Death From Above 1979 – You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine
‘Death From Above 1979’ are a Canadian rock band made up of Sebastien Grainger (drums/vocals) and Jesse F. Keeler (bass/synthesizer). The duo feature as illustrative elephants on the cover of their debut album ‘You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine’ which was released in 2004.
The cover art is simple and striking. The vibrant, brash pink is matched by the sounds of the music contained within. Grainger & Keeler’s sound on the record is loud, bold and noisy, a mix perfectly captured by the visual style of the sleeve.
The elephantine caricatures appear to be a riff on the artwork from the band’s debut recording (pictured below), a six song EP titled ‘Heads Up’. Released in 2002, the cover art features Grainger & Keeler depicted in a similar style, back to back with trunks for noses, this time on a bright orange background.
