protomen_20th anniversary
poster for the nashville-based band, the protomen
it's 2024. the protomen first took to the stage 20 years ago. to mark the occasion they are playing a show with the same bands (almost) that played with them at that first show. they asked us to make a poster to promote the occasion.

caspar had long been bothered with how badly daft punk had executed the cover artwork for their final album, random access memories. despite having access to their own helmets to photograph, they made a poor computer rendering of them instead. now, since the protomen had often referred to themselves as "a southern, buck-toothed daft punk", it felt right to finally set the record straight. we shipped their smashed-up, 20 year old helmets to joey ciccoline and he set about photographing them in the appropriate manner.

if you have the means to make it to the show we do recommend it. the protomen are, despite the tongue-in-cheek daft punk reference here, one of the most unique and extraordinary live bands in existence today.
