Ok, so one of my many freelance jobs is with Beat Magazine. I write their rock/metal column (called Crunch) and do the occasional interview.
Last week longtime graphic designer Luke Benge finished up work and flew out to New York. Somewhere along the line, he allegedly swapped out the actual cover (reported to be Kaiser Chiefs) without anybody knowing, and replaced it with this.
I’ve censored the line drawing of the meat and potatoes for those who don’t wish to see wangs alongside whammy bars on I Heart Guitar, but you can see the whole kit and kaboole, as it were, on The Vine. There are 35,000 copies of this on the streets of Melbourne this week.
Bon Voyage, Captain Luke Benge!
