11. Lord John
Lord John was a shop that sold mainly mod-style clothes in the 1960s. Lord John was distinctive because of the mural by Binder, Edwards and Vaughan that was painted on the outside walls. The pop art collective painted murals on houses, designed furniture, and customised cars and other objects, including Paul McCartney’s piano and the car seen on the cover of the Kinks’ Sunny Afternoon EP from 1966.
Here Dudley Edwards talks about the events surrounding the painting of the mural, and his other work for musicians such as Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
