Touche Suchet.

David Suchet: Well I have ahh no statement from any political side all I can tell you is that I’ve witnessed throughout my lifetime wars ehh going on throughout the world. I’ve been to Israel, I’ve been to Palestine. I’ve been to that fantastic land and my heart breaks for innocent people who were caught up in political debates about who owns what peice of land and it breaks my heart as a human being when I watch people firing weapons at each other in order to kill each other to gain NOTHING. IT DOESN’T WORK and until human beings realise that fighting and killing and shooting weapons at each other doesn’t work AND has never worked - until we wake up to that we will have stale mate for eternity.

Jools Holland’s lack of interview skills is forgiven because of this. Sometimes it is my most favourite bit of music ever.

World Record Club - Australia

In Australia more than 3000 covers were produced - and such was the purity - no matter how diverse the designs or the subjects displayed, are immediately recognisable as World Record Club covers.

This body of work, produced in just two decades, remains a snapshot of the Australian independent studio design industry at its genesis - and in the post vinyl era of digital on-line marketing absolutely unrepeatable in style, quality and originality.

Taken/appropriated from Geoff Hocking’s ‘It’s Another World Record - Album Cover Art 1958 - 1976’ book.

The Designs are over 40 years old - but still so modern in their execution. It has woken my interest in Design again - I work as a Designer but the last few years I have just been going through the motions. I could do it with my eyes closed. The passion is returning.
