I'm admittedly a bigger fan of rock and roll than the beautiful game, so it's the overlap of the two that inspire me. Queen has become the defacto spirit music for sports so I sought out the original 7" singles for We Will Rock You and We are the Champions. I loved the poetic connection of two 45 minute halves to two 45 rpm singles.
The project has a close visual connection to one Paul Rustand and I did about 9 years ago called Lo-Fi in which we tried to make a graphic compilation album juxtaposing hollow and provocative lyrics from our favorite songs. However the production method was quite different. For the calendar I used completely digital methods but Lo-Fi was entirely done with letter press.
Printing the title page with a broken record was one of my favorite moments.
