Back in 2016 I produced the artwork for a fine 10″ coloured vinyl rock ‘n’ roll release from West Country nutters; The Bad Detectives. With classy titles such as “There’s A Love Guru In The Village Barn” and “Shepton Prison Blues” I think you know it’s not going to be the usual affair! This 8 track EP has now been expanded with 6 more tracks to make a 14 track album and recpackaged for release on CD. Artwork now approved and on it’s way to the pressing plant.
Yet more rock ‘n’ roll goodness on it’s way. I have just had the artwork for this new album from The Pat Winn Combo signed off for the pressing plant on the Western Star label in Somerset. Interestingly though Pat is based in Norfolk and tells me he once worked at “The Duke” in Bacton when our band used to play there regularly! A bit of cartoon work on this one.
Another CD packaging job sorted, this time for my mates in Norwich; The V8 Rockets. A hard working and well respected bunch of local musicians playing traditional rockabilly at rock ‘n’ roll clubs across the country for many years.
Another Western Star release approved. This time it’s the new CD album from Henry & The Bleeders. I’ve worked on many covers for this great rockabilly band, it seems they’ve been around forever. Some of the songs here are on the recent, limited edition vinyl 10 inch ( “The Beast” ) but this is the full album. Henry & The Bleeders are about to perform their 15th anniversary gig on 30th November in Bedford.
I’ve been a bit quiet the last couple of weeks on the posting front, not because I haven’t done anything but because it’s been so busy! Anyway, I know it’s still August but those of us in this trade know preparations for Christmas start early so here’s the latest artwork out of the gates. A double CD album packed with Christmas themed recordings from the host of rockabilly and psychobilly bands on the internationally renowned Western Star record label. Before you start worrying that the psychos have all ‘gone soft’ you’ll be please to hear the compilation CD includes some festively named treats like “Blotto in the Grotto”, “Psycho Ho Ho” and “Freaky Tikki Christmas”. I think you get the picture!!
