Amazing Artwork – MOTÖRHEAD 35 Years Ago

5 September 2022

Band: MOTÖRHEAD
Album: ROCK ‘N’ ROLL – the band’s 8th
Released: 5 September 1987 – 35 years ago

Joe Petagno (designer of the artwork) “I had this great idea and nobody wanted to listen to me. The original Rock ‘N’ Roll sleeve was supposed to be going up. I said, “Look, the tongue goes up. This thing is lifting off…it was supposed to be rocketing. So it was like a bomb. A projectile of some sort. When I finished it, they said, ‘We can’t have it going up, it doesn’t make any sense’. So it’s coming down. Couldn’t convince them. This fucking band.”

Amazing Artwork! R.E.M. 40 Years Ago

Great music cover art

1 July 2022

This August, 40 years ago R.E.M. released their 5-track debut EP CHRONIC TOWN.

To celebrate the event the EP will be released for the first time ever as a standalone CD with extensive liner notes by the original producer Mitch Easter. It will be released in three different formats: CD, Picture Disc, and Cassette on August 19, 2022. Pre-order info here.

Mitch Easter: “One might fancifully say that Chronic Town was the sound of an expedition, ready for anything, setting forth. If R.E.M.’s ‘Radio Free Europe’ single was a signpost, the Chronic Town EP was the atlas.”

I googled the Internet for about half an hour but I din’t find
any info about the image/sculpture on the EP’s cover.

Stream the original EP on Spotify.

Amazing Artwork! ABC 40 Years Ago Today

Eye-catching album cover art

British new wave romantics ABC led by grand voice Martin Fry scored a
No 1 hit in the UK with their glossy debut pop album THE LEXICON OF LOVE.

It came out today 40 years ago, on 21 June 1982.

Creem (former American music monthly mag) said: “It’s a piece of sumptuous kitsch.
The whole shebang is so florid, so exaggerated, so damned catchy – you want to hear the album a second time before it’s even half over.”

The album features repeated themes in which Fry experiences heartache as he tries and fails to have a meaningful relationship. The cover of the longplayer visualized his battle
of love.

Amazing Artwork – Cover Of New BRIAN ENO Echoing PERFUME GENIUS Album

Eye-catching album cover art

18 June 2022

PERFUME GENIUS, the artistic project of Seattle’s notable singer-songwriter
Michael Aiden Handreas has a brand new album out called UGLY SEASON.

The music of the record was initially written for PG and choreographer
Kate Wallich’s immersive dance piece, titled The Sun Still Burns Here back
in 2019. The place was performed in Seattle, New York City and Washington.

It’s PG most experimental LP so far, mostly instrumental. Its music reminded
me instantly of the early cinematic and ambient solo works of Brian Eno.

The artwork is quite striking too.

THE PRIVATE PRESS 20 years ago today, on 4 June 20002 (six years after his stunning debut Entroducing…). It peaked at #3 on the American electro-dance Album Charts.

used to put out tiny runs of music for fun, with no thought given to posterity.
