I bought this album at the Brutal Assault music festival because of the funny cover, but it's actually some great folky witchy black metal

It's not worth posting and the image doesn't exist anywhere that I can find. It's basically Cilla looking like Jimmy Krankie.

Was this a record cover? Not getting any luck via my "Cilla Black school uniform" google.

That's glorious! Only issue is the red text not being legible enough.

I really like Elvis Costello but I'm afraid I'm still laughing at that album cover and him calling an album 'Hey Clockface'.

I urge him to recall all copies and put it out again with the same artwork but called 'Oi, Clockface.'

The hand on the Clockface one is really disturbing to me, it looks like all the fingernails have been smashed by a hammer. Properly nasty.

That is easily one of the most horrendous images I ever did saw, but I actually *do* want to hear the album. I bet " I Don't Want To Go To The Gym" is a banging tune and a half.

Metabolist (aka The Man Who Sold The World) comes in both a 180g black vinyl edition and a 2020 limited edition handwritten numbered copies on gold vinyl (# 1971 - 2020) and on white vinyl (# 1 - 1970) all randomly distributed. We will not be checking the colour of your record before shipping to give everyone an equal chance.

November 2020 sees the 50th Anniversary of the release of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World in North America. The album marks the beginning of a collaboration with guitarist Mick Ronson that would last through classic works including Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane—as well as the first in a 10-year series of indispensable albums stretching through 1980’s Scary Monsters…
 
Originally titled Metrobolist, the album's name was changed at the last minute to The Man Who Sold The World. The 2020 re-release of the album under its Metrobolist moniker has been remixed by original producer Tony Visconti, with the exception of the track ‘After All’ which Tony considered perfect as is, and is featured in its 2015 remaster incarnation.
 
The Metrobolist 50th anniversary artwork has been created by Mike Weller who was behind the historically controversial “dress” cover which Mercury Records refused to release.

It's pretty much identical to the original US cover, to be fair.

Wow, that's a stinker. A masterpiece of a stinker. The concept of the eight-armed floating head (like a giant COVID made from indie) is terrible in itself, but coupled with that wanksnap's face...it's a beauty.

Listening to them now. It's like a post-hardcore Arcade Fire. I wasn't expecting them to be this creative but it is still shit.

Kudos to them using the exact same hand repeated on the album art but using lighting effects on half of them to make it look a little bit authentic. Ploppy looking lads with awful hair and no clothes though... ugh.

I like the clashing colours, reminds me of God Ween Satan. Aside from that, not good.

Be good if you went to see them live and that was what they actually looked like.

Stand-up guy and excellent songwriter Slowthai has a great new album cover.

How has Slowthai still got a career?
