TALK TALK ‘SPIRIT OF TALK TALK’
A while back I was flattered to be asked to contribute a piece to the ‘Spirit Of Talk Talk’ biography, published by Rocket 88 press
‘Spirit Of Talk Talk’ is a celebration of the artist James Marsh, the man who designed all of the bands record sleeves. It is also a Talk Talk biography and alongside such luminaries as Guy Garvey (Elbow) and Alan Wilder (Depeche Mode) you will find my own recollections on Talk Talk’s ‘Spirit Of Eden’ album and just what it means to me.
Not long after the book was launched (it’s now in it’s second press), James Marsh started designing sleeves for my bands Villareal and Lightning Dept. This is a real dream come true for me and I am honoured that my music is adorned by such beautiful art.
