Congrats to Field, the winner of the YES poster (he claims it's for his "brother-in-law", it's always a brother-in-law who loves YES). I'm heading out of town and will miss a couple shows but I trust Tish will be up to her usual curve-ball programming (LOVED billy the monster this week).

as discussed en route to the hood:

My vote would be for the early Prince album covers, the ones where it looks like he's trying to hide his penis. I'll just group them all into one.


and absolutely: aphex twin, windowlicker (in the category of portraiture--Prince is definetely in the category of narrative)

I love the Sparks' covers, especially Kimono My House and Propoganda.

I have to say all those Bruce Springsteen covers where Bruce is very much trying not to hide his ass. His jeans-clad ass. I also always like album covers that involve big baby heads or cake.

i'm fond of the cover for 'These Things Too' by Pearls Before Swine. there's something so perfect about that cover and the music inside. a living room record.

and a favorite has always been Iggy Pop's 'Lust for Life'.

and then there are the covers for 50/60's jazz albums. so strong - on so many levels.

and what about that early Bikini Kill LP ... the black & white cover, and that dress, those fishnets, and the shoes, and the moment captured ...
