The first incarnation of this image, seen somewhere below, was simply the bus against a coloured background; to which someone said – “it doesn’t say anything to me, it needs dreadys in the bus [sic].”
Me, I think that either as the Vdub bus alone or the band and the bus; either evolved, evolving or still just too unique to even be in the pool, it is, absolutely, positively, one of the coolest pieces of dready art I’ve ever done.
