Issue #27 is themed around the classic 33RPMLP cover, following the traditions set forth by bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Joan Baez, Jimi Hendrix, and Des & Dawn Lindberg. Designers were asked to create an album cover for a fantasy band, inspired by the classic art of the Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine” by Peter Blake, Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” by Peter Saville, or Sonic Youth’s “Dirty” by Mike Kelley, to name a few. Designers created their own band name, logo and cover style. Equally as important was the icons, prices, labels and other graphic elements that accompanied LP’s on retailers shelves, adding to the history of listening culture.
