Who knew about HR Giger BEFORE Alien?

Be honest...who did?
I'll honestly say I did not, even though "Brain Salad Surgery" by ELP was an album I got into much later than upon its original release.
Of course, now, I think I have every piece of art (in print) that he ever did!

I had no idea who he was as far as his Works until many years after Alien, and well after Aliens.... it was about 1989 when i started to look into and know more about his Works.
But it was harder them days as we never had the Internet, you never had Ebay to go and find what ever you wanted... you wanted that missing Comic as you had issues 3-12 and 15-20 but needed 1+2 and 13+14.. Back before the Internet became mainstream which was very late 90's and more so in the decade that followed.... Back before this time you had a great difficulty to track down those missing issues.
So for me the only way to find HR Gigers works was indeed articles in Magazines etc
I hope that the only AWAKENING we are in for is FOX/RS wake up and learn from their mistakes.

I saw Alien in 1980-ish on HBO & was instantly hooked! The Big Guy in the Chair has been the ultimate sort-of-answered question I can remember? As far as H.R. Giger, I had no idea about him until well after Aliens, as well. I know I saw many pieces of his work & had never put it together that he was the creative genius behind Alien!
