    Worst Album Covers

    So @DiscothequeDave's comment in the New Music thread about the cover of the new Lemon Twigs album got me thinking...worst album covers of all time. Clearly there have been some horrors over the years. In the time to kill before the rumour mill really kicks off, do we have any contenders? I'll chuck this one into the ring because, well, look at it FFS.

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Lots on there I don't know, but thumbs up for Gaz Brookfield, Ferocious Dog and BoT. And I absolutely adore Skinny Lister live. Love love love. Dragging my brother to watch them at Beautiful Days, not giving him a say in the matter.

    Damn. I was hoping they'd be rubbish, save me the decision process. Cheers dude.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Has anyone seen Superorganism live before? They're playing Brighton in Oct but it's a Sunday night so not my favourite, but still debating tickets. Thoughts? Are they as much fun as they look like they should be?

    2019 Stage Predictions

    I've narrowed it down to FM or Hopkins. And I'm still not happy with you. And I know how much my approval matters to you.

My favourites so far this year: Mono Club - Sky High and Submarine The Magic Gang - The Magic Gang Manic Street Preachers - Resistance is Futile Jon Hopkins - Singularity Rolling Blackouts CF - Hope Downs Gorillaz - The Now Now Parquet Courts - Wide Awake! Spencer Brown - Illusion of Perfection First Aid Kit - Ruins Hopefully be something in there you like!

    It was good while it lasted, although I don't think you can beat shit album covers for a proper fallow year thread

    DT Project Coursework - Festival Cleanliness

    If anyone has any tips on how I can get home on the Monday without looking like Tom Hanks in Cast Away I'd be grateful.

    'Female, not British' artist for Sunday legend slot

    I honestly don't know how I'd feel about a Cliff set. You could be looking at Devil Woman Wired For Sound We Don't Talk Anymore Move It Livin' Doll The Young Ones Summer Holiday Take those as the "big ones" and throw in the inevitable rock'n'roll classic covers and Mistletoe & Wine for shits and giggles, and you've got a set. Get the Rik Mayall Young Ones vid on in the background as a duet and you're away.

    Amazingly that post still makes more sense than half the rubbish we all spout on here

    My brother is interested for next year. We did Download in '16 and I'm taking him to Beautiful Days this year, so using that as his training wheels. Conversation at ours on Saturday: Brother: So how do we get tickets for Glastonbury then? Me: Well... Mrs Q: (cutting across me) You basically spend the Sunday morning sat in your pants surrounded by laptops and phones pressing F5 until you win. Brother: (eyes widening somewhat) Oh. Right. I didn't really have to bother adding anything. He does work in IT so he got all excited about setting up a stack at work, but I pointed out the Eavii's dim view of such approaches. You'd like him @stuartbert two hats.

    How was it dude? I had a very late offer of a ticket but couldn't swing it at short notice Hello bud. Loads of good stuff been coming out this year, what sort of thing you after?

    Worst Album Covers

    I used the Google search to kick start the thread, but be interesting to see any that people have from their own minds. I'd never seen the YYY one before or whatever the hell Gumby posted!

    I dunno, from the sound of that first track it might just fit the whole shebang!
