THE STRANGLERS & FRIENDS LIVE IN CONCERT
Sleeve Notes & Package Design
 

 
 

LABEL: SANCTUARY RECORDS, 2001

Archive release of a concert given by New Wave band The Stranglers in 1980 at Londonís Rainbow Theatre. The bandís guitarist and singer Hugh Cornwell was in Pentonville prison for drug offences, so the rest of the band were helped out by stars of the New Wave scene such as Ian Dury, Robert Smith of The Cure, Richard Jobson from The Skids, Toyah Wilcox and Jake Burns of Stiff Little Fingers.

I wrote the sleeve notes and designed the CD in the style of the bandís 1970s graphics. I also interviewed the bandís drummer and archivist, Jet Black.
