Carl Lundgren on becoming one of rock’s iconic poster artists


Carl Lundgren on becoming one of rock’s iconic poster artists
High flier




Carl Lundgren’s rock ’n’ roll
posters from the ’60s and ’70s have become synonymous with the groundbreaking music that defined the era. Designing dozens of posters for bills at the Grande Ballroom — for the likes of the MC5, Jefferson Airplane, the Who, and more — Lundgren’s colorful artwork perfectly encapsulates the psychedelic vibes of the music and the time, and have made him a sought-after and collectible artist. This was never his plan, though.

“It was just a fluke,” Lundgren says of his place in the annals of Detroit rock history. He originally wanted to move to New York and be a sci-fi and fantasy paperback cover artist. In the meantime, Lundgren needed money, and in his early 20s he crossed paths with Gary Grimshaw, who was already making a name for himself as a rock poster artist. Lundgren made some sample posters and showed them to Grimshaw, who dug them enough to let him take a crack at it, and the two began working together. “I was a fan of that stuff, and I just lucked into the fact that Detroit actually had a scene,” he says.

Lundgren explains that the old posters were made through a method of high-quality printing called lithography. “They were printed by a printer who actually printed menus for restaurants, so they were really high-quality, because the food has to look appetizing on menus,” he says. “The guy who ran the print shop was Gary’s uncle, and he hired these German printers with Heidelberg presses who came and printed all these beautiful posters. That’s why they’re so valuable and collectible.” That, and the fact that the posters were printed in limited editions.

John Sinclair Radio Show 555: The Preacher



Episode 555 is beaming out once again from the 420 Café in Amsterdam, our home base in The Netherlands and indeed the world, where we’re commemorating the great achievement of pianist-composer-bandleader Horace Ward Martin Tavares Silver, who passed away last week, by listening to his pioneering soul jazz & jazz funk recordings with the Horace Silver Quintet for Blue Note Records from the mid-1950s into the 1960s. Memorial services for Horace Silver will be held at 7 pm on Monday, July 7, at St. Augustine of Hippo. Espiscopal Church, 290 Henry Street in Manhattan.
