Stukas Over Bedrock: Logo #276

Stukas Over Bedrock had their caveman designed by Art Morales. Pete from the band: "That was drawn by Art sometime between 1982-1984. He also did the first Social Distortion album cover (the skeleton reclining in a chair). It first appeared in an ad we bought to promote one of our records about that time in magazines like Flipside and Maximum Rock'n'Roll and in flyers we made to advertise shows." There's an endless charm that comes with these old punk rock mascots and logos - they are entirely individual and unique to the artist, drawn without artifice or calculation. Punk's "no future" here could either mean the coming apocalypse caused by the smoking volcano or the increasing pressure to get a "real job."
