Whoopeeee!

Hands up who knew Ralph Steadman did the artwork for The Who’s 1966 single, ‘Happy Jack’? The guys at Pavement Licker did. So they went and nervously asked if he’d be up for painting the test pressing of The Who’s 2019 studio album, WHO. And just look at what he came back with. Thank you Ralph!

This unique artwork was created by Ralph Steadman using acrylic, ink, cigarette paper packet and collage and is personally signed by him..

And it can be yours! There is only one of these in the whole world and that’s what we’re offering to you. The complete item consists of two vinyl test pressings and two card sleeves all decorated by Ralph Steadman in his inimitable style and signed by him. Follow this link to find out how you can win this fabulous artwork. But hurry – the auction ends on June 5th at 6.15pm BST.
