Title: MOUTH BAND FRAMED RECORD COVER ALBUM - Rare ...
Publisher: London, England: Recreational U. K., 1981
Book Condition: Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: None, As Issued
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. 1 pages. Published in 1981. Rare Mouth Band, contemporary graphic design, and post-punk collectible item. Mouth Band's debut vinyl record. The record album cover is very beautifully (and unobtrusively) framed in handmade black matte finish metal of the highest quality. The album itself is complete, with the pristine vinyl contained inside (the vinyl's edge is just barely visible as a ring on the upper portion of the cover). The cover design of the album is one of the most brilliant ever conceived and realized in the history of record album graphic design: A couple's tender kiss forms into one large, red-dominant, and wide-open mouth. The music is "Oh, Ah, Yeah!" and "Ooh?", two instrumental tracks in the same vein as Pigbag, Maximum Joy, and Rip Rig and Panic. An underground four-piece band which thrived in the heady 1980's British punk/rock scene, there is very little information today on Mouth, their debut single is quite obscure, and yet, their eponymous album deserves its place among the great cover album designs of the 20th century. William Klein would surely have been delighted by its brilliance, the sheer energy with which it pulsates, mirroring the fast, cool, and hip dance-rhythm music inside. A genuine rarity, this is an absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Mouth Band, contemporary music, and graphic design collectors. This vinyl record is now rare. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. One of the greatest graphic designs of the 20th century. A fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 14226
