ILoveDust x Macho Man Randy Savage


“Macho Man Randy Savage, has got to be the most unique and idiosyncratic character in the history of professional wresting. There’s really no one else like him and he defies all attempts at labelling or categorisation. He was a writhing muscular mass of bizarre ticks and personal mannerisms, clad in an ever-changing, endless wardrobe of hyper-flamboyant colours. A true one off, a heavy metal neon cowboy. What better muse for ilovedust?”

Butlers came to us about a year ago when Blacksticks Blue, their absolutely stonking cheese, was languishing on shelves. This special cheese is lovingly handmade (like every cheese the Butler family produces) with a loyal following, but its safe, old packaging was in need of some TLC.

In this design, the cover consists of an outer sleeve made of white cardboard and an inner sleeve made of red paper. On the outer sleeve, all of the text, such as the names of the artist and the tracks is written by cutting out letter with a laser allowing the red inner sleeve to show through. There’s nothing printed on the outer cover itself – it’s pure white. As is the actual record. Only small engravings near the blank white center label tell which side of the record is which. The music itself is electronic and falls between styles such as glitch, idm, noise and techno. The machine made nature of the album is represented in the simplistic and almost mathematically precise form of the cover.
