Feb 4th, 2020 : Bumprints

The Beatles were (are) a popular and influential band worldwide, no doubt about that.
As such, any place they performed would like to make a connection to the band to lure their fans to come by spend a little time...
and a lot of money.
Over the years this has expanded from venues to anyplace that can be proven they appeared live in public like Plymouth, England.



Quote:
The Chinese Theater in Hollywood Blvd is famous for its many footprints and handprints of celebrities set into concrete blocks, but where can you find bumprints? For that, you have to fly to the English coastal city of Plymouth, to the low limestone cliffs facing the English channel. It was here, in 1967, members of one of the most influential bands of our time sat on the grass to enjoy the cool ocean breeze.


Quote:
Half a century later, local metalsmiths, a father and son team who calls themselves Thrussell and Thrussell, unveiled four copper casts of the backside of the four-member-band and installed them on the Hoe, presumably at the exact spot where John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr sat. The artwork is made of a galvanized steel framework, coated in copper and includes prints of the bum, legs as well as palms. The new artwork enables people to sit in exactly the same positions as the Beatles did.


The era of fake news brings us fake bumprints.

Quote:
The moulds were prepared from the bottoms of Beatles impersonators, “The Fab Beatles”—a band established in 1991 as a tribute to the original Beatles. The band members sing like the Beatles, dress like the Beatles and even look like the Beatles.
David Quantick, a music journalist who helped unveil the sculpture stated: “What Plymouth has done is brilliant. It has brought a bit of fun, a bit of affection, a bit of art to the Hoe.”
I suspect the Hoe is not a gardening tool, or person of ill repute.

I guess there must be a spike extending downward, maybe even a cement block, to keep them from being stolen.

Hmm, I didn't think of that. Never crossed my mind someone would want them but I guess somebody would. Imagine how many farts have been applied to them from folks getting up and down.

Those things could become a fad replacing tombstones in cemeteries.

We'll have to wait for the u-tube compilation, it shouldn't take long with all the traffic that torn up the grass.

Good find glatt, that explains the odd description...

The people sitting on the bench, before them the bucolic vista of a calm sea, to their right, the four beatles and maybe 20 reporters, photographers, security, and fans. I know what I'd be looking at.
