"Kim's long-time friend Mike Kelley designed the artwork for "Dirty", which depicts a series of somewhat innocent, somewhat creepy stuffed animals. The cover features one of these creatures, and the insert folds out to 6 pages, each featuring a different animal (and a portrait of a young Mike Kelley). The malicious grinning bear appears only on the vinyl and CD longbox (and the cassette, I think), as does the one-eyed monkey. The other side of the insert has the album credits on one panel, and the remaining five are blank (one wonders if these were intended for the lyrics, which are again not included). The back features individual band member portraits by Richard Kern. The vinyl art has things switched around a bit -- the back cover includes the animal pics & the track listing, the sleeves have the (full-sized) band pics and the credits. Both 12"s are on orange vinyl. The vinyl was released in Australia on Waterfront, packaged in a cotton bag with a large "Dirty" poster (this set was limited to 1000). There were a few different CD versions -- the initial longbox release; the Japanese CD w/ "Stalker" as the final track (and likely unofficial lyrics); and the not-so-limited edition "dirty picture" version with a tray liner photograph depicting performance artists Bob Flanagan and Sherry Rose, naked, defiling various stuffed animals. By the way, random stuffed animals similar to those featured on the cover were sold at "Pretty Fucking Dirty" tour shows, each bearing a "Hug Me I'm Dirty" button"

Most people here probably know, but since it hasn't been mentioned yet: the audio of SY's performance for "Plato's Cave, Rothko's Chapel, Lincoln's Profile" can be listened to on Ubuweb. Some other recordings of Kelley there too.

I saw that, and it's really sad.

Dirty's cover is an all time great. I don't know why, but it's just totally emblematic and perfect.

RIP, sir.
