Welcome to the Bamalama movie & music online store. We have been established online for over 12 years with a gallery that you can visit in central London Monday to Friday and weekends by appointment, with a much larger selection of original, rare and unique music & movie posters as well as adverting art/exhibition posters and limited edition signed prints, also including a many framed items.

A recent introduction to the gallery is a choice selection of records/LP`s and a number of books and magazines.

We have been trading in posters and memorabilia for over 30 years and have supplied many bars and restaurants in the local area and beyond, one of the most famous being the Pheasantry Pizza Express in the Kings Road which was originally home to many artists and designers in the 1960′s. Over the years we have worked closely with major institutions such as the V&A - British Museums, Tate Gallery and Mucha Foundation.

The gallery represents Nigel Waymouth and the work of Michael English, the duo know as Hapshash and the Coloured Coat, the famous 1960's designers who produced many Psychedelic posters for such clubs as the UFO and the Saville, you will see their posters for sale on the site and in the gallery.
