Our good friend Josh Cheuse just sent us the a link to his new boxset, Rockers Galore, which is available at Other Criteria. Josh has captured so many moments in music history over the last 20 years. He has photographed Run DMC, LL Cool J, The Clash, Oasis, Big Audio Dynamite, and he even shot one of our favorite Beastie Boys videos Hold it Now, Hit it. And this is just scratching the surface.
Here’s what you get…..
” Rockers Galore contains 14 C-type prints (36 x 28 cm each) housed in a collaged shoe box with men’s medium American Apparel t-shirt, mix tape, 7 badges. Named after The Clash’s song of the same name, the collectors’ compendium Rockers Galore creates an edition out of Josh Cheuse’s remarkable intimacies with the music world over more than 20 years, and is compiled here in a format typical of a music fanatic’s hoarded collection. Housed in a limited edition, collaged shoebox are a series of 14 black-and-white and colour photographic prints taken from the iconic Rockers Galore publication; 7 fan badges; a mix tape of tracks ranging from Niger Blues by Desert Rebel to Pieces Of What, MGMT and a gold-printed t-shirt drawn from one of Cheuse’s photographs of Sightsee MC. ”
