Thanks Peter, got me thinking abotu this little project I started, I gotta use my phone and snap some pics, should be fairly easy to finish this, at least the poster stuff. Although it could be tricky to find them all, I know some are in frames behind other posters, so may have to open up some framed stuff to find some of these...

Yes I have that 10 – 1 poster but no idea where I got it from

Also have this one that I have never seen before and once again can’t recall where I got it from. I have asked both Jim and Rob and they too said they had never seen it

It was definitely with Diesel & Dust – i got mine with the cassette!

I'm pretty sure the photos were taken on the tour shown on the attached photo – the Sydney/Melbourne tour from 1986 where the D&D songs were being road tested before the album came out. I was at the Cronulla Leagues club shows!

And has anyone seen the poster in the other attachment – i got it from a record store in ~1984. It was to promote 10 – 1 but obviously was cross-promoting every thing else. Its huge!

I had one of those, I got it with Diesel and Dust I think.

Bought the book a couple of years later.

I actually cut the poster up into the three separate pictures to stick around my walls. I don’t know what happened to them, I still have some of my old posters but I don’t think I have those any more.

[Attachment(s) from jsprint74@yahoo.com.au [powderworks] included below]

Today I finally got around to laminating this rare Oils "poster" that has been in my cupboard fpor many years.

Someone advised against me laminating it, because it would destroy the value of it as a collector's item. However, I know that I am never going to try to sell it. If anything I would give it away as a gift. Also, it is double-sided. One side has three live photos from a concert probably around 1986. (Note the stuffed animals and water tank from the exhibition) The other side has an excerpt from Andrew MacMillan's "Strict Rules" book.

I apologise for the poor quality of the pictures-I will try to take some better ones.

Also posted are my 2 other Oils posters, just for the sake of sharing - The Breathe one and the Redneck Wonderland one (that I bought at a concert).

I wonder, have any other Powderworkers seen this "Warakurna" poster before? I was l ucky to find it at a record collector store many years ago, and have not seen anything like it elsewhere.

Another anecdote, I remember that I visited a fellow Powderworker once upon atime who had an awesome Species Deceases poster. Basically a A1 version of the album cover. That art makes a truly fantastic poster and I was very jealous! Even better thatn the Iron Maiden "Aces High" poster I had when I was 14! LOL
