One of the first comedy bands I have ever come across. It's not that serious, but excelent music, black humor and tricky lyrics full of allusions. Unfortunately they have never reached a bigger audience.
Seen in a sober light the cover has nothing very special.
But at a second glance a considerable optical tension is created by the strictness of the design and the cartoon card.
