Peter Doig said the print is 'like a hand-painted poster, of the kind I made for my film club - "studiofilmclub" - in Trinidad.' For Desert Island Discs recently, Doig selected 'Want Fi Goh Rave’ by Linton Kwesi Johnson as one of his 8 tracks. 'It remains as fresh today as it was when I first heard it back in 1979.' It was in that year that Doig moved to London. 'I was very interested in Punk and particularly Post-punk music, and that was really the draw to come to London'.

Paul Stolper Gallery will kindly donate a percentage of the profits from sales of the print to the George Padmore Institute for the emergency building repairs appeal for urgent work to restore the Institute's building and help secure our future.
