ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN - THE KILLING MOON, 1984.

Original Korova/WEA promo poster, 21.5"x17 3/4".

The single became the band's second UK top 10 hit, but achieved perhaps even greater worldwide prominence throught its use in the soundtrack of the 2001 film 'Donnie Darko'. Scarce.


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.



QUEEN - NEWS OF THE WORLD, 1977.

Original Elektra hanging display, 9"x20".
Art by Frank Kelly Freas.

Amazing double-sided in-store hanging mobile. The artwork was a reworking by the acclaimed Science Fiction and NASA artist of his famous October 1953 Astounding Science Fiction cover.
The album and lead single 'We Are The Champions' were hugely succesful.


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.



SUPERTRAMP - BREAKFAST IN AMERICA, 1979.

Original A&M promo poster, 36"x24"
Art direction and cover concept Mike Doud, design by Mick Heggarty, photography Aaron Rapoport.

Breakfast in America, with its memorable sleeve, was a huge international hit for the band.

Mike Doud had been Peter Corriston's collaborator on the spectacular sleeve for Led Zeppelin's Physical Grafitti. Their design for the album won Heggarty and Doud a Grammy award.

This poster is hard to find in good condition (this is very fine).

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.


THE ROLLING STONES - UK TOUR, 1971.

Original tour poster, 20"x30"
Art by John Pasche.

Appropriately known as the "Good-Bye Britain Tour", this was their first proper UK tour since 1966, launched just before their disastrous tax affairs forced them into the two year exile that was to result in the recording of 'Exile On Main Street'.

Reproductions exist - this is the genuine original poster.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.

THE SELECTER, THREE MINUTE HERO, 1980.

Original 2Tone promo poster, 10"x17"
Design by David Storey and John Sims.

Like Morrissey for the Smiths, Jerry Dammers maintained an intense obsession to detail over the look and design of 2Tone's output. David Storey is now a highly regarded fine artist. Original 2Tone poster material is hard to find.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.



ABC - POISON ARROW, 1982.

Original promo poster, 16.5"x23.5"

This original promo poster is signed by the original band members (almost certainly at the time).


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.



THE REVOLUTION OF ROCK - P J PROBY,
SHADOWS OF KNIGHT, YOUNG GIANTS 1967.

Original Continental Auditorium concert poster, 13"x20"
Artwork by Donna Herrick.

Continental Auditorium, Santa Clara, CA, May 12-13, 1967.
Great example of the explosion of psychedelic artwork in California in the 60s.


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.




THE HUMAN LEAGUE - DARE, 1981.

Original A & M promo poster, 35"x23"
Design Ken Ansell, photography Brian Aris.

'Dare' was the first really successful mixing of electronic sounds with pure pop and was a huge, almost inescapable, hit in the UK and the US. It effectively marked the end of post-Punk experimentalism and waved ashore the on-coming tidal wave of 80's pop.


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.


HAWKWIND - WARRIOR ON THE EDGE OF TIME, 1975.

Original ATCO promo poster, 20"x35".
Complete or partial art by Barney Bubbles.

Barney Bubbles, arguably the finest British designer in music of his generation, contributed elements to the inner sleeve artwork of the elaborately packaged album. The lp cover (at bottom) is not by Bubbles but the boat and sun design employed here (on this rare and gorgeous poster) and the remarkable flower and leaf framing, not present on the lp, almost certainly is.



SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.



SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES - U.S. TOUR POSTER, 1986

Cushway Litho. Art by Victor Moscoso.
22"x30"

West Coast underground comix and poster legend, Victor Moscoso unusually had serious academic training, studying art at Cooper Union, Yale and the San Francisco Art Institute, where he became an instructor. Moscoso's contrasting colors and vibrating edges was influenced by the Bauhaus's Josef Albers, his teacher at Yale.


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.




STEVE MILLER BAND/JANIS JOPLIN - 1967

Original concert poster, 13.5"x18.5".
Art by Bruce Krefting.

On 4th March 1967, Big Brother and the Holding Company played with the Steve Miller Band in 'a benefit for peace', 'Journey to the End of Night', at the U.C.S.F. medical center Steninger auditorium. Printed by The Bindweed Press, San Francisco.



SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.






TALKING HEADS, REMAIN IN LIGHT, 1980

Original Sire promo poster 18"x36"
Design by Tibor Kalman.

Scarce original promo poster for Talking Heads' brilliant fourth album, arguably their best, revealing the full development of their earlier Afro-polyrhythmic experiments. Their last collaboration with Brian Eno, they re-emerged three years later with an increasingly commercial sound.


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.

THE ROLLING STONES, 1978.

Original Rolling Stones Records promo still, 10"x8".

This image is from a day-long video shoot in New York City to promote the 'Some Girls' album, this image specifically from the video to 'Miss You'.
The photograph is possibly by Michael Putland.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.



FATBOY SLIM - YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY BABY, 1998.

Original promo poster, 12.5"x12.5"
Photography Simon Thornton.


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.



PAUL WELLER - STANLEY ROAD, 1995.

Original pre-release promo poster, 40"x60"
Artwork and collage by Peter Blake, cover design Simon Halfon.

Blake's painting of a young Paul Weller holding the photo of his older self, surrounded by images from childhood, Mod talismans, poetry and art. A modern classic design for Weller's definitive solo work.


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.



THE JAM - IN THE CITY, 1977.

Original Polydor promo poster, 20"x30"
Photography Martyn Goddard, design Bill Smith.

The Jam's energetic debut was an immediate attention grabber, which they famously found hard to develop from for the ever-tricky second lp. The title track was one of Punk's enduring early classics, whilst 'Away From The Numbers' pointed towards Weller's future songwriting maturity. This poster is in excellent rolled condition.


SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this item.
