Classic 80s act ABC bring you The Look Of Love with the look of a felt pen. Another part of the epic commission for wedding decorations of the bride and grooms favourite tracks, this one was great fun to do. Martin Fry and the band are still recording and recently revisited the Look of Love…

One of my favourites here, following some early praise for her Girly Sound tapes Liz Phair released her debut album on Matador records way back in June 1993 (which means it’s nearly 20 years ago…yikes).

Hey, hey mama, it’s a massive flaming dirigible. Well, actually it’s the world famous image of the Hindenburg airship disaster which is now more synonymous with the debut album of true music legends. Led Zeppelin’s 1969 eponymous release was a startling update of blues based sounds with a ‘heavier’ tone. With Robert Plant’s wail in…
