Logo #172: Electric Light Orchestra
Designed by John Kosh for the 1976 E.L.O. LP "A New World Record". Jeff Lynne and his Electric Light Orchestra have a good dozen really stellar pop singles, but whoever does the licensing for any film even remotely resembling the work of Charlie Kaufman only includes their songs in the trailers - yet never in the actual film itself. It's like getting instructions on how to feel. Most distasteful. E.L.O.'s "Out of the Blue" LP has an image of this logo as a spacecraft, into which the Concorde flies. Strangely enough!
