The Strokes Signed Promo Poster with Manchester Ticket from 2001 - Rough Trade
The Strokes fully signed Rough Trade promo poster for the 'Hard To Explain' single, with attached ticket for their show at Manchester University Students Union, 21st June 2001. Julian Casablancas, Albert Hammond Jr, Nick Valensi, Nikolai Fraiture & Fabrizio Moretti have all signed the poster, with "To: Crocodile Records From: The Strokes" handwritten along the bottom with a small hand-drawn face. Crocodile Records was a mail-order shop and record label based in Manchester, UK that was owned and ran by Russel Taylor (an avid garage rock fan/supporter) from 1983 - 2019. This item was originally purchased from Omega Auctions. The poster was previously framed with ticket, and has rippling throughout the poster. There is also a water mark in the top corner as well as some edge-wear (see photos). The ticket has been attached to the bottom corner of the poster with double-sided tape. There are crease/fold marks on the ticket (see photos). The poster measures approx. 11"x17". Note that this will be shipped flat.
