Lynott, Townshend & Weller get Gorillaz’d!
Liam Gallagher’s clothing line Pretty Green has joined forces with Tank Girl/Gorillaz man Jamie Hewlett to design three limited edition T-shirts to benefit Teenage Cancer Trust.
With a white guitar as the stand-out symbol, the designs created by Hewlett depict classic guitar poses inspired by three rock idols: Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott, Pete Townshend of The Who and ‘modfather’ Paul Weller.
Hewlett, who has a long-standing relationship with the charity, is most famously known as the comic book artist and creator of Tank Girl and co-creator of virtual band Gorillaz. He created the now iconic logo for Teenage Cancer Trust’s annual concert series at the Royal Albert Hall.
Pretty Green has a long-standing relationship with Teenage Cancer Trust. In 2011 they designed and sold the Tambourine limited edition T-shirt which was a huge success. Liam Gallagher was delighted to personally present a cheque for an epic £40,000 to the charity. Gallagher has performed at Teenage Cancer Trust’s concerts at the Royal Albert Hall both in Oasis and latterly Beady Eye.
T-shirts cost £55 and all proceeds will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust. The T-shirts are available from November 4 in our Carnaby Street, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham stores also online at Pretty Green.com
