Friday Is Rock'n'Roll London Day: #PinkFloyd at The V&A @V_and_A Their Mortal Remains


Friday is Rock'n'Roll London Day! Join the Rock'n'Roll London walk this (and every Friday) afternoon at 2:00p.m meeting at Tottenham Court Road Station



DC Editor Adam writes…



Ever since David Bowie Is… at the V&A in 2013, there is a sense that we are in something of a golden age for music-related museum shows

Last year's Rolling Stones show at the Saatchi was a killer. And with yesterday's news from the press launch at the V&A for the Pink Floyd exhibition, Their Mortal Remains (opening 13th May 2017), it looks like the trend is set to continue.

Yesterday's publicity event was full of exciting announcements – not least that the UFO Club, the Tottenham Court Road venue where the Floyd became the de facto house band of the underground scene here in the capital, is to be recreated for the show.

I was personally very pleased to hear that entry to the exhibition space will be through a replica of the battered old Bedford van in which the young Floyd toured the country. Why so pleased? Because the van makes a cameo appearance in my Rock & Roll London Comic Book starring Pink Floyd…



The page above is taken from the free six-page sample download of the Pink Floyd Rock'n'Roll London Comic. You can download it HERE.

The full 20-page version is available for download HERE (99p) and the print version is available HERE (price £3).

It's also available on the Rock'n'Roll London Walk this afternoon at 2pm and also at Eisner Award-winning comic book store Orbital Comics in Great Newport Street WC2



On the 17th June I'm leading The Pink Floyd London Walk - a walking tour of Pink Floyd's London which ends at The V&A where the exhibition is taking place.
