Not BORIS JOHSON But This DEMI LOVATO Album Artwork Is Offensive To UK Christians

15 January 2023

Albuquerque‘s songstress/actress DEMI LOVATO released
her 8th LP HOLY FVCK last August. So far, so good.

But the news came out now, that the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) received
4 complaints out of the UK and started an investigation, resulting in a UK ban of the
LP’s artwork to be used as promotion for “likely to cause serious offense to Christians.”

Holy fuck. What year is this? 2023 or 1923?

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.
