Falling and Laughing
After making that rare honour (the culture page) with my first choice this week, a very good friend sent me this poster of an Orange Juice gig, and it got me to thinking. I've always been a bit of a collector of gig posters, some of which I had to let go and later regretted, even though they were much too big to have on display. I guess you are supposed to leave them behind, along with other flotsam and jetsum from your youth, but I'm thinking, in particular, of my wall-sized Steve McQueen tour poster and my (even more wall-sized) The Queen is Dead album sleeve poster, which I suspect were thrown out by my ever-loving mum; not to mention the lovely (again wall-sized) Coffee and TV promo poster, which I left in Finland - well, I did leave the country in either case, after all!
Has anyone at the Spill still got any interesting concert poster pics they'd like to share? I have quite a few - I will try to dig them out if I can although they are quite hard to track down. Love to see any which you do have.
