If posters were rock and roll's early, defining visual hallmark, then flyers, which range from the size of a business card to larger than a greeting card, never too large to be distributed by hand, are the equivalent for contemporary club music. The cheerful, home-cooked visual parody and appropriation enabled by electronic media--"Come to where the flavor is," reads one Berlin handout reproduced here--have spawned a whole new genre, akin to the electronic music it often advertises.
