The Special’s bassist turned acclaimed pop artist, Horace Panter, has designed an exclusive piece of art for music lovers at HMV. Commissioned by GPO Retro in partnership with Harrogate’s RedHouse Originals Gallery, Panter has designed a skin for GPO’s 12” vinyl case.
The vinyl case, designed to hold up to 30-35 LPs is exclusive to HMV.
One of the founding members of The Specials, providing the bass lines for songs like Ghost Town and Too Much Too Young, Horace Panter, aka Sir Horace Gentleman, studied art in Coventry and rediscovered his love of pop art when teaching. Much of his artwork taps into music and pop culture references, like the cassette artwork originally produced for the Cancer Trust. His artwork is now regularly exhibited across the UK and internationally.
Comfortably holds 30-35 records
