poster children

Poster Children was formed in Champaign, Illinois in 1987 by Rick Valentin (guitar, vocals) and Rose Marshack (bass, vocals). Jim Valentin joined on guitar in 1991 and Matt Friscia (drummer #7) joined in 2001.

They have released eleven studio albums, on various independent and major labels, and one feature-length film, “Zero Stars.” Known for their strong DIY ethic, the band members toured incessantly in the 1990s, driving their own van around the US and Europe, creating their own artwork and T-shirt designs, and operating their own record label. Poster Children were also pioneers in several forms of electronic technology relating to performance art, including enhanced CDs, webcasts, and blogs. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the band’s second release, Daisy Chain Reaction, Lotuspool Records will be reissuing the record on vinyl on September 30, 2016. The band are touring the US in Fall 2016 and are currently working on a new album with famed recording engineer Steve Albini.
