The Crying Minotaur – Steve Walters, Chicago, 2001

Artist: Steve Walters
Type: Release Party Poster
Print: Silkscreen
Size: 24 x 18
Event Date: 6.4.2001
Venue: The Hideout, Chicago, IL
Signed, numbered in an edition of 107

After years of searching I was finally able to track this one down direct from the artist. I first came across it in the massive book The Art of Modern Rock: The Poster Explosion which was printed back in 2004. I’d never even seen one come up for auction or on any poster websites, but Steve of Screwball Press had one he was willing to sell me, and now it resides proudly in the collection. He also sent a cool bonus print along with it.

No, this is not a “gig poster” per se. It was printed for a listening/release party for the band’s new album Amnesiac from back in 2001. But it is a signed and numbered silkscreen that is characteristically Radiohead, so here it belongs.
