Our latest collaboration with the fabulous Uncut magazine brings you a collection of classic archive images from the world's most revered and popular rock artists.
As Editor John Mulvey mined through the archives, his selections form The Uncut Collection. Fully refreshed for 2018, the images are all limited to 495, and available from only £79/€119/$129 framed.
“It’s something of a cliché to claim that a great photograph can say more than a thousand words of the most erudite and vivid prose; every picture, we’re reminded, tells a story. But, looking through our new collection of Sonic Editions pictures, it feels a pretty salient point to make. For here are images of Nick Cave, Kurt Cobain & Jimi Hendrix, to name a few, that capture the energy and often mystical charisma of great musicians. It’s in the way they hold their guitars, the way they coolly appraise the camera. There’s an intangible atmosphere which is critical to our love of these men and women, and to the enduring potency of their music.”
John Mulvey, Editor, Uncut.
Completely refreshed and revised, the collection features images from some of the most famous events in rock history from unseen Beatles pictures, or iconic shots of Joy Division, Oasis, The Smiths, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits and more.
There is a 'Who's Who' of rock legends spanning the eras including famous Stone Roses in paint, classic Tom Petty or Prince, early Rolling Stones, the Sex Pistols' last concert or chilled Stevie Wonder.
