Author(s): Sam Ryser
Sam Ryser’s influence on the global DIY punk scene has been enormous, through his musical output in his NYC bands, Crazy Spirit, Dawn of Humans, and Murderer as well as elaborate designs for his and other bands’ artwork. After years of designing flyers, record covers, t-shirts, and tour posters, he opened up the art and oddities shop DRIPPER WORLD in a converted shipping container in Bushwick. This space gave him a headquarters for not only distributing this art but also acting as a sort of showcase for his own projects and artwork, alongside those of his contemporaries and influences.
Welcome to Dripper World: Sound and Vision by Sam Ryser is the first collection of Ryser’s work spanning his entire career making fine art, flyers, clothing and ephemera for himself, his bands and some of the most influential acts from the punk underground.
Some artwork Sam produced for Melbourne bands such as Total Control & Geld is featured in this book. Local punks rejoice!
