I've never got this. Generally these 'cutting edge' UK people tend to get some good designers on board but to my mind this is freakin ugly. I think Fact included it in a 'worst sleeves' feature as well.
Not a sleeve but the picture on the middle of the Perversita record is horrible. I saw someone dj-ing with it and he'd actually made some pants out of a sticker and covered the offending parts of the masturbating under-age girl.
been thinking... it's hard to imagine mid-90s alternative record sleeves ever looking... not embarrassing... again (not that I even liked them at the time). what would have to shift, culturally, for people to go into that space again. I mean, what was that?
as far as 90s trends, rave and hip hop are probably a lot more likely to be picked through than "alternative", I imagine.
All of the above take on the hue of renaissance masterpieces when one flicks through the Freeman brothers' A Crack in the Cosmic Egg. The worst I can remember featured a cartoon cow with a pair of human breasts.
