Why is it that boy band
s feel that no album
is complete without a cover
showing them sitting around in faux pissed
I don't listen to bands such as these, but you've see the marketing materials hanging in the record stores. They look like a yearbook photo of a middle school production of West Side Story.
It's just a bit silly, really.
"ooh, look they must've been really angry about something on the day this was taken! Goodness, I wouldn't have wanted to be in the photographers shoes that day!"
I can't help but think that if Simon and Garfunkel
's 1968 album Bookends
came out today, the cover would look a bit different
. Picture Garfunkel's finger
s clenched in a fist
, Simon's head
tilted angrily, his mouth a scowl
as if he's spitting
out the noise
