Being Boring Poster

#1 Post by Spooke »

Hi everyone, when I was living at home many many years ago I bought a massive poster from the fan club.It was a shot of the cast of the Being Boring video and it was more than twice the usual poster size. Black and white and by Bruce Webber.

Does anyone have one? Or have a photo of one?

Cheers

I had one too which had pride of place on my wall at University. It was absolutely beautiful. I think I bought it at the Glasgow date of the Performance tour.

If I had it now I'd pay to have it beautifully framed rather than stuck to the wall with blu tack. I haven't a clue where it is now sadly. If anyone knows how to get hold of another one I'd be grateful.

Dear all,

I am particularly looking for one of these posters - ideally in mint condition. Anyone around willing to sell theirs?

Thanks for checking out.

Best,

Have been on the lookout myself for this ... but with no luck :(

Ended up going the DIY route - printed and framed a small version for my home office wall ... does the job for me.

I get a kick out of seeing the Technique album art among all the PSB stuff. It should seem out of place but it fits in very well.

I've got the image in newspaper form framed on my wall. It was used in the Discography campaign. NME Issue dated 9th November 1991. Had it originally at the time but it went brown so went on ebay recently and found it again. There are some copies on ebay still.
