Okay time for some more dreadful album covers...

>
It's been a while since we had some horrid album covers so here goes again. I have no idea who the poor loons above are or what a Stuffparty involves. This is Stuffparty 2 so there must be some sort of call for this sort of thing.

The Handsome Beasts 04 - hmmmmm...

No, I don't know. I don't want to know either...

The rabbit has absolutely nothing to say as regards Faye Richmonde - whoever she was - and - erm - My Pussy Belongs to Daddy...


It is of course traditional on these occasions to have a couple of Gospel album covers. Here we have Butch Yelton and Upbound with Swing that Gospel Axe. If I were the young woman in the middle at the front, I wouldn't look so relaxed. There is a man with a bad haircut, nasty shirt and an axe pretty much directly behind you, dear

Okay, here's another one - Mike Crain, Karatist Preacher (sic) with God's Power. Words fail me...

Mr Jones came up with this gem in 1958 and wins the laboured visual pun of the century award. He digs chicks - with a digger/excavator. As you do.


Okay, let's end where we began with the poor loons - whoever they are - and the dread Stuffparty 1. Must be something to do with mental health week or something.
Allow the rabbit to assure any readers about to complain that there are much worse covers than the ones above- the rabbit censored out one Gospel album by The Brailletones on grounds of good taste - the cover made the infamous handless organist look in classy by comparison and the Limp Bizkit Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water on the grounds of general grossness. With Hat Tip to Laci the Dog, here is an interesting clip to end with.

I've seen the Dove video many times. The company has done a fantastic job with their "Campaign for real beauty" marketing. They also use "real" women in their TV ads.

As for the album covers, they always give me a good chuckle, even though you've censored your choices to keep things in proper pseudo-good taste.

I am still pondering whether rabbitt buttocks are hare-y.

wv: epope

Hahahahaha - the album covers are AWESOME!
The Dove video should be shown in schools to elementary kids, as far as I'm concerned.

"My Fancied Hero "
"Foamy Enriched" &
"Fancy Ride Home"

are all anagrams of Faye Richmonde

JoJo said...

Good god those are wretched!!! The Barry Lee Trio looks like they are 'on safari' at a dive motel in Florida.

Badger said...

You will be delighted to learn that Lars and his crew are still bopping in Sweden - and fortunately have grown up to be less ugly than they were on those covers.

That first Stuffparty cover is wrong in every way... It could be the poster for a Ben Stiller movie, like the 70s music industry equivalent of Zoolander.

I have learned so much from this post! Lively, entertaining and educational. Doesn't get better than that.

Catchy/Sybil - I'd never seen the Dove thing before. It must be to do with being male, single and daughterless...

Tony - Erm... Quite so. I think 'Foamy Enriched' is my favourite. I'd never heard of her either. Googling Faye Richmonde results in much tutting...

;)

Badger/Daily G - I'd never heard of Lars Kristerz and their - erm - stuffparties either. I'd have dated them from the 70s but it turns out they only formed in 2001. Blimey.

Little Flower - Educational it is chez rabbit. It's a well-known fact.

:D

Sorry JoJo - The Whatstheirname Trio indeed look like they are in a motel in Florida or something. In fact they probably were. Note to cover designer: try a bloody sight harder!

Michael said...

wow... great selection.

Love the lemon piping on the flared trousers in the first one.

And what's with the pussy/daddy one?? ;-)

white rabbit said...

Michael - Welcome to my humble blog. The lemon piping is particularly classy as all will agree.

As for Ms Richmonde, I have no idea save googling reveals a lot of mucky songs. It seems that's what she did...
