Poster for the Carnival Circus. Throbbing Gristle.

Poster for the Carnival Circus

London: Architectural Association, 1978. First edition. 11 1/2 x 16 1/2" flyer, offset printed on white paper stock.

The flyer for this ambitious celebration at the Architectural Association in London, notable for including Throbbing Gristle. There are at least 2 posters we've seen made for this event (and probably more by the acts). This is the poster issued by the AA, not the better known TG issued poster.

A recording of Throbbing Gristle's performance was released the following year as IRC 12.

Other acts listed on the flyer include Pat Fitzgerald, Amalgum, Simon Mozr Quintet, Rainbow Dance Orchestra, Bloo Lips, Medulla Quantras et al, as well as clowns, fireblowers, jugglers, a laser show, and "some very disreputable strippers both male and female."

Horizontal fold line, and some faint handling creases else fine. Item #29286

Price: $200.00
