Yeah, New Banner and Look

I was messing around this morning and accidentally erased our template, so I had to make a new one.

Its the inside album art from Ramases - Glass Top Coffin

"The dreamer dreamed the dust rose up and walked
But when the dreamer woke did anyone tell the dust
-and I fell and stars like dust covered me"


It's not his best album but its definitely great artwork.

Here is the story:
"Cover concept by Ramases, artwork by Dave Field/art direction: Jack Wood
Album Cover: He was really upset by the cover of the album. I saw the first proofs and they weren't at all what he envisaged. The cut-out was meant to show a man falling backwards into space into the Horsehead nebula, which when you open up the album revealed that bird. Well, he didn't like what they had done, but the artwork was completed and the record company said, that's that!! So Ram persuaded the record company to let him scratch (literally) the litho plates before the cover went to press. He sanded down that little circle that is lighter in the mans head that forms a part of that birds shoulder, and it did look marginally better. His vision was that the man would look like he was in a space suit with helmet on, etc etc...
