Cover

Janée Meadows recently sent us the artwork she created for the upcoming Donnas album. As a fan and the fact i think the cover is fantastic i couldn’t resist posting it. The artwork instantly takes me back to the great days of 80′s metal, especially the hair bands which unashamedly rocked my teenage years. Airbrushing was the weapon of choice on most 80′s metal bands covers and the dayglo purples and pinks set off the black works brilliantly. This cover could easily be the flipside to Motley Crue’s ‘Too Fast For Love’ but given a glammed up makeover. I really miss band logos like this and this would be totally worthy of being emulated in thousands of school textbooks and lockers.

Too Fast For Love

The Donnas supplied Janée with album covers from Girlschool, Blondie and Deep Purple (i have no idea what album this is) for reference.

Deep Purple
reference

Leather, boots and attitude. the band photo looks like it was taken straight out of an 80′s Metal Edge or Hit Parader magazine.

Back Sleeve

The Sisters are doing it for themselves. The purple feathers is a nod to The Donnas own label Purple Feather Records.

Inner Sleeve
Disc Art

It would be a crime not to release this album on vinyl, the artwork deserves to be treated to a larger canvas and would look perfectly at home amongst any hair metal collection.

  1. It’s actually all airbrushed! I thought it was a treated photo but when you see the LP it’s all air brushed.

  2. What about the back of the Creatures of the Night reissue?

  3. One more cover inspirated by 80s hair metal =)

    Very good songs and very good band!

  4. There are so many “nostalgic” album covers these days, but this is one of the best!

  5. “Too fast For Love” album artwork is awesome. It had to be at least inspired by the Stones “Sticky Fingers”. All bands should do at least one album with a crotch or butt shot.

  6. [...] Read a previous Sleevage entry about this cover here [...]

  7. Great Album… once you hear the opening track you will be hooked on these amazing unsung rock goddesses!

  8. there are eight references to anal sex in five of the songs on the album. Do you know which songs?

  9. which songs, and how do you know pigchop?

  10. It's pretty obvious. Figure out which songs/lines for yourself.
