Under the Sea Palooza

Here's my Illustration Friday "Under the sea" offering. This is a really rare rock poster from way, way back in the 1980's, featuring ClamHead and the Electric Sturgeon. The reason this poster is so rare is that the Electric Sturgeon only performed ONE concert...and this was it! Some say they were ahead of their time, others say the band's problems was that you just couldn't understand any of the bands lyrics, Rolling Clam Magazine's Crab Cakes is quoted as saying ..."sounds like they got a mouth full of mackerel!" There was one thing this band was famous for though...GROUPERS!
