Agenda: Historical, Contemporary, John Peel Stage
Bauhaus existed mainly in the 70's and 80's with a brief comeback in 2008 but then broke apart soon after. They inspired many modern bands and were hailed as the innovators of Goth rock and similar sub genres.
Their logo and name takes heavy inspiration of the Bauhaus art movement which existed between 1919 and 1933. Some of the bands artwork, logos etc. Follows similar traits of the art movement with bold shapes, straight lines and a simplistic style. This overall helped create unity among the promotional material.
Their posters stuck to the bands chosen aesthetic of black and white and a simplistic but effective style. This again helps create uniformity between all the promotional material
The merch associated with the band again followed suit with the bands chosen style and atheistic further helping solidify Bauhaus as a music brand
Bangtan Sonyeondan, also known as BTS is a South Korean boy band. They made their debut in 2013 and are now one of the most well know groups in Kpop.
Their logo consists of a bulletproof vest and lightning bolt. This matches both their image and band name as Bangtan Sonyeondan in translates to 'Bulletproof Boys' and their overall images is a very powerful and masculine image.
Most of their posters are fairly simple, almost all of them are photos of the group together with little to no text.
Most of the bands merch follows the simplistic aesthetic that the groups has. Most of it is in black and white with pops of colour.
Enter Shikari are a British rock band who started in 1999. When they begun they didn't have any definite goals or aims but they noticed people were listening to them & used this publicity to bring up bigger issues so they have been labeled and stereotyped as a political band.
Their logo is very simple & consists of three geometric shapes (in some versions of the logo it is just the triangle & the one circle, its unknown why this is). The inverted triangle is supposed to represent an inverted version of society's pyramid deception of "classes" in society such as lower class, higher class etc. Roe Reynolds & Rory Clewlow stated in an interview with Mind Equals Blown Interviews that the meaning is because they believe the power should belong to the majority as they are the foundation of society.
The posters are simple and easy to gain information from making it a effective poster. They tend to shy away from photos of the bands and replace that with graphics created for them.
Most of the merch is simple yet effective, its also easy to manipulate and create different versions on. Their merch matches their image, making it more effective for the band to identify their fans.
