So sad to hear of the death of H.R. Giger today, and by way of serendipity with my previous two Blondie posts, here's a video from 1981 with a variant soundtrack showing Debbie Harry all Gigered-up! The Record sleeves for Debbie Harry's KooKoo album and related single sleeves were photos by Brian Aris artworked over by H.R. Giger. The subsequent poster campaign featuring Debbie's skewered face was actually banned from being displayed on London's Underground network at the time, as it was deemed too disturbing. I've posted this before, but it deserves another look in the light of current events. R.I.P. H.R. Giger.
Yesterday I bought the deluxe box set of Blondie's Greatest Hits Deluxe Redux & Ghosts Of Download including a live DVD, featuring a concert recorded in 1977 at CBGB's. Unfortunately I've been so busy I haven't even had a chance to give it a spin, which also accounts for my lack of posts lately. Anyway, you can hear the entire album here.
