The Rock Series: No Means of Escape (Nazareth) mug by Rodney Matthews

Regular price £12.00 GBP Sale

Rodney Matthews Studios is proud to present the "The Rock Series" of mugs, featuring high gloss reproductions of Matthews' iconic album covers.  

This particular mug features the image No Means of Escape.  In 2014 Matthews was asked to design the cover of a DVD for Scottish rock band Nazareth.  Matthews' brief was to create something similar to the No Mean City album artwork that he produced for the band some 35 years earlier, back in 1979!  The character from No Mean City was fondly named 'Friendly Fred' by the band.  It seemed only natural for the new artwork, No Means of Escape, to feature 'Son of Fred'.

The DVD, released in October 2015, combines both a live set, Live at Metropolis, and a documentary, Made in Scotland.  Matthews attended the live gig in November 2014, at the famous Metropolis Studios in London, where he also exhibited his artwork.  Recounting the gig, he says:

'I was privileged to watch from both the front row and the recording studio itself, as well as to have given an interview which appears on the DVD.
