Logo #223: Emerson Lake and Palmer
Emerson Lake & Palmer's stylised skull was designed by H.R. "Don't Call Me Guy-ger" Giger in 1973 for the "Brain Salad Surgery" LP. The thing about Giger's work is that although it's sexual and perverse and doomed, there's a very empty aspect to it. A lot of space in those paintings - and in space, no one can hear you scream "It's Gee-ger!" Most of Giger's work looks like it was set up aeons ago and then abandoned and we're only now catching up.
