On a Trip

Here’s a poster for a Cupboard Music gig with Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab fame, who’s been touring her solo album ‘The Trip’. Hence, obviously, the retro-futurist robot character going off somewhere abstract.

I wanted to make this poster a bit more subtle, a little less cartoonish than normal, as while Laetitia’s solo work is not too dissimilar to Stereolab, it’s a bit more sparse and sombre than the band, but still a beautiful listen.  I couldn’t get away from the robots though, they’re just too good a visual shorthand. And everybody loves a melancholic robot.

Big version here.

    Will you be down for this?

    Hi Joe! Yeah I was planning to, I saw Laetitia play at ATP last year and it was a really nice set. Will you be around?

    I was thinking of coming down on saturday for the comic fair and gig which the Astronauts are playing, funnily enough my friends the Trailer Trash Orchestra (most of whom used to play in the Astronauts too) are playing the Albert the same night, not too sure yet though.
