THE BUZZCOCKS, c.1979


Original John Andow photo 8"x10"

As well as being one of Punk's great originals in their own right, Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto were responsible for organising the Sex Pistols gig at Manchester's Free Trade Hall in June 1976, which lit the touch paper for Manchester's remarkable creative musical explosion.

THE SEX PISTOLS - NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS, 1977.

Original Virgin promo poster, design by Jamie Reid.
40"x60"

ELTON JOHN - DON'T SHOOT ME I'M ONLY THE PIANO PLAYER, 1972.

Original DJM promo poster, 30"x20".
Design by Michael Ross.

The album was released in early 1973, but this superb poster is dated 1972 and may conceivably feature the originally intended cover art. The signature cannot so far be deciphered.

Vintage Elton John posters from the classic early albums are very scarce.

SHIVA'S HEAD BAND, SLEEPY JOHN ESTES, RUBAIYAT, 1968.

Original Vulcan gas Company concert poster, 26.5"x21 1/4"
Artwork by Gilbert Shelton

The Vulcan Gas Company (1967 - 1970) was Austin Texas's legendary underground venue, with some of the best psychedelic concert posters of the 60s. Produced in small quantities with no reprintings, unlike their San Francisco counterparts, this poster is very rare.
Gilbert Shelton went on to draw the Fabulous Fury Freak Brothers comix. Distinctive artwork for an incongruous bill typical of the period.


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



AC/DC - FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK..., 1981.

Original Atlantic promo cut-out, 30"x28".

Unusual and striking record store display piece, of a kind that rarely survives intact.


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



PINK FLOYD AT CIA-UFO CLUB, July 28 1967.

Original poster, 30"x20".
Design by Hapshash and the Coloured Coat (Michael English and Nigel Waymouth), printed by Osiris Visions

Commissioned by International Times to design posters for their underground UFO club on London's Tottenham Court Road, Michael English and Nigel Waymouth were true creative originals, on a par with San Francisco's famous Family Dog collective. Pink Floyd's UFO performances before a sympathetic audience helped cement an increasing popularity. A week later, their first album 'Piper At The Gates of Dawn' was released.

Vintage originals of this poster are very scarce. Beware fakes.


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

SEX PISTOLS - THE GREAT ROCK'N'ROLL SWINDLE, 1980.

Original British quad poster, unfolded, 30"x40"
Art by M. Hirsch.

The magnum opus of Malcolm McLaren's re-invention of the band's history (in his favour) that began almost the moment it ceased to exist. It took 20 years for 'The Filth And The Fury' to set the record straight. A proposed Jamie Reid design was ditched in favour of the final (apt) 'Carry On..'-style artwork.

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



DAVID BOWIE - YOUNG AMERICANS, 1975.

Original RCA/Mainman promo mobile, 16"x17"
Photography Eric Stephen Jacobs.

In a characteristically sharp turn, Bowie shed his glam rags for an exploration of America and the polished sound of Philadelphia soul. The title single was a breakthrough for him in the U.S. and the album also yielded the classic Lennon collaboration 'Fame'.

This original unused (still flat) die-cut mobile is a rare find.

Original Island promo poster 23" x 35"
