POP: SLEEVE NOTES
Saturday 22 August 1998
On the topic of low-key gigs, check out Maximum Roach, the surf-jungle side project of the chartbusting Apollo 440. They are the special guests of A1 People, who launch their excellent Fresh Juice album this evening, at the "Night of Electro Funk Hip-hop" in the Brix (London SW9, 0171-737 1016).
The marketing campaign in the lead-up to the release of the UNKLE album (see reviews, page 40) enters its final phase tomorrow night at HMV's 150 Oxford Street, London store. There will be an album playback at 10pm, then James Lavelle and DJ Shadow (above), the pair behind the project, will hit the decks before the product goes on sale at midnight. During the evening, New York graffiti artist Futura 2000, who designed the figures used for the UNKLE sleeve plus associated toys and merchandise, will be making his mark on a canvas. Call HMV on 0171-432 2036 for tickets.
