My best friend Dale is a graphic artist, he's done some work for bands. I remember him bitching for an hour one night because a group accepted his design...but asked the he airbrush the nipples (he drew a 50's looking hot chick in a tight sweater, no bra) away. He did it, took the money....but I've never seen anyone get that bent outta shape over having to remove a couple "nipple mountains" in my life. LOL

Sort of related: I read a book about cartoonists years ago where Mort Walker ("Beetle Bailey") told a story about an argument he had with his editor that went on for years, over his depictions of various bathing beauties in the strip (in the pinups hanging on the soldiers' walls)... the guy would always tell him that he couldn't draw the bellybuttons on the girls (it was the '50s). Mort thought that was a stupid rule, so he kept drawin'em with bellybuttons and when he turned the strips in to the office the editor would cut them out with an Exacto knife. He sez his editor "has a box in his office filled with my old bellybuttons." Laughing

That Crystavox debacle pissed me off to high heaven. I had the original cover complete for like 3 months and then 4-5 days before it was to go to print, they decided it wasn't the way they wanted it. I don't even think I put my name in the booklet because I hate it so much.

Again, this one is deliberate. Bad News are a comedy band (with 3/4 of the cast of The Young Ones) who were effectively Spinal Tap before Spinal Tap

Dammit, I was gonna do that joke but I didn't have time to do a Google Image Search for a picture of Sleazy Laughing very hard

If they're not related, then they definitely go to the same hair salon!

Scottmitchell's mention of the Red Sea disc reminded me that even though I love the album, the cover is pretty lame. Not ugly, just boring...



This one (released the same year, on the same label) is no great shakes either. I assume both covers were done by the same guy.

It looks like someone was playin' around with the demo version of Microsoft Paint circa 1994, and the label went "Duuuuuude! That looks like, futuristic 'n' stuff! Let's roll with it!"
