'Straight Dad' used in Father's Day campaign...

Paperchase, the mass market cards and stationery chain of shops across the country are displaying ‘Straight Dad’ posters, complete with the message ‘Straight Dad – Remember him’.

The Gay Dad logo is the brainchild of designer Peter Saville, most widely known for his work with Manchester’s Factory Records and Joy Division in particular.

A band spokesman said: “All you can do is laugh at it really. I think it’s quite funny.”


Meanwhile, Gay Dad perform a one-off free show at London’s Soho Square on June 7 to promote the release of their debut album ‘Leisurenoise’, out the same day. The gig will start at 6pm, followed by an in-store signing at the Virgin Megastore on Oxford Street at 8pm.
