Any of you chaps who fancy submitting a rendition of a favourite record sleeve here are more than welcome as I would like to get this blog ticking over in a similar vein to A Patchwork of Flesh.
My neighbour and fellow blogger Mondo does a regular podcast with his mucker Piley called Podrophenia. For their Xmas broadcast they asked me to join in, choose a couple of festive nuggets and blather on about Christmas related nonsense. If you fancy checking it out for a few Christmas tunes you aren't likely to hear anywhere else this Chrimbo, go here.
Thanks to Jason Garrattley for his his superb cardboard collage of Blonde On Blonde. Check out Jason's KIRBY-VISION a showcase for creative work inspired by the art and concepts of JACK KIRBY and his blog Between Clark and Hilldale.
Mrs Coop and myself love this LP and it's been a regular visitor to both the record deck and CD player over the years on vinyl, CD and now expanded CD. I've done this cover using watercolours, Magic Markers and felt tip pens
As a riposte to Mondo's VU sleeve, here is my remix of The Dickies speed punk version of the classic kids TV series theme. No computer wizardry involved here, just black card, chalk, charcoal, marker pen and a banana, 25cm sq. Anyone else think of a nana based sleeve?
