We all have those nifty MP3 audio programs, such as WINAMP or WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER that display funky animations on screen when the audio is playing.
And on our iPod / iPhone / Android devices, the music players will display the static album cover as artwork in order to give you something to look at while you’re scanning through your music library.
So why not put the two ideas together?
Whether it be a Morrissey fiddling away on a violin, watching The Clash break the guitar on the cover of London Calling, or Nirvana’s flying statue on In Utero actually flying off the album cover – it’s all about bringing the album art cover to life in some manner.
It’s all very Terry Gilliam / Jib-Jab / Monty Python-esque.
But Mr Dormouse doesn’t stop with just Photoshoping record albums. He also Photoshops kittens into famous rock-and-roll photographs with his ROCK CATS blog. Look, there’s a cat with Paul McCartney! There’s a cat hiding underneath Courney Love’s dress!
See, it’s funny because it’s true!
