Scala Cinema

This is a programme from the old Scala Cinema at Kings X London. The month's screenings used to be presented on an A2 folded poster with amazing cut and paste collages like this on the front and details on the back. This is from Oct 1988 with highlights including a 'PREGNANT JUVENILE DELINQUENTS' triple bill (A taste of Honey, L-Shaped Room, Blue Jeans), several Herschell Gordon Lewis features and the regular Saturday all-nighter (ALL-NIGHT URBAN TERROR, ALL-NIGHT (VINCENT) PRICE FRIGHTS, ALL-NIGHT FEAR OF THE FUTURE etc).

More 80s Illustration

This is a comic strip which used to appear in the NME in the 1980s. I'm not sure who it is by, possibly Chris Long.

80s Illustrations

These scans are taken from the Christmas editions of the NME from 1986 and 1988, they made up the paper's Illustrated Songbook, which must have been an annual feature for a few years. Each illustration filled the whole page.
Included here are, Steven Appleby's illustration for The Smiths' 'Panic', Run's 'Everyday is Like Sunday' by Morrissey, Jill Mumford's 'Fast Car' by Tracy Chapman, Shaky Kane's 'Love Missile F1-11', and Andrew Crummy's illustration for The Pet Shop Boys' 'Opportunities' single.
