Godspeed You Black Emperor

Another mock-up upgraded for 2020. This time it’s the poster I did for Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The first stab was… OK, but lacked the crusty, found-in-a-gutter aesthetic that was a key component of their early albums, where they combined slow burn instrumental rock histrionics with ‘found’ samples of street people preaching their mad gospels and bursts of radio static. I saw them play the Fleece & Firkin in Bristol, 1999, when their collective sonic wallop was sufficient to blow out the electricity.
