Sleeve Story #2 – Claustrophobia amongst the fleshpots with 3 In The Attic…

For every Some Like It Hot or Midnight Cowboy, there were hundreds of piss-poor B movies and X flicks made for the sole purposes of displaying flesh and soliciting dumbshow acting.  

Sleeve Story #1 – Cabin Stabbin… A house full of rum reggae toasters

Welcome to the first in an occasional series in which vinyl record sleeves are dissected for both being delightful and/or dumb ass. 

Mellow Music No.1

A crummy album from a bargain bin or dusty, damp back room in a shop may well have a few seconds or more of a weird beat/arrangement or strangely affecting voice/keyboard line. The rest is dreck but that one element is to savour, perhaps even re-deploy elsewhere to greater effect…

  Record: You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’, Sylvester’s scream of a release. Approach: Biro on paper sleeve. Much use of Stars of David and the word ‘funk’. The spirit of Bootsy (and being bored with school homework, possibly) lives large here.  Result: D.I.Y. fan culture is A.O.K.
