Glad I got the spelling right.

My theory on the new logo is this. If you look closely at the geometry of each letter there appears to be two identical letters contained within each - but there seem to be slightly different things going on within each letter/symbol. The I, X and E all seem to be creating an effect by repeating the shape and duplicating in small increments in a certain direction, but the P and the S are not quite following that pattern. Nonetheless, the result is (I think) to convey the presence of two copies of each letter within each letter of the logo - and my theory is this is a clue that the album could be a double album. The information from FBF that he churned out some 40 or so songs over Xmas supports this theory.

I have attempted to illustrate what I mean in the following image.

Might be over analysing it - but if theres a code in there I may just have cracked it. I looked up the definition of the word Doggerel and its an old word used to describe a form of verse thats characterised by irregularity, sometimes for effect - which I guess describes FBFs style fairly accurately. Etymologically traces back to dogs I believe, and to be honest I just thought it was something to do with dogs or a word used to describe someone with dog like features. Expecting some mad vocals.

Pot, I think if you look closely at the logo inside the P there is an O and inside that there is a T

I'm not suppose to say anything yet but I'm actually the support act for the upcoming tour. Don't tell anyone it's a secret.

Fixies sounds like a catnip based cat treat.

Cheers. I just assumed it was the same person who designed Head Carrier, seeing as it's also a diptych.

Is it worth subscribing to that site for the rest of the article? I've got too many passwords to remember these days..

Cool. I see he designed the logo by hand as well. Maybe did it digitally first though, probably..
