Punk's not dead

...it's just being recycled. I found this bass in the dumpster during the annual spring cleaning one week ago.

Actually a fairly nice bass, an neck-through body Aria Cardinal from 1982, now with a "custom" paint job by, I guess, the former owner. Note the alternative peace sign... :)

Or maybe punk isn't dead, it's just resting?

Do you think there is punk on other planets? Staying within the space theme here...

Well, Frank Zappa managed to become an
asteroid, so why not?

Johan said...

Haha thats NOT a punk bas.
It's a flower power bas. :)

LS said...

I agree with Johan - it is definitely a botanical item...

O.K. said...

Look closer, Johan. Iggy Pop is not flower power imo.

But the Iggy sticker is put there later. The original paint work is definitely flower power. :o)

LS said...

I know!!!! (raising her hand in class)

It is a HYBRID! Iggy pop + hippie!

LS said...

A few more thoughts:
1. Is there spunk on other planets? (ask Pippi Langstrump)
2. Is a sticker worth more than what is underneath it?
3. Will flower power live longer than punk?

O.K. said...

Of course yo do LS. ;)

How about "I wish I was a punkrocker with flowers in my hair" then?

Actually there's no paint under the sticker, so it must have been added first!

Ha! ;)

Johan said...

It's har to say if Flowe Power will live longer than Punk. Because punk will live for ever.
So its a kind of philosophical question.

Higgy Poppie?

LS said...

No REAL punkrocker would ever be seen with flowers in their hair (or with this bass), I think!

The person that painted the guitar must have loved that sticker a lot to leave it on and have it surrounded by paint. I think it was a converted 'punkare', that became a hippie.

LS said...

Higgy Poppie - is that the new GB icecream this summer? LOL

LS said...

Live forever... so time is infinite? Now we are back in the space issue again - was there time before Big Bang? Time can change too - is E=mc2 valid for punk too?

"The person that painted the guitar must have loved that sticker a lot to leave it on and have it surrounded by paint. I think it was a converted 'punkare', that became a hippie."

And then we have "recycled punk"?

O.K. said...

Higgy Poppie, following the success of Kokoskon? :)

LS said...
