This is the oldest Radiohead poster I own by concert date. It’s just a photocopied pole paster, I know, but I love this thing! This concert took place just an hour from my house back when I was just a wee lad. Sure, someone could simply photocopy the thing and say its an original, but the patina here is a bit tougher to fake. Not to mention: why would they? Fake a Rolex, sure - everyone wants those. But an R.E.M. flyer? That would be a special kind of evil.


  1. That reminds me, I think I have an old Bends-era flyer for a San Diego show around here somewhere. Do you collect flyers too? Or just the bigger, fancier stuff?

  2. I definitely collect flyers too! Let's trade bro !
