Rare original 10 x 17 poster for the first public performance by the punk rock / heavy metal band the Plasmatics, which was held at CBGB’s in New York on July 26, 1978. The poster shows two images of the band in a slaughterhouse, with Wendy O. Williams dressed scantily and wielding a chainsaw, and the other members clad in white butcher coats. In fine condition, with tack holes to the corners. Led by former porn star and stripper Wendy O. Williams, the Plasmatics were a controversial ‘shock rock’ group known for chaotic, destructive live shows, and outrageous theatrics, which included partial nudity, exploding equipment, and chainsawing guitars.
From the Ramones and Punk Collection of Daniel Rey, and accompanied by a letter of provenance.
