Music Packaging: The Making of The Infesticon’s LP Packaging


The Infesticons recently released a new LP titled “Bedford Park” which is the third and final part of the Infesticons concept trilogy.  Big Dada Recordings say that it is one of the highest quality packages they have ever put together. It includes a screen-printed outer sleeve with gold text, full colour inner sleeve with battle scene design by Mike Ladd and heavyweight 180 gram vinyl with download codes.

(Inner Sleeve)

The best thing about it is that each copy is hand signed by Mike Ladd, and hand numbered 1-1000. Some copies even have extra scribbles and lines written by Mike. This truly is a collectors’ item!

Aside from the ‘deeper meaning’ and interpretations of the artwork, it also says much about Mike Ladd’s obsession with war toys. Check out how Mike had fun setting up the shot for the artwork.

This is the ‘making’ of the sleeves.
