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!"

one of my fave labels (although a lot of there releases are very generic and boring) who had some great art work. Apparently there were rumors for Aphex’s Rephlex label to do a joint release with Fax.

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.

Two previous Verhoeven posts can be found here:
