Elbow, Seldom Seen Kid

£60.00

The Mercury Prize-winning The Seldom Seen Kid was named partly in tribute to one of Elbow’s close friends, Mancunian musician Bryan Glancy, whose sudden death, in 2006, left frontman Guy Garvey devastated. The album’s artwork remains one of Elbow’s most arresting; the first of two fruitful partnerships with local artist Oliver East, it’s a perfect example of the illustrator’s work: thought-provoking urban scenes that play with perspective and often leave you asking more questions than they answer.
