Any independent record buyer from the early eighties would be aware of the Some Bizarre record label and the band The The. Andy Dog Johnson was the brother of Matt Johnson, The The’s only constant member. Andy Dog as he was known designed sleeves for the label and created the spikey artwork for several of Matt Johnson’s album and single sleeves, including Uncertain Smile, Soul Mining, Infected, Perfect Day, This Is The Day, Dusk, Sweet Bird Of Youth and many many more.
Andy Dog Johnson was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2012 and died on the 18th January at the age of 57. RIP Andy Dog. Condolences to friends and family.
