About This Item

London: Rough Trade, 1981. Vintage UK poster for the 1981 release of the Virgin Prunes' first EP, "Twenty Tens." Distributed by Rough Trade and released on the Baby Records label in the UK, humorously referenced here with the phrase "Buy Buy Baby" (also a sly anti-capitalist dig, consistent with the band's leftist bent).

Formed in 1977, Irish post punk band the Virgin Prunes gained a significant cult following for their avant-garde, theatrical performances. The band disbanded in 1986 after the departure of front man and songwriter Gavin Friday, with the remaining members continuing to perform under the name The Prunes until 1991.

12.25 x 16 inches. Very Good plus, with some light creasing, rubbing, and edgewear.
