Dave King

I’m absolutely gutted to have to tell you that Dave King, who designed the Crass symbol in 1977, has died. He was a bloody good mate and I’ll miss him.

My thoughts and arms reach out to Dionne, his soulmate of many years. But we can all take comfort in the knowledge that a part of Dave is emblazoned on people’s bodies all over the world.

See you later Dave. You’ll never be forgotten. Here’s to you mate.

Exhibition of Dave King in 2013 at Needles And Pens to compliment his book ‘Secret History Of The Crass Symbol’

Three Dimensions Of Sound @ 100 Club, London 15th December 2018

Only 4 weeks to go before Slice Of Life (postpunk kitchen sink music that kicks you in the gut) hits the stage with The Cravats (a sax-riddled dada punk combo) and Rubella Ballet (a powerful hit of vibrant colour in the punk world).
Limited signed posters, designed by The Shend, will be available at the gig.

Here’s a selection of some of his superb black & white photos.

I love the way Simon captured the light.
