Earl Brutus

Earl Brutus were the other side of 1990s Britpop – uncool Britannia, chaotic pub-glam rock. I saw them play on a small boat in Chelsea Harbour, they let off fireworks on stage. Scott King did the sleeve art for Tonight You Are The Special One, and King’s graphics from this promo were inspired by his and Matt Worley’s Crash! project. The first time I visited Michael Place (from BUILD,) this song was playing in the background. There’s a secret sect of graphic designers devoted to Earl Brutus.
