[Lo sapevate? Sapevatelo!] Sonic Youth vs The Twilight Sad

Sonic Youth - Goo (1990)
The cover is a Raymond Pettibon illustration based on a paparazzi photo of Maureen Hindley and her first husband David Smith, witnesses in the case of the "Moors Murders" serial killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, driving to the trial in 1966. (#)

In 2008, Scottish band The Twilight Sad released an EP called "...Killed My Parents and Hit the Road". The name and album artwork, which features a re-work of the Goo cover in the style of previous Twilight Sad artwork, are homages to Goo. According to vocalist James Graham, guitarist Andy MacFarlane came up with the idea, and noted that "[The Twilight Sad] were playing in America with Mogwai [...] and Thurston Moore [came] to the gig. So we were thinking "fuck" and hoping he didn’t see the merchandise table. They haven’t sued us though. Yet." (#)
