Central Station Design is a Mancunian design company founded by brothers Matt and Pat Carroll together with Karen Jackson. CSD is usually associated with Factory Records and the Madchester scene of the early 1990s. The company created album cover artwork and posters for Factory artists, especially the Happy Mondays. Their design for the Happy Mondays' Madchester Rave On E.P. in late 1989 became the iconic logo for the movement. http://www.centralstationdesign.com/
he Stone Roses: ‘The Stone Roses’ - The debut album from Madchester’s favourite sons was created by guitarist John Squire with much influence from Jackson Pollock and his piece ‘Bye Bye Badman’ about the 1968 Paris riots. The lemons were a reference to the rioters who used them as an antidote to tear gas used by the Police.
