Welcome to the Machine

The designs on this wide polyester tie from Rooster resemble the cartoonish "technical" markings that master album-cover designers Hipgnosis overlaid on a lot of their cover photographs (e.g. Brand X's Moroccan Roll). (By the way, that is the late, great musician and Hipgnosis partner Peter Christopherson himself on that album cover; see For the Love of Vinyl for the story behind it.)
