Time for some shameless self promotion. I’m reliably informed that Francis Rossi will be on Later with Jools Holland tonight to discuss the forthcoming movie “Hello Quo”, and the film poster, DVD cover etc. was designed by yours truly, so look out for my artwork folks!
A little update to this post. Now that the film is out, and the final artwork has been approved, I thought it might be of interest to some people to see the ‘works in progress’. More images below:
There are a number of CDR’s circulating featuring excellent DJ sets from the Big Audio Dynamite Sound System. The ones I know of are not dated, although I would guess that they are circa ’97, and as it would take someone with a vast knowledge of dance music to come up with an accurate track listing for these discs I have kept these designs generic…so one size fits all folks!
Thanks to El Blanco Dread for the scans of original flyers etc. which gave me the inspiration for the designs.
I would like to dedicate these designs to my late friend, Anthony Edmundson. Anthony was a massive Joy Division & New Order fan, and I know he would have enjoyed this compilation, and the discussions that would undoubtedly follow in the local pub.
The compilation was not my idea, but I was inspired to produce the artwork after reading this excellent blog:
Kind credits and courtesy to ‘the power of independent trucking’, and thank you so much for the informative blog on one of the truly great bands.
These are for you Tony:
A little bit of background info:
Whilst searching for suitable images for these designs, I came across a couple of posters for the movie “Black Dynamite”. They looked so cool that I decided to use these as the inspiration for the designs below.
I’m also trying to create artwork which is in keeping with the design style that the band favoured at the time, so I did a third version which takes it’s inspiration from the “Upping Street” era releases.
Finally thanks to everyone for all the kind words and encouragement. Glad y’all like the designs and it really makes it worth the effort, and if you have any requests for artwork please drop me a line and I’ll try to help out.
