SIDE 75 | G100 pt. 4

cover

We’re up to #75 here, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to share the final part of our Garage 100 compilation series. This is a collection of the rarest garage 45s from the 60s, and the final part consists of the last 25 numbers from #75 and down. That means these are still all killer no filler – I mean, just consider the Puslating Heartbeats 45, both sides of which are amazing. I’ve picked the jangly flip here, simply because it’s among my all time faves.  I believe all of these have been comped by now, so I’m just doing you the favour of arranging and tagging them. If you’ve downloaded the previous sets, you can now play the G100 in it’s entirety. And that’s just what I’m going to do now.

Smash Bang Pow winter schedule

sbp_0

I’ve been working on yet a new identity concept for Danish booking agency Smash Bang Pow. Here’s the first fruits of that labour. First off, it is to be used for their winter line-up posters and flyers. The graphic has been created using asdf-sort Processing scripts.

Design concept for HYMN

During the summer I’ve been working on extending the visual identity for Hymn, which is now one of Sweden’s biggest online magazines for new music. The identity has been broadened to include co-branding, or events presented by Hymn. That could e.g. be a concert where the band takes prominence over the brand. Eventually, the plan is to introduce further colours into the palette. The concept is designed to handle unique band logos or layouts using varying fonts – shown here are Sectra and Haptik Rotalic from Grilli Type, as well as Playtype’s good old Signature. The stroke becomes an active element, shown in the slide below.

The basic design relies on monochrome photos with burnt out backgrounds.

In cases where suitable images cannot be found, the follow layout should be used.

The Sound of Young Scotland Pt. 1 & 2

The Sound of Young Scotland is a project created by Grant McPhee and Digital Onset Films, documenting the history of Scottish indie music. The first film, called Big Gold Dream, premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival earlier this year – winning the audience award. Soon, the second part Teenage Superstars will appear in the cinemas. I have designed the posters for the films, as well as a Sound of Young Scotland logotype (set in Berlingske Serif Stencil, by Playtype). The first poster shows the members of the band Scars out of Edinburgh, while the new one depicts Glasgow darlings The Pastels. The inspiration for Big Gold Dream were Fast Records album sleeves, and for Teenage Superstars it was the posters for legendary club Splash One! (run by Bobby Gillespie, amongst others). The film also includes Scottish artist Jim Lambie’s footage from the club in 1986, with cameos from many now well-known musicians.

The G100 resumed

cover

About five years ago I posted the first volume in what was going to be a 4 volume set compiling the singles the make up the Garage 100, or the 100 most collectible garage singles according to g45central. I never got further, because of the very complex covers I had designed for the compilations. Printed on two interlocking sheets of 10″ newsprint, with a large centre hole, the cover was meant to look like a black vinyl record, that could be folded down into a quarter that would be the right size to fit a CDR. Depending on which way you folded it, it could be the cover for any one of the four cds. Because of the scissor fold, the cover laid flat could be switched over from showing the vinyl side on top to bottom, to showing the tracklisting, to showing the flipside of every 45 side chosen for the compilation.

back

Here’s the first volume, uploaded again for you. And the matching info to each track, which is printed on the opposite end of the 10″.

Here is the tracklisting of the first volume, featuring #1 to #25, with catalogue number, indication of A or B side, as well as the title of the other side. Five years ago, some of these were pretty hard to track down in digital form.

MODEST mini identity

Here’s some brand new work that I spent roughly two hours on. Might write my next essay on subculture branding (or “community branding”). More details on this new Weekender to be announced soon, lookout for it on Social Media.
