When I was a kid, back in the early to mid-80s, my father used to take me into the record store in our local mall (specifically, the Listening Booth in the Palmer Park Mall in Easton, PA) on occasion. While he was digging through the LPs, I was staring at the images in the heavy-metal posters that loomed at adult head-height over the shelves.
I was particularly terrified of one large poster that depicted a sort of Frankenstein-esque monster holding up by its hair the head of a freshly decapitated witch. The witch’s body lay on the ground at the monster’s feet, and a number of red and blue veins were dangling from the head and extending to the neck. (That’s the part that is seared indelibly on my brain.)
Much later, I grew up to be the sort of adult who loves horror movies. I’d love to look at this image again to see if it really is as horrific as I remember.
What I can’t remember is what musician or band this poster was advertising! My Google-fu is usually pretty good, but I can’t come up with anything for this image. Unfortunately, the record store went out of business years ago, so I can’t ask them. I know it’s not the sort of thing that Kindertrauma generally handles, but maybe it will ring a bell for you?
Even if it doesn’t, I adore your blog! Thanks for any leads you might have.
