Muppet Rawk

posted by on February 25 at 11:41 AM

Ouch My Eye Gallery had a show this past summer called Muppet Rawk. Artists muppetly interpreted album art and paid tribute to their favorite music. Lawrence Ruelos and Dev Madan guest curated the event.

The Cure – Boys Don’t Cry. Painted by Paul Whitehead:

Beaker as the Cure’s Robert Smith. Similarities: Hair and high pitched vocals. Robert Smith says, “Kiss me kiss me kiss me.” Beaker says, “Mee mee mee.” Differences: Beaker is Dr. Bunsen Honeydew’s assistant. Robert Smith is no one’s assistant.

Van Halen – 1984:

Track five on the album is “Drop Dead Legs.” Kermy, when fried with flour, salt and pepper, and dipped in egg batter, could make for tasty legs.

The Police – Ghost in the Machine:

Animal, Piggy, and Kermy as the red digital read out. “We are puppets, made of material (world).”

The 1984 and Pig in the Machine artist’s names are forthcoming.

How about Robert Smith as Beaker? I think he could pull it off.

"Beaker as the Cure’s Robert Smith."

"Kermy, when fried."

"We are puppets, made of material (world)."

Trent, this is why I read your shit. Makes my fucking day.

I like how they put the mole on Piggy in the Police cover.
