Geoff Love meets Doctor Who
« on: 14 August, 2011, 09:10:17 am »
I came across the cover for one of the new Doctor Who audiobooks, "Tsar Wars" (sounds familiar) and thought it looked familiar.  I went checking through my old records and found...



I always loved the way they had to skirt copyright by making the Starship Enterprise and Luke & Leia not quite right.  (If I remember correctly, Music For Pleasure re-issued the Big Bond Themes LP because the cover looked too much like Roger Moore; bizarrely, the replacement cover had the back of his head instead.)

There's nothing new in Rock and Roll-or Science Fiction after all. ;)

Fool! Geoff Love spent the late seventies transforming everything imaginable into DISCO in an attempt to destroy rock and roll forever! Some of it really needs to be heard to be believed... observe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLM0VoTy8q4

Always loved those album covers, though.
The wages of sin are death, but the hours are good and the perks are fantastic.

This is not the first time I've noticed strange Doctor Who picture stuff from the BBC.

Back when the Christopher Eccleston episodes first aired, they had a running viral campaign for 'Bad Wolf'.  The website included an image of a wolf, which I'd flipped upside-down and became convinced that it must be a secret teaser image of a 'new-series' timelord in full robes...



However, I then discovered that the wolf was a stock photo, which cocked up my theory...



But it just goes to show how much upside-down naughty wolves can look just like timelords.

Well, that sure had me spluttering in me bran flakes - TOTALLY forgotten that album cover  :o
Think it was blanked along with the memory of playing it endlessly  :-[
The perspective on that chairs all wrong

Oh horror!

I've been in the cupboard under the stairs where I discovered, sitting nochantly like a couple of H-Bombs ready to explode two Albums that time forgot.

 At Western Campfires:Sons of the Purple Sage and [forgive me!] Rick Wakeman's Journey to the center of the Earth.

Yee-Hah Cowboy Hippy! Beat that for bad taste everybody!
