New exhibition celebrates album covers from 80s and 90s

The 80s and 90s was an era that changed the face of British music.

The so called Manchester scene gave birth to bands like the Happy Mondays, Joy Division and The Stone Roses.

But it was not just about the sound, it was about the image too.

That image is now being celebrated at an exhibition at the Movie Poster Art Gallery in London.

Kathy Harcombe reports.

John Robb, music journalist and Julian Morey\designer, "Hallucienda" contributed to this report.
