More of those album covers...

Wrikled Weasel rightly suggested that no religious album anthology was complete without Freddie Gage's legendary album. You gotta love those boots.





And the Handless Organist's heroics are challenged by this plucky trio:





But here's my favourite, as creepy a cover as was ever published. A must-have for "groomers" everywhere.

The Braillettes - top stuff, but is the one with the blue collar an imposter, or a guide perhaps? The other two are definitely Blunkettesque in the eye department.

As for poor Julie, it looks as though tonight's the night, as Rod Stewart would say.

Priceless!

Sick !

Are they real ???

He's saying goodbye to the sixteen-year-old by the way.

idle said...

e-k, regrettably, they're kosher. If you don't believe me, do a google image search.

I have a few left for my next post.

Wrinkled Weasel said...

I would love an evening with the Braillettes. I reckon it would be full of erotic frisson and little tactile moments. I imagine them nervously giggling and clutching the hems of their polyester dresses.

Yes, ok, I am a perv.

idle said...

WW, you aren't John Bult, are you?

Lilith said...

Julie's sixteenth birthday. Brilliant. I love the half burnt fag in the ashtray...compliments the beer perfectly and allows the viewer to imagine the fragrance and texture of Julie's first kiss...

idle said...

Yes, lil, the fag in the bakelite ashtray appealed to me as well.

If Julie had a border terrier, I imagine her first kiss would have been quite familiar. The terrier's breath was probably sweeter, though.

Tuscan Tony said...

re the Brailettes, you can have the one in the middle; I shall bag the one on the left. Re the final pic, is that Rohypnol in the glass at his elbow?

Mermaid of Moorgate said...

If she's 16, I'll eat my shells. Did someone give her a doll later for her 17th?

"Show me on the dolly, Julie, point to where he touched you."

idle said...

Alert the media! Put a crate of shampoo on ice in the bathtub! The Mermaid lives!

Wrinkled Weasel said...

According to Wikipedia (not the most trustworthy of sources, I admit) one of the Braillettes is not blind!

God, you can't trust anybody.

Don't forget John Daker. His rendition of Amore is priceless, as is Reza (First United Methodist)Unsicker's introduction.

I have watched Daker and his pianist. I have wept.

I urge you all to follow the Weasel's link.

Idle;

Oh bloody hellfire; so have I!

This must be the silliest site ever on the tube - thank god we have Wrinklers to find it...

Still laughing uncontrollably...

I could not believe that anyone would come out with an album entitled "All my friends are dead", so I Googled the name Freddie Gage.

I found him rated number 10 in the Guardian's Worst Album Covers in the World, which you can visit here

Number 4 gets my vote.

idle said...

You should have more faith, lakelander. I would not pass these off as kosher unless I knew that they were the McCoy.

I have an even worse Millie Jackson cover which I will share with you later.

The Lakelander said...

Millie Jackson's album cover is rated as 2nd worst in the Guardian's list.

For those who really want to see it, it can be found here

Thankfully, they did not issue a "scratch and sniff" version.

William Gruff said...

Millie Jackson? I recall that forty five years ago her boy was a lollipop. It makes one think.

Apropos of The Braillettes: It's something of a compensation to known that their hearts weren't signing.

William Gruff said...

PS: Typos = carelessness. I must stop blogging after after work drinking.

idle said...

Welcome, Wm Gruff.

After work drinking is encouraged on this site. As is pre-work and during-work drinking.
