Old School Dundee 1986


Design by AUA (Ardler United Artists)

"Design" on the wall at the back of where the Fire Station is now at the foot of Ardler (Housing Estate in Dundee) To the left of this was a great piece that said "Crime of the 80's"(Emulsion fill, spray outline from what I can remember) Hopefully we can track down that one.
Another one that I would draw endlessly from memory.


The Sentence is Death!
Bip 1986 (fairly sure these are both 86?)

Pretty Ambitious for the time, full colour illegal production!
Viewed in context at the time, these were amazing!

Design rocking the burners again. His stuff was quality. Great to see.

It'd be good if some old west coast types contributed some photos too, I know they're out there!

Double dope!
I think writeres were super ambitious at that time, because the limits seemed endless and the attitude would be 'why-not?' rather than 'how'.
That Death piece is classic
