Assholeparade - Say Goodbye 7"

This cover is screen-printed on a heavy cardboard sleeve. There were only 1000 made (500 each of two colors of vinyl). I like how the live scenes are subdued with the Nosferatu image more prominent in black. It's a No Idea Records release and their covers and vinyl both are generally beautiful.

I also figured Mark and Ray would dig this one for the horror movie angle.

I love it--original and creative without going too far down the Road of Cheese.

I like it too, but it has almost an earky 70's style to it somehow.

I'm going to say that's the Klaus Kinski Nosferatu of the 70s instead of the silent Shreck Nosferatu? Either way, great use of that image and how can you resist a band called Assholeparade? That's as good as The Slits.

David - That Road of Cheese is a fine line, isn't it? Some of the best stuff gets right to the line, but doesn't cross and some of the worst stuff just barely crosses.

Mark - I didn't get the early 70s thing myself, but perhaps you're keying into what Ray said below about it being the 70s Nosferatu.

Ray - I knew I could count on you to sort the details out on things like this. I'm lucky I even figured out that it was Nosferatu and not just some spooky guy!
