The Leadmill

Recommended Posts

Anyone remember when this was I might have been still at school so it must have been about 1979/80 - I don't think the Leadmill had opened properly - I think this was some sort of fundraising night- wouldn't have got far on £2.00. Was it really promoted by Factory? Supported by UK Decay.

This is the gig your ticket is for Dunsbyowl

The one with support by UK Decay was later on.

Leadmill Posters 1980-92

You can see his exhibition in October at Yorkshire Artspace on Brown Street.

Further to the above, I can very highly recommend Martin Bedford's book. It's absolutely crammed with Leadmill posters from yesteryear; brings back a lot of memories - plus of course the poster artwork is superb.

I agree with the above commments of Vox and NHP on Martin's posterbook. Really good work. If you like the 60s US west coast posters of Freas, Kelly, and Family Dog etc you will also love these. I think Martin plans to do a reprint and a relaunch of the book sometime in the future.
