Helmet schematics, Moroder interview, photobook, music & more

The French robots who brought you the most ubiquitous song of the summer, “Get Lucky”, have decided to bestow their legion of fans with even more music from their Random Access Memories album.

Documentary on the indelible influence of artist Raymond Pettibon

So you pre-ordered Random Access Memories way back in 2012, and have been playing it on loop since it arrived in your inbox. You’ve bought the MEDICOM Action Figures for yourself and the LEGO-like MEDICOM Toys for your little cousins.
