A quick trip to hell and back
16 September 1998

Packaging for ex-Magazine and Bad Seeds member Barry Adamson’s LP As Above, So Below and associated singles, on Mute Records.

For a number of years Intro did a lot of work for Daniel Miller’s Mute Records, including designing the label identity which is featured elsewhere in the archive. Barry Adamson was one of many artists we designed sleeves for.

These designs were for the As Above, So Below album and associated singles. They all feature my photography, including a few sessions I did with Barry, before we were moved on for not having the necessary permissions, on more than one occasion.

The designs all feature above and below images, Barry was exploring themes concerning right/wrong and heaven/hell etc. His music can be quite dark at times, but always in a groovy kind of way.
