Trolling Wired today and they posted about this beautiful looking history of alt music blueprint called Alternative Love. The graphic is by Dorothy. The studio had created an Electronic Love Blueprint earlier, using the specs of Theremin circuit board. For the Alternative Love Blueprint, they used the insides of a transistor radio! Neat.
The map begins with the Sex Pistols. And from there spirals out to all the major influences of alternative music culture (from a British perspective).
Our NEW Alternative Love Blueprint celebrates the history of alternative and independent music via the connections linking artists. Available as a print from www.wearedorothy.com #cbgb #ramones #television #pattismith #talkingheads #iggypop #thestooges #suicide #thevelvetunderground #davidbowie #protopunk #punk #postpunk #indie #alternative #rock #music
The print costs 35 British pounds so what’s that in real money? $57-ish Canadian coloured monies? I think I’ll need to put this on my Christmas list so I can hang it in my study. I will also put a “study” on my Christmas list, because I need one of those too.
