Sleevage Sunday! #3

LESTARET-spizz-1
More famous for their excellent single “Where’s Captain Kirk?” than pretty much anything else they’ve done, as well as having the most name variations – Spizz Energi, Spizzoil and The Spizzles to name a few! They were Athletico Spizz 80 in (you guessed it!) 1980! and this was the first of two ‘proper’ studio albums – there are a few more EP’s, ‘best of’ and compilations that followed.

cassetteSleevage Sunday is where I share selections from my old but recently rediscovered vinyl collection. Music has always been an important part of my life, but so was the packaging. In my formative years I would carefully study every inch of the cover, read every sleevenote, credit and publishing blurb so that the visual qualities of these records became intrinsically linked with the music, so that even now when I hear an old song I also get the imagery too! Alas, much of this will fall upon younger heads whose only visual link with their music is the tiny thumbnail on their iPod…

I am not judging any of these covers – some are great, some are really bad, and others just are. These are simply the images of my youth.
