Stencil kits, collage and handwriting were expedient but in retrospect, their impact demonstrates a rough aesthetic that was equal to the music: messy, disordered, contemptuous of rules, yet hypnotic in its mad, monochrome energy. Players would produce their own posters, suggesting a tantalising connection between music and image.
