After doing a
wallpaper, which found it's way to the band's manager,
Simon Watson - I was asked if they could use it for the 2003
tour programme. It ended up with me doing the whole programme. I was a nervous wreck
and very much
confused about how to approach it. The release of 'The Very Best
Of' CD compilation of hits, and the first ever DVD collection of
their videos, was the inspiration for the front. I wanted to use
their latest logo type for the band name, but now attached with
a "the" in front. The three boxes became a theme going through
the programme - it sort of goes again in everything I do, as
it's a simple way of connecting subjects, pages and photos - and
still get the League feel to it, as you recognize them, even if
their faces aren't within them.
Size: 240 mm x 340 mm.
Paper: heavy hi-quality glossy.
Apart from artwork and photos, the programme included a text
written by Simon Price, and it had this intro:
"When You're In Love, You Know You're
In my case, it was Thursday 30th April
1981. I was a bored 13 year old, watching 'Top Of The Pops' with
disinterest, when my attention was annexed by a man with a
hairstyle like a half-drawn curtain, two girls next door, well
they were if you lived on the coolest street in Britain, and two
guys standing sullenly behind synthesizers. In the background
two audacious reel-to-reel tape machines whirred provocatively
away producing a brutal, pounding robobeat, throw in some
intriguingly encoded lyrics, “Put your hand in a party wave,
pass around/Make a shroud pulling combs through a backwash
frame...” and The Human League were my new obsession.
Other credits included Michiel Van Bokhorst and Steve Adam for
Merchandise sold during the tour - and highly unauthorized the
'Love Me Madly?' single got promoted at one gig.
