This poster print shows how Elvis Costello & The Attractions' superb 1979 album 'Armed Forces' might have been advertised in the early 1960s (anachronism alert!). It's a brand new piece of vintage pop memorabilia (double anachronism alert!)
The print takes the layout and the text of an existing sixties car ad and changes it into a jewel of punk/new wave publicity, complete with overturned toy digger for that extra touch of anarchic pop zing.
Have a read of the text in the ad and you'll see how the original has been turned into something surreal and ideal for the album.
