This band was a big part of my teenage years back in the 1980s and they’re still recording quality, original rockabilly. The vinyl EP released last year was one of their best yet in my opinion so looking forward to hearing this new CD album immensely. Fantastic front cover artwork, my job was to build the rest of the packaging to complement this cover including multi-page booklet, inlay and CD print.
I’ve just been wrestling the new Gruff’s EP artwork into shape for the pressing plant. This one’s going to be on green vinyl with 4 tracks, 2 from the excellent recent album plus a couple of new tracks too! Psychobilly will never die!!!
Monday morning just got a whole lot more exciting!! Two recent CD album pre-press jobs for rockin’ bands on the Western Star label. USA Rockabilly band Little Leslie and The Bloodshots new album “Heart Beat” and the new album from UK Psychobilly band Henry and The Bleeders “Looking Backwards”
This week I’ve been working on two releases for the excellent “Henry & The Bleeders” from Bedford. Just kicking the supplied artwork in to shape for the pressing plant and adding the bells and whistles to stick the Western Star brand on this second one, the CD album; “Looking Backwards”. Now approved and catapulted into the ether ready for production. How can I not love doing this stuff!!!
Vinyl is still cool! Here’s the cover of the forthcoming “Henry & The Bleeders” vinyl 7″ EP which I’ve been pre-pressing for Western Star this week and has just been approved so off it goes to the pressing plant for release early next year. Now working on their CD album too! The rock ‘n’ roll train just keeps on a rollin’!!!
