‘The Diskettes’ CD

Album packaging non-design at its best. With their simultaneous appropriation (conscious or not) of Peter Savilles classic Blue Monday “vinyl-cum-computer disk” LP sleeve of 1982, their adaptive reuse of the “objet trouve” of classic Sierra Online computer game disks (painstakingly collected from used computer stores Canada-wide), and their genuine punk sensibility, Montreal’s The Diskettes achieve classic status.
