Album Covers #15: Vinyl Español
Don't think that because you are an American, you have exclusive rights to horrifically awful album covers. Indeed, bad record covers know no borders; from Argentina to Zimbabwe, terrible cover art spans our entire globe - no country is immune.
Today, I'd like to focus on Hispanic perpetrators of bad cover art, specifically the Peruvians. I think you'll agree, they're on par with other nations in degrees of badness. Take for example, Vinko, shown above. Why is he sporting big permed hair and grinning sheepishly behind that disturbing mask? Why is he one minute wearing a top hat, and the next leopard print lamé? Perhaps, I don't want to know.
"You are the star" Karaoke looks a bit awkward. You really should have a few drinks beforehand to lighten the mood. It looks as though our friend at the mike is dedicating this one to you, the viewer.
Sweet Lord! Dig that chick on the sax! Is that really Julio's saxophone player? Somehow, I doubt it.
The guy looks like he's going to be sick; he seems thoroughly disgusted by this whole situation. He looks too old to be her father, so it must be the groom. Congratulations Maritza..... I wish I could same the same for the guy next to you.
I can only assume, judging by the posters and wallpaper, that everyone at this fandango is tripping big time.
Egad! Otto has a freakishly small woman in a bikini laying across his tabletop! Perhaps this is what gnomes or leprechauns look like in Peru..... or Otto is a keyboard playing giant.
I'm not fluent in Spanish, so I'm not quite getting something here. His sign, I believe, reads "room for rent".... is there some naughty connotation to this?
I was confused on the last one, but now I'm just completely gone. What the hell is going on? Here's Otto again - it looks like he's dressed as a chef... in his underwear... grabbing a hold of a couple mamasitas. No comprendo. Would someone please enlighten me on this one?
