A private collection of The Smiths indie rock band memorabilia and James Bond movie posters

ShowHide Auction Info

Fans of the 1980s Manchester indie band The Smiths will have the rare opportunity to bid for a collection of memorabilia. This nostalgic collection is the result of years of collecting by one Devon man and includes original press and concert posters, ticket stubs, tour programmes, prints and other promotional material.

Auctioneer Paul Keen says “this a great collection and should appeal to the many of us who continue to enjoy the music of what was probably the most important band to emerge from the British indie music scene of the 1980s”.
