A throwback to September, 2006.
Walking through Hopkinsville, Kentucky, I spied this image on the side of a building. Old, faded, multi-layered painted store names and advertisements that made me laugh.
Young Hard Red Spot, indeed.
The humor and patterns caught the eye of friend and songwriter Kluso. We met 10 years or so ago when we both lived just outside Tokyo, Japan. He now lives further south in Okinawa, creating and playing music.
He decided to use this image for the cover of his third full-length album, Young Hard Red Spot, now available in iTunes.
And for those keeping score, of his three full-length albums, this is the third cover that he’s honored me with a request to provide the image. For more info on that craziness, click here.
