This is Pauline Amos’s re-interpretation of the Wings album sleeve for ‘Band On The Run’ (1973) and Kid Acne’s take on ‘Let It Bleed’ by The Rolling Stones (1969). They’re both part of the ‘Cover Versions’ exhibition that opens at the A Month of Sundays Gallery in Sheffield this Friday (10.09.10). Pauline’s contribution was also filmed as a performance painting, intercut with footage of the personalities on the original cover – James Coburn, John Conteh, Clement Freud, Denny Laine, Christopher Lee, Kenny Lynch, Linda McCartney, Paul McCartney and Michael Parkinson:
