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!!
No rest for the wicked! A new month and new CD packaging sorted out for Western Star. This time for a new band on the label and a new band on my radar (that’s a lot of “new” in one sentence!). The Strays sound just my cup o’tea!! …
“The Strays are pushing rock ‘n’ roll to it’s limit, fusing a multitude of genres to create a unique modern sound with a gritty, vintage edge. Described as No Doubt meets Imelda May, The Strays performance style is larger than life, interactive, and deliciously unpredictable.”
Can’t wait to hear this!
Latest CD packaging artwork job for the legendary “Western Star” label. This time for The Pat Winn Combo. Been having a chat with Pat this week and turns out he used to live about 4 miles down the road from me and work at one of the places we used to play back then! More Rock ‘n’ Roll goodness whizzed off to the pressing plant!!
