The Art of Rick Fork–Headhunter Records ads, Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From the Crypt, etc

In the 1990s San Diego was a happening place for a few indie, punk, and postpunk bands, some of the most notable were Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From the Crypt, and Pitchfork.  Many were on a label Headhunter Records. Singer/guitarist/artist Rick Fork/Rick Froberg/Rick Farr did the art for a lot of these bands and Headhunter Records ads.  Here are some scans of some of the art he did for Headhunter Records including ads for Drive Like Jehu and Rocket from the Crypt. Some of the scans were contributed by Paul Stanley and Jeffrey from the Swami Records forum. ..

And of course one of my favorites, the Rocket From the Crypt Boychucker 7″ picture disk (can someone scan the back for me?)

And Rick Fork’s cat drawing on a Hot Snakes t-shrit…

Does anyone have any images of his artwork from his website which now seems to be down?

There are also a bunch of Drive Like Jehu photos located here

  2. Long shot but would anyone have a higher res scan of the Hot Snakes black cat pic? I’ve been looking to use the cat in a tattoo design for a while (for me not commercial) but obviously the 300×300 is pretty pixellated.

    Any help appreciated!
