Spirit of Hapshash invoked for Lucy In Disguise

Lucy In Disguise poster by Nigel Waymouth and Tim Watkins

Within hours of mentioning Granny Takes A Trip and Lucy in Disguise (the new label from Lily Allen and her half-sister Sarah Owen) in the BBC Blast presentation, this beauty arrived in my in-tray – a poster for LID by Granny’s founder Nigel Waymouth with Tim Watkins.

As detailed in Chapter 10 of THE LOOK,  while he operated Granny’s in the 60s, Nigel joined forces with the late Michael English as Britain’s foremost psychedelic art/design team Hapshash And The Coloured Coat.

These days a prominent portraitist, Nigel collaborated with us on a fabulous line of t-shirts for THE LOOK PRESENTS a couple of years back. Congrats to him on invoking the spirit of Hapshash for the 21st century.

Interesting to note that Jeff Dexter was the dj at the The Look Presents bash you’ve archived. Any chance of passing on Jeff’s email address, as I want to find out when he first played a record back in 1975.

Love the site, by the way

Hello Steve
It’s an honour to have JD as a close friend; he also Djed at the Soho launch of the first edition of The Look in 2001 (alongside Jay Strongman, Don Letts, Count Indigo and Pippa Brooks.
