His art always intrigues me... but I'll pass.

I haven't liked all of his work but I rather like this one. Very colourful and symmetrical. He has a bit of a cyberpunk lean in many of his posters which I like.

This one grows on me the more I look at it. Plus the cowboy hat on what arguably is either just a robot or a robot wearing headphones, kinda feels very Westwood-y which makes me chuckle.

With the pyramid in the front which could perhaps be doubling as a grain store - now opened up with "grain" pouring out containing the "Foo Fighters".

I like his work on the whole, especially this one, but I think the Milton Keynes Bowl posters suffered for being 50% of a larger image.

It definitely contains elements open for interpretation - are the rockets continuing the robot/sci fi theme or is it because this gig 'launched' their live return. You see a grain silo, you could also see it as the the Pyramid Stage. What with the tents bottom left & Glastonbury Tor bottom right.

I was wondering the same thing. On twitter he's says it's because he's an idiot. My guess is it was probably a test print or maybe one that was damaged and he was just making a funny reference to there's not many left. About 30 mins ago he twitted there are only 4 left.

I actually bought one on Monday. Don't really know why since until now I have only bought posters from gigs I have been to... I guess I just like it.

I'm liking that launching theme idea - that really works. And yes of course the Pyramid certainly also depicts Glastonbury, making the tents etc double down on that theme. Of course you can add a solid hook into Obelisk Airlines as well there.

In fact you can even drive yourself out of your mind crazy and recall these images from 22 years ago... and ask what is the significance of everything now being upside down?






And (as with the posters I've found I love the most) the more I look the more I see... there is a curly headphone cord coming out of the left can (RHS as you view) that wasn't there yesterday.

And WFT is that Stonehenge on the right at the bottom or what? I thought no that's crazy - though it is only 50 miles away.

The snake has me puzzled - it was just a head at first - now I'm pretty sure I see its body left and right from beside each ear going down (in yellow and green segments). There's something obvious there that Im missing that will probably be a Oh FFS of course moment lol.

I tried really hard to leave this alone but I failed. Unlucky number 13 was too much to resist.

In the flesh - Frome Artist Print beside 13/150 gig poster. Identical except for the markings.

Very nice! Is the A/P embossed? According to Millward it should be but I haven't seen it yet.

Cheese & Grain Artist Print has arrived. Yes it is embossed! It was difficult to find because it's on the back. Not sure if the original gig version is embossed but the A/P definitely is.

Ha I read your question the other day and promptly forgot to look. Of course having not had a reason to look I noted they were identical except for the AP versus number - and was wrong because it's all on the back. That's a nice little extra to tell them apart.
