Past & Present Inspiration

This is my own personal copy of Spiritualized 'Ladies and Gentlemen we are floating in space'. The CD doesn't work and I've popped the pill but I just had to keep hold of it. This is one of the first album's I bought in which the CD Sleeve & Packaging just blew me away and really inspired me to get into graphic design.

I did infact download Radiohead's 'In Rainbows' for free, but as soon as this glorious box set was released I decided to splash out £40. Radiohead always impress me with their cd sleeve designs of which I'll post more when I get round to it.

The Bluetones Signed Record Sleeve

I've had it sitting in my office for about 6 months. I've been a massive fan of the Bluetones since 1994, boyhood heroes of mine and despite my music taste changing over the years, I've never stopped supporting these guys. This I think was their 3rd single which was signed by the band back in 1996. I met the band at a recent gig in Norwich Arts Centre 11 years later where they re-signed the reverse side. A very happy moment for me :)
