No love for Randy Pie?

Oh man, the cover of 'Rastakraut Pasta'. I'd forgotten how great these album covers were. Did Sky have an in-house designer? Or was it Moebius who was really into design?

Moebius trained as a graphic designer I think

Moebius studied art with Joseph Beuys, right? Then again, so did Schnitzler, but Schnitzler wasn't much into design. i think Schnitzler was really into the sculpture side of Beuys. Beuys did do some great design work, though.

Those Cluster/Harmonia/etc records are so insanely well-integrated, on a conceptual level--the song titles, the graphic design, everything.

Streetmark album is pleasant (what is a Streetmark anyway?) but given that Dorothea Raukes was responsible for the Deutsch Wertarbeit album, I think she deserves her name on the cover too! Other than the fact that it's German, can't see any reason to be interested in the Randy Pie album however. Thx for all contributions as always!

1 month passes...

I wonder if I can "like" Randy Pie on Facebook.

Won't someone help me find other things that sound like the Earthstar and Deutsche Wertarbeit albums posted upthread? I have been listening to both of them pretty constantly since.

Michael Shrieve's "Transfer Station Blue" (referred to upthread IIRC) is full of burbling synthy goodness. More well known, but Ashra's "New Age of Earth" is also fantastic. Peter Baumann's "Leda Welcome to Joyland" is more in the proto-Italo disco vein, but is v nice, and I think was also discussed upthread.

Love Ashra, haven't heard the other two. Thanks!

Couldn't find either of these on spotify, and could only find Transfer Station Blue (and other Peter Baumann, enjoying Bicentennial Presentation) on youtube. Didn't want to download the wrong thing by accident.

I think non-spotify links are on this thread if you wind back through it.
