SEX PISTOLS - PRETTY VACANT, 1977

Original Virgin Records promo poster, 27¼"x7½".

Who came up with the original 'Nowhere' and 'Boredom' buses? Jamie Reid says it was him in 1972; Berkeley, CA, Situationist group Point-Blank! say it was them in 1973. Either way, this crisply printed in-store banner is uncommon and one of Reid's best designs for the band.

Please inquire.

THE JAM - SOUND AFFECTS, 1980

Original PolyGram Records promo poster set of 3, each 12¾"x24¼".

All three posters are very scarce - beware repros!

Original Big O Posters Inc poster, 20"x30".
Artwork by Martin Sharp and Eija Vehka Aho.

Martin Sharp: "I adored the song 'Mister Tambourine Man'. In London I had a wonderful printer, Peter Ledeboer, who was printing OZ. He loved the idea of doing posters; he was a great publisher for me. And I really loved the effects of foil, so we printed on foil stock." (in 'Electrical Banana: Masters of Psychedelic Art', Norman Hathaway and Dan Nadel.)

The artist gave credit to his Finnish girlfriend, with whom he lived at the Pheasantry in Chelsea: "I can remember my dear friend Eija Vehka Aho creating all the beautiful circles that make up Bob Dylan’s hair and which contribute so much to the work." (in 'Australian art in the National Gallery of Australia', Anne Gray.) Vehka Aho recalled creating the circles with a pair of compasses.

Martin Sharp adapted the image of Dylan from a 1965 on stage prior to his August 28 performance at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, New York.

THE ROLLING STONES - IT'S ONLY ROCK'N ROLL, 1974

Original Rolling Stones Records promo poster, 23 ½"x16½".
Art by Philip Castle.

The album cover painting was created by Belgian artist Guy Peellaert but the actual promotional material artwork – featuring a much more striking image interpreting the lyrics “If I could stick my pen in my heart and spill it all over the stage” - was created by British Pop Artist Philip Castle in a style that could sync with Peellaert’s artwork.
Amongst many other commissions, Philip Castle created the famous poster artwork for 'A Clockwork Orange' and 'Full Metal Jacket' for Stanley Kubrick. He also created the ‘teardrop’ on David Bowie’s shoulder on Brian Duffy’s album cover photograph for ‘Diamond Dogs’.

Original Harvest/Capitol promo poster, 36"x24".
Design and photography: Hipgnosis. Illustration: George Hardie for Hipgnosis.

Original in-store promo poster, illustrating the band's previous lp releases.

Original Island promo poster, 60"x40".
Design by Jean-Paul Goude.

V. scarce large format poster (note: this format of poster was intended for flyposting, so record companies ensured their details were left off).

Jean-Paul Goude: Would you agree that you have always had a problem with authority?

GRACE JONES - NIGHTCLUBBING, 1981

Probably the single most famous image of Grace Jones, Jean Paul Goude's 1981 'Blue-black in black on brown' created as oil paint on cut up photo.
Jean Paul Goude: "Grace was very open. We worked together to create this intimidating character. I mean, she's naturally intimidating anyway...I tried to emphasize that body shape through a sort of minimalist German expressionism, with its games of shadows and its angular shapes."

THE CLASH - LONDON CALLING, 1979

Original CBS promo poster, 24"x 24".
Design by Ray Lowry.
Photography by Penny Smith.

This UK-printed poster doesn't feature the 'Two for a Fiver' tag, meaning it was most likely intended for promotion elsewhere in Europe, in particular Ireland.

Penny Smith had spotted Paul Simonon's growing frustration with the Palladium's audience that night and her attention enabled to her - whilst backing away! - to shoot the exact moment when the bass guitar came smashing down, capturing one of the defining images in rock history.
All original UK posters on the album are notably scarce.
