After last week’s foray into skeletal monarchs, our eye was caught by these equally cadaverous lollipop people. The stickers have appeared all over town lately, and seem to be especially concentrated in the Holborn area.
Turns out it’s yet another example of using street art for advertising (is nothing sacred?). But it works. At least for suckers like us.
We followed the URL, which leads to the site of ‘Various’, a confusingly named duo who create claustrophobic, genre-spanning music. After listening to a few tracks, we were hooked and downloaded the album ‘The World is Gone’. Superb stuff. If only more marketing gimmicks featured rotting road-safety workers.
