WIRE, PINK FLAG / CHAIRS MISSING / 154 / ON RETURNING

LP sleeves, 1977/1978/1979/1989, each 32.5 x 32.5 cm

“The sleeve was one of those lovely gifts. We wanted a neutral image and I’d done a rough of a big flagpole and a flag and nothing else. We’d done a gig in Plymouth and were walking along the Hoe and there it was. We all dropped to the ground and looked at it. When you lay on the ground there was nothing else to see, apart from the pole against the sky.” (Wire)
