Laibach watercolour

 

laibach-watercolour

The next album I’m reviewing on my 195 metal CDs project is by the Slovenian and former Yugoslav avant-garde / industrial group Laibach, a live album called Volk Tour London CC Club (2007).

I’ve listened to it now a couple of times and while I’m still not entirely convinced by the album, I do rather like this piece of artwork on the inside of the discpak cardboard packaging.

What is it of, though?

Purchase or download

That’s the problem with being able to download albums these days (and I mean legally, via iTunes or similar): sometimes you spend two or three days hunting around the house, in the car, down the back of the cat, for the CD and box of something that’s neatly downloaded onto your hard drive.

That’s twice I’ve done it now. Once for a Gary Numan album, and now for an Exodus album.

I need to keep a database, methinks.
