One Question Interviews: Southpaw Records

Rob Fales (Southpaw Records)

SPB: Have you ever rejected album art from a band or artist? What goes into that process/decision?

Fales: Yes, we've rejected album art from bands. It's not something we do too often, only two that I can recall. There was a Sandwitches record we removed a penis from (for obvious reasons). Then there was the album art for Sam Coffey and The Iron Lungs Gates Of Hell that we rejected. The original artwork for Sam Coffey was very gothic and it made the album look like a metal record. For a band that sounds like a mix of The Exploding Hearts and Meatloaf we didn't see the connection and figured other people wouldn't either. When we asked the band if we could change it they were more than happy to do. We decided with the band to hire an artist to illustrate the cover.
