Memorabilia has always been a big part of the music world, going back right back to the advent of record shops. Whether it was promotional only material that was distributed by labels, or weird and wonder items manufactured by the bands or labels for general sale, they make for nice collector’s pieces and can really finish off a collection.
We see all kind of memorabilia pass through our hands and below are just a few of the highlights that we have in stock at eil.com
JOY DIVISION A History In Cuttings (Mid 80’s UK 160-page 21cm x 30cm paper book binded by two thick staples and features of extensive collection of photocopied music paper and magazine cuttings from different countries, with a pictorial discography, complete lyrics and a gig / tape guide, yellow text cover. This copy has seen some minor discolouration over the years and only faint foxing on the front cover, however there it shows very little wear and the inside pages are intact and itremains in superb condition. A fantastic addition to any Joy Division and New Order collection).
QUEEN Bohemian Rhapsody (Impressive free-standing French instore promotional display for the 2019 DVD and Blu-Ray release of the acclaimed Queen biopic starring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. This ingenious display is in fact a foldable oval cylinder and stands 2 metres tall (80 inches) and approx 60cm wide (24 inches) – shown here beside Frank the Robot to give it some scale! Inside the display is a series of elastic bands which keep tension on the internal framework, allowing the display to stand freely but also to be collapsible for storage and transport. Clever stuff!)
REM Monster Roly Poly Bop Bag (1994 US promotional-only bright orange 3-foot inflatable ‘bop-bag’ featuring black ‘monster’ picture on one side and black artist/title on the other side, with lower water-filled section for the ballast, similar toa punch-bag. Also comes with fold-out instruction sheet. A superb, and interesting piece of R.E.M memorabilia).
