Duffy photo exhibition in Hastings

Around this time last year, we featured a photography exhibition by Brian Duffy, one of the 'Black Trinity' of snappers alongside with Terence Donovan and David Bailey. Well, that same exhibition has now moved to Hastings. Titled Duffy: The Third Man:  A Retrospective takes place at the Lucy Bell  Gallery […]

Super Size Two Tone artwork

Over on Retro To Go some months back we featured Super Size Art – large-sized artwork of classic singles. The original batch had a mix of eras and genres, but now it's been joined by Gangsters by The Special AKA on the Two Tone label. It's a replica of a […]

Christie's has got together with Blake's main print publishers – Kip Gresham, Waddington […]

London Calling book by Barry Miles

Big thanks to Ed for flagging up a book that has passed us by – London Calling by Barry Miles. Described as 'a major and definitive history of the counterculture' by a 'pre-eminent chronicler of the cultural underground' (the author was indeed a leading light on the 60s underground scene), […]
