Concert poster collector and Nirvana Specialist Scott Mussell is seeking original posters, flyers and handbills from the Portland area. While the legendary grunge band is synonymous with Seattle, Portland was a key destination in the early days of the banana. “After expanding from the Tacoma area into Seattle- Portland was really the next testing ground” explains Mussell adding “The band preformed there as early as 1989, as the opening act to Mudhoney at the legendary Satiricon venue, the poster & handbill produced for this show misspell the bands name only further illustrating the unknown status they carried at the time.”
Another flyer Mussell is seeking is from a 1990 show at the Pine Street Theater. The flyer was produced on an offset press and features a killer design with a tyrannosaurus rex and a headline "It Came From Up North." The Feb. 9, 1990 show saw Tad and Rawheadrex open and Screaming Trees in the headlinging slot. "The graphics here really capture the attitude of the era, it’s very snarky and I love that fellow grunge giants Screaming Trees are on the headliners” says Mussell.
If you have examples of either of these flyers or any other Nirvana or related material from Portland Mussell is always looking to add to his collection. Other bands of interest include; Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Mookie Blaylock, Wipers, Greg Sage, Pearl Jam, Melvins and more. Wether it’s a single flyer or a hoard Mussell is interested contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone anytime at 515.707.7250.
