It’s a mongrel. Neither monograph nor memoir, ‘Snaps, Crack & Pop!’ is something in between. Utilising the rock posters of Skull Printworks and graphics of Red Eye and Black Eye Records, the book documents the unusual career path of designer and reluctant record executive, John Foy. It’s a personal journal that traverses his experiences in the original 70’s Punk era, legendary record stores, trading 60’s psychedelic posters, as well as more recent exploits.
With humour as weapon of choice, Foy establishes facts and dispels myths, as he interweaves his experiences with sociological observations of the times.
Along with notorious performers Thug, familiar entities like The Cruel Sea, Clouds, Steve Kilbey, Beasts of Bourbon, Deniz Tek and Kim Salmon - are revealed in a wealth of previously unseen images. Specially featured photographers include: Tony Mott, Linda Nolte, Geoff Aitken, Tom Takas, Kim Sandeman, Russell Kilbey and Stephen Best – amongst others. Rich in colour throughout, the visuals of ‘Snaps, Crack & Pop!’ have been brilliantly realised by former Red Eye art director Jim Paton. It’s a book like no other.
