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
TIN MACHINE Live (Extremely rare 1989 UK FULLY AUTOGRAPHED EMI 8-page 11″ x 8½” newspaper style tour programme which unfolds twice to reveal a superb 22″ x 17″ montage of black & white photographs of David and the band. The front cover shows a small amount of light discolouration/staining and has been signed by David Bowie, Reeves Gabrels, Tony Fox Sales and Hunt Sales in black and blue marker pen. This also comes with a ticket stub for the gig at the Forum, West Lothian on 3rdJuly 1989 – this looks stunning and deserves to be framed & displayed).
STIFF LITTLE FINGERS Inflammable Material (Super rare original 1979 UK 24.5″ x 18″ poster issued in very small quantities to promote their debut album. It’s a fantastic angled image of the album sleeve with all red background and ‘Available Now’ text with the Rough Trade Records address in the bottom left-hand section. The thin paper stock has survived remarkably well, the only evidence of wear is four tiny pin-prick holes in each corner. The poster has been folded but has been kept flat, not rolled – it’s in incredible condition for a forty-two year old item. As a vintage punk artefact it doesn’t get much better – Inflammable Material was the debut album by Stiff Little Fingers, it was the first album released on Rough Trade Records [Cat. ROUGH1] and the 202 Kensington Park Road address was Rough Trade’s first home between 1976-1982. An amazing, near impossible find nearly half a century on and comes highly recommended).
THE JAM Beat Surrender ’82 (Rare original 1982 UK 34″ x 24″ promotional-only poster for the bands last ever UK tour, printed by the ‘Hastings Printing Company’. This superb poster features large pink lettering with black & white graphics aboveUK tour dates for November/December 1982- a stunning piece of punk/new wave/mod/Paul Weller history! See ‘more info’ for further details).
