Artefact

Fuze
Record / CD / Tape
1982
This 7" single is from 1982 and Relentless Records asked me to design the sleeve, so I did! I have the actual single as well as the cover.

I also have a Taster compilation album from Relentless that I designed the cover for, but I don't seem to have the sleeve anymore. Its got bands like 48 Chairs, Cairo, Naafi's etc.

The chaps at Relentless Records claimed to have a martian brain at their headquarters, which they showed me! It was in a cupboard, with a spotlight shining on it! It actually looked like green jelly on a plate wobbling around! Perhaps it was!

i have heard about this 'martian brain' before. i believe it belonged to Chris Seivey (of the Freshies and Frank Sidebottom fame). It was in the cellar of the rabid offices in Cotton Lane, West Didsbury. He would charge 50p to go down and have a look at it. sometimes people were locked in there... whether the brain was real or not, i don't know.

I can't believe I have only just come across these comments from Mat and Shivadescending. Yes, You're right, we did have to pay to see the brain! And Shivadescending, thanks so much for the link! I thought I'd never see the album sleeve again, even if only as a photo. :-)
