Clock DVA - Thirst

This might be pushing a concept too far, I dunno. Anything that helps annoy a phalanx of Strokes fans has to have some merit in it, surely? 

As before, I showed six album sleeves to my Caboolture KMB003 (Sex Drugs Rock N Roll) students, and asked them to figure out what the music sounded like from the artwork alone.  None of the students had heard of the artists before. Here are their responses.

AFRIRAMPO – AFRIRAMPO

AfriRAMPO album sleeve

world music, soul, trance

CLOCK DVA – THIRST

Clock DVA - Thirst

industrial, rap, power-violence grindcore, Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein

MATT MONRO – MATT MONRO

DUB NARCOTIC SOUND SYSTEM – OUT OF YOUR MIND

    You might want to ask people before using their photos next time, would have been nice. At least you didn’t cut out the watermark.
