Frances Castle: CD Packaging for Jetsam and Gareth E. Rees ‘A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes’

A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes is another beautifully crafted, limited edition album designed and illustrated by Frances Castle for Clay Pipe Music. Frances' atmospheric images are a perfect foil for Gareth E. Rees' words about the landscape of the Hackney Marshes and it's mix of ancient wetland, overgrown Victorian ruins, wild flower meadows, pylons, railway sidings and reservoirs. Ree's spoken word in collaboration with Jetsam's orchestration, takes us on a journey through this troubled dreamscape.

Dirty North

These punchy drawings for Manchester's 'Dirty North' are by pen and ink master Ben Tallon. Working with the band, Ben has produced  gritty artworks for the single and album inlay. Ben says "'The Blues' is the new single from Dirty North, a three piece from Wythenshawe, Manchester fusing reggae with rap and guitar music...... I met the boys in Wythenshawe, Europe's biggest council estate. We toured the local hangouts where the boys grew up, providing much fuel for the lyrics and musical identity. I photographed everything from graffiti on the underpass to melted wheelie bins, attracting attention from a few bystanders. The results delighted the band and The Blues is out now on Corporate Records." Dirty North are also rumoured to be supporting The Stone Roses at Heaton Park.
