Sorry HudMo, but this is just disgraceful:

Note the tit for an "O"

It wasn't long after this that they were kicked out of their local chapter of the Crips. "Have you seen what the Bloods can do with their gang signs? This is a fucking shambles!"

Look at the state of this:



I know it's only a cash-in best-of, but the lack of effort is galling.

Quote
Wikipedia: According to Irish bandmate Nadine Coyle, the first draft of the artwork included only the Union Jack, but she demanded the addition of the flag of Ireland.[7] However, the flag appears upside-down on the cover, resembling the flag of Ivory Coast.

I keep reading that as 'gaylord'.

That's got some bangers on it though - not least, Bang Bang. It probably says a lot that I thought it was a great cover and a really clever album title when I was about seven years old. Now, less so.

However, I was mightily relieved when I found out Robertson wrote Wired for Sound for Cliff - made a guilty pleasure far less guilt-ridden.

Edit: Just had a skwatch on YouTube - his videos really are a cusp-of-the-80s time capsule of Tennent's Lager Lovelies and comedy racial violence.

His song for the supergroup Brown Sauce beats anything he did with Cliff https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXgsfv2smLc

I like the way the clever album title inadvertently suggests a swift decline.

I made that mistake, it's pretty naff white hipster-hop from Australia.

Yep, I wasn't impressed either. The sleeve kinda reminded me of Airhead for some reason, but sadly the music did not.
