Brian Wilson Secret Gig


Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Thursday, July 02, 2009

Brian Wilson is to play a secret intimate acoustic set this Thursday, to mark the launch of a new collector’s book and print set published with Sir Peter Blake based on recent album That Lucky Old Sun.

The cloth-bound hand-numbered box set of original collages by iconic artist Sir Peter Blake is published by Genesis Publications and also contains reproduced handwritten sheet music and lyrics for the album track “Midnight’s Another Day.” Their accompanying numbered book is hand-signed by both authors, Wilson and Blake.

As Brian prepares to tour Europe and North America in 2009, this fine art boxed book and print set will launch with just 1,000 copies available worldwide. Described by Brian as “a spiritual record”, it includes 12 exclusive new prints created by Peter, presented as numbered, fine art serigraphs.

The series of original collages draw their inspiration from the music of Brian Wilson’s new masterpiece, offering a moving tribute to Southern California and a celebration of Brian’s life and career. Sir Peter Blake comments, “It is extremely satisfying to bring the California that Brian sees to the page. That Lucky Old Sun is a ‘collage of sound’ which I’m very happy to make visual.”

The pioneer of “Pop Art”, Sir Peter Blake is an elected member of the Royal Academy, an associate artist of The National Gallery and, in 2003, more than forty years after his first solo exhibition, was knighted by Her Majesty The Queen for services to fine art.

That Lucky Old Sun by Brian Wilson and Sir Peter Blake – the signed, handmade limited edition box set of 1,000 copies is available only through Genesis Publications; www.genesis-publications.com. Tel +44(0)1483 540970. Pre-publication Price: £900.
