THE SPECIALS - GHOST TOWN, 1981
Original 2 Tone promo poster, 18.5"x28.5"
Design by John Sims and David Storey.
David Storey and John Sims, under Jerry Dammers' idiosyncratic direction, created the 2 Tone label's unique look, including Walt Jabsco, the dancing Ska man. For 'Ghost Town' Dammers wanted a striking illustration; Sims and Storey found the skeleton band on an old postcard.
David Storey: "What made 2-Tone different to everything else at that time was that Jerry directed all the visuals...We'd sometimes create these immaculate pieces of artwork, but he'd insist we roughed things up. He hated things looking clean and stiff."
This poster does not often surface.
