Designed exclusively for John7Arts / Rock'n'Roll Redux by multimedia artist David Lloyd, an alumni of Central Saint Martins School Of Art and the Institute Of Contemporary Arts in London. Employing the Découpe (cut-up) technique in which written text is cut up and rearranged to create a different and perhaps unexpected new narrative, David has employed shards of lyrics to give discerning fans an opportunity to engage in 'discover the songs' beneath a foreground featuring an iconic and classic guitar. The Découpe concept can be traced back to at least the Dadaists of the 1920s, but was popularised in the late 1950s and early 1960s by writer William S. Burroughs and later employed by David Bowie, Kurt Cobain and Thom Yorke. Each unique Rock’n’Roll Redux design ©2020 David Lloyd.
Steve Jones - Sex Pistols: 1974 Gibson Les Paul Custom
The 1940’s pin-up stickers decorating Steve Jones creamy white 1974 Gibson Les Paul, were put there by its previous owner, New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain. It was also Syl who removed the original Gibson switch guard and scratch plate. Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren had briefly managed the Dolls in New York and brought the guitar back to London and gave it to Jonesy.

"Malcolm was managing the Dolls for a while and when he finished managing them, he brought the guitar back to England with him. I guess they owed him money or something and gave it to him as payment.”
