Bogus Slogan Poster #00085 - Inside View


Bogus Slogan Poster Series

Back a few years ago… the members of Bogus Slogan were running through a Jazz vein. From this urge a call was made to the Vertex World Crime League office, requesting them to promote a month long series of concerts in and around New York City.

Getting into the Jazz clubs of old on short notice was not
easy. BS Poster #86 (coming next week) was for the first
attempt – a ‘long weekend’ of 5 shows at the famed Five Spot
Jazz Club. Poster #85 promoted Bogus Slogan’s appearance, two years later, again at the Five Spot. A part of several concerts in the New York area in appreciation of Thelonious Monk.

Bogus Slogan played many of their favorites Monk compositions. They even took BS band songs and played them a la Monk. These concerts, while a sincere effort, are difficult to acknowledge. The supporting T.S. Monk cover bands tended to outplay the headliners. In fact, the recording tapes from this week were destroyed on unanimous demand by the band. Bootlegs from two of the shows circulate at a very high price.

Monk is one of those pioneers, originals in music. His recordings are not background sound. If you have the shallowness of wood veneer, then stick with your current fad band. Monk will ask too much from you.

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.

Bogus Slogan uses artists, Illustrators and graphic designers from all over the world. ZenithPointStudio is proud to present many of the posters famed studio has done on behalf of the band.

ZenitPointstudio creates photos, graphics, illustrations and music for the entertainment of people.
