Never Mind The Punk 45 is a mixed-media show featuring decollages from the forerunners of the punk rock’s movement, focussing on the debut 45” releases. Cutting back from the original sleeve artwork to show snippets of related material from the band’s back story, the images are made up of press cuttings, promo badges, and tickets along with other items.
Band included are Adam & The Ants, Buzzcocks, The Clash, The Damned, Ian Dury, Generation X, The Jam, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Stranglers, and X Ray Spex.
Also on display will be the work 100 Punks, a collage of 100 punk singles inspired by the original wall at Rough Trade that featured many a Punk record sleeve.
To coincide with this exhibition Mal-One released a limited edition 7” single as part of this years Record Store Day.
