The Dolls arrived in the UK at the end of 1973 and mortified 'whispering' Bob Harris, the old somnambulant host of The Old Grey Whistle Test. He called them 'mock-rock' live on air and stirred the kind of furore which would later greet the Pistols on the Bill Grundy Show. Michael Watts wrote in Melody Maker “the Dolls aren’t just chords and bar-lines, there’s something you sense, like a storm beyond the skyline.” They played the Biba Rainbow Room in London later that night and the following night, knocking the audience sideways with their sonic splendour and spangled spectacle. It was like everything you wanted from a rock‘n’roll band, blown up into a gloriously chaotic cartoon!
The poster is available in two sizes (A2 and A3) and celebrates the show at Biba in Kensington, London on 27 November, 1973. The unique design is a photo-montage by multimedia artist David Lloyd. The high quality inks and archival fine art paper combine to produce incredibly rich colours and detail with a light fastness guarantee in excess of 60 years indoor display life.
Please note: Due to worldwide shipping constraints, we are unable to sell our prints mounted and framed as illustrated.
Originally from the North East of England, David Lloyd is an alumni of Central Saint Martins and the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. He has exhibited at the Royal Academy and spent most of his life working as an artist, musician and composer on both sides of the Atlantic.
