Sex Pistols designer Jamie Reid is the inspiration for Brighton-based Red Design’s front cover for a CD compilation released by the Hotel Pelirocco. One of Brighton’s original ’boutique’ hotels, the Pelirocco is known for its retro and bespoke interiors, with rooms inspired by faux-nightclub crooner Lenny Beige and the film Quadrophenia among others.

The CD features tracks from the likes of Primal Scream and Dusty Springfield.
