Review

From the minute Sir Peter Blake drops the needle on his yellow vinyl Brian Wilson LP, Getting’ in over My Head, this survey of the great pop artist’s work jumps to a rock ’n’ roll soundtrack. But then what did you expect for an artist whose intent was to have a 16-year-old listening to Elvis look at one of his pictures and hear and see them both in the same way?

Bob Geldof, Paul Weller, Suggs and Noel Gallagher give entertaining insights into what it’s like to work with Blake, and the man himself looks back with wry detachment over a career that put modern British art on the map.
