Normal History Vol. 545: The Art Of David Lester

Every Saturday, we’ll be posting a new illustration by David Lester. The Mecca Normal guitarist is visually documenting people, places and events from his band’s 35-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

David sent me a handful of old photos on Mecca Normal’s 35th anniversary last month. I added one of me stealing even more limelight in Hamburg, Germany, 1994, during our 10th year performing together! I’m pretty sure we felt like we’d been around a really long time at this point!
