who is boris akumanouta? in that picture it looks like nick drake if he became the kid in 'the ring'
My thoughts were: "The Virgin Suicides".
The Primal Scream cover is a piece of art/photo by William Egglestone who took the picture years ago, and as far as I know, the Wannadies copied the photo. So, you can accuse Primal Scream of music plagarism, but not artwork. Troof.
I see what you're saying and perhaps the Wanndies did see the Eggleston photo and were absolutely influenced by it but...
Primal Scream are plagiarising the APPLICATION of the artwork. In terms of using the idea as artwork to accompany a music release, the Wannadies obviously go there first...
And just look at the typography - it's far too close for comfort. Primal Scream must have ripped it from the Wannadies.
