Blond Fuzz - Perfect Breakfast
October 23, 2010
Monica McGivern, on creating the cover:
Jordan sent me the album so that I could listen to it for inspiration... After a couple days of listening to the music (as well as Love Handles and the Dewars), I began
creating a folder of visual inspirations such as results from stock
photography searches for "black magic" and classic album covers such as the Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers. I also looked over album covers
from bands such as Spoon, Beck, and Velvet Underground as I felt those
vibes were hinted at through Blond Fuzz's new album. Once I began
shooting, it was pretty clear that I wanted to keep a simple graphic
element to the design. It really wasn't a long, drawn-out process; in
fact, I almost felt that the image happened too easily! Once I saw the
image in the frame, I knew I had captured exactly what I had envisioned. I
was a little worried about Jordan, Jeff, and David liking it but only
because I was becoming so attached to the image. If they didn't like it, I
had other ideas, but this image just made sense to me on so many levels
that I was very relieved to hear that each of them really liked the
