Music auction at Philips de Pury

Auction house Philips-de Pury will held a Music auction on Friday 10 December at 5pm in London. Vicious Vitamins went to the exhibition and particularly enjoyed the Alan Vega/Suicide memorabilia and a picture feature the three legends David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed. A number of rare items will also be auctioned such as a collection of 52 vynil covers designed by Andy Warhol (including the Velvet Underground banana cover), a picture of Joy Division front-man Ian Curtis by Kvin Cummins or some Black Flag gig posters designed by Raymond Pettibon.

On a similar topic, we were happy to discover (probably late, sorry...!) that Rizzoli released a new book about Joy Division featuring photographies of Kevin Cummins with foreword by writer Jay McInerney and text by Joy Division founder Bernard Sumner.
