It just missed our recent record sleeves of the month post, but we thought we’d share it straight away: the silvery shiny packaging for Satellites forthcoming album release, entitled 01, on London-based label, Vesterbrother…

Above is the shrink wrapped CD packaging but below are images of the 10inch casebound hard cover gatefold double vinyl edition…

When you open the gatefold, you find that the debossed foil blocked mirror board card on the front folds round to form a CD-enclosing wallet on the inside…

Simply unfold it to access the CD version of the album…

Attached to the two inside covers of the gatefold are two die-cut silver sleeves and loose in the package are two paper inner sleeves each containing transparent coloured vinyl discs. There is also a clear plastic screenprinted insert containing the sleevenotes

Limited to just 500 pressings, the 10″ gatefold version will be available exclusively through Rough Trade from April 9.

Design is by Konstatinos Gargaletsos, with packaging produced by Daniel Mason of Something Else. Label: Vesterbrother.

Also this rather great video for the track Railway Line shot by Tim Walker of Westbound TV has just been posted on YouTube:

The Future is Now

Thunderbirds is very nearly 50 years old. People often ask what the enduring appeal of Thunderbirds is. Perhaps it’s because there’s nothing more compelling than to see someone’s life slipping away knowing there is nothing you can do to save them. Except, of course, call International Rescue
