‘Oasis - Be Here Now’ is an iconic giclée print of the album’s front cover by original band photographer Michael Spencer Jones. Each is an edition of 195 signed by the artist.
Shot at Stocks Hotel in Hertfordshire, the former home of playboy magnate Victor Lownes, the cover of Be Here Now was Oasis and Michael Spencer Jones’ third album cover together following Definitely Maybe and What’s the Story Morning Glory?.
The Rolls Royce submerged in a pool was guitarist Bonehead’s idea – as an homage to Keith Moon. It’s also a fitting focus to a portrait of a band known for their rock n roll antics and debauched lifestyles. Spencer James says much alcohol was consumed during the shoot and by evening time the shoot had become unmanageable, hence a day time shot being chosen in the end!
Be Here Now is another slice of rock n roll history from Michael Spencer Jones and a must have print for Oasis fans, Nineties fans and lovers of iconic album covers.
