posted by February 25 at 11:41 AMon
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.
