liquidator

May 30, 2010

amazing artwork for the cover of the harry j all stars single “liquidator.” and check wikipedia for the harry j-skinhead-obama conspiracy theory!

This single became one of the anthems of the emerging skinhead youth subculture; together with other instrumental hits released in the UK through his own subdivision “Harry J” on Trojan Records, on a compilation album of the same name. During the 2008 United States presidential election, presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama campaign used the song “I’ll Take You There” by the The Staple Singers at the closing of his stump speeches on the campaign trail. The beginning of the song “I’ll take you there” features an introduction which was lifted from “The Liquidator”.
