Mike & Rich ‘Mike & Rich’ (1996, Rephlex)
Collaborative album between Aphex Twin and µ-ziq, the rumor is that the album was made in 3 days while taking lots of shrooms. Which makes sense when listening to the patchy album.
Text on the front reads:
"Cleverly manoeuvre your records onto the platters and then listen to the tracks in the right order to win! But watch out-the tracks are different on each side you could be helping your opponent instead of helping yourself!"
Another Gerald Donald (Drexciya, Dopplereffekt etc) project, named after the precursors to the internet &
National Security Agency headquarters, Fort Meade, Maryland
2 books for Damien Slash’s water review character Piero Pisswall plus 3 rejected covers.

Screen grabs of the excellent typography in the advertisement from the amazing film Starship Troopers (1997) directed by Paul Verhoven (who also made Robocop & Totall Recall which all satirise advertisement & war). Does anyone know who designed/made the Troopers advertisement.
Screen grabs from Paul Verhoeven's Robocop (1987) & Total Recall (1990) which is based on Philip K Dick’s ‘We Can Remember It For you Whole Sale’. These screen grabs are here for the type and/or logos in them.
