They say good artists borrow, and great artists steal. In an effort to ensure greatness for the cover of our debut EP, No Yes No has stolen roughly 1500 times.
The end result is a unique cover for every person who downloads the free EP from www.noforever.com
. Each download composites a slightly different cover, which takes an ever-growing database of really wonderful and really horrible album covers (from artists respected, reviled and also totally unknown), cuts it into tiny little slivers, and bends it to our will.
While the basic form remains the same, the tone of each random cover is strikingly different. One click might get you a muted black & white landscape; another might get you a hippie Technicolor nightmare. Since the universe can be cruel and unforgiving, we have included a ‘Re-Art’ button which will allow you to click until you get a cover you like. You can also click the ‘View All’ to select from thousands of other covers to see if someone else got luckier than you.
(Lawyers: Please note the word ‘FREE’ if you can identify the single pixel-wide slice of your current cash cow’s work that has been appropriated into ours.)
In addition to this technology indistinguishable from magic, clicking the ‘Download’ button also gets you five tracks of actual music, made by semi-reformed indie rockers with laptops. Our names are Scott Altmann, Mark Pernice and Tom Mallon.
