Pablo Picasso's Never Been Called an Asshole (not by me)


UPDATE: This post was
re-uploaded 09/19/2013.
Enjoy, NØ







During a recent exchange concerning "Pablo Picasso" by Jonathan Richman, I had said I liked John Cale's version of said song. I found out not everyone is familiar with it, or the album it comes from, so...here 'tis.


John Cale - Guts, Antilles AN-7063, 1977.

  1. This album cover is a minor revelation, too, with John Cale clearly anticipating - or auditioning for even - Jason's starring role from Friday 13th a couple of years later. Chilling stuff.

    Phil Collins on drums ? Jesus.
