This is the special edition CRUEL record we fabricated here in our DTLA shop. The front panel is laser-cut MDF painted flat black, the back panel is clear polycarbonate. It’s assembled with four aluminum bolts. The lovely 12″ 180g blue vinyl (pressed here in El Segundo by Bill Smith) is visible through the front panel cut-out. Very few of these were made so if you acquired one you can consider yourself fortunate!
Design and construction of the package was all done here, in house. The “heart cross” design is based on the armband symbol that we created for Scott’s costume for the CRUEL photo session. In addition to the laser-cut package, variations of this symbol also went on stickers to accompany all the records.
