yes, he uses all three names) had come across this superb photo of two ships at rest while internet surfing. He remembered that BS was playing an upcoming gig at a place named the SilverHawk. Only, it was not on the list for a poster. The SilverHawk Lounge being a small venue, needed no publicity to sell tickets (the show was probably booked as a favor). The Band was playing January 17th at the smaller club, followed by a big college show the next night in nearby Albany, NY. Clem was told no.

Of course, the kid did not take no for an answer. Lobbying at every opportunity, to any one who would listen. Once the poster had been approved and printed, Bonete asked if he could get a half dozen prints for himself and friends. Since everyone was happy with the finished poster, he got nine.

The print run produced 175 posters. 25 were reserved for the band and ZenithPointStudio. The remaining prints were shipped in 3 boxes to the SilverHawk Lounge. Dropped off, on the sidewalk, before anyone had opened the club, a mid-morning rain destroyed the upper & lower boxes, leaving 50 prints.

Becoming a collector’s favorite, Clemente Francisco Bonete paid for his first year at art school by auctioning 9 Bogus Slogan Posters #76 on Ebay.

Bogus Slogan has been rockin’ the world for over  half a century. Springing from the Surf, Psychedelic, Garage of the Southern California 60s, the band has released over 3 dozen albums and toured America & the World extensively.
