Smash Up Derby
I was stoked to get to do a sleeve design for Primitive Records, a way cool label that has been putting out swell garage and punk vinyl since the late '80s (mostly focusing on their always hoppin' local scene out there in Montreal), but this project had some kinda curse on it. Though I sent the original art to the band, for some reason the sleeve was printed from a 72 dpi scan and naturally came out looking like unmitigated crap. The original art has disappeared somewhere along the line and as the printed version is useless I have had to attempt to reconstruct it from a dodgy photocopy. Anyhow, herewith this artwork is presented to the public for the first time looking (more or less) as I originally intended it to. This one goes out to all the shut-ins out there. Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!
