Hard-Fi Shuns Cover Art For New Release

July 30th, 2007 9:38am EDT
British rockers Hard-Fi are shunning record industry tradition by refusing to put an image on their latest album - proclaiming album art is dead.

The Cash Machine hitmakers insist there's no need for an iconic cover in the internet age, and have emblazoned their eagerly-awaited second record Once Upon A Time In The West with the simple slogan, "No cover art".

Frontman Richard Archer says, "We wanted to break the rules.

Hard-Fi front man Richard Archer found it hard playing a gig at last week's Glastonbury festival - as the event reminds him of his mother's death.

He says, "It felt like unfinished business going back. It was quite daunting. Last time my mum had gone in for a kidney transplant. We thought her life would be transformed. But I got a call to say there had been complica...
