Popular music and the surrounding culture was the primary inspiration for Lloyd Johnson’s work.

He has selected a soundtrack for The Modern Outfitter which reflects the guiding relationship between sounds and vision. Some tracks were recorded by customers (Madness, The Specials, Johnny Thunders, the Rolling Stones, Tim Curry…), others go back to the roots of rock & roll, Johnson's formative years as a teen style Modernist in the 50s and his love of early 60s, pre-Beatles instrumentals.
