Iggy Pop's Jacket

When I was young there was a local Liverpool band called Those Naughty Lumps (1978-1980) that I was fond of. They were part of an explosion of creativity in Liverpool based around the now legendary Erics club (other bands from that grouping included Echo & the Bunnymen, The Teardrop Explodes etc - see the Pete Frame rock family tree for the full messy detail). 

Those Naughty Lumps put out a few tracks on 7" vinyl. One was the song "Iggy Pop's Jacket" which came out on Zoo records (Cage 002). The sleeve design was by Bill Drummond and Dave Balfe.

Here  is a piece of the illustration from the original artwork, cropped and recoloured in tribute to both Those Naughty Lumps and Iggy Pop's album Raw Power.
