In Pictures: Imagine waking tomorrow and all music has disappeared

In Pictures: Imagine waking tomorrow and all music has disappeared

"WHAT I do is vandalism and not street art,” Bill Drummond said after this latest handiwork appeared on the Runcorn Bridge.

"What I do has negative value and has no aesthetics. It has more to do with OCD than creativity. It is a habit that I have had since I was 14 and wanted to write the word FUCK down the side of my school in Corby (full account here).

"I was not able to get it done then and have spent the rest of my life trying to make up for it."

The statement: "Imagine waking tomorrow and all music has disappeared" has appeared painted across and under bridges spanning the globe, wherever a performance of the now expired choir, The 17, has taken place. Very often this has been in the local lingo/script.

The latest outing, in this glamorous Mersey location, coincides with the last ever performance of The 17 which took place here, in Liverpool, at the end of April. You can read all about it here.
