Thread: Album Covers and Their Artwork

  1. #11


    The perfect visual accompaniment to an album that's essentially the soundtrack to a Bukowski book. The persistent rumor is that the woman on the cover is Elvira herself, Cassandra Peterson but Peterson has said she has no idea if it's her or not, the 70's having been a drug-induced stupor for her and Waits being pretty fucked up around that time as well so neither of them really remembers.

    Screen grab covers can be hit or miss but they knocked it out of the park with this one. A still from a hallucination sequence in Ken Russell's Altered States (1980), it's an accurate visual representation of the apocalyptically heavy sounds contained on the album, which Godflesh main man Justin Broadrick has said was partially inspired by watching Russell moves like Altered States and The Devils (1971) after taking one too many tabs.

    Broadrick is a film fanatic with brilliant taste. Godflesh have used shots from Meshes of the Afternoon (1943) on the covers of the Merciless EP and "Crush My Soul" singles.

    The boobs look too small to be Elvira.

    Not a word on it but we all know what it is, don't we?
