above: photos of a bunch of new vinyl projects which have recently rolled in the door...
-jodis "secret house" 2xLP (hydra head records). packaging for this was created with the design assistance of faith coloccia (who also took the photos over which the original drawings i made for the project are laid). printed on "tip-on" style heavy weight gatefold jackets and inner sleeves, with metallic blue spot color on matte coated stock.
-greymachine "disconnected" 2xLP (sige records). this package was adapted from the CD layout for which i completed the design based around video stills provided by jk broadrick. white and silver inks silkscreened on black uncoated heavyweight paper jackets and inserts, with the interior jacket also printed and hand stamped LP labels. some copies will also come with an 11" x 17" promotional poster and a CD version of the audio.
-isis "live V" 2xLP with alternate cover (viva hate records). all design and art for this version by tom neely. tri-fold 12.25" x 36.75" cover, 5 color silkscreen on heavyweight uncoated blue paper. interior is a one color silkscreen with additional artwork and text all hand drawn by neely. tom also made a limited art print version of this piece which you may inquire about through his website.
both the greymachine and isis projects were printed through VG kids who i highly recommend for any silkscreen related projects. absolutely a pleasure to work with in all regards.
all of these records will be available on the upcoming isis tour. otherwise the jodis and greymachine will both be available through the hydra head webstore and select music shops.
helping me through the day: boris "smile" live 2xCD, mk ultra 2xlp discography, phone calls to/from vashon, peste noire "ballade cuntre lo anemi francor", knut "wonder", jana winderen "the noisiest guys on the planet", lustmord "beyond", pure luck los angeles, etc.
