Pop-art influenced Giclee print on fine art paper in a limited edition of 50 in each size. 

Originally a casino, by the 1970s the Rum Runner had become more of a conventional club, frequented by Birmingham music scene legends like Black Sabbath, Roy Wood and actors and staff from the nearby Central TV Studios. In the late 1970s the club was renovated by Paul and Michael Berrow, sons of the club's founder, based on ideas drawn from a visit to Studio 54 in New York.

In 1978 local band Duran Duran brought in a demo tape and were offered a rehearsal space and jobs around the club - with Keyboard player Nick Rhodes as DJ and John Taylor working the door. At the dawn of the 80's the club became the prime outside of London venue for the New Romantic movement and launched Duran Duran to international fame.

One of a series of art prints celebrating the legendary music venues of Birmingham. 

Each print is signed by the artist Dave Twist, himself a veteran of Birmingham's 1970s music scene. Dave attended the debut show of the 'classic' Duran lineup at the Rum Runner in July 1980.

Available in two sizes and shipped in a protective card tube, this print is unframed. 

This print is made to order and has an approximate production time of 10 days.
