He's a whore / The model - Big Black

Big Black was an American noise rock band, founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1982. They weren't after mainstream success and didn't find it. Their aggressive music with pounding drums and screeching guitars was very influential, especially for industrial rock.

This single features two cover versions. 'He's a whore' was originally recorded by Cheap Trick, whereas 'The model' was originally recorded by Kraftwerk. The sleeve of this single imitates both single covers, with the three members of the band imitating Cheap Trick on one side and Kraftwerk on the other (the latter is pictured here). Both songs can be found on their second and final album 'Songs about fucking'.

My collection: 7" single no. 3033
Found: Record fair, Amsterdam, September 23, 1998
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'He's a whore' / 'The model'
