Im sure by now some of our more music geeky fans have noticed a slight similarity of the covers of NIGHT PEOPLE and the cover of Factory Records' band SECTION 25's Always Now from 1981. The story is that Section 25 is one of EDM's favorite bands. (esp in the case of Jonathan, Dan and Marty) When brainstorming with Brian at Western Vinyl on what to do for album cover art we went back and forth for weeks coming up with different things, but nothing seemed to be perfect. Everyone in the band is big fans of Factory Records (Joy Division, New Order, Section 25 etc) and decided to look to their artwork for some inspiration. Jonathan immediately mentioned the Section 25 record as a record in which the cover art and the music blend perfectly, stark lettering with bold colors is very eye catching so we decided to run with it. Dan wasn't too keen on completely ripping off Section 25's cover art so we added a picture of him wearing very flamboyant clothing at a costume party in New Orleans. We thought the 2 graphics worked well together and went with it. Though EDM's music is not very similar, we hope that Section 25, who are actually still a band to this day, don't mind the homage that EDM has paid to them and their amazing 1981 album with NIGHT PEOPLE.
ps. Drastic Plastic Records have recently re-issued Forever Always on vinyl.
