    Art on your sleeve - Episode 10 - The Cloth

    Art on your sleeve - Episode 10 - The Cloth

    This episode is an audio supplement to Classic Pop magazine, issue 4, published May/June 2013. In this podcast I interview artist, Fraser Taylor, who was part of a design collective called The Cloth (1983-1987). Fraser was one quarter of The Cloth along with David Band, Helen Manning and Brian Bolger. The art of Fraser Taylor and David Band featured on many record sleeves in the early eighties, most notably for Spandau Ballet, Altered Images, Aztec Camera and The Bluebells. Music from these artists and others is included in the episode along with archive interview content from Gary Kemp and David Band.

    Fraser is now based back in Glasgow after a long time living in London and then Chicago and I caught up with him at Glasgow School of Art where he and David Band met in the late seventies.

    There's also an active Facebook group and Glasgow School of Art maintain a profile for the collective on Instagram @thecloth80s

    Art on your sleeve - Episode 8 - Record sleeve design

    Art on your sleeve - Episode 8 - Record sleeve design

    This episode is an audio supplement to the 'Synthpop' special edition of Classic Pop magazine, published on 7 February 2019. In the magazine I have written an eight page feature about the best sleeve designs of the synthpop genre from the last 40 years.

    In this podcast, I am joined by two pop pals to talk about three of our favourite sleeve designs, some of which are included in the magazine article. The range is quite eclectic and purely personal but myself, Andrew and David all had quite a lot to say. So, plug in your earphones and enjoy.
