DR promo poster

  • Above: Diminished Responsibility promotional poster.
    The image is taken from an e-bay auction, August 2009, the item selling for £41-00
    The following was the description: "Large Card UK SUBS 1981/'82 - era promo poster for the "Diminished Responsibility" album. Measures 40" X 30" (101cm X 76cm). This is fully autographed by the band of the time - although the only signatures I can make out are Charlie Harper's & Nicky Garratt's. There are 2 additional autographs in the top left corner - one of which is by martin of Anti-Pasti, who were no doubt supporting the SUBS on the night - the gig was probably in Derby(?). Condition isn't great - a section of the bottom right is missing & there are various tears plus blu-tack residue etc."
