I quite like the cover art. But then of course I know that it is Larry and his son Elvis and for people who don't know that, well...

On another note I stopped listening to SOI already and returned to the early stuff, so I guess the album isn't that good after all. Can't keep my interest in it up.

I abandoned it after the first three songs. For this I wasted an evening updating my iTunes and iPhone to be able to get this album? Meh.

Bloke's got no class - discussed it with the audience like someloser, didn't just throw a wobbly and stomp off leaving the band looking like a bunch of tits

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/ ... -his-voice

I believe that 'bunch' is the correct collective noun.

How did he manage to discuss it with the audience if he'd lost his voice? Through the medium of mime? Marcel Boneau?
