The Only Ones
Planet tour (1978)

Back to Gallery

One of the most perplexing (and biggest) posters of the new wave era, this silkscreen masterpiece features a ’50s sci-fi typeface that the band never used in any other context, a dinosaur that has no known connexion with the music and a strong but unglamorous poker hand. What any of it means is anyone’s guess, but it’s a striking – if arbitrary – collection of images.

Artwork Kavanagh; 30.5 x 41 inches, 104 x 77cm
