Street Art Exmouth Style (Part 14)


Not that I wish to compare Exmouth to a Nazi death camp but hanging over the road leading into the town is a large banner proclaiming the names of various pop bands and pop stars from the 1980s: Thompson Twins, Bananarama, Howard Jones, ABC, Go West, Nik Kershaw, Five Star, Nick Heyward, Midge Ure, Brother Beyond, etc, etc.

One man's pleasure is another man's pain. One man's pop heaven is another man's pop hell.

Over the gate to the entrance of Auschwitz was the proclamation 'Arbeit Macht Frei', translated as 'Work makes you free'. Over the gate leading to Dante's Inferno was the inscription 'Abandon all hope, ye who enter here'.

I'm really not trying to compare and contrast, I'm really not.
