Barney Bubbles

{feuilleton} also features an excellent article on the innovative British visual designer Barney Bubbles, real name Colin Fulcher (1942-1983). Mostly famously, Barney Bubbles was responsible for Hawkwind's psychedelic-science-fiction-Hell's-Angels-meet-Russian-Constructivism designs, but also for some new wave artists like Elvis Costello and Ian Dury. He also contributed to the UK underground magazines such as Oz, IT and Friends/Frendz.
