Below is a press kit issued by Epic promoting the band. It explains the imagery and messages behind the Tyranny symbols. It provides a timeline for the band and a complete discography as of 1991. The flyer itself is standard 8.5 X 11 inches in black/white/gray-tones on glossy paper. There are actually two versions (see scans)...differing only in the first/front page. One looks hastily put together with a gray-tone "Front 242"in the background, and quotes in the forefront. I think the first version (which is likely the later, perhaps?) is much cleaner and nicer. It contains various quotes, including a quote from Nietzsche, Section 242, Beyond Good and Evil. (EVIL...foreshadowing of UP EVIL perhaps?)
The glossy photo shows the guys very dapper, Jean-Luc in a tie even! Of course Daniel B. was still very mysterious and seldom-photographed at this time.
Also included is a letter from Julie Farman, Assoc. Director for Media and Artist Relations at Epic (1990-1997). A Google search here shows what she is up to today: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/julie-farman/4/19b/6
The letter is addressed to: "Dear Person Who Probably Loves Sonic Youth and Will Thus Hate Me Soon After Reading This Letter,"
I cringe at the comparison and mentions of Sonic Youth and Kim Gordon...exactly who was Epic trying to appeal to? It does mention some sales numbers as of March 21, 1991: 135,000 units and she says that the record is "HOT. SALES HOT."
Finally, a North American tour itinerary is included. The scan does not show up very well, but that is because the type-written original is also very faint and somewhat challenging to read! These were scanned original size, but Blogger shrinks them. If you would like to see bigger/greater details, just let me know and I will be happy to email the files...
