This one was for Philip himself and we did it for a commissioned series of bus sides for Maxell Tapes, a major Japanese company back then. The first version was in black and white and used as a promotional poster for Maxell, the colour version was for the bus side had a copy line I wrote:
‘Maxell are the best, youknowharramean.’ I thought nailed Philip’s way of talking. I fell about laughing when I first saw it on a bus passing Grafton Street, where we had first met.
It was a commercial piece produced with Philip’s Philip was a bit pissed at me for this liberty but so many people came up to him and shouted over at him ‘Youknowwharramean!’ that he loved it and used to lay it on thick himself when he had a chance.
It was my gig but I negotiated and got for Philip, one large check for usage so everything ended in a laugh as he reminded me I was the only one who would have had the nerve to pull it off (putting that line in without telling him).
The poster was derived from my portrait on ‘Black Rose’ and was also used later for a Thin Lizzy Japan tour poster.
For me, this is the man himself; no one like him. I always laugh when I see it reproduced. Bet he does too.
