  4. The LP that came out (the first LP I ever bought aged 9) had the back cover censored. This is the first time I have seen without fig leaves. Any chance of upping the back not at an angle? These are the originals then? That you own? And you are DJ food? I have some of your LPs too!

  5. Hi Jim, yes these are the originals, that I own, and I am DJ Food (being that this is DJ :)
    If you get the reissued Pleasuredome CD you can see the back cover without fig leaves, I provided photos and scans for it from these. I had to take the frame apart to scan the back cover in as the glass reflected if photographed head on. If I find the scan I’ll upload it. See my other entry about going to the ZTT master tape archive

  6. I would gradly pay for high-res scans of the Welcome To The Pleasuredome album artwork if you manage to find them.

  7. I have a copy of the ‘book’ ‘And suddenly there came a bang’ somewhere at my mums. With the tatty poster folded back up and replaced! Was that all Paul Morleys ramblings as I’ve read somewhere? Need to dig out and re-read actually as most if not the majority probably went over my head at the time. I was accomanying my mother who collected charity box takings from Northern chippies and sweet shops, when I chanced upon a copy in a newsagents… £1.99 was a major undertaking for a little lad. I probably had to beg mum for a loan!

  8. Bizarre that the art was created actual size. The gatefold illustration needs to be at least 20 feet wide to gain maximum aesthetic impact! Giant bell end couture!

  9. @Jim – yes, that was Paul’s stuff as well as all the bits he nicked from other authors, great magazine that.

    I think the WTTP art is a bit bigger than it was printed, not much but I got it framed similar to the way it appeared in print.

  11. I’ve been looking for these in print for some time. Can’t believe the’re not available anywhere. Great artwork. I have to admit to being more than a little jealous!
