More about the Trio

I love the Alkaline Trio. Their first disc came out in 1998 . Since then, they have followed with many incredible offerings.  While top 40 success has evaded (probably due to their lyrics being dark and a little vulgar), they have a large following. With their fun blend of pop punk and macabre lyrics, they are my kind of band.  I am determined to turn at least one reader onto them, The artwork they employ for their tours, albums, t-shirts is so great.  I am gonna feature a little of it here:
 









  
 
I especially love this one - a take on Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart".

  3. Really great artwork - I'm going to go downstairs and take a listen right now (mostly because the Super Bowl is on and I need to get out of this room). ;)

    1. Yup the stupor bowl, stupid bowl whatever. It interests me as much at watching paint dry. In fact, depending on the color that might be more exciting.
