neil why because clapton looks like and is a gigantic prat

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 8 March 2013 18:38 (five years ago) Permalink

neil does have the most iconic handwriting...i wonder how many of his albums use that? a lot of them for sure

neil obv kills clapton on every level, and his cover's "oh hey i shot this with a shitty old nokia phone" is pretty IDGAF....that said...literally calling your album OLD SOCK is kind of incredible

the Clapton font is really really unforgiveable

Donkamole Marvin (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 8 March 2013 18:43 (five years ago) Permalink

also Clapton in general is really unforgiveable...

I always die a little inside whenever I have to bite my tongue about him around various relatives

Donkamole Marvin (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 8 March 2013 18:44 (five years ago) Permalink

also that Clapton is somehow managing to slightly peer DOWN in that photo is just FUCK OFF

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 8 March 2013 18:45 (five years ago) Permalink

the clapton looks like it was swiftly made with CorelDRAW v. 1.4

the neil looks like the hand-sharpied product of an unhinged mind you'd find in a salvation army five-for-a-buck pile

advantage: neil

I guess what Eric is trying to tell us is that he is an ass:

though i guess the poll is about SWAG, and clapton's looking all pleased with himself, clearly on vacation on his estate on some island, so...

I'm only talking swag, Clapton's has swag, Neil's...not so much

chr1sb3singer, Friday, 8 March 2013 19:35 (five years ago) Permalink

he should have called it COCK SOCKET

goole, Friday, 8 March 2013 19:36 (five years ago) Permalink

Neil's photo looks like he press the photo button while he falling down.

Clapton is getting blown while rich guitar playing lawyers pay huge sums to tell him how cool his tones are

well, no he shouldn't, i just felt like writing that out

Actually the only way I'd ever respect Eric Clapton even a little bit is if he changes the name of this album to I'M AN ASSHOLE

cwkiii, Friday, 8 March 2013 19:39 (five years ago) Permalink

neil - "I wash born here, an I wash raished here, and dad gum it, I am gonna die here, an no sidewindin' bushwackin', hornswagglin' cracker croaker is gonna rouin me bishen cutter."

eric - "this pic was taken on the beach by our summer home in hawaii. not pictured, beach and home obv! :P"

Neil - Yr weird deadbeat uncle trying to figure out how a polaroid camera works
Clapton - VP of yr office on a weekend vacation

or what al said

set the controls for the heart of the sun (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 8 March 2013 19:45 (five years ago) Permalink

neil looks like he got too close to the camera after setting the timer and then just said fuck it and used the photo anyway
clapton looks like the kind of disgusting old men my former roommate used to sleep with

advantage: neil

Love Neil, don't care for Clapton but gotta vote for the latter cause Neil's artwork here feels far more affectedly shitty. Clapton's is just a lapse in taste.

Which is to say, lazy enough to be TRULY IDGAF

Interestingly, Old Sock was originally titled Racist Fucking Piece of Shit.

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Friday, 8 March 2013 20:03 (five years ago) Permalink

all these arguments against clapton ironically add to the evidence that he gives less of a fuck. young's cover is somewhat calculated while clapton is effortlessly and repulsively lame.

To be fair I am peppering yr work email with supporting claims.

We've already put in twice the work the Shakey or Slow-Hand put into their respective album covers

DON'T LISTEN TO THEM m@tt

Clapton's effortlessly says Hi I'm a Right Bloody C--t and whether he did it on purpose or not he's still Eric Clapton therefore he loses

aka the Don Henley equation

it's really the 'swag' part of the equation, being a cunt is often an important part of swag

Also we all need to step back and think on one thing:

Eric Clapton has a new album. That album is called OLD SOCK. OLD SOCK! SERIOUSLY

chr1sb3singer, Friday, 8 March 2013 20:38 (five years ago) Permalink

This is new?! I had just figured that it was some forgotten thing from the 90s or the 00s.

It comes out next week!

is it more or less punk rock than 'monster'

mookieproof, Wednesday, 26 February 2014 00:32 (four years ago) Permalink

I think Peter Buck was on record saying that if it was up to him
REM albums wouldnt even have any artwork, just white space, and something to distinguish it from the last album, as if he was talking about Chicago albums or whatever

Although maybe the White Album has kind of ruined that for everyone else

Master of Treacle, Wednesday, 26 February 2014 00:38 (four years ago) Permalink

I get that, REM album covers were pretty consistently bad, imo.
