Altamont Promotional info (Sept 8 2010):
For the Altamont Fall 2010 collection, Fucked Up contributed to the creation of the cover and vinyl 10" record for the Fall 2010 Altamont catalog, as well as two t-shirt designs. Here to explain the graphics in the Fucked Up for Altamont collaboration series is none other than Fucked Up frontman, Damian "Pink Eye" Abraham, himself:

"The idea for the Fucked Up hippie shirt, F'd Up Logo, was rooted in wanting to do something along the lines of the head shop Grateful Dead shirts. Around the age of 12, I went through a brief phase of taking acid, smoking weed and wearing a "steal your face" tie dye shirt. By the time I hit 14, I had taken a black sharpie and written "SUCKS" in huge letters across the front of said shirt and declared myself a punk, disavowing my brief "hippie" phase. With an enthusiasm that can only come from the recently converted, I professed my deep seated hatred of hippies to anyone that would listen as I thought that is what a good punk rocker should. However, after a few years passed, I learned more about the roots of punk and I began to soften my opinions. The importance of bands like MC5, Pink Fairies, The Fugs, Pink Floyd and countless others in forming what was to become called punk rock cannot be understated. This shirt is a tribute to all that is cool that came out of the hippies: Altamont, Weathermen, Manson, the great bands, drug culture, rock posters, underground comix, etc.

"The inspiration for the other shirt, F'd Up, came from the SST punk vs. raver t-shirt. When I was just getting interested in punk, my friends and I would pour over the cool shirts for punk bands/labels found in them Session's mailorder catalog. One of the shirts that I always wanted to order was a shirt with a drawing of a punk punching a raver in the face aka Punk vs. Raver shirt. Although I never did order the shirt the image of it has remained burned in my memory to this day. Unlike hippies, I still have never seen anything redeeming in rave culture. The same week Altamont asked us to do this I noticed a "Facebook" group for kids from Toronto that used to go to raves and it really bummed me out. So I asked Brian Walsby if he would be into doing his interpretation of the shirt on our behalf for Altamont. It turned out he had never seen the shirt so I gave him the gist of it and this is the result.

"Brian, in my opinion, is one of the best, most underrated illustrators to come out of punk. Though his art was used by everyone from 7 Seconds to The Melvins, he has somehow fallen into obscurity. He is also an amazing drummer having played in the pre-Ten Foot Pole band and 'Nardcore legends, Scared Straight, the pre-Superchunk band, Wax, Ryan Adams' pre-Whiskeytown band, The Patty Duke Syndrome and most recently winding up in one of the best current Hardcore bands, Double Negative.

''Since U Been Gone''


...and then out of the blue, this skeleton image appears on FU's instagram. So it looks like the above picture shows the front of the sleeve and the ones below show the back. Or vice versa. Probably.

Ayo, so does the Since U Been Gone 10" actually exist? I got word that Damian had the acetate and that it was never pressed.

Acetate (master disk) - Text copied from from Misfits Central:
The first step in the record pressing process is the creation of the master disk, or acetate, which is cut directly from the master tape of the recording. An acetate is a piece of aluminum coated with a layer of vinyl, into which grooves are cut, like a record. Unlike records, however, acetates are usually (see below) one sided, and come in pairs, one for each side of the album. They also often have two center holes; one hole is the standard center hole which acts as the axis for rotation, and the other hole is used by the guiding arm to turn the acetate while the writing stylus cuts the grooves. Some plants now use single-holed acetates which are held in place by suction.
One or, at most, two acetate sets are typically made for an album. Due to their composition, acetates begin to lose their sound quality within a matter of days. If an acetate is not used within three days, another set needs to be cut, or the sound quality of the finished product will suffer. For this reason, the acetate pair is sent immediately (via express mail) to the plater.
