Put the Needle on the Record
Long-time Madonna fanatic Matthew Chojnacki recently wrote an ’80s cover art book called Put the Needle on the Record, with a foreword by Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters and an afterword by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran.
Put the Needle on the Record: The 1980s at 45 Revolutions Per Minute chronicles 7″ and 12″ single cover artwork from the 1980s with Madonna being the most featured artist among the more than 250 graphics.
Matt also interviewed over 125 musicians and cover artists to get the stories behind the images – everyone from Gary Numan to Andy Bell to Yoko Ono.
The book will be released on August 28 – but you can already pre-order it – and get more details – on Amazon.com.
