For our new series of exclusive prints, THE THE have teamed up with Mark Perronet, who designed and printed these screenprints at Atom Gallery in London. Mark (print maker and co-owner of the gallery) had previously collaborated with Andy Dog, Matt’s late brother and designer of many of the group’s early sleeves. Utilising the old analogue technique of screenprinting, visual elements of The Comeback Special tour have been combined to create these vivid new designs. Each of these four new posters are hand-numbered, embossed with the THE THE logo and signed by Matt Johnson.
This screenprint creates an interplay between lyrics from ‘Slow Emotion Replay’, the cover photo used for The Comeback Special, a film still of all the band in silhouette and rendering of clouds from the pages of Andy Dog’s sketchbooks.
