'Pictures of Matchstick Men' Status Quo - Morgan Howell Print

Catalogue No: SQUO001MOHO Category: Framed Prints Framed: Yes Artist(s): Status Quo

This is a limited edition signed print made from the original Supersize 3D painting by artist Morgan Howell. Morgan creates original paintings of classic seven-inch singles. This print is from his painting of the cover sleeve for the Status Quo’s 1967 single ‘Pictures of Matchstick Men'. It features the artwork with the following wording underneath

‘Pictures of Matchstick Men’ is the first hit single by Status Quo, released in November 1967. It reached number seven in the UK charts and number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming their only hit single in the United States. The song opens with a single guitar repeatedly playing a simple four note riff before the rhythm guitar comes in with chords and the drums and lyrics begin. Francis Rossi said about the song: “I wrote it on the bog. I'd gone there to get away from the wife and mother-in-law. I used to go into this narrow frizzing toilet and sit there for hours, until they finally went out. I got three quarters of the song finished in that khazi.”

This print is available in a limited edition of 75.

Our pictures show both the framed and unframed options plus the original Supersize painting that the limited edition print was made from.
