The (Pink) Flamingo Club Wardour St Poster Paper Tissue Blitz

The Flamingo Club on 33-37 Wardour street is famous for its integral role in developing British Blues and Ska music in the UK. One of the earlier clubs, running from 1952  to 1967. Favourite hangout of Christine Keeler & co. Later on The Stones and manger Andrew Loog Oldham, The Beatles, Hendrix, Georgie Fame etc….

Prior to closure in 1967, it went through one final psychedelic incarnation as the Pink Flamingo.

This poster from November features “Freak-Beat” band, Paper Tissue Blitz who produced one excellent & rare single Boy Meets Girl b/w Grey Man for RCA Victor also in 1967.

Condition: The poster is crudely silk screened on yellow poster stock. The red ink is really thick. There is also a test “pull” on the reverse. The top right hand corner has been torn off. Regardless, a very rare example of literally a homemade gig poster. Possibly by the band not the venue?

No Idea of Price : Offers?
