Marc and I have worked together for a few years now, most notably on his albums My Friend Marx and Human Herdings. Each time he calls to discuss a musical project, is always a meeting I look forward to, a) because of the creative challenge, and b) because it’s the type of meeting we have in a quiet local pub over a pint or two of Guinness.
MORALITY MORTALITY, his new music cd release seemed a fitting title for a collection of songs drawn from the previous 18 months, a time I knew were very challenging for him personally. Our initial discussions centered on the tone of the design, that the title was the hook, and his wish for the final solution to be graphic, as opposed to photographic/Illustrative in nature, so as to keep the continuity of style we used on the previous albums. The songs he said, were going to be ‘dark and miserable’!!
