You may recall that last week we featured the sleeve for last year's Bowling For Soup single 'My Wena' alongside efforts by Shayne Ward and Belinda Carlisle in a roundup of terrible cover art, adding that "even with an impressive 2:1 in Media Studies we're having trouble decoding this one".
Well, help is on hand in the form of an email from Andy Medhurst. Andy is Senior Lecturer in Media, Film & Cultural Studies at Sussex University. He was also our tutor when we were at Sussex.
Speaking as somebody, erm, implicated in your 2.i in Media Studies, that hideous penis sleeve (a new death metal band name?) is obviously a classic example of displacement.
They had to put a woman in a dick suit to displace the desires they feel for licking each other's bits. That would not be representable in any known universe, obviously.
And don't be so mean to Belinda's Voila — I love that album!
Well that clears that up, then. We hope there is never another reason to feature this CD sleeve on Popjustice.
