6 Superheros on the Cover of Post-Punk & New Wave Albums
Being completely retro is out. Being retro while infusing geeky elements? That’s more like it. Like taking iconic Post-Punk & New Wave albums from the early 1980’s, and putting Superheroes like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman on the cover.
Butcher Billy decided to blend his love for The Smiths, the Cure and others with his cravings for Superheroes, especially of the DC kind, with the idea of Real people or imaginary characters, the incorruptible ideals of perfect superheroes or the human flaws and desires sometimes so desperately depicted in song lyrics.
Superman – The Smiths
A charming man of steel is better than a regular charmer.
Batman – Joy Division
No Superhero fits the song Shadowplay quite like the Dark Knight.
Wonder Woman – Siouxsie and the Banshees
When Wonder Woman is pissed, she does live cities in dust.
The Flash – Devo
No one whips it quite like Barry.
Plastic Man – The Cure
Stretching every day of the week.
Aquaman – Billy Idol
More like a blue wedding if it’s going to be under the sea.
