Council Pop Alignment

Too many hip-hop albums got Pitbulls and Rottweilers on the cover; What do you know about the Border Collie and Persian Cat combo?? COUNCIL POP Lp (2003) – Back when the 24 hour Spar was pretty much the only thing on Abbeydale Road. Inspired by Alex Bartsch’s series, I went back today to capture this alignment. Now outside Pirate Ship with Picture House Social in the background. Original photo by Ian Newcomb. Rockin’ the NHS specs, thrift store baseball cap, my Granddad’s old body warmer and a pair of deadstock Adidas Grand Prix. Yes Mate!
