Unearthed - 1974 interview with Floyd cover designers, Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey 'Po' Powell Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Wednesday, 28 November 2018

On November 12th 1974, the respected BBC television series the Old Grey Whistle Test (which focused on the music scene of the time) conducted an interview with Hipgnosis (Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell), and Roger Dean, most notable for Yes and Asia covers, and a friend (and flat mate) of Storm.

The interview, which can be viewed below, gives an insight into the trio's thoughts and approach at the time, with Dean in particular complaining about the small space that cassette tapes afforded a cover designer. Eight years later, of course, the compact disc was to appear, with similar compromises in packaging.

 

Our thanks to Malcolm Walker for tipping us off about this video.
