Jello Biafra @ SSU

Jello Biafra giving a spoken word performance at Sonoma State University, Rohnert Park, Ca. I'm usually pretty good about keeping my ticket stubs from shows and events, but I don't seem to have the ticket stub from Jello's show anymore. I don't remember how long ago this show took place so I'm going to say it must have been early 1990s and leave it at that. Jello was cool with having photos shot with the flashbulb going off practically right in his face. He didn't appear to be bothered by it at all so I kept on snapping away. Crouching down at the edge of the stage I waited for Jello to walk nearby and then take a shot or two. He was so close he could have easily kicked me in the teeth. Black and white film lends a timeless quality to whatever you're photographing, and in this case with Jello that definitely holds true.

FP, this is extremely cool. Is this all your work? You conducted these interviews? I am stunned by the coolness of what you've posted here.
Also, I'm really glad you made it Saturday night. It was great to see you.

hey thanks Wad. yep, this was all stuff i put together. the interviews were more difficult than photography but it was fun working on both. kept me pretty busy for a while.

yeah man that poker gig you hosted was very cool. haven't laughed that much in a long time. you've got a good group of friends there. thanks again for the invite and let me know when and if you go to do that up again. i'll be there and hopefully next time i can stay later. the hot rod show was worth leaving early for though...

Cool. I'm glad you had a good time (and that the show was good, too).

What did you use to do the graphic design for Antocularis? Pagemaker? QuarkXPress?
Paste-up by hand? And will you be posting any covers or at least the logo or something? I'm curious to see the actual magazine.

for producing each issue of the magazine i used a variety of pre-system 7 macintoshes and i used a flatbed black and white scanner at the junior college when no one was looking. mostly i relied on QuarkXPress because nothing else did the job as good as Quark. i also spent a lot of time with Adobe Illustrator and of course Photoshop.

there seemed at the time to be a flood of music related 'zines and underground magazines. anybody could put something together as long as you had access to a photocopier. for me most of those 'zines were a total pain in the ass to read. shit was jumbled up and juxtaposed with cut up images AND poorly copied. so, when i decided on the graphic look of Antocularis i wanted it to be very simple but most importantly readable. the layout was clean and straightforward.

to keep costs down i made the master layouts in Quark and then output them through a high end laser printer. from there i placed two pages per a big mounting sheet with a wax gun. then the stack went off to a print shop to be shot. i saddle stitched the covers on by hand at home, again to save money. it was a good operation but man it took so much time. like a full 40 hour work week.

yeah, i'll eventually post some shots of those original issues as well as some of the other magazine projects i worked on.

It's funny how Aldus Pagemaker used to be the way to go, and then Quark took over page layout right about the same time Adobe took over Pagemaker. Then of course, Pagemaker never improved and Quark dominated. And it wasn't until just a couple of years ago that Adobe stole the industry back with InDesign, which is all I use now. I don't know anyone still using Quark.
