Taken By StormPresented by Noise Pop
This man has designed 80% of your classic vinyl record collection !
For over 40 years using album covers as his canvas, Storm has created many of the most iconic images in music from Pink Floyd’s DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, Zeppelin’s HOUSES OF THE HOLY to Peter Gabriel,10cc, Black Sabbath, Paul McCartney and later for Cranberries, Mars Volta, Anthrax, Audioslave, Muse, Biffy Clyro and Steve Miller. Eschewing digital manipulation in favor of building massive sets, staging performances and “doing it for real” Storm has deliriously and relentlessly confounded expectations of the role of the album cover at the intersection of art and commerce. Directed by Roddy Bogawa
