    Since Reluctant’s living up to his name I’m going to have another go:

    A field of undyed calico, inset an arc of pink flowers against a blue sky. The name of the artist and album sit above.

    Clue?

    Clue please! (I don’t know what calico is 🙁 )

    Ooh, can I play too? I recorded MTB races over my rock video collection on VHS tapes 🙁

    There is a video from 80’s Monsters of rock show, song playing very orange ‘artwork’ with grim reaper playing a violin, might have been nuclear blast in the background. What song and what band?

    No clue yet! Anyway, I thought someone would get it straight away – if someone gets it in the next hour, whilst I’m on the bike, it’s their go…

    mmannerr – best wait until the previous one has been answered or it’ll get confusing! Album sleeves only, I reckon. (Someone has to make the rules!)

    Come on lemonysam – what year??

    I’m sure it’s an 80’s britpoppy ting, but damned if I know which one.

    Got it

    Nick cave – lyre of Orpheus/ abattoir blues!

    Ok – maybe a tricky one

    Close up on the shaven head of the artist

    He is looking down at the ground so you can’t see his face

    He is wearing sunglasses and a very large gold chain

    Isaac Hayes – Hot Buttered Soul [edit]Removes “?” – definitely!

    Not when you’ve got it 🙂

    Yellow sleeve. Cartoon drawing of a woman’s torso wearing a black bikini.
    On her right tit is the artist’s name. On her groin is a gun, pointing at you. She’s got a fag in her left hand..

    🙂 Classic artist, maybe not one of their classic albums though (of which they have quite a few!)

    Alright another clue. This’ll give it away –
    album is from 2001, but they have releases going back to the late ’60s.

    I was pretty sure I knew this until you said that. Now I’ve not got a clue…

    Blimey. Er, ok. Hardly ever seen with a shirt on?

    Right:

    A severe looking youngish man in a grey room.

    He is sitting at a table.

    He regards a geometric shape on the table with a look of indifference.

    He is wearing a fairly sharp suit.

    F*ck!

    Too fast Dez, too fast…. 😉

    If I’d said “a look of cold, machine-like disregard”, would it have slowed you down?

    Ahhh crap, that’s the cover I thought it was, I just had the artist wrong in my head. 😳

    Iggy Pop?

    Ha! Not the album cover I was thinking of… d’oh (maybe it only exists in my mind…)

    No – the staring at the object thing gave it away. Mate had it back in the day, not something I’ve even owned!
    Someone else going?

    White border. A painting of a tree dominates the centre, with the sea and clouds behind. The tree is adorned with shells with a puffin in the middle.

    winner!

    🙂

    Ok – tricky one to describe this

    In the background is a mountain range

    mid ground is the name of the artist and album

    left foreground a man looks out of a window – a shard of sunlight / laser beam/ something (?) is coming from his head up into the sky. His eyes are closed

    That sounds like Stevie Wonder?

    yep

    Blimey, didn’t even get a chance to read it!

    Big fan of SW and this album, so jumped into focus straight away.
