Amazing Artwork! Bloody Party Freak ANDREW W.K. 20 Years Ago Today

Artist: ANDREW W.K.
Who: Hard rockin’ party freak from California
Active since 1993 / 6 studio LPs so far

Artwork: Cover of his debut album I GET WET
released 20 years ago today, on 13 November 2001.

The cover caused controversy in Europe, as it was seen to represent
cocaine abuse and violence. To achieve the effect, W.K. initially said
that he struck himself in the face with a piece of a cinder block during
the photoshoot but later explained that it did not lead to enough blood
flow. Consequently, he supplemented his own blood with some of an
animal which he got from a butcher’s shop.

The smashing key single
