I adore Jamie McKelvie`s Cover for Phonogram # 2 ( to be this is a Brilliant Homage to Black Grape`s Album cover …its Great When your Straight ..Yeah . my favorite song on the Album is its A Big Day in the North ( which I 1st heard on the opening credits of 1995`s Virtuosity …the Denzel Washington , Russel Crowe flick ..I used to watch that movie on re-runs on TV way back when I was A Kid ) anyways I really , really liked the song Big Day in the North so ( in my teens I bought it on Itunes ) these days If I can find a copy of The CD then I would be Happy . I just love the mood of that song .
anyways I really Dig the early issues of Phonogram by Kieron Gillen and Jamie Mckelvie ( it inspired me to make my own playlist ) also this comic really makes the music lover in me swoon .
its another reason why I enjoy an Gillen /Mckelvie comic . it makes me want to listen to my favorite music while I read one of their yarns . I do the same when I go back and re-read old Issues of Savage Dragon ( that is namely a weird playlist of Rap, 80s music and Shirley Walker`s score to Batman the animated series , for everything else I turn my Ipod on Shuffle ) ^_^
I do love how Jamie Mckelvie illustrate his characters facial expressions and Body Language from panel to panel . :D
