Psychedelic Renegades

Psychedelic Renegades covers the period 1969-71 and features the photo session with Mick Rock in and around Syd Barrett’s London flat which culminated in the cover for his first solo album The Madcap Laughs, and a further session at Syd’s family home in Cambridge. Not only does this exquisite book reproduce in the highest quality, for which Genesis is renowned, some of the most famous images of Syd Barrett, there is also a wealth of images which have never before been published. Many have not even been previously printed up from the original historic negatives.

‘Images and eye-witness accounts of a golden age which will never return.’ La RepubblicaMick shared a personal friendship with Syd which began in the mid-Sixties when they met in Cambridge and flourished when they both lived in London, where at one point they shared a flat. One of Syd’s closest friends, the artist Duggie Fields, writes frankly and with humour about his friendship with Syd. In his perceptive text he describes life in the Earl’s Court apartment which he shared with Syd and where the Madcap shots were taken in Syd’s famous bedroom with the striped floorboards.’We were psychedelic renegades exploring an inner landscape where everything was turned upside down. We had penetrated the looking glass and were living in a parallel dimension where everyone was beautiful and spiritually free.’ Mick Rock

Genesis is proud to announce the official limited edition book crafted to celebrate the enduring success of one of the world’s greatest rock bands. Presenting the photographs of Mick Rock, original text by Brian May, Mary Austin and Mick Rock and featuring quotes of the period from Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon.

New Beats: ‘This exquisitely produced photo book … containing outtakes, test Polaroids, and other previously seen snapshots that might even surprise die-hard fans who thought they’d seen everything.’

Queen were the rarest of breeds: both genius in the studio and utterly brilliant performing live. A potent, magical mixture that has won them fans the world over. Such is their success, Queen form part of collectors’ so-called ‘Mighty Three’. Along with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, no other bands’ recordings and memorabilia are so highly sought after.

It is therefore fitting that Genesis follow their acclaimed Beatles and Rolling Stones titles with a limited edition tribute to a band captured in Mick Rock’s lens at the explosive moment between obscurity and world domination.Uncut: ‘Rock’s pictures of Queen’s breakthrough gig at Imperial College in 1973 are just some of the rare and unseen images collected in Killer Queen…’

Brian May: ‘Looking back, it is obvious that Mick was a master of his art very early on. His pictures speak louder than words. The images in this book stand up fresh and untarnished by time.’

Killer Queen is a limited edition book of only 2,500 numbered copies worldwide signed by Brian May and Mick Rock.

“Simply beautiful” Elle (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), April 2003
“You’re a fool to miss out” Mojo, April 2003

“An extravagant coffee-table book that collects Mick Rock’s photographs of the chameleon rock star as Ziggy Stardust … there is more than enough for both the casual Bowie fan and the obsessive.” The Observer, January 2003″The closest we’ll ever get to a straight-up Bowie autobiography – but who’d ever want anything straight-up from Bowie?” Rolling Stone, September 2012
