powellAubrey ‘Po’ Powell, co-founder of prolific album sleeve design team Hipgnosis, will join host Craig Bailey on “Floydian Slip” Show #984, airing Feb. 16-22.

Hipgnosis designed nearly every Floyd sleeve starting with 1968’s “A Saucerful of Secrets,” as well as iconic sleeves for other bands such as Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Paul McCartney, 10cc, Al Stewart, Black Sabbath, Alan Parsons Project and many others.

Powell knew members of Floyd before the band formed, and shared a flat for a period of time with band co-founder Syd Barrett.

Powell’s new book is “Hipgnosis: Portraits” from Thames & Hudson. We’ll give away copies of the book on Show #984.

Streaming audio and a transcript of the talk will be available on the “Floydian Slip” website beginning Feb. 23.

Past guests on the program include Floyd drummer Nick Mason, illustrator Gerald Scarfe, composer Ron Geesin, producer/engineer Andy Jackson, and Powell’s Hipgnosis partner Storm Thorgerson.
