Relive the anarchic spirit of Punk at the Museum of Brands this winter. Forty years since The Sex Pistols first exploded onto the Notting Hill music scene with their irreverent lyrics and distinctive sound in 1976 – a new show, The Graphics of Punk, presents the equally striking variety of graphic art created by these young rebels. On display will be some of the iconic record sleeves of the day, including the Sex Pistols’ God Save the Queen designed by art student Jamie Reid (1977), alongside posters that promoted each new release. The exhibition also includes record sleeves from The Clash, Buzzcocks and The Damned.
The Museum of Brands is a kaleidoscope of images and iconic brands, nestled in a charming mews located a stone’s throw away from Portobello Road.
