Grinderman may be no more, but I recently came across these absolutely stunning posters for their Melbourne gigs on 17th and 18th January 2011.
The first poster, left, was illustrated by Ken Taylor, who seems to do a lot of one-off gig poster design (see his excellent blog for posters from Pearl Jam, Swans, Soundgarden, the Decemberists and Bon Iver and Queens of the Stone Age among many).
Melbourne based Illustrator & Designer Ken Taylor works primarily within the music industry and is predominantly well-known for his striking rock posters. Ken started in Perth Western Australia doing posters and album artwork for local bands. In 2001 He moved to Melbourne and slowly started to create a name for himself within Melbourne’s music scene. In 2006 he went out on his own and started to work full-time on music based artwork.
This poster is (currently) available from Beyond the Pale:

I ordered two of this poster and two of the next which, with shipping from Australia to the UK, cost $195 AUD – about £138 (or $215 USD). And the customer service has been great so far!
The second poster, left, is by Rhys Cooper, who also seems to do a lot of one-off gig and film posters.
