Another early work from the Project Mogwai series, dating back to 2008. I just missed out on the full explosion of punk, and only caught the exhausted aftermath, with Sid Vicious paraded as cartoon anti-hero and the street tribes mutating into mods, goths and metalheads. England was dreaming again, having heard the shrill alarm call of punk, only to roll over to the the other side of its foetid bed. This drawing/painting was done with brush and india ink and intended to look like something a teenage obsessive would have done in their bedroom in 1977, which was easy to do as I am obsessive by nature and no matter how old I get the teenage part of me still seems to win through, and as long as that continues then it could be argued that ‘punk’s not dead’ after all.
