If Music Could Talk

(Record Store Day 2021)


I was asked by my old comrades The Clash to provide new artwork and liner notes for the Record Store Day release of their 1981 radio promo “interview” LP “If Music Could Talk”. It’s a record on which I also appear asking questions. I came up with the front cover featuring Augusto Cesar Sandino and his beloved boombox. I also contributed some sleeve notes for Robert Gordn McHarg’s back cover featuring a Pennie Smith photograph”.

Summer – Autumn 2021

This Ian Dury inspired/tribute exhibition was originally  planned for 2020, but due to The Pandemic was rescheduled for the summer of 2021. Presented by and including the Thames Group of Artists, it is curated by Charles Sharman-Cox. I was asked to be a guest contributor by Will Birch, as were Sir Peter Blake, Humphrey Ocean, Rod Melvin and Sophy Dury.”

Secret 7″ (2020)

The 7th and final Secret 7″ exhibition and sale, did not go as Kevin King and his team had so carefully planned for. Covid 19 restrictions meant that the display of the 700 artist made record sleeves had to be virtual and the sale took place as an online auction. Still I am happy to report that not only my cover for Bob Dylan’s “Blind Willie McTell” (revealed here), but many other covers too, sold for well above the usual fifty pounds fixed price.”

I was invited by famed photographer and old pal Janette Beckman to contribute a “Punk  Rock Mash Up” for her show in London.

The Punk Rock Mash Ups are an addition to the Hip Hop ones that debuted (to much applause) at The Museum Of The City Of New York. If you’re in or visiting London do take a look.

PUSH 2 (Book)


Earlier this year I was interviewed for Joe England’s literary fanzine Push (March/April issue #15). Well now East  London Press have published  their second compilation of this hard hitting fanzine “PUSH 2”. Not only is my interview included but I am also credited with the Cover Design. I would however like to point out that it is in fact a tribute to both Edward “Teddy” Young’s Penguin Book design and an obscure West Ham away shirt. Even this could not be accomplished without the help of Graham Want.

“PUSH 2” contains some very excellent writing, referred to by some as “street literature” it is not for the faint hearted – as Big Youth would say “Lightning flash and weak heart drops”. For more info click here.

Secret 7″ Revealed

Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 2.00.05 PM

The “secret” is out and the sleeve is sold (to the gentleman pictured above I assume). I chose Diana Ross & The Supremes “Reflections” a favorite since it’s release in 1967. My cover star is Donyale Luna (worthy of further investigation) with special guests:  front  – an American GI from the Vietnam War and back – rifle laden Newark, N.J. police car. To see both sides of the sleeve click here or on the picture above.

Secret 7″

Thanks to a tip from artist and long time pal Ian Wright, I have a piece in the Secret 7″ show at Somerset House.

Which title I chose, or which sleeve I designed, I cannot tell – thats the secret !  Click here for more from Somerset House & here for more from Secret 7″
