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
DAVID BOWIE Trinity One – A Tribute To Andy Warhol (1998 official Mainman colour photomontage featuring 3 images of Bowie as himself & Warhol, repeated 4 times & reproduced in the spirit and style of Warhols famous silkscreen popart work of the 60’s. This superb piece of art was commisioned & issued by Mainman using images from their archives. It measures approximately 23″x23″ & is printed on canvas mounted on a wooden frame. It is hand numbered out of just 20 copies. See ‘more info’ for further details..).
REM Fan Club Christmas Packs (Every Christmas since 1988 REM rewarded members of their official fan-club with special, exclusive singles packaged with a range of gifts including Christmas cards, calendars, stickers and coasters – unlike many bands REM really went the extra mile as these exclusive items testify. This extremely rare set comprises of ELEVEN of those packs dating from 1999-2010 [with 2001 the only one missing], each one is COMPLETE including mailers, and are inMINT condition [a couple of the mailers fasteners have spilt, that’s all]. A RARE opportunity to own all of these highly desirableitems!!)
THE SMITHS Promotional Poster (Very rare official 1985 UK Rough Trade unfolded promotional poster, measuring a huge 38″ x 26″. Superb black & white shot of the band taken in Montmartre, Paris, the poster was used for promotion at the time of the Meat Is Murder album release in early 1985. The item has never been folded or displayed and has remained in storage for 32 years! This is only the second one we’ve ever seen and, needless to say, framed would look superb).
