Thunderboys, Alan Adler

Alan Adler became our resident designer and illustrator at TJM while he was still studying at Manchester School of Art. He produced the record label’s posters, singles and LP sleeves. Adler was also the drummer of Manchester's very own Thunderboys and the band occasionally shared our second floor rehearsal room with Joy Division.

Following his time with us Adler moved to London where he produced sleeves for RCA and Island Records including the re-release of Cat Stevens “Morning has Broken/Moonshadow”.
He subsequently became one of the UK’s most influential visual artists.
