A Solo Exhibition of Photographs by John Andow

During the mid-1970s, John Andow was taking evening classes at London College of Printing and working in a darkroom by day. His passion for both the new music and capturing images of this exciting period of musical transition meant that his nights were spent in dingy, smoke-filled pubs and clubs. At iconic venues including The Hope & Anchor, Dingwalls, The Round House and The Marquee, Andow saw the birth of bands including 999, The Stranglers and The Buzzcocks, as well as Elvis Costello’s first London gig.

Andow said: “Punk was a real fuel injection into the music industry and an exciting time to be an aspiring young photographer. Given the opportunity of exclusive photo passes into this new era of music, I couldn’t resist.”

John's Negatives have been stashed away unseen by the public in his attic since being featured in N.M.E and Melody Maker over 40 years ago. A rare and exciting archive of work from a seminal time in music.
