Old Poster


In the late summer of 1981 to coincide with the release of Snatch 3 an A2 poster was screenprinted. My design was heavily influenced by Theo van Doesburg's cover for the Dadaist magazine Méecano. It was around this time that I started recording with Michael Denton and much of the the execution of the poster (done at the Albany screenprinting workshop) and especially the colour selection was down to him. The pink and turquoise inks were subsequently used for the labels for Snatch 3. Here is the last known remaining example.

I think I have one somewhere. It might have all its corners.

Frame it - it will be worth a fortune one day - well at least ten pounds
