Barney Bubbles (Reasons To Be Cheerful exhibition)

Paul Gorman has put together a brilliant book about the artist Barney Bubbles. A special exhibition featuring some of Barney's work is being held at The Chelsea Art space run by Donald Smith. Bubbles designed logos for NME magazine, Strongbow Cider and The Blockheads. He worked a lot for Stiff records and Elvis Costello. He also directed pop videos including the classic Ghost Town video by The Specials. The private view party/book launch was attended by Humphrey Ocean, Mick Jones, Nick Lowe, and Jerry Dammers.
