Bunday Munday- Album cover art

(Every day with the angst)
---
This pic was mostly unintentional. Really. But I thought it had an album cover feel. What kind of music would buns make? Probably weepy. I'm thinking mopey emo crapola. Think Wilco with high-pitched voices.

Ok, I'm totally dating myself; do they still call them album covers? I don't even know.

Looks kind of Simon and Garfunkelish.....or something "New Wave British" like The Eurhythmics or Psychodelic Furs...I think you can just say Cover Art and be safe from dating yourself........

Cover art. Oh yeah. Though really, I don't really mind dating myself. I miss the underground 80's.

Ah, TFF and Psych Furs. My fave bands back then. And Siouxsie, and Bauhaus, and The Smiths, and The Cure, and Black Flag. Remember when you really had to seek that music out? If you were lucky, the local college radio station played it...

Oh my... serious flashbacks!

Chibi says "Decemberunderground" by AFI, or JUNE but she says that's a japanese band.

Mr. Greenjeans says: "Eco and the Bunnyman"

Nee says Blue October would have cover art like that. (But they're kind of EMO), Depeche Mode, or Switchfoot, or SongsToWearPantsTo has a bunny song.

Me? I vote for Simon and Garfunkle.

I'm going to dinner, the girls are still twirling their ipods... taking the assignment seriously...

My buns would be singing country. Sometimes sad, sometimes uplifting. We named Clint after Clint Black after all!

And OMG Ilex, I listened to all that punk stuff in high school. I have a girlfriend who still loves Peter Murphy (Bauhaus).

Yes, I loved all those bands too, in fact I played them at the local college station and the community radio station! Can I throw in Grace Jones and Nona Hendryx plus some Buzzcocks, for nostalgia........

There's nothing wrong with dating yourself, but it's also fun to date other people. That way there can be a designated driver.

Speaking of cover art, and taking it back to the 60s, there's an amazing DVD regarding a little known (outside of the industry) photographer how captured the images on some of the most iconic albums of that day - Crosby Stills and Nash, Doors, Hendrix, etc. His name is Henry Diltz and there was a gallery showing of his work near Santa Barbara a couple of years ago. The DVD tells the back-stories of many of the covers and has some cool Super-8 footage from "the day."

Here's a bit of info about the DVD at Amazon.
