This design is a mix of 4 elements. First the photography comes from Kenneth Anger’s book Hollywood Babylon. The title Combat Shock comes from the movie of the same name by Buddy Giovinazzo, a 1986 Troma production. The tagline is inspired from French satirical magazine Hara-Kiri when they titled in 1970, following the death of general de Gaulle in his home of Colombey : Tragic ball at Colombey, 1 death. The choice of title refers to a terrible tragedy that took place a week before in Grenoble in France. A new nightclub (at the time also called ball) was completely destroyed by a gigantic fire and 146 youngsters were burned to death trapped inside. The exit doors were locked to prevent gatecrashing.
