Brain Tumors Ep...

i purchased this Brain Tumors ep recently from a distro completely based on how awesome the cover art looked. It's just rad, what else is there to say? Oh, well it's also a 4 color screen printed cover that was cut down and folded, so it is definitely winning DIY points in my book too...


Unfortunately the front cover is where this record peaks, cause the back cover is a swan dive off a cliff in comparison. I mean, talk about a missed opportunity! You have this rad, gritty, humorous illustration sitting on a sea of beautiful 3 color noise that wraps around to the back cover, why not draw up some cool looking song titles to match the front panel!?!? Or, if you are not feeling that, choose an appropriate font to do the job. You can barely even make the type out on this panel due to the fact that all the text is pink instead of black like it really needed to be. Seriously, it looks like the proper font wasn't installed in the file when it was opened in Adobe Illustrator but they decided to make the films anyway...


here is a shot of the cover unfolded to further illustrate my point....


A and B labels are a snooze, but I do like this grey marble vinyl!


This came out on Fashionable Idiots, hit them up for your copy...

  1. maybe the band is retarded and didn't know it looked like unintelligible bullshit. they have the sides listed as "SIDE 2" and then "SIDE 1" and then the record has "SIDE A" and "SIDE B". it also looks like the only "thanks" on there is to a guy for having his balls pierced and overdosing on heroin

    or maybe theyre geniuses and fucking with dorks
