Pop culture treasure, high culture trash.

A thousand words

This Towers of London album cover looks familiar somehow. The monochrome, the alley backdrop, the pink script, the scrappy boy-punk fraternity carefully posed to confront the world--it's almost like they're...referencing something through their iconography! Trying to mark themselves as inheritors of some kind of authentic legacy!

Right, then.

I wish they would have referenced some of that makeup and those platforms as well, and maybe a wig?

Also: rollerskates. Plus, PLUS, obviously a line was crossed between stovepipe-jinx & o crap actually I can't bend my knees.
