  • Giger Counted Out

    RIP HR.

    One for the graphic design aficionados on the forum to discuss more than myself, I really only know him via Alien, which is possibly my favourite sci-fi film and the reason I had to sack off doing mushrooms (it all turned a bit dark and they were coming out of the fucking walls!).

    And the music tie-in is possibly Debbie Harry's 'Koo-Koo' kareer kamikaze?

    Might have to cue up Alien tonight out of respect. Or maybe not, if I want to avoid eneuresis.

    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

        Giger posters were pretty common in student bedsits in the 80s.
