Magazine X Benefit poster featuring Contortions, Police Band, Erasers, DNA, Theoretical Girls and Terminal, 1978. Design by Seth Tillett; offset on paper: 14 x 20 in.
This street poster advertises a “No Wave” rock concert to raise money to print the third issue of X Magazine. Some of the groups that performed — the Contortions and DNA — were later recorded by Brian Eno for the seminal “No New York” album. This poster is not to be confused with the similar-looking, smaller version that was featured as the centerfold in the third issue of X Magazine and thanked the bands for their help. The item for sale here is the original; it is larger, printed on better paper, and exceedingly rare.
