Hapshash and the Coloured Coat. The poster Mystical Pantomimes 1968 The Incredible String Band was designed by Michael English. Also known as a member of the design group Hapshash and the Coloured Coat. In the late 1960s they created psychedelic posters for many of the English bands of the time. The artist team decorated and advertised Nigel Waymouth‘s King’s Road boutique Granny Takes a Trip. They also designed their famous billboards for concerts held at the UFO Club and Saville Theatre and for underground magazine Oz. Their influences came from the decorative and eroticised designs of Art Nouveau. Combined with the melting rainbow colours of LSD visions and pop art inspirations from the post-war media, traces of Disney, horror movie monsters and comic book characters and can often be seen hiding amongst the images.
