Cover art covered up: not porn, but troubling


The Manic Street Preachers new album is to appear in British supermarkets wrapped in a plain cover because it's just too troubling. Tell me what facet of modern would life would make it past the censor boards without a plain brown wrapper with that criterion. We are forced to witness so much offensive, cheap, ugly porn everyday and yet this needs to be covered up? I think the only cure lunacy like this is fire - really hot and plenty of it.

The album is called Journal for Plague Lovers, and the cover is by Jenny Saville. She also painted the cover of their 1994 album, The Holy Bible.
