Founder member and bassist in the seminal post-punk ska band The Specials, Horace Panter has long had a parallel career as a gifted and distinctive visual artist.

Panter has been inspired to create exquisite oversized paintings of the cassette tape studio recordings made by some of the greatest and most influential rock and pop performers of the past forty years: from the Specials themselves and their peers, The Sex Pistols, Madness, The Jam, The Clash, Elvis Costello, Chic, David Bowie, and The Undertones, through to acts that have followed in their wake, including Nirvana, Pulp and Blur.

This collection brings together dozens of Panter's playful and poignant works of modern Pop Art, in which a seemingly everyday and ephemeral subject matter is transformed into iconic paintings.
