Road to Nowhere – Screen prints re-imagining the titles of much loved songs and albums as the towns and places on road signs.
In the late 1970s times were a-changing. Punk was just about dead (long live punk) and the experimental sounds and political commentary of post-punk and new wave bands began emerging from the ashes.
In 1978 The Clash released their ska influenced (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais and Siouxsie and the Banshees released their debut single, Hong Kong Garden. 1979 saw the release of The Jam’s scathing The Eton Rifles and The Clash’s ominous London Calling. In 1981, against a backdrop of rising unemployment and social unrest, the apocalyptic and unforgettable Ghost Town by The Specials hit a national nerve and helped define an era.
