New album by Australia’s All India Radio with Pink Floyd’s unused Dark Side of The Moon artwork. Check it out here

Martin Kennedy from All India Radio: 

“Over the years I’ve stated in interviews my love of Pink Floyd and the influence they have on my music. They are in my DNA. In the early days I wanted to sound like them and even look like them! So when the opportunity came along to use some artwork originally commissioned for Pink Floyd I jumped at the chance.

In 1973 veteran British artist David A Hardy was asked by Pink Floyd’s management to contribute art for a new album then tentatively called ‘Eclipse’ (later to become Dark Side of The Moon). Hardy’s artwork ultimately missed out to the famous prism art by Hipgnosis.

I saw David’s art in one of his books and wondered if it was available for licensing. I loved the space theme and its direct connection to Pink Floyd – it was totally perfect for my new album.“
