Maggadee, New York, New York, 1996

Description

How can you go wrong with a 1960s orange transistor radio? We really wanted the radio to stand on its own and speak to the pop-punk/indie rock scene in New York’s East Village. Even the band’s name takes a back seat, relying on the image to draw the consumer in.

I like this one because it is simple yet bold. The radio becomes an instantly recognizable icon, not only for this debut album but for the band as well.
