As we all know, Cleveland is FILLED with many artists, musicians and writers. We are a city filed with the creative class always working on a new project, whether it be a new album, a line of chic clothing or writing a new book.
A few weeks ago, a friend of a friend made me aware of a new book, soon to be on the market written by Cleveland author, Matthew Chojnacki called Put the Needle on the Record.
This book chronicles 7″ and 12″ single cover artwork from the 1980’s, has a forward by Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters) and an afterword by Nick Rhodes (Duran Duran) and has interviews from over 125 musicians including Annie Lennox and Yoko Ono!
The book is currently in pre-sale so if you’d like to not only know all the “deets” about the super rad, mega awesome 1980’s albums…order your’s here. PLUS, if you happen to be out and run into Matt, make sure to A) congratulate him on his completed project and B) pick his brain…as he is now a walking encyclopedia on my favorite era, the ’80’s!
