My auld friend Nina very kindly asked me if I would do the cover for her forthcoming book Jeunesse Brulée, due out in the Spring through a French publisher. The display type is Bassish and the illustrations are of Nancy Spungen, Nico, Michèle Breton and Peter Doherty. It’s still very much a work-in-progress because, not least, I don’t really know what Michèle Breton looks like and there aren’t many clues on the unternet. File under Red Crayon Faction.

Those were the days my friend… Stills from the Non-Stop Picket of the South African Embassy, for the release of Nelson Mandela and all political prisoners in Apartheid jails, in Trafalgar Square, London from 1986 to 1990, and a handful from recent years too. Pictures by Deirdre H, Rikke N, Simon M, Richard R, Sian N, Nicki J, Jules C, Gavin B, Mark F, Paul M, Brassett and me and countless others. RIP Norma Kitson, David Kitson, Steve Kitson, Rene Waller, Debbie Hall, Hermina and doubtless more. Davni Chasy performed by Peter Solowka and the Wedding Present, thanks again fellers, always a pleasure.
Turns out this piece of jive is available at the ICA bookshop. Who knew? Not me… but I feel sort of temporarily complete somehow
