Hi Katy, Many questions to the band...Just want to know the name of the photographer who shoot the beautiful Astronauts cover?? Is it Kristian Schuller??I love it very much... We know all that the band is very close with fashion, design,...But who choose the designer or photographer and whats the process to made a booklet? Just curious to discover this one...and to heard all the new songs!!!Thanks, Vincent
ALL FIVE BAND MEMBERS HAVE AN INPUT IN TO DECIDING UPON WHO WE USE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY AND DESIGN. HOWEVER, IT IS USUALLY JOHN AND NICK WHO MAKE THE EARLY SUGGESTIONS. KRISTIAN SCHULLER IS A PHOTOGRAPHER NICK HAD SPOTTED THROUGH FASION LAYOUTS FOR VARIOUS MAGAZINES. THE ALBUM PACKAGE WAS DESIGED BY JOHN WARWICKER AT TOMATO - AND THE BAND ACTUALLY FIRST WORKED WITH HIM IN 1980 WHEN JOHN WAS ATTENDING BIRMINGHAM POLYTECHNIC, HE DESIGNED THE SLEEVE FOR THE BAND'S FIRST SINGLE, "PLANET EARTH" - WHICH THEY WERE GOING TO RELEASE INDEPENDENTLY. HOWEVER, THIS NEVER SAW THE LIGHT OF DAY AS THE BAND, AS YOU KNOW, ENDED UP SIGNING TO A MAJOR LABEL AND THE COVER WAS THEN DESIGNED BY MALCOLM GARRETT.
