Kosmo Vinyl (born Mark C. Dunk, c. 1957, England) was a longtime associate and sometime manager for The Clash, as well as being associated with Ian Dury & the Blockheads and The Jam, three seminal English bands of the 1970s and 1980s. He can be heard introducing The Clash at Shea Stadium on The Clash's live album, Live at Shea Stadium, as well as many bootlegged performances such as Kingston Advice. His impressionistic reading of one of character Travis Bickle's monologues from the film Taxi Driver can be heard on The Clash's "Red Angel Dragnet".
In 2013, he helped produce a major retrospective exhibition of the art of Ian Dury, at The Royal College of Art in London. He also debuted his own punk/pop inspired artwork dedicated to his beloved West Ham United Football Club with a London exhibit, followed by a show in Somerset, England in 2014 during the FIFA World Cup.
