Blue Mon­day - In the Red

ArabAd - - DESIGN -

New Or­der’s club clas­sic came in the shape of a gi­ant floppy disk (re­mem­ber those?) with three sep­a­rate die-cuts. It re­flects the world of ma­chines, used to com­pose the song. Leg­end goes that the sleeve costed so much to pro­duce that the band ac­tu­ally lost money on each copy sold. Panic grew as the 12” kept ris­ing in the charts. New Or­der front­man Bernard Sum­mer re­cently con­firmed the ur­ban myth. How­ever, on later press­ings, the pricy die-cuts were re­placed by a sim­ple silkscreen. A Blue Mon­day in­deed.
