LADYTRON with CANSEI DE SER SEXY (CSS) at The Showbox, Seattle, WA October 13th, 2006. Original Signed and Numbered Concert Poster. By Mike Klay aka Powerslide Design. Mike Clay- Powerslide Design Co. Is the brainchild of Seattle-based graphic designer Mike Klay. A musician and an outdoorsman, his collection of manually screen-printed posters and tees evokes the beauty of nature and the energy of music. Hailing from the South Bay Area in California, I currently reside in Seattle where it doesn’t rain as often as you think. The Pacific Northwest is a frequent backdrop for my art. What began as a silk-screened concert poster has turned into art prints, shirts and other various merchandise. Music has always been a driving force behind a lot of the ideas that Klay puts on paper. In high school he picked up a guitar and learned a couple of notes until he eventually starting laying down beats on a drum kit. After graduating from college and moving to Seattle, there was no way that Klay could play drums in an apartment. Turntables were Klay’s natural progression in music and also a way to keep his neighbors happy. Eventually the turntables became singular and an acoustic guitar was added to the mix. Whether it be the music he listens to while working, the local venues he visits to see various music acts perform, or browsing through one of the many local record shops; music makes him tick.
