In 2003, French cartoonist Luz published an album called the Joke about his love of the band. The guy is a fan but he can't help making fun of the band (its several line ups, the booze) and his own addiction to it. Actually, it turned so much the band into a myth for a friend of mine that he got to listen to it (not Cerebral Caustic, which has some so-so reviews in the Peel Sessions box-set booklet, but Grotesque - another one that I like quite a lot).

Yeah various times is my favourite as well, when you get the 2CD reissues theres great artwork too, you get a cool little essay talking about the album, cultural context, the state of the group, that sort of thing.
