Letzte Woche bloggte ich das Ende der Designers Republic, jetzt hat Creative Review eine Retrospektive am Start. Dort stellte ich fest, dass einer der ersten Aufträge der DR tatsächlich eine meiner ersten Vinyl-Platten war – die ich mir nur wegen des Covers gekauft hatte.

1987 KRUSH: HOUSE ARREST
“This was actually at the time when all the Beastie Boys people were nicking VW badges, so we came up with the idea that if the Beastie Boys were VW, then Krush was going to be Mercedes Benz, so the cover has got a Mercedes look built into it. People were also wearing a lot of those Russian badges, so there was a zeitgeist thing going on there”
