"Terry Hall, singer of the Specials, one of my favorite bands, died of pancreatic cancer a little less than a year ago. This past Saturday, Musack did an amazing tribute to Terry with a bonkers lineup, including Horace Panter and Lynval Golding of the Specials, Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go’s, Fishbone, No Doubt (except Gwen), Tom Morello, Tim Armstrong and Jesse Michaels of Operation Ivy, Donita Sparks of L7, and others! I fell in love with the Specials in the summer of 1989, around the time I started listening to Operation Ivy and Fishbone, so to have members of all those bands celebrating Terry was incredible! I was also able to do the poster for the event based on a beautiful photo by Chalkie Davies. There are two versions of the print, one with the event lineup included and another that is a simpler tribute to Terry. The black and white print are editions of 325, but the show lineup print is a smaller quantity (edition of 300) because many were sold at the event, and all proceeds from those benefit Musack, an excellent music charity for kids. On a personal note, Terry came by my studio a couple of times, and we talked for hours. He was kind, thoughtful, and very open about life’s ups and downs. We talked about kids, mental health, insecurity, relationships, the therapeutic benefits of creativity, and many other heavy topics. He was a kindred spirit who I thought I’d be friends with for many years. This print was done with love… thanks for the tunes Terry!" -Shepard Fairey- OBEY
MUSACK's tribute to the legendary Terry Hall, the iconic singer of the Specials, is encapsulated in a visually arresting silkscreen print crafted by Shepard Fairey, renowned for his OBEY art movement. This piece, hand-pulled in 2-color on True White Speckletone Fine Art Paper, is a testament to the profound influence Terry Hall had on the music industry and its fans. The artwork is an exquisite fusion of pop art, street art, and graffiti art, embodying the very essence of Terry Hall's spirit and impact on the world. Released in 2023 as a signed and numbered limited edition, with only 300 prints in circulation, the artwork measures 18x24 inches. The artistry is profound, drawing inspiration from a poignant photograph Chalkie Davies took. Two versions of this print exist, one showcasing an event lineup and the other serving as a more streamlined homage to Hall. While the black and white prints are available in editions of 325, the one bearing the event lineup is more exclusive, with a count of 300, many of which were already acquired during the event. The backstory of this piece is equally captivating. MUSACK's heartfelt tribute event celebrated Terry's life, boasting a staggering lineup of eminent musicians, from Horace Panter and Lynval Golding of the Specials to Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go’s, Fishbone, and members of No Doubt, among others. Shepard Fairey's interactions with Terry add depth to the artwork. Terry, in his visits to Shepard's studio, revealed layers of his personality, discussing topics ranging from mental health to the therapeutic nature of creativity. Shepard saw him as a kindred spirit, and their interactions were laden with deep understanding and mutual respect. This artwork, hence, is not just an aesthetic masterpiece but a heartfelt tribute, reverberating with the essence of Terry Hall's life and legacy.
