Post a Joke

Light Bulby Baby

The portable tape recorder was the thing to have at 12 years old. We would record stories, laughing and of course Dial A Joke. I think it cost our folks about 10 cents a phone call back in the early 70s. The jokes were always stupid, funny and a little nasty. This is Post a Joke via Flopside comics.

Mr. Fuck felt it was important to bring back the nasty humor.

Mr. Shit did not think the joke was funny at all.

Mr. Crap got a big smile on his face.

The rest of the Flopside Comics family were too busy watching Clint Eastwood films to care much…

Tape recorder #1 shit worker at Flipside Fanzine


This is one of my favorite pictures taken by Al Flipside. Why it is so interesting to me, because I am holding the tape recorder that was responsible for recording all the interviews we did at Flipside, at least when I was there. Also, I am wearing my PIL pants… I loved those pants… DIY silk screening days… and then there is Wimpy’s face… brings chills to my spine! I reprinted this special Flipside issue because it is a history of Punk Voices…. an oral history. Now available again in a sweet paperback book. 1977 to 1987.

(On Cover Subhumans and Samoans: Greg Turner, Metal Mike, Wimpy, Hud, Garry and Jim.)
