The highly talented Australian artist, Martin Sharp, worked mainly for the underground magazine Oz. This is his only poster for UFO but it is an extraordinary visual depiction of the power of music, in particular rock and rhythm and blues.
The Exploding Galaxy, founded by the kinetic artist David Medalla, was described in IT in October of that year as 'a kinetic confluence of transmedia creators: it exists as continuous contracting and expanding clusters of quaquaversal events. Dancers, poets, musicians, painters, these are the Exploding Galaxy...It is committed to the sensory activation of man's inner and outer environment'. Among the musicians it worked with were Arthur Brown, Graham Bond and the Soft Machine."
