    here’s one for ya,

    The edges and borders of the cover appear to be bound in strips of grey/silver gaffer tape, with the centre part dominated by a large toothbrush head on a glowing backdrop

    Therapy? Troublegum? Is he in a morph suit? His head is definitely in a bin…

    sorry raz- no idea either.

    clue on my one is the artwork is quite ‘pop’ style, and a classic from the 4AD label.

    Yep, that’s it. Looks a bit like a morph suit.

    I thought he was nude and wrinkley! πŸ˜€

    OK, mine’s a mummified body hanging upside down from machinery, with a brick wall behind, and hands reaching up from machinery beneath.

    Weirdly I have a different cover in my mind for that and had to look it up. possibly it was released with a different image?

    edit: UVS I mean. Don’t know Mrs Toast’s one.

    Correct, Lifer. I’d post a picture of it, but I’m on my iPad so it’s a bit of a pain in the arse!

    Trying to think of hints that won’t give too much away.

    3 songwriters who do the lead vocals on their own songs.

    Released mid 2000s, band still going

    I’ve worked it out thanks to the hint – but I had to do a google so I’m disqualifying myself

    Hang on, it’s my go πŸ˜›

    I have drawn from memory a classic album of the 80s:

    I have a couple of classic albums for you:

    1. Black cover with black skull tattoo. Band and title white at the top.

    2. Bearded man with leather jacket, collar turned up in the rain.

    3. Blonde woman in bikini against an ancient landscape. Album title is spelt out in nekked people font.

    4. English king (with many wifes) with cut out of head where the cd inside rotates with five different heads (my favourite being the cat one….). Okay that one is actually pretty obscure.

    5. Woman with long black hair and a red dress floating in water.

    6. A man staring out to sea, some sun loungers, a parasol and a mostly buried car….

    I know. Rules….

    No one? If it helps, the singer, whose name is in that of the band, is front centre.

    Hmm, friends of mine are off to see SLINT tonight- how strange.

    Slint track playing on 6music right now…. Breadcrumb Trails. From the green man festival.

    (Thought it was Shellac though… 😳 )

    MH- Number 2 is “Whats Going On” by M. Gaye?

    Is Number 4 “The 6 Wives of Henry” by Rick Wakeman?

    Cody –

    No 2: yup πŸ˜€

    No 4 – nope. Much more profane than that (that’s a clue btw)

    Sam, not being rude, but;

    You know the big round thing with the two pointy things?

    Is it an island, a hill, a cake or a horned demon of the darkest, blackest Metal?
    πŸ™‚

    LS- is it “Goodbye Cruel World” By EC and the Attractions?????

    I could see it in my head for about 30 mins :/
