The Second Hand Heroes Film Special

The ‚Second Hand Heroes‘ Film Special by Alf Button

Apart from turning old film classics into amazingly beautiful record sleeves, Alf Button is the creator of various new visual interpretations of songs by bands like The Smiths, The Clash, The Jam, Llyod Cole and others.

His homages not only show familiar classics in a new light, but also give you the chance to recognise completely different facets of a work that you may not have seen before.

Enjoy the journey into cinematic history .. and by the way: if you like this selection, you might also be interested in the interview we had the pleasure of doing with Alf not so long ago – here on theecool.
