ALBUM ARTWORK OF THE WEEK

ALBUM ARTWORK OF THE WEEK

ON THE CRIME-INFESTED EAST SIDE OF LOST GATES CA, THERE IS A VINYL PRESSING PLANT WHOSE BROCHURE SAYS, “WILL DO ANYTHING FOR A PRICE.” BACK IN THE 70S & 80S, THEY SPECIALIZED IN PRIVATE PRESS PORNO SOUNDTRACKS, BUT THESE DAYS MADLIB was THEIR ONLY CUSTOMER. 

DELIVERING THEM A COUPLE QUASIMOTO TRACKS WITH A DRAWING OR TWO, HERE’S THE RECORD THEY RETURNED: A CUSTOM-SHAPED, HALF PICTURE DISC, HALF CLEAR DISC, WITH THICK VINYL. ONE SIDE IS QUASIMOTO’S “PLANNED ATTACK” FROM THE ALBUM YESSIR WHATEVER, AND THE FLIP SIDE IS THE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED “TALKIN’ SHIT,” A SHORT TRACK WITH LORD QUAS DOING WHAT HE DOES BEST. BOTH TRACKS ARE PRODUCED-BY AND FEATURING MADLIB. ARTWORK BY JEFF JANK. 

PICTURED ABOVE IS THE FRONT, FAMILY-FRIENDLY SIDE OF THE VINYL. THE BACKSIDE OF THE RECORD, THE “X-RAY” PORTION, SHOW’S QUASIMOTO DISGUSTING INSIDES.
