Thank you!

Here's another good one:

backstory via Guardian

...with the launch of a new Observer magazine imminent, the Observer Music Monthly, and with Blur lined up as our first cover stars, it seemed like a good idea to ask whether the guerrilla artist would help create something special for it (he had previously produced the artwork for their album Think Tank). Even then, Banksy was a shadowy figure, but a route was found to him, and so it was that one summer morning a minibus set off from London with two art directors, a photographer, me, Blur's PR and the artist.

The band were playing the Leeds Festival that evening, but when we reached the site, there wasn't the good sized wall we needed - so off we drove again. Within a couple of miles, we found a farm and an amazingly tolerant farmer and his wife, Steve and Jill Walmesley. Banksy got to work there on the side of a duck shed; the band drove over; Claudia, the photographer, shot them underneath a TV apparently being thrown out a window. The farmer's daughter, Lucy, and some of her friends turned up and had their photo taken with the group.

(...)

It turns out that Banksy had also tested his aerosol cans on a steel barn door. 'But then the barn was renovated and Steve was going to chuck the door in a skip,' remembers Lucy's boyfriend, David Smith.

'I rescued it because I liked the image - a girl with a television set - stuck it in our Fiesta, took it home and there it sat in our living room.' David, too, remained blissfully unaware of Banky's significance until a friend suggested he have the piece valued. He sold it for £32,000 at Bonhams last year.

Wow! Love these so much. How have I never seen them? And yes, Damon's Russel tee is fantastic. Imagine being that farmer... blur and Banksy! And eventually 32k.... :D

Yeah, farmer's daughter and/or her boyfriend sold this small piece visible in one of the photos - a girl with a TV - for 32k (or, according to other sources, for 38k), then the farmer himself cut out of the wall the main artwork - tv set thrown through a window - and tried to sell this huge, 2 meters high piece of concrete, but as far as know it isn't clear what happened to it. There was a third graffiti too.

And in the photos taken during Leisure tour (above) Graham wears Tank Girl tee :)

Oh my gosh! Can't believe I didn't notice that shirt till you pointed it out. Loooove Tank Girl. I often forget about how Jamie and Graham were such good mates years before Damon and Jamie were!

The pictures are very cool. But I think the photos by Olaf Heine must be from spring 1996. He is a very famous photographer from Hannover, Germany and he had propably a session with Blur just before the gig at the town on 18th March 1996.

Hard to say, the source of this date is Getty Images caption (Indie band Blur are photographed on May 5, 1998 in Hanover, Germany), I didn't think much about it. Haircuts do not help this time, or do they?
