ACBA: Banksy for the Capoeira Twins
Bristol, UK: Blowpop Records, 1999
30.48 x 30.48 cm.
Edition of [approx.] 100
Banksy was reportedly friends with the owner of the the short-lived Bristol record label Blowpop Records and designed and executed this cover free of charge. The disk is a 12" single by the Capoeira Twins (Ian Stratford, Tim Hancock) and features the songs 4X3 and Truth Will Out.
A plain white cardboard sleeve features a spray-painted stencil depicting a matador shaking a cape at a muscle car with bull horns mounted to its roof. With fewer than 100 copies known to have been created, the disc is valued at around $4000 US.
4x3 can be heard on Youtube, here.
