As It Is When It Was
Peter Saville was the house artist for Factory Records and the man responsible for all the cover artwork for Joy Division and New Order, among many others. If you check out his website, you can browse through a gallery of his work – he has a fantastic style. And as a bonus, you can download a whole bunch of the fonts he used on JD and NO album artwork – perfect for creating, oh, little banner ads advertising the Joy Division vs New Order tribute night at Sneaky Dee’s on Friday at which we will be playing. Plug plug.
Now 517 will be along shortly with an expansive commentary on Peter Saville and his work…
The Cure were supposed to release a 4-disc box set of b-sides and rarities called Join The Dots – The B-sides & Rarities Collection on October 21, but that has been pushed back to January 13 of next year.
Off Records is now taking pre-orders for the all-star Hedwig & The Angry Inch tribute album, Wig In A Box. The less devoted can wait till it comes out on October 21, but they will miss out on the FREE POSTER that Off is, er, offering.
Roy Horn of Siegfried and Roy has been mauled by a tiger during one of their shows in Las Vegas. Now I don’t really wish ill on anyone, but come on – what the hell did you think was going to happen? It’s called the law of averages. Look it up.
