The Rippingtons Cat Album Covers
Posted by Jakub
Can we file this under fine art? I think we will. I might be too young to say i’m a true fan, if anyone ask Beamer he turned me onto them and probably has the whole catalog on vinyl and cassette.
I am into this art, reminds be of my mom’s airbrush homework but with detail and a story. You might write them off one by one but as a collection i’m sort of feeling it.

Reminds me of Little Feat album covers. Sort of similar illustration style./Users/opiekub/Desktop/LITTLEFEAT.jpg

@BEEBO ./Users/opiekub/Desktop/LITTLEFEAT.jpg seems to be from you computer hard disk somewhere – i guess you were about to share an url instead?

@NITROFURANO Yes, Yes. No hosting, I’m sunk.

Personally, I can’t stand most of this 90s revivalism. Most 90s aesthetics were ugly enough the first time, so to have to see it again on vaporwave album covers and in high-waisted, teal-colored pants is really just revolting. Props to the Rippingtons for finding a theme and sticking with it, though.

Not only was “Curves Ahead” played on my dad’s stereo the sound of my childhood, but the band Bamboo Forest (some ex-Rippingtons there) was the first concert I ever saw.
Love it =)
