Buh, I quite like it, mainly because it reminds me of NYC G&F booklet's inner pages, and I love those. Now I'll celebrate with a new avatar.

I like it...
The Destroyed Room - Jeff Wall 1978

'My first pictures like The Destroyed Room emerged from a re-encounter with nineteenth-century art', Wall has said. Here, the work in question is The Death of Sardanapalus (1827) by Eugène Delacroix, which depicts the Assyrian monarch on his deathbed, commanding the destruction of his possessions and slaughter of his concubines in a last act of defiance against invading armies.
Wall echoes Delacroix's composition, with its central sweeping diagonal and sumptuous palette of blood reds, while acknowledging its staged atmosphere by re-composing the scene as a roughly fabricated stage-set, absent of any players. 'Through the door you can see that it's only a set held up by supports, that this is not a real space, this is no-one's house,' he has commented. Though clearly a woman's bedroom, the cause of the violence is unexplained, leaving the viewer to speculate on the sequence of events.

My guess is that the photograph was the original inspiration for the song... or they saw the title and decided to use it... so they are merely revealing the source by using it on the sleeve of the compilation... not being throwaway or too literal as some people have mentioned.

I'm willing to bet on it.

snare_boy ain't too shabby
i also assumed they titled their song (which for some reason is NOT on the album) coz it's a photo reflectting the band's taste in art. one of a million, to be exact

I like the fact that the delicate figurine still stands safely in place, aloof and unaffected by the chaos surrounding it. It suggests that the room was destroyed in a deliberate and almost controlled act, as though someone was searching for some hidden item rather than through anger.

It is not only a good image but also a disburbing one on a par with this one:
 


The feeling that violence or mental illness inhabited the room is quite powerful.

I was kind of thinking of mental illness or paranoia, or something along those lines. Searching for something that's entirely in the mind of the searcher.

porkmarras: your dancing cat reminds me of the character Cat Kit from Rakuga Kids, a silly beat-em-up game on the N64. He had a taunt very similar to that.

haha.Thanks Hip Priest.I've found the image particularly affecting because it reminds me of going to see a friend who has some anger management problems and takes it out on the furniture of his flat.Spotting the odd door missing or something smashed and left on the floor makes me feel slightly uncomfortable round his,sometimes.

the destroyed room- a dirty era b side reworking of an old goo era instrumental, they put a kim vocal on it and ruined the song hence the bedroom became the destroyed room......

we got the album at the radio station i work for, and i seem to remember it being a band photo on the cover. i was a bit drunk when i saw it, though, so i could be wrong.

The above 'extra' quote is by Paulbeebee ..sp ?...

Anyway...I just got this cd. There are only 11 tracks on it....it doesn't have "It's my body" the the originial thread starter says is on it.....

He said it was 79+ minutes and mine is 76+ minutes....It's my body is 2:52...so there's the discrepancy. Does anyone know what happened ? Where's the error ? In the intial tracklist ?

I already have it's my body on, I think, the Goo deluxe edition...so I won't miss it...but I wonder why they left it off....hmmmm...

And....The Bedroom was supposed to be on it...with added vocals ?....I don't quite understand....

Anyone help ?...thanx...
