This is terrible...



Oh dear! Sarcastic Bastard (link to left - a fellow squirrel fancier) has posted a couple of bizarre album covers. This set me off on researches for what I have a nasty feeling may be a recurrent theme. There are bizarre album covers all over the web like a rash. Most are by pretty obscure - erm - artistes but at least I've heard of Godley and Creme. I even spent a nanosecond wondering what happened to them before concluding that no-one could possibly care.

I've never heard of this dude but you must admit he looks pretty scary...



WTF??? Dear mother??? I wonder how WR's female readership would feel if this character appeared on your doorstep with a bunch of red roses. Okay how you would feel in the split second before you dived for the phone to call the police.


The next horror is from Millie Jackson. The 70s aren't called the decade that taste forgot for nothing.


A lot of the dreadful album covers are American Gospel records. The one above is just routinely dreadful but the last cover (for now) just defies description - or even comment...



I confess that when I saw this one I just corpsed. Does this make me a bad person? No, don't answer that. It's a rhetorical question.

now now.. such poor taste *L*
anyways, the blonde bloke in question is called Heino, check him out on youtube. Specialised in the slightly more mature female population of Germany/Austria and was a big hit with them.
everybody under 45 HATED his guts!

OMG!!! These album covers are just horrid....yet I can't look away.

I am laughing so hard. You have to do more of these. Too funny.

PS I always found Godley & Creme to be pretty odd; although I liked them OK in 10cc.

Thanks to all for comments. They are gobsmackingly awful, aren't they.

M - I did some research. There is a Heino adoration website. One can but wonder about the mental health of some people ;) Apparently he had some eye condition, which adds to the weirdness.Can over 45s hate his guts too? I want to sign up!

JoJo - Fear not! More horrors coming! I do feel sorry for what I take to be Fred Dickens' son being made to wear trousers like that :-O
The bloke in the hard hat vgazing grumpily at Millie Jackson amuses me too.

JoJo said...

Maybe the guys on the Millie Jackson cover are supposed to be the African American Village People? Hence the hardhat.

I think I've slept with both of the McDonald sisters at some point!
