No. 1 is that awful thing by Coldplay (imagine how bad it would have been if Eno HADN'T produced it).

PM is correct. Butts is wrong!!! That's some good Googling there PM.
Seal

So, to recap (I won't let it lie):

1. A detail from "The Raft of the Medusa", a painting by Théodore Géricault Rum, sodomy and the lash - the Pogues

2. Joe Dallesandro masturbating
Dock should get this, he likes them - not masturbating. Well, he might like that too, dunno

3. A pastiche of the painting "Three Musicians" by Picasso.
Clue: it was done by Barney Bubbles

4. The painting "Annunciation" by Mati Klarwein
They are the subject of a recently revived thread on here

5 A black & white photograph of Moydrum Castle U2 Unforgettable Fire

6 "A Basket of Roses" by Henri Fantin-Latour It's Power Crruption and Lies by New Order!

7 A concrete piling on a slag heap at Easington Colliery Who's Next by The Who

8 An example of Delia Smith's cooking skills

9 Ex Formula 1 racing team Simtek's car Grand Prix by Teenage Fanclub

In my defence, despite my reputation as an aesthete, I do not claim to have an encyclopedic knowledge of paintings, hence my referring to a search engine, but only as an "educational aid" (as I believe internet plagiarism is now described) .

I did recognise the album cover as soon as I saw the picture.
