Regurgitator: Tu Plang

This album along with Tool’s “Aenima” and Sepultura’s “Chaos A.D” are the few albums I remember buying and still have on rotation in my Itunes. I’m tempted to try and find the original in the garage but then I remembered how much crap is in there and would rather sit in my warm bean bag instead.

Sadly I know little about the artwork and who is behind it. My guess is Quan from the band designed it as he also looked after their film clips too. But sadly I no longer have Quan on my speed dial to confirm :) I think Quan made the band’s website too? Which hasn’t changed since 2001!

Regurgitator is one band that reinvented themselves many times and also had a lot of original and tongue in cheek artwork. They almost deserve a feature unto themselves. But as those long features take ages I’ll just have post this cover until the Gurg get in touch.

It’s not often you get a cover that features a foriegn language so heavily on the cover. I can’t remember but I’m pretty sure this had a sticker on the front to so you didn’t get mixed up in the World Music section. “Tu Plang” is thai for Jukebox, which is how you would describe this album. It’s a mish mash of sounds and styles with songs juxtaposing the each other. That’s probably why it’s my fav album of theirs too.

Here’s the rest of the artwork. It’s been a while since I’ve seen song lengths on album artwork too.

Oh and I can’t mention the album without a nod to the hit “Kong Foo Sing”. That rocked my joint back in 96.

  1. Wow. That is beautiful..gotta make a trip to the record store…

  2. I was lucky enough to be sharing a house with their producer around this time. Heady days, indeed. I believe you are correct about Quan doing the design for this – I know he designed the cover for Unit. Their manager was also a designer, so maybe he was involved too.

  3. Great cover. I remember the texture of that cover too for some reason. It wasn't glossy, it was almost like recycled paper…. You gotta love the design on the first EP. The hamburger design. So simple. And I love how the design can be refered to name of the EP. I mean it is a self titled EP but is also known as the “Hamburger EP”. Genius!!

  4. hi, my friend sent me this link, which was like a blast from the past!

    Thought you might be interested to know a bit about the artwork. Rockin' Doodles were a design studio working in Glebe, Sydney during the nineties. They were responsible for many of the bands artwork including Regurgitators early releases. Myself and the boys, Ben and Quan from the gurg worked closely together on this particular artwork, which was really great fun. This artwork was actually nominated for a aria award but sadly missed out on the prize.

  5. Yeah you're right the paper was a thick recycled like stock

  6. Ohh interesting. Do you have any behind the scenes or more artwork to contribute to this?

  7. Wow, I haven't seen this album for ages? Did you stick around for “Art” or buy anything from Happyland the side project?

  8. Currently all the work from the Rockin Doodles days is in storage in Sydney. I am working in Scotland at the moment and don't have immediate access to the actual artwork. There may be some photos, I'm not really sure. I have had thoughts of going through all the old photos and work from those days and putting up a website for anyone who is interested. Though I'm not sure when that will be. Sorry I can't contribute anything at the moment. If I find anything I'll let you know.

  9. I'm still a big Gurg fan. Art and Happyland are on my play list.
