For some years Jon Langford, guitarist and vocalist with the Mekons, has been contributing a cartoon strip to "New Musical Express" and "The Los Angeles Times". Each week he bitingly portrays the foibles and pricks the pretensions of our favourite rock heroes. The strip has achieved a fair degree of cult status. This is the first collection of the strips to appear in book form: subjects range from Morrisey to Guns 'n' Roses, from REM to Nigel Kennedy.

Book Description Penguin Books Canada, Limited, Toronto, ON, Canada, 1992. Illustrated Card. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st. Great Pop Things was a comic strip by Colin B. Morton and Chuck Death (the latter a pseudonym for the musician and painter Jon Langford). It first appeared in Record Mirror in 1987, transferred to the New Musical Express in 1991, and was also published in LA Weekly. The strip was a satirical faux-history of rock and pop music. It lampooned many fashionable groups and singers of the time, as well as presenting the "stories" of established stars. Morton and Langford had a particular liking for rock stars of the 1970s, and presented multi-part histories of such luminaries as Led Zeppelin, The Sex Pistols, Bruce Springsteen, Frank Zappa and the Rolling Stones. One of their most featured characters was David Bowie, invariably referred to as "Dave" and depicted (even as a child) with a lightning bolt design on his forehead, similar to the make-up he wore on the cover of his Aladdin Sane LP. Unlike the real-life Bowie, "Dave" was shown to be particularly proud of his early single "The Laughing Gnome", which was described as "a mod anthem" and referred to at every opportunity.
