i may be mistaken here, but it seems rather ripped is the first one of their major album releases for a while that seems to use artwork that was designed specifically for the record. most of them (apart from maybe ejt&ns and washing machine) have used selections of artworks, or works done by their friends. is this again perhaps symbollic of a commercial slant to the record, or am i delving too deeply into it? at any rate, id like to thank the band for introducing me to the work of gerhard richter and mike kelly...

I don't think its a commercial slant, I mean its not a pretty cover its a hard core cover but hell that's subjective hard core can be pretty to people just as puppies can be.

I think it brings more attention to the music it being a in house cover. For reviews. No ink will be spilled talking about any other artist other than the four responsible for the music





and i'm also wouldn't be surprised if theres an alternate cover with a candid picture of Dan Rather of cbs, drunk. Rather, Ripped so to speak.


ok maybe not, maybe




I don't this cover is less artistic than any other before it just cuz its two tone. Look at Psycho, Hitchcock only needed black and white. Who's is the artist for RR?

is that black lace on a blood red background? with 'Rather Ripped' in red superimposed over a black hole, ripped out of the lace? It is, isn't it?

yeah but...

i got into richard pettibon thanks to the goo art
i got into richard kern thanks to the youth
though not mike kelley, that was through paul mccarthy

anyway sometimes their artwork makes you discover artists that take a significance in yr life. not sure about rather ripped though. we'll see....

hardcore cover my ass.

punk doesn't mean lazy and uninspired

this is probably their blandest cover ever

Whatever, it's an album cover. Stick a cartoon nurse on it and people will lap it up.

It does seem to denote a certain atmosphere of violence... Especially with all the ripping... Maybe the violence is more of the emotional nature? Violent, passionate emotions?

I ripped your heart out from your chest/replaced it with a grenade blast...

That's from Incinerate...

Hey, thanks for the heads up. Probably a freudian slip on Richard Kern. Or Terry Richardson... funnily enough I got to see 2 of his art at the Statens Museums for Kunst last weekend.
