|Robert Crumb's album cover design|
|It's a punk Lady and the Tramp!|
|It's how you feel if you watch Lady and the Tramp 2!|
|The guy in the middle is kinda cute in that cartoon gutter punk sorta way.|
2. Unknown Artist: Please comment if you know the name of this awesome artist, unfortunately as wonderful as the internet can be it is not perfect and I'm having trouble finding their name. So, for those of you not familiar, Malaysia is one of the most punk places in existence right now. If you don't believe me, check this out. Or better yet, check out the album cover to Malaysian hardcore punk band Appartus's "Hardcore Religion". This album captures street punk aesthetic way better than the corporatist mall marketed Western bands ever could. The band members look like they may be turning into crocodiles, guitars are hoisted with little regard as to holding them in a manner in which they can actually be played, and the guy on the left is definitely on drugs, perhaps from huffing the fumes from his flaming drum sticks. Sorry America and Great Britain, the most genuine expression of nihilistic youth now resides in the streets of Kuala Lumpur.
|When psychotics design Mad magazine fold-ins.|
|Siouxsie Sioux realness.|
Check in next week for part 2. Have a cover you think I'll miss? Think that comics aren't as punk as I'd like to think? Want to spew your random thoughts anonymously and without consequence (of course you do, you're on the internet)? Post a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
