album86The Scorpions have had some truly shite albums covers over their 80 year career, fair play. How this one hasn't been featured as an Album Cover Of The Week already surprises even us. Even Uli Jon Roth hates it - "It looked ludicrous to me back then and looks just as bad today." Forget eye candy, this is sigh candy.....

deadend86Earlier this week Uber Rock’s Dom Daley had the chance to witness Wes Orshoski’s high anticipated film celebrating the life and times of the UK’s perhaps most criminally underrated punk band The Dammed. Entitled ‘Don't You Wish That We Were Dead’ our very own Disco Man is most definitely happy he isn’t as finally he got to see behind the scenes of a band he has long since worshipped.

album86It has been brought to Uber Rock's attention that too many so-called music fans are willing to pay good money to see some band well past its sell-by date mime its way through a set of songs that are "entertaining" because there's fire and shit on stage (and way more of one than the other). Our advice? Listen to a proper band instead, one with an album cover like this.....
